All video related questions and discussion is intended for this thread. Here we discuss techniques, gear and anything else related to capturing video footage. Please don't pretend to be an expert if you don't know what you're talking about. Kindly leave your ego at the door.
Posting short films/scripts or other work you've done is encouraged.
We tend to use and recommend DSLRs/mirrorless cameras because they provide phenomenal picture quality for their price, have large sensors (ie the same size used in high-end cinema cameras and higher) and have interchangeable lenses.
In contrast, consumer camcorders normally have much smaller sensors and a fixed lens.

Previous thread >>3538206

Quick FAQS
>what’s the best camera available on a “budget”?
The blackmagic pocket cinema camera 4k, by a considerable margin
>>what’s a good beginner video camera?
Buy a used canon m50
>Can I use a zoom lens for video?
Yes
>Do I need cine lenses?
No
>Do I need 4k?
No. It will make your footage look sharper if it’s in focus, and it gives you breathing room in post. But 1080p is still absolutely fine
>Are camcorders okay?
Yes

Hai, I was looking for friendly advice for filming stage performance, like the open ones outside, where there are a lot of people around, I have a canon 60d,
I was filming a performance but I had problems with using a telezoom lense, people going in front of the camera or trying to find a good spot where I can snipe without people in the scene.
Can anybody recommend me a good lens or advice for these scenarios?

What are some good video lights you can get for a "mid-range" production under ~$300 to $400?

When I say "mid-range", I mean something relatively simple and low budget, and the shots will most likely be medium shots at their furthest (with subject lighting a must, that is).

I see that bh has a kit of the GVM 560AS lights for $200. Is this okay for the price or is there better?

Also, in terms of three and four point lighting, are there any additional LED lights one would recommend?

I bought a godox light brand new for 20€ on used market. It did the job. Also bought tripod light for outside worker wich is a good compromise price /result.
I built my own 60W led light (20€). And I am waiting for my new light stand (20€ on used market) to come.

IMO it depend on where you need to shoot (full night or daylight, small space or large space). But what >>3549881 means is that you alreafy have a shitload of lights at home and you just need to find ways of attached them in the set.

a LF sensor with fast enough readout times and still a lot of latitude is only this fall starting to be possible at a sub 20k price point, see fx9, c500II
The FF sensors used in stills cameras right now are pure jello wobble and IMO unusable for video, it will take quite a couple of years till that kind of sensor tech that dribbled down from the alexa lf, monstro, venice is available at a $2-3k point

Who said full frame was no good for filmmaking?
Rolling shutter is an independent issue that is sometimes worse in full frame cameras, sometimes not. But that's the pros and cons of a specific camera, not the format itself.
No one's going to complain that a red dragon has too large of a sensor, that's completely ridiculous.

Entry level ff tend to be worse, since they take shit ton of power and cooling to get running image suffers from obtrusive codec use, and low bit counts. They are getting there, but it's either low bit, and image problems as in sony's case, or heavy as fuck and pricey as in panasonics case.

Is renting an Alexa worth it over buying a relatively cheap camera?
>>
>>3550282
Sometimes. Probably not.
If you're fully funded and working on a professional set, then yes, of course.
If you're making a low-budget independent film with a skeleton crew, then no.
The difference in dynamic range isn't noticeable in 99% of situations. Like, noe one's going to watch the film and go "hmm, the highlight roll-off of those trees against the sky looks kind of lacking actually, how terrible".
Compare an arri with a bmp6k (for example) and, even ignoring price, the arri is heavier and harder to use. The blackmagic records raw internally and can easily fit on a gimbal.
But also, if you're contracted to do a job, clients will be a lot more impressed with an arri than pretty much anything else. And sometimes appearances are worth it.

I am planning on running studio lighting from the lowel creator dv 44 light kit (a total of about 1500 watts) and from another green screen light kit that used 500 watt bulbs. I plan on turning a room in my apartment into a movie studio. How large a fuse would I need? Would a 20 amp fuse allow me to use my lighting?

Compared to normal household appliances such as stoves and microwaves, how much power would my lighting draw? Could I use a standard 120 volt plug, or would I need to update my electric to handle a larger load?

