First fully RAW client video now Live 5DMark3 and 6D
« on: August 28, 2013, 09:41:00 PM »
Just went live with my biggest RAW project yet and first paid gig to be shot nearly entirely RAW. The first day of shooting we had the 6D shooting normal n264 but after I looked at the footage we went RAW for the remaining 3 days of shooting. In the web version there are 3 h264 shots and the rest RAW while the version that will start airing soon is 100% RAW. We shot on the 5Dmk3 at 1920 and the 6D at 1728 and upconverted to 1920. All 5D footage was handled exclusively by RAWmagic and Resolve before editing in ProRes444 and the 6D footage was processed through LR and Son of a Batch. Only had a couple hiccups during shooting and it had to do with filling up cards (Interviews in RAW!). My next investment is the VAF aliasing filter for the 6D as the moire is starting to bug me compared to the 5D footage.

This just goes to show that RAW can be successfully used for paid gigs and has a phenomenal look for broadcast. Am now leaning toward shooting an upcoming FEATURE entirely in RAW on the 5DmkIII.  :o

Really impressive. This is giving me some more confidence to shoot this short film I'm planning in RAW. Did you experience any sort of hiccups during your shooting or did it all go relatively smoothly?

Really the only issues I had were user error. As I was shooting a ton of footage over 4 days (10 hours of content) I ran into space issues a couple times. Once that meant I forgot to clear the card before shooting and had to manually delete each file from the previous shoot. Another it meant I had to put down the 5Dmk3 as it was full and just shoot with the 6D. And I was on the crappy Komputerbay 128gb so it wasn't the most reliable but it never was a problem. The only thing I would have done different is shooting on the Zeiss primes more as the 24-105L can give an almost too crisp look. It works well with the IS for the driving shots and the zoom is obviously convenient but the Zeiss has such a creamier rich look. There is always next time.
And teryoon I highly recommend going RAW especially if it's just a short. Make sure you have the drive space for the processing but aside from that and the extra work involved it's totally worth it. I'm shooting the teaser for my indie feature next month and am planning on going all RAW as a test. If the data and syncing scares me off I may shoot on a combo of the C100 and the 5DmkIII RAW.

That's actually great to hear. I still have around 2 months of planning before the actual shoot so I've just been testing workflows and CF cards and what not, making everything is stable and that I can figure out solutions to any problems I might have. But this definitely gives me more confidence going into shooting, thanks!
