  1. I do have ShotPut but for this job I was using Silverstack. I guess it must have been the cards that I had been dealt. Thanks for your time, guys.
  2. I wish I was being that oblivious but that's not the problem either...
  3. It seems I can no longer do this and I'm really not sure why... The button is greyed out. Anyone else experiencing this problem or know how to fix it? Currently running OS X 10.10.5.
  4. Who's tried it? I can't seem to get a feed when in live mode. I can capture, just not live grade. Very odd.
  5. Thank you, Satsuki. I am yet to use the F55, hence the question! Would you recommend using an SD over the SxS for the MLUT? and can the LUT be created in Resolve or do we need to use Sony's software for the LUT to be applied as an MLUT? Thanks for your time.
  6. Hi guys and gals, My search resulted in 0 for this, so I want know; if I apply a 3D LUT directly into the F55 (via storage media) can I shoot in a non destructive way and still have access to the SLog/SGamut footage? Thanks. Luke.
  7. Exactly. And I've just got confirmation from a reseller that the Echo 15 won't be available until Jan 2015!
  8. Thanks, John. I thought it'd have to come to that. The disc drive on the top of the Echo 15 is ugly and quite unnecessary, but the fact that it fits an internal drive is handy. The Akitio is beginning to creep ahead after reading reviews - http://www.macintouch.com/reviews/thunderdock/ The Echo 15 has been on hold for a year due to the release of Thunderbolt 2 and is supposedly set to be on sale this summer (or so they say). There are a lot of angry customers surrounding this product and obviously there are no reviews as of yet. ...Akitio WINS!
  9. It looks absolutely awesome... but it's a bit pricey. I'm wanting to add a few extra ports to how I'm working as a data wrangler (I'm primarily an Editor) and this Echo 15 looks like it may be twisting my arm. However, the price tag had me searching for other solutions. I found one other dock that had USB 3.0, eSATA, Thunderbolt & FW. That was the Akito Thunderbolt Dock (with a couple less USB 3.0) and there's not much in the price difference. If I was to chose from these two the winner would be the Sonnet for sure. I thought about it and tried searching a little more... keeping in mind that I still own an Echo ExpressCard Pro, which connects via Thunderbolt. I use this mainly with an eSATA adapter. I tried to find a cheaper solution (we're all about saving money and we know it!) and I found this... the Elgato Thunderbolt Dock. It has 2 Thunderbolt ports, 3 USB 3.0, HDMI, Ethernet and it's less than half of the price. I know it doesn't have eSATA but... I have a question (at last, I got to the point!): If I connect my Echo ExpressCard into the spare Thunderbolt port of the Elgato (thus giving me eSATA connectivity) will transfer speeds be massively different compared to the Express 15? or does adding that ExpressCard screw things up a little? Overall, my suggested solution won't be a tidy little box like the Echo 15 is but it should be a cheaper alternative right? Am I being naive or should I just shut up, bite the bullet and get an Echo 15? Any help or insight would be great. Help a newbie out... Thanks guys.

  10. Is this the book, Chandler? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Color-Correction-Handbook-Professional-Techniques/dp/0321929667
  11. I'm thinking of investing. Who has used it, who's got one, and how do they perform compared to using a Red Rocket in a Mac Pro when transcoding? I'd be looking to use it with a 27" iMac (i7 3.5, 32GB RAM, 4GB GPU) and a MacBook Pro (i7 2.5, 16GB RAM, 1GB GPU). Thanks for the help guys.
  12. Thanks Kevin, I got an Echo Express and an eSATA card (you mentioned using two - how would I add another in there?) It worked great and I managed to transcode all of the footage on-set, except the last card. The shoot ran over and we had to leave the location as soon as I'd backed up. I'm on another this weekend shooting Epic Dragon and using the USB 3 card on day one. Day two and three I'll have a tower and the power of a Red Rocket-X. I've never used one of these so I'm preparing myself to be blown away!
  13. Phil, I think I've had too much of a long day to take all of that article in. I should really read it tomorrow when I'm feeling fresh...
  14. Thank you for the advice, everyone. Much appreciated! I'll write up a short report next week of how the shoot went with regards to transfer speeds etc
