Really noisy raw footage and a few other questions.
« on: July 02, 2013, 03:39:20 AM »
Ok! so firstly, I went out last night and shot a bunch of raw footage at some clubs ect. which I do all the time, thought i would give it a go in a way no one else has yet.

So I got home, I batched them all with RAWanizer and I get them into lightroom and they are really noisy and grainy, way way way more than what I would be getting at 4000 in h264. Am I missing something? It is making my footage look terrible.

my second question is in regards to converting the tiff sequences... why? are you not loosing quality every time you do that and adding time? why not just edit and export with the tiff sequences?

Thanks for your time.
Regards, Zac Gordon.

Iso 4K on what camera? Make them cinema dng 12 bit, see if cutting LSB helps take out some noise.. I assume you have a lot of darkness?

Hey mate,
Thanks for the reply, I am using a 5dmkIII, it handles the blacks really well normally,
there is a lot of darkness, but nothing it can't handle...

Maybe what I am getting is normal for raw... but my h264 files look great

for instance,

The h264 automatically cleans up the files a bit I believe.