I love it because it's versatile, fast and clean, but the focus ring is way too short and often it's too clean for what I want, that's why I have a 1/4 black pro mist basically living on it all the time
Same goes for the 50-100 btw
Get a cine modded/rehoused version for a couple of 100 more if you can to get a nicer focus ring without paying out of your ass for sigma's cine version

Has anyone switched from Premiere to DaVinci? As a student I've got a pretty sweet deal with the Creative Cloud and bringing in enough to justify the subscription but I don't know if I'm going to be able to keep it going past December.
>>
>>3552359
would you touch a poop for $20?
>>
>>3553044
I did. It's a bit weird at first. They're very similar but the differences are annoying (small things like keyboard shortcuts).
The worst thing about the switch, for me, is the way keyframes work. On premiere, you can add keyframes to literally anything so intuitively. This is not the case for davinci. You can easily add keyframes for obvious things like audio levels or picture positions, but adding key frames for things like colour correction or masks has stumped me so far.
It is very good, the render times and playback alone are pretty compelling reasons to swap. But I'd still use premiere if it was a viable option.
And that's without going into the whole spiel about the other adobe products like audition and after effects which work so seamlessly with premiere.
>>
>>3552512
Workhorse, almost everything I've shot for the past 3 years has been on this thing.
>>
>>3553044
As I shoot BRAW Da Vinci has now become my sole NLE and while it does have its quirks and there are certainly areas where it's still finding its feet as more than just grading software (not to mention there are still some significant bugs), it is fully functional and really well-made.

As the other anon said the seamless workflow between Premiere, AE and Audition is sorely missed, and I'm having to take next weekend out to teach myself Fusion because from the looks of it it doesn't function in a remotely similar way to AE.

>the image quality is pretty much universally great
>despite this, have the constant desire to buy a new camera
fuck
>>
>>3553044
Yes and no. I was in a similar situation so, I tried making the switch. DaVinci Resolve is amazing and I truly believe that it can be used as a perferct substitute for Premiere, After Effect and Audition. The Edit Page is basically a combination of all the best features of the major NLE's. However, as a result, it has a surprisingly steep learning curve. The Edit Page, Color Page, Fairlight and Fusion are very different tools. There is no underlying logic that helps you navigate the app and, unlike the Adobe apps, mastering one tool won't aid you in mastering another. I'm still pretty bad at Fusion, but that's because I never really had time to master it. See, after college, I became a freelancer and, to my surprise, I wasn't getting the solo gigs. None of that "one man band"-stuff that you see on YouTube. Instead, I usually get hired to do one job, be it camera, lights, editing, animation/graphics, VFX, sound or color. I rarely get a say in what software to use because everyone uses Adobe. Your mileage may vary but, other than the Color Page, I just don't see the point of learning Resolve in a collaborative work environment.

People making good films use the camera secondary. Very few people make good films for the sake of showing off a camera. A few try I guess.
I have a friend who's using a 6k to make a feature film. It's hardly going be advertised on its camera. It's also not going to be on youtube anytime soon.
Travel videos and blogs are basically the best you're going to get. Try some keywords in youtube and a few interesting vids might pop up but they'll be rare.

The canon 1dxiii has been announced. On top of 10bit 4:2:2 60fps 4k internal recording, it's rumoured/stated to also allow raw video recording (which would make sense given that its nikon equivalent offers this feature via external recording and the 1dxii was considered a successor to the 1dc).
So obviously panasonic fanboys gonna panasonic. But to everyone else, what do we think? It will likely retail around 4000 pounds/dollars. The recent 90d gives the impression that it should offer full frame recording without a crop (the 1dxii has a 1.3 crop for 4k shooting). Even without raw, that's incredibly great video recording capabilities and I imagine it will dominate the wedding videographer market.
But full frame is kinda overrated and it's only advantage over the bmp6k is its auto focus and battery life. For a grand and a half more, it seems like it's not ideal for the pure video shooter. I suppose it gives hope that the 5dv will have similar video specs (though criticised heavily, the 5div's video capabilities are excellent once you get past the insane storage required).

Also, the c200 isn't much more than the 1dxiii will be so I think really the camera will only appeal to people who need a great stills camera and video camera in one
>>
>>3555294
>>3555362
Digital teleconverter magnifies output images without loosing pixel density. Say, you've 2x digital teleconverter as found on em10iii, and you're shooting 4k vid on 25mm lens. If you activate it, it will turn 25mm lens into 50mm lens with very few penalties. Native sensor resolution of the sensor is higher than 4k, so camera just uses centre pixels to still output 4k. It is video thing, but must not be confused with digital zoom. That one magnifies image at the cost of resolution.

