  1. David's right. Also, you can bypass this restriction by becoming a Sustaining Member.
  2. Great discussion, although not about David's cinematography.
  3. It looks to me like every shot in this trailer might have been captured with the same focal length lens. From IMDB: Red Epic Dragon, Zeiss Master Prime Lenses /Red Epic-W Helium 8K S35, Zeiss Master Prime Lenses
  4. General formula for bi-aspheric singlet lens design free of spherical aberration RAFAEL G. GONZÁLEZ-ACUÑA & HÉCTOR A. CHAPARRO-ROMO In layman's terms: https://gizmodo.com/a-mexican-physicist-solved-a-2-000-year-old-problem-tha-1837031984 The Optical Society - https://www.osapublishing.org/ao/abstract.cfm?uri=ao-57-31-9341 In this paper, we present a rigorous analytical solution for the bi-aspheric singlet lens design problem. The input of the general formula presented here is the first surface of the singlet lens; this surface must be continuous and such that the rays inside the lens do not cross each other. The output is the correcting second surface of the singlet; the second surface is such that the singlet is free of spherical aberration. ao-57-31-9341.pdf
  5. 12x12 in a room only 9 feet high.
  6. Yep, sorry. Looks like that's a admin-only option. I just added a "Remove Format" button. Hope that helps. It's the Tx to the right of the S button.
  7. Click the "Source" button in the Reply form. It's on the left edge of the Formatting Bar (Bold, Italics, etc.)
  8. The Sustaining Membership upgrade option is back! https://cinematography.com/index.php?/topic/61341-sustaining-membership-upgrade/
  9. Once you're logged in on your phone, click the three horizontal bars to the right above the Cinematography.com logo. Then click Activity / Unread Content. (Save that as home-screen shortcut on your phone?) Or have you tried that, Phil?
  10. Auto-double-spacing seems to be common practice in text editors these days like WordPress. I don't mind it. If you use Shift-Return at the end of a line you can bypass it.
  11. Hi, Adam, Sustaining members have 24 hours to go back and edit a post. Basic members have a few minutes. If you need to make a correction, best practice is to add a reply to your post with the updated information.
  12. "New Topics" list is back on the home page, Macks. Speaking of "Filmvorführerforum", Simon, the old forum database could not deal with foreign character encoding. Any attempt at using an umlaut, accent, Latin letters, etc wouldn't work. The new software is UTF-8 and can deal with that stuff. It is a fair amount of work keeping the forums running, but it's not too bad. It's the stress of making sure it's always available that has given me gray hairs. To me those are two different things. Fortunately the more mature the software gets, the easier it is to maintain once the kinks are worked out. Rarely do I get the opportunity to go off-grid for more than a day or two though. I'll see what I can do about the layout, Tyler and Phil. I'll be making adjustments this week to try different things.
  13. Ha! You'll get used to it. I agree this default layout is a bit, err, different. I liked the old design too, which is why I waited three years to finally update the software to the new version. On the upside... It's way more secure and a lot faster. It works better on mobile devices, and has many new features that make it easier to use after a little practice.
