  1. Samecine made ready to shoot cases for various film cameras. The camera basically floated between the bottom foam and the foam in the lid, the foam was cut to the shape of the camera, so that it offered the best support and held it in position. There were compartments in the remaining space for accessories, batteries and magazines. The foam was high density stuff, so it had a long life,
  2. I'd be surprised if sound people would call themselves cinematographers, sound designer and variations of that seems to be the current trend in the post production audio department. You do get the term used in CGI or computer animation, where they use computer generated lighting.
  3. You could test using phase cancellation of the camera noise. It might work for limited use on some types of shots.
  4. The first build of V2023.1 beta is now available for download. https://forum.lwks.com/threads/new-lightworks-beta-version-2023-1-revision-138007-now-available-on-windows-linux-and-mac.249065/ HDR Workflows are added, with exporting sequences as an SDR or HDR deliverable (Lightworks Pro Only) to supported codecs.The OpenEXR format has been added enabling the highest quality floating point interoperability. Export sequences as an SDR or HDR deliverable (Lightworks Pro Only) to supported codecs. The OpenEXR format has been added, enabling the highest quality floating point interoperability. Also: The ability to draw/create effect masks. Create and Define Custom Layout Templates (Fixed Layout Only). This is to make the Fixed layout easier to navigate for first time users, along with making it more useful and tailored for seasoned Lightworks professionals. Added functionality icons, improving the layouts and making functionality more discoverable. Effects and Transitions Improvements (Fixed Layout Only). The new layouts allow for much better discovery of features without having to move out of the existing tab. Note, this new ‘Tiles’ option is not currently available in Flexible layout but should be ready very soon. OpenEXR media Support Note: Only OpenEXR files typically used for video post production are supported by Lightworks. Others such as those including ‘z’ information, ‘Deep’ images or ‘Stereoscopic’ images are not supported.
  5. My late 1970s Ronford F4 Samcine case has the telex and cables details. The basic design concept continues due to former Samcine Case employees starting their own companies.
  6. You may find that you can only use the music for a limited time. I know of one short that could only use the music for a year or two, which reduced the screening life of the film. Having the music composed for the film isn't unusual with shorts. There are new or even experienced composers who want the experience of film work.
  7. I suspect there will be more in the series. Some new ones: The Digital Bolex https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RQ9JKCpbC9M The IKononoskope A Cam https://youtu.be/u5N5zXJT0pU
  8. The Dalsa is the top one in the first post: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5b9d18rdrY
  9. Regarding the F900, the video centres around its use with Panavision lenses on the Star Wars film. BTW I've used the later Panavision F900 that they rented out, it's a heavy camera with its customized body and Panavision zoom.
  10. I thought that abandoned was the wrong title for the series, having seen one or two cameras flagged as future videos. I've used the F900 and it was around for many years, although the Penelope Delta did fall into the category. Perhaps they also mean abandoned in the sense of no longer used or abandoned by the industry and/or the manufacturer.

  11. This appears to be a series of videos on abandoned cameras, in this case the Dalsa 4K: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I5b9d18rdrY The F900: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugt4Dl9nGo4 The Arri D21 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Hd87IYYCw8 The Aaton Penelope Delta: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SXTzw6sOUw The AJA Cion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNLmX3bZZ5I
  12. Lightworks version V2022.3 is now released. Audio has received most of the attention in this release. https://forum.lwks.com/threads/new-lightworks-release-version-2022-3-revision-136244-now-available-on-windows-linux-and-mac.248819/ Apart from integration with the IOGates REACT product ( https://site.iogates.com/features/ ) for securely sharing, receiving & reviewing video content in the cloud. V2022.3 includes 200 Free tracks from epidemic sound, Quick FX templates for dialogue and music, improved audio plugin support and new audio controls. Note that a Create or Pro license will be required for some features. More details here: https://lwks.com/lightworks-22-3-sounds-great-biggest-audio-update-ever/ There are also new video tutorials on using these audio features.
  13. The third V2022.3 beta build has been released. https://forum.lwks.com/threads/new-lightworks-beta-version-2022-3-revision-135829-now-available-on-windows-linux-and-mac.248679/#post-259242 This build consists mostly of fixes, but has added abbreviated track names to the VFX/AUDIO tabs and 1.001 factor frame rates for custom format creation. Since these current betas are coming out roughly once a week with only a couple of minor additions with each build, plus the fixes, I will hold off announcing each beta release. The details can found in the fixes and features on the public beta download page found via the above link
  14. The second V2022.3 beta build has been released. https://forum.lwks.com/threads/new-lightworks-beta-version-2022-3-revision-135680-now-available-on-windows-linux-and-mac.248643/#post-259011 Additional features in this build include the ability to preserve the last search request on the Effects panel when switching categories and keyboard shortcut entry to enable the Magnifier. Plus various fixes.
  15. LWKS has Acquired ioGates REACT and they have given a talk to the British Film Editors on this and how this and Lightworks together with Qscan fit together: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RS5vf9j1fwk&t=2200s https://www.redsharknews.com/lwks-acquires-iogates-aps-bringing-highly-secure-review-and-collaboration-to-lightworks This is now included in the new V2022.3 beta release. This feature allows a user with the share link to paste this directly into the application under the Libraries section, which gives a straightforward but powerful way of accessing shared content and editing it immediately. There are audio improvements, including a Native 'Noise Reducer' Effect (Lightworks Create/Pro only), a new Startup Audio Plugin Scanner Functionality (Lightworks Pro Only), also looping a section of a Clip/Sequence, and 40 Music Tracks for all users via the Epidemic Sound Library Integration (Lightworks Create/Pro only for the first build). Plus an Enhanced Audio Plugin Parameter Panel.