>>
>>3556844
yes, motion picture stock has an extra protective layer that needs to be stripped off during developing. Some labs do a thing called 'process paid' where buying the stock includes the price of developing and scanning, that way you only have to suck one dick to get a good deal.

Are you ever planning on adding cinema dng or another form of true lossless raw back to the pocket series of cameras?

Wow good timing. Currently we have no plans to add cinema DNG.

Hi noob question
I currently dont own any camera except an old bridge camera, no lenses either, so I am looking to buy my first real camera.
I will need to shoot video with it, nothing like proffesional tier production but it will have to be decent as I will get money from those projects. Picture taking is not that important.

I have been looking at various systems/brands and I found that sony autofocus is lightyears ahead of everything else, I tested friends a6500 and it was very good. It was so easy to use because of autofocus. Reading on internet and doing research I see that sony does 8bit video only. How big a deal is this in real world use? My use case would be mostly indoor/studio shooting
>>
>>3557830
>I found that sony autofocus is lightyears ahead of everything else
Incorrect. Canon's dual pixel autofocus is widely regarded as the best, though it depends who you ask.
>8bit video only. How big a deal is this in real world use?
Barely. It only really matters if you plan on doing heavy colour grading
>>
>>3557830
If you don't plan on shooting log or any profile that utilizes the whole dynamic range of the sensor then 8 bit video is fine, saves disk space. But for log look at cameras that offer 10 bit instead
>>
Video should be banned as a technology. It would be a better world if we just used photographs.
>>
>>3557850
So you take just a series photographs
24 of them per second

My brother recently helped some friends at an event as a Wedding Photographer. At the event, the Videographer began shilling this stabilizer to him

https://www.amazon.com/Handheld-Crane-2-Toolless-Adjustment-Weighing/dp/B075T3TQSD/ref=sr_1_3?crid=U5FUZGFWQ1UE

It seems to have made a number on him, because now he wants to buy it ASAP. I've never had a fancy Gimbal, so i don't know crap about this. Are there any other overall better Stabilizers/Gimbals in the same price range? It would help to have some alternatives because we mostly use Nikon cameras and we're about to get a BMPCC4K, but i heard the Follow Focus doesn't work with neither of them and that the whole feature set is made primarily Canon cameras, with other 2 being Panasonic and Sony.

>>3557636
If blackmagic won’t put cinema dng back on their pocket cameras. I can’t wait for them to add a lossless flavor of braw.
>>
>>3558596
why
>>
>>3558596
Again you post just as I'm checking the board. We can't implement cDNG or BRAW lossless, not because we don't want to, but we can't until certain issues are cleared up.
>>
>>3558118
I heard you might need an extra cheeseplate to gimbal mount the BMPCC4K, I haven't tried mine on anything other than a glidecam.
>>
>>3558608
I can understand cdng due to the whole license issue shit, but why not lossless braw?
Surely that would be either a processing issue (in which case the camera's just not powerful enough to do it) or else it would already be in there?
>>
>>3558614
Unfortunately I can't talk about it in more detail.
>>
>>3558618
Is it because of an issue with Red? Because,that’s what I’ve been hearing.
>>
>>3558614
It is probably not because of processing power. If processing power was the reason they could have implemented lossless braw at lesser resolution such as 2.8k.
>>
>>3558677
Ah, but then people would say that it was 'really' only a 2.8k camera and that the 4k/6k was just marketing hype
[Not saying that processing power is the actual reason, just that I can't figure what other reason it could be]
>>
>>3558674
Yes, hopefully it's resolved quickly.
>>
>>3558720

You could probably record lossless raw in 4k and 6k. I think it’s more of a storage issue, than a processing issue. Unless you wanted to spend a lot on ssd drives and/or cfast cards, most people would opt to use 2.8k.
>>
>>3554179
Hey I’m this guy. The pc came in and there were two immediate problems with it

1) the graphics card was propped up by this peice of metal bolted to the bottom of the case. This bends it slightly out of shape up, but without it being propped up the super long video card saga down under its own weight

2) something must have happened to the cpu heat sink in the mail as it’s bent out of shape. It’s a two pronged sink (google the one in the listing) and it’s like pryed out into almost a v shape. Super concerning

But i turned it on loaded my now and everything ran like a dream :) full online raw 4k footage with multiple effects layers scrubbing in real time with no buffering

Are you asking about original or 4k?
I've just finished working on an indie feature where we used it as a B cam. It's a great camera and its really easy to match it with more expensive options.

