  1. If you don't like 3D there's a simple solution: don't go.
  2. The London 3D Film Festival is a celebration of independent S3D film from across the globe, an opportunity for peers to meet, and a chance for the public to engage with the very best in Stereo 3D. L3DFF is run by a group of 3D professionals keen to promote the subtle artistry of what is the most significant development in cinema since the introduction of colour. For the 2014 Festival we will screen 3 programmes showcasing 50 shorts, premiere 2 independent 3D features, and 3 3D classics. We will also have a few surprises in store. The range and breadth of what we’ve seen has really impressed us, as it will you. Submissions open late August. Website: http://L3DFF.com Mailing List: http://bit.ly/L3DFFMailingList Twitter: https://twitter.com/L3DFF We hope to see you there!
  3. This event has been moved to 19/20 November. I'll re-post. Note to any admin: please feel free to delete this this thread.
  4. We're working hard here on putting together the first London 3D Film Festival. The L3DFF is run by a group of 3D professionals keen to promote what is the most significant development in cinema since the introduction of colour. We see 3D as not just the province of Hollywood blockbusters, sport, and wildlife documentaries. Good as they may be, there really is so much more. We will screen 50 Stereo 3D shorts across 3 programmes, along with 3 classic features. We'll also have the UK premiere of the independent 3D feature Charlie Victor Romeo. Submissions for shorts opens at end of August. For updates you can join the festival mailing list at the bottom of http://L3DFF.com If you want to help out, or be a sponsor: contact.us@L3DFF.com We look forward to seeing some of you there!
  5. Hmm. I'm still left confused as to what happens when I render stuff out. I've now discovered that when imported into Premiere it displays OK. So why not when using AE? I need to go back to school for a bit... :unsure: Thanks for the input Phil. . Oh, and yes I am very tempted to buy one. The AbelCine picture profiles, the SpeedBooster combined with my stills lenses for low(er) light high speed work which really does open a whole new door, the 4K capability... Wow. (I'd rather have a F5 or F55 of course, but can't justify that financially)
  6. I remember 5DtoRGB now. Looks most promising. I'll look into that. Here's one of the files (not the best, wouldn't post that here ;) but good enough) http://we.tl/s07DXthoVr 168MB
  7. Been playing with the camera. The problem is MUCH more evident in Super Slo Mo mode, such as in the footage above. Just found the FS700 Picture Profiles at Abelcine http://blog.abelcine.com/2012/09/18/sony-fs700-scene-files-from-abelcine/ I'm using the first one and this helps to some degree, but isn't a total fix.
  8. Looking forward to that. ;) The SB makes the FS700 look even more attractive.
  9. Andre, you stated: "so the FS700 with low T-stop + speedboster is very smart under those conditions" Have you used the speedbooster? With the FS700? How well does it perform? Can you post any clips with some tech data? Cheers! ;)
  10. Thanks Phil, That all seems a bit cumbersome! And deliberating reducing the latitude by 9% a bit drastic! There must be a better way. Here's a comparison from off the monitor, and off my TV. (ps I meant AE not IE!)
  11. Hi, When I record stuff on the Sony NEXFS700 everything looks fine in the monitor, with the highlights just clipping in the histogram, but when I dump the material to my Mac and import into VLC or IE I get horrendously overexposed images. Putting the card back in the camera, it looks fine on the monitor, and looks great on my TV via the HDMI. What's going on? I reckon it's a colour space issue. But what do I need to do to fix this? If this has been covered before then please point me to the appropriate thread. Cheers! ;-)
  12. We're going with the metronome suggestion - using the one in Garageband on a Mac laptop. Big day tomorrow. You can see us in action on the live webcam here (and I really hesitate posting this here!): The Seduction - Live Stream Thanks for the input! ;)
  13. I've sent John a mail. Fingers crossed! ;) I found this page reviewing hand-held laser tachometers interesting http://makezine.com/review/tool-review-dt-2234c-digital-laser-tachometer/ But hand held isn't too useful. Do those made for motorbikes work on the same principle - a laser that makes no contact? This is not my area at all. :wacko:
  14. I was just typing much the same idea! A strip with a printed series of bars laid on the floor next to or under the track. And a strobe light whose frequency you can adjust. Dial in the correct frequency, and as you push at the correct speed the pattern appears to be static. Go too fast or slow and the pattern appears to move telling you whether to slow down or speed up. If anyone takes this idea forward into a marketable product you'll have to pay me royalties! :D This would be a great idea if you expected to be doing this again, but for the one shoot the R & D is a bit much.
