  1. The clip for the song has been at last officially release so I am reposting the final result. I used the neatvideo denoiser plugin in most of the scenes to great results. Slight color grading with magic bullet but nothing major, colors were vibrant enough to begin with http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1QV4g4Na3Yo PS. try to watch in 1080p. it makes a difference, as even 720p is heavily compressed
  2. I have a Letus 1st generation 35mm adapter. I removed the flip image mirroring system to make it more compact. Now I have access directly to the grounding glass but there is lot of vignetting and stuff so I will use an achromat. The question is, should I use a 72mm achromat and attach it to the Canon HF10 (37mm) with step up rings, or use a 52mm achromat and use step up rings on both sides? What will give the best results?
  3. I have applied some magic bullet filters but nothing major, colors were more or less as vivid as this. I was really happy with the telecine done by Uppsala Bildteknik.
  4. I recently shot a super8 film for the music track of a local artist. Concept was of a pagan-forest type little story so we shot in the woods over a cold January weekend. The clip was shot with a Nizo S56 using 100D film. The footage was not the best as we run out of time (it was raining/snowing and we had to interrupt shooting) and also the old Nizo was getting stuck (due to cold weather?). It turned out that it was filming at the odd frame rate of 14.5 (was hard to do the lip sync) Anyway, heres the almost finished clip password: snowdraft Let me know what you think
  5. Has anyone tried using steadicam with Super8. There are some nice options like this some of which are relatively cheap for someone to experiment with. has anyone tried any similar solutions for stabilized shooting?
  6. Well, it is not, I was running Windows with bootcamp and I loaded the script in Virtualdub as usual
  7. I'd say that the scripts takes around 3-4fps to process on an iMac, which means roughly 15 minutes per roll. I have only tried this script with 8mm material but I am planning to do some experimenting with random footage that I get from youtube. its surprising how much better some clips can be
  8. coming back to this old thread with some short film that has been "restored" with the avisynth script. pretty good results ORIGINAL RESTORED
  9. the Putte script for avisynth is truly amazing! You can do a lot of fine tuning depending on the material you have to work on each time but even with the ready-made script the results are stunning. I am sure better results can be achieved if there is time to test different settings of the script. its amazing how much information is revived! this one looks less grainy when it is actually playing, but still could be denoised a bit with some tweaking.
  10. I dont think that necessarily there has to be movement. I very much like the effect and feeling that the static shooting of those locations gives.
  11. it looks very good. nice selection of images. i could easily imagine that as the intro/start titles for some movie
  12. i am not really talking about the colors when comparing those two labs. i am satisfied with the results of the first when it come to colors, and they can be slightly corrected in final cut afterwards as well. the very weird thing though is the abrupt fading, why you think this might have happened? thanks
  13. I got my first test roll few days back processed and transferred to miniDV by bluecinetech in london. I took the film for telecine to a local 'lab' which would do it for a really cheap rate just to check out if the quality was passable. https://download.yousendit.com/dVlvUGhld0FZY1NGa1E9PQ On that link you will find the same clips of work of both labs. 1 is bluecinetech and 2 the local guy. As you can see 1 is much sharper and looks better in general. 2 has washed out colors and most importantly at very bright scenes in the middle of the frame the colors are 'burned' because of the lamp which looks very poor (see 1'40"). I think that this guy might as well just capture from a wall projection. In case that helps understanding his technique the very first 1-2 seconds (before the butterfly scene) at the first clip are from the telecine of 2nd lab that got into the first clip by mistake. However 2 feels sometimes smoother. For example check the fade in/out test at 1'05". On number 2 is very smooth when on 1 looks abrupt. Why you think this might have happened? I would also like your opinions on the processing which for me looks ok, not many stains, dust, etc. what do you think?
  14. thanks for the quick reply. i guess that yes, a cheaper processing might mean 'dirtier' results when it comes to the physical form of the film. if i understood well though, a cheaper processing cannot really affect drastically the actual quality of the material such as sharpness, colors, etc, right?
  15. One last question. How different can processing come out in different labs. Judging from the results of telecine of my first S8 roll from two different labs, it makes a big difference where you do it, but do you think that also processing can be different in each lab?
  16. hmm, can you shed some light on how to build or where to buy one?sounds interesting PS.my girlfriend asks if you are polish
  17. i guess this means that with some macgyver thinking someone can create some sort of adapter that would make the 8mm film fit in the 16mm machine in a satisfactory way. id have to look into it.
  18. i was under the impression that developing mainly involves putting the film into chemicals. does it have to go through some machine when developed? (im not refering to telecine which obviously needs dedicated machine)
  19. how different is super8 than 16mm or 35mm and other types of film. Why does it require a dedicated lab to process why it can be done by labs that do other films as well? Here in athens its impossible to develop it without sending it abroad and i'm trying to figure if it is really that hard to develop it. From what my amateur eyes see there is ektachrome 64T film for 16mm cameras for example, isnt it processed in similar way like super8 equivalent? thanks
  20. Telecine is done by bluecinetech in London. If the minidv tape was to be played only on specific machines they would mention i guess as they know im a beginner. another question. does the minidv to computer transfer happen realtime or it can be transferred faster than 1x
  21. I am considering of getting the cheapest miniDV that I can find in order to be able to transfer the telecined material and I am wondering if the camera affects the quality of the transferred movie in the end? Does it make any difference if you are using a 100$ or 1000$ model of miniDV camera when capturing to computer?
  22. Ok, from the info I found, ektachrome 64T is tungsten so for daylight I need the built in orange filter. They guy who sold me the camera told me to not use it, and confused me a bit
  23. I am using the standard ektachrome 64T. When I shoot outside I keep it at lightbulb position and for indoors I need a filter, right?
  24. I have a nizo s56 and the seller told me that for outdoors i should set the switch in the 'lightbulb' position and use a blue filter for indoors. is this information correct? thanks