It's possible to balance on a ronin s without a plate, but that's just painful.

it just looks like natural light plus a bit, so i dont really get why youd ask about the light
>>

What did you use it next to? Things that I heard from people that use them is opposite. Even raw has weird tint to it. Offcourse all b cameras have these drawbacks. Sony is even worse, but I hear good things about new Panasonic.

anons- what's the best way to get past feeling like a useless lazy cunt when scripting/storyboarding? I feel like some kind of a project whore, seeking solace in one of the ten unfinished short (10-20min) serial narratives I have, never just focusing on completing one of them. I find myself trying write in details to the point of inanity, I know not how to abandon my insecurities of doing a video "wrong" due to lack of historical accuracy/wardrobe planning/location availability. (Thus the constant editing and rewriting of each short, hopefully until scheduling and resources can align). Is this prudent behavior or just another vain attempt to try and cling to the illusion of power? I need to get out of this rut and produce the diddily ding dong dang content
>>
>>3560017
I have a strong feeling that you should completely give up on doing movies. You sound like you are the least appropriate person to do this profession. I'd recommend to firstly stop every activity and then make a slow and careful thinking about youeself and what you can and want. I guarantee that you will be happier with something else, and it is just the question how much time you waste, but you actually know that you will end up with another profession anyways, so why later than sooner?

Tl;dr: find something you have fun and joy with.
>>
>>3560017
I don't mean to sound harsh. But from the way you write you sound very arrogant and very pretentious. I'd fathom that the reason you haven't made anything is because the second you actually materialise any of your ideas, they become open to criticism and you'd have to face that you're not as perfect as you'd like to believe. Hence why you spend so long obsessing over details and spread yourself so thin.
If you want to make something, you have to go out and make something. Sounds obvious, but most people fail this step. I'd recommend focusing on something that dosen't require elaborate costumes/locations so that you can focus on just telling an interesting story.
Alternatively, there are many professions in the industry and director/writer might not be for you. Have you ever thought about being a production designer? Or a set decorator? Or a storyboard artist? You might be more content focusing your efforts on someone else's ideas. It will alleviate your insecurities of failing (since you'll have a 'boss' who ultimately takes responsibility) and you can handle multiple projects.

>>
>>3561478
Steadicam and gimbals give you a completely different result. Learn to think about your needs when you look for a new equipment purchases. Also as other anons said - if you don't have a good tripod yet, make it a priority first.
>>
>>3561478
Heavier cameras tend to work better on a steadycam than on a gimbal. Gimbals use power to run, steadycams use your muscles to work.

What shutter speed do i want for 60p video? still 180 degrees?
>>
>>3563427
depends
180-360 for more natural movement in real time
under 180 for cleaner more "scientific" looking slomos with sharp details
>>
>>3563570
90 would be good or can i go even lower?

>>3563613
depends on how much light you have
I think for realtime anything faster than 180 looks like shit but you do you and for sharp slomo anything fast can be great as I said

In America if you try to profit off what you are making with out consent you can get sued. Burring faces makes it much harder for someone who is trying to sue you for using footage of them without permission to prove it was them.

In America you can also get sued if you film from a public area into a private area using a creepshot lens, I mean a high powered zoom used by people who photograph birds and or Stacy’s beaver

I read "Hollywood Lighting from the Silent Era to Film Noir" a couple of years ago and it was pretty good.
not sure if it's 100% what you want because even though there's descriptions and examples of lighting systems and setups it's not a guide or not like a very technical handbook but more about the history and approaches that developed along with the personalities in that very fast developing period. also a bit cheesy and nostalgic at times but nontheless a good read.
>>
>>3567240
I can't answer your question, but recreating the look from that era is very straight-forward. They just used very harsh, bright lights in a typical 2 or 3 point lighting system.
The cameras used are pretty easy to find out about. It was before the invention of super 35, so they were all just full-frame on panavisions or whatever.
There was a really low-budget film made in that style recently actually. I can't remember its name, but it was like a romantic drama and looked stunning. It might have had an element of the occult too. The director really struggled with getting her crew to actually believe in her vision.
>>
>>3567469
I know of that one, it's mainly based on Alton's Painting with Light. As I remember he got a lot of heat from studios for revealing lighting secrets. Having trouble finding lens information. A lot of soft focus lenses were used, an even that interchangeably, soft for women, sharp for men. I'm having hard time finding anything on precise models of them.

