I saw a brief demo of what the new CS5.5 suite could do at NAB and was very impressed. I am still flirting with Premiere, what I saw at NAB could turn me from Final Cut Pro…or at the least make me use it as an additional tool. With Final Cut X due out in […]
Good news…a very clever German fella by the name of Jorgen Escher has in the space of just 48 written a final cut plug in that deals with the horrible micro moire pattern that you an see in hair and other fine patterned objects. Martin Beek wrote to me a few days about the problem […]
Crumplepop have put up this excellent little tutorial which shown you how to get the equivalent of 1000fps by using Apple’s Motion and the Optical Flow in it. They were inspired by Oton Bačar’s superb BMX videos which he used the plug in TWIXTOR on, you can see those at the bottom of this post. […]
I am down in Key West doing some filming for Kessler Crane, whilst here I am of course doing lots of timelapses. Last night was something called “Independence Day”? No idea what that is about, anyway they had fireworks so I shot a timelapse of it using my 1DmkiV and 14mm Canon F2.8L lens. My […]
I never thought I would say this but i am learning how to cut in Premiere. I aways dismissed it as an amateur tool. Much preferring my Final Cut Pro. All because this CS5 is damn amazing. You do need a powerful MAC with the right graphics cards. My new i7 17″MBP works great with […]
Since I uploaded my recent films shot on the Canon 5DmkII in 2.35:1 on vimeo without borders I have been asked how to do it. So here as promised is the simple tutorial with thanks to Kevin Shahinian.
Thanks to Luke Brooks for this short tutorial. Please play full screen to see clearly what he is doing. His tutorial is for 50p but the same applies to 60p.
Thanks very much to Brian Boyko for this tutorial.
Exactly what is says on the tin…you want overcrank quality slow motion with a camera that doesn’t have it but shoots 50p or 60p? Then this is how you do it with a Mac. One word of warning. This is a one way process so if you want to keep the 50p/60p version make a […]
Whilst in Delhi I shot two long interviews. The 5d could only record 12 minute chunks before you had to stop and start so I did them in takes. I recorded sound on the zoom H4n. I have converted all the rushes to Pro Res and will be giving the hard drive to Greenpeace at […]
Grading “Return to Dungeness” with Magic Bullet Looks from Philip Bloom on Vimeo. Made for RGTV. Here is a look at the kind of things I did using Red Giant Software’s Magic Bullet Looks whilst grading my short film “Return to Dungeness” I hope it is informative, it runs at 27 minutes. It barely scratches […]
