Like I said I enjoy the ride of new technology, and I do not blame anyone else for not wanting to jump on board. But don't be critical of those who do. It's our money, sweat, and tears. I find it fun even if it fails.
Yes I could, I do have Motion., but I perfer the plugin approach to keep my workflow using a single editor/compositing program as much as possible. Working on a large FCP project and I don't like taking the VFX shots back and forth.
Using FCPX my tracking options are to use the Mocha powered "Plugins" TrackX and SliceX then by plug-in developer CoreMelt. I don't want to jump to an outside app in the middle of my FCPX workflow. A plugin keeps my workflow simple.
I have a GH4 on order and plan on jumping into the 4k workflow as soon as I get it. Maybe I need to document it on you tube. It will be a learning experience and will require a lot more resources to be spent using it. I find it exciting, but I under…
I recieved my new Rode Videomic Pro. Now I am waiting for my serial number for Pluraleyes. They have to confirm my purchase, so hopefully it will not take too long.
Here it is on my Canon 60D.
The video footage was shot a long time ago, with minimal set pieces, and lots of green screen.
Then the project lost its funding and all the footage was sitting on a drive somewhere.
Fortunately they found some creative financing and Dvd deal.
I think it is great news, and it could bring us fans some new content. Of course it could go bad, very bad. It's a risk but I would like to think the new movies could be better than the last 3, (1,2,3). Pray they don't go introducing cute characters…
I had only recently purchased Sony Vegas Pro 11, and now with the Hit Film 2 connection with 12, I guess I have to upgrade again. Upgrades are kicking my wallet this year. Already upgraded PFHOE Pro to PFMatchit this month.
I really don't want to buy an expensive belt battery system, because you can't take the existing battery out and swap it.
This is my personal dislike. Never enjoyed wearing my battery packs.
I will wait for version 2 of the camera to buy, maybe rent…
There is agood article about the workflow, and the raw files available to download.
I am downloading the video files now. Going to use Davinci Resolve lite the free version!
Really I would love to get this camera but the non-removeable battery is an…
I bought PFHoe Pro 2.2 for 199, but I really wanted the PFMatchit.
The Matchit price was 700 which was too steep for my first migration into 3D matchmoving.
Now I can upgrade to it for 100 bucks which is not a bad deal at all.
Basically I will have …
That one is the Fancier Heavy duty 75 mm tripod with a fluid head.
It is quite heavy, but I place it on a dolly if I need to move it.
I don't use all the gear at once usally, it depends on the shot, or series of shots.
The audio gear, juicedlink, …
I just updated the main photo at the first post to reflect other items I have acquired.
Using Juicedlink, a Follow focus, added an external monitor, also using various external mics.
In this shot I have my rail system attached to a quick mount so …
I purchased the matte box and the focus system on Ebay.
Since I shoot with multiple Canons, they range from T1i, T2i, & T3i.
Looking to get a Canon 5D Mark II, hoping the price will drop with the Mark III being released soon.
I need to make a hologram effect and have not been able to make anything that looked good yet.
So I was considering just buying the Holomatrix plugin over at Red Giant.
If anyone has an idea how to get the scan lines added and quality of this plugin…
I find it hard to be so critical of others peoples work, especially since they spent time developing these visual works. The work is good, and sure there are flaws, I have never seen anyone make anything that did not have flaws.
He without flaws, th…