It's not that simple. Film was extremely sensitive to different exposures, so they had to be very careful with exposures. No zoom shots, all was done on trolleys, or fixed rigs. And there's curious amount of fuckups present. Touch of Evil, with it's iconic opening scene has some absolutely atrocious interior lighting, with character shadows ending up on ceilings on few occasions.

Hi. Been around for a while. I want to get into the film industrie. I am based in France and I wish to go around in europe. My ultimate goal is to find a way to be a film director (I know that many people want that).
I have got a engineer degree in electronic/computer science and it-s borinf af. Made couple of shorts but nothing amazing.
Was thinking as my job contract is finishing next june that I could go for it.
First I would like to be take a beginner job so I could see how the industry works.

What are the jobs to be into, where will I learn a maximum of things, what people do in cinema that allows them to win some money doing movie stuff? Is video clip a reliable market? What do you do anon?

Depends on your direction, if you're more of a visually creative type or the narrative type who's more focused on storytelling. Nowadays everyone wants to work visually and go into videoclips and advertising, so I think that direction is more saturated than trying to work through storytelling. Of course that's also more complex as you have to learn story structure and screenwriting. Generally in Europe directors are also screenwriters, because noone wants to write for someone else for some reason.
So tl;dr lots of people do videoclips and you probably won't impress anyone with that, but few people can actually write a screenplay, so that'll probably get you further.

It can't cost more than like 20 bucks to order one off amazon. And they aren't big so you don't need a particularly large green screen. Could even use a black screen and it would be just as effective as long as you light it properly.

Production levels are way smaller in Europe, so I would say going to the film school is an easier route than in US or Canada. Film school will give you something to work on for a portfolio, but more importantly it will give you lots of connections. Also try to find a local Facebook group where people in the industry look for a crew to hire. Apply as a PA and work from there, real budget productions are way different from a no to small budget, so that experience will help you a lot. I recently finished working as a camera trainee on a feature and learned more that I learned working for 8 years in a music video business.

Hahaha sweet summer child, in Europe production companies don't invest in production, they get public grant money to pay for it. The only private investment in films comes from TV networks (always coupled to public subsidies ofc) and maybe one of the extremely few commercial production companies (also coupled to subsidies). There's absolutely zero private investment in short films because they don't make money.

>>3569276

It sure is different in America. In America production companies fund the film and rape the maker of all profits that the film makes.

The only thing that gets grants is documentaries because their is not a lot of profit in most documentaries.

And, very short films, are usually self-produced in America. Unless it’s porn, they because their is alway profit in that. Incels or asspies or trannies or furries will buy it all up.

Yes, there's a big difference between how production works in America and in Europe. However both system are equally shit in their own way, don't fall for the "grass is greener on the other side" meme.

In Europe only extremely few people can work consistently in films and they need "day jobs" like working on shitty tv content or commercial video, and that's the best case scenario. The amount of film productions is clearly limited by the amount of public subsidies.
In America if you're good you can get work consistently and there's a lot of money being put into production, however you have to be a total sellout and get raped by kike producers.

In america you have to make commercial shit according to what idiot producers think will make money.
In europe you have to make pretentious pseudo-artsy shit that pleases the idiot apparatchik in charge of giving out the subsidies. The other day I saw an advert for a """""""""""""""""""swiss""""""""""""""""""" film called "Al-Shafaq" directed by Esen Işık and starring Kida Khodr Ramadan, Beren Tuna, Ismail Can Metin, Ahmed Kour Abdo, Serkan Ercan and many other very swiss names. Language, according to IMDB: Turkish | German | Swiss German | Arabic | Kurdish. Now if that doesn't promote SWISS culture I don't know what does!

Possible, but very limited in its possibilities and potential.
I made my first two shorts that way, well I put a bit of money in it myself for the bare necessities, but like only a tiny fraction of what a normal production would have cost. The shorts went nowhere, but they did help me as a portfolio to promote myself afterwards, so that's something I guess.

By any chance are you in the UK/ROI? Cause they don't really count as Europe.
The alternative I could see leading to this argument is you and the other guy having different definitions of "pretentious pseudo-artsy".
Like some people would say that a film like Loveless was that just because it's so different to Hollywood, while others would say it definitely wasn't since it's a very genuine realist story that doesn't ever linger more than it needs to. So I wonder if you're really arguing with each other or if this is just a communication issue.
>>
>>3570472
not UK
in my country at least you can get state funding for anything that isn't straight up mainstream action romcom etc trash that's created to shill products covertly (though there is private funding for that). so basically with the state fund, yes you can make more artistically inclined films, but you can just as easily make more straight 'drama' stuff.
I don't consider Loveless to be pretentious and would probably ascribe it to the aforementioned straight 'drama' category

Does anyone have expirience with smallrig products?

Just got my BMPCC4k and I'm just trying to think out some ways of binding it to my Steadicam Merlin II. I'm still really comfortable with this stabalizer and it can still take much more weight.

It uses special (very thin headed) tripod screws to mount the camera on the opposite side of (pictured) dovetail plate. The issue is that with only one point of contact the camera shifts slightly about the tripod screw (unbalancing the steadicam constantly). I own multiple of these screws as well as the locating pins that came with the device.

I'm thinking this is a good opportunity for a smallrig cage, but the cage itself only has one 1/4-20 screw hole on the bottom. What kind of solutions do people do for this? I was looking at cheeseplates but i'm not sure if that's their purpose, and I might end up with different spacing of the holes. The other option is to hold out a few months till I can afford my metabones and just try to screw into that as well.

TLDR; how do y'all make sure your camera doesn't shimmy around when you're on a stabalizer

I'm helping my friend record a music video set in a mall. Are there any legal problems with that, if people or brand names are in the background and the video is posted on youtube with ads? Or has anyone had problems recording in public places?
>>
>>3570635
Mall's count as private property so, assuming you're in the uk or america, it's illegal to do-so without permission.
You'll probably be fine if you do it discreetly but they might ask you to leave and theoretically ban you from the premises.
>>
>>3569729
I'm sorry, what would this have to do with? I feel like a dipshit for not knowing this.
>>
>>3570635
The important thing with "legal problems" isn't if someone is going to come arrest you at the mall, but whether in 5 years your friend gets noticed and his cool music video gets taken down for any one of a million reasons. Here are some issues off the top of my head based on the words you said.

>helping my friend
is his ass gonna be on the line? or yours? are you the one filming? you should clearly define who's doing what for who, who gets the final product and who benefits from it.

>record a music video set in a mall
Malls and office buildings are the number one place you're going to get kicked out of by staff and possibly get banned depending on how fed up they are with people filming there.

>Are there any legal problems with that
Yes, depending on which country you're in you may or may not be able to video people in the mall without all of their permission. Especially if it's for commercial product which it sounds like youre doing. Some regions even require you have the release for the properties you used on a commercial product.


>if people or brand names are in the background
Yes, for exactly the reason you said, any brand logos featured in the video could have the video taken down because they dont want it to be used by just anyone.

and the video is posted on youtube with ads?
It's important to remember how hard it is to get a video monitized these days, just having logos and stores could get it taken off. Even then you have to think about the long term concequences of a video of theirs being DMCAd a year from now

Or has anyone had problems recording in public places?
You can get away with a lot in public if you're friendly and you stay out of peoples way, it's what you do with the footage that can get you in trouble.

How hard is making a movie really? I have ADHD and have been telling my self I would for years so haven't attempted but for the people who have hard is it. Even something low budget with a few actors and a camera.
>>
>>3570863
Find friend to film, write a small scenario, try to make it, post product the thing and show us the result.
You will find if it's hard or not :)
>>
>>3570863
I've been making a feature film for the last few months, using the same philosophy for making a short film but just longer.
It's exponentially harder just because there's no "down-time". It's non-stop and I'm finding myself editing like a mad man while simultaneously having to cast new actors for the next scene and sort locations.
Making a short film is relatively straight forward as long as you plan it out properly. It's an area where experience really helps a lot more than reading a guide
>>
>>3570997
>what is pre-production?
such an amateur mistake ..
>>
>>3571005
Doing pre-production separately in advance would've increased the production time by double roughly, and would've meant counting on people to be reliable.
You book an actor for a low wage 4 months in advance? Good chance they drop out when something better-paid comes along or when they realise they fucked up their schedules or twist their ankle or some other bullshit.
You book an actor 2 weeks in advance? They're just glad to have a job for a period they thought they wouldn't.
Same applies to getting locations.

Doing things that far in advance costs more money and requires more organisation - tracking down emails from months ago to find the rep you talked with, finding someone who totally has an apartment you can film in in 6 months. Etc etc.
It's not practical unless you're working in a larger team than a one-man band.

I have been recording 24fps videos at 60fps in obs. Is there any benefit to this? Like would i more likely be able to pause and take still frames from it better than if I was recording it at 24fps?
>>
>>3571369
No, actually the opposite. I'm assuming obs is an external recorder.
Because 24 doesn't divide exactly into 60, it's highly likely that every 3rd frame is a blend of the two frames either side (60/24=2.5).
Which means every 3rd frame will be a blurry mess, while the previous two frames will just be the same single frame that you'd get from recording 24p.
What makes it worse than just recording is that if you were to then export your 60p video to 24p, your editor would have to interpret those blurry frames since it doesn't know that they are entirely pointless and can just be dropped. This process will therefore make all of your frames slightly blurrier than if you had just recorded at 24p in the first place.
It's like upscaling a 2k image to 4k and then back down to 2k.

Nb. I have never done this myself, this is just based on what I know from how the tech I use works. inb4 someone tells me this is inaccurate

Need a cam with completely custom frame rate to synch to pc crt monitor. From 60 to around 180. For example it must go exactly 61fps, 71fps, 95fps. Ideally it'd be even 61.1fps, but I know that does not exist.

Panasonic GHs can do funky fps recording like 61fps etc.

this, gh5 and gh5s can do syncro shutter mode or whatever it's called where you can nail your shutter down to .1 fps increments

dont these usually go on a cage? the p4k cage doesnt move at all unless you mount it wrong

>>3571437
doesnt the p4k off fps mode do this
>>
>>3572315
Plus blackmagic is always updating the firmware so if enough people want to shoot video at 61.1 fps they’ll add a feature update to let them do that.

Why would somebody even want to do that?

Couldn’t you shoot at 24 fps and change your frame rate in post?

What are the benefits of shooting at odd frame rates?
>>
>>3572360
Crt monitors have fixed refresh rate that cause flickering when filmed. Actual refresh rate depends on game, software and resolutions used. Point it that you must shoot at exact refresh rate used to get footage out of it.

GH5 is ok, but GH5s will be even better since it's using aa filter on sensor. Curvature of monitor will cause moire even with it.

I'm not ready for a a consumer dilc to have 8k video. And the idea of putting 8k onto a mft sensor seems fucking retarded cause the pixels will be tiny. The gh5 already has shitty noise in its shadows, anything worse would be unusable.

Bmp doesn't shoot prores. Do you mean raw?
Blackmagic has better quality codecs than any consumer brands at that price range.
It's also built for video as opposed to just being able to do a good job on video.
But there are strengths and weaknesses. So an x-t3 is almost definitely better for run&gunning or vlogging. Honestly, if you want the nitty gritty, watch some reviews of the cameras.

yes it does shoot prores
>>
>>3572899
Sorry, I read that in my head as prores raw. Blackmagic doesn't shoot prores raw.
I'm tired, I apologise.

The bmp4k only shoots raw or prores. So if you don't care about prores recording, I guess I need to ask what you mean by that?
If you mean you won't be shooting prores, then you're only other option is to shoot raw with that camera.
If you mean that you don't care about prores' advantages over fuji's codecs, then, in short, you don't care about video quality. There's not really a simpler way to put it then that. If you don't care about recording better quality video, then a camera designed to shoot great video won't have many advantages. It still has the other things like shutter angles, ergonomics, resolution, framerates etc
But the primary reason you'd want a blackmagic is for its image quality.
