  1. I’m looking into purchasing RatPac’s Satellite and was wondering if anyone has used it with LumenRadio’s Moonlite? Do they work well together or should I just get the Satellite and Cintenna 2 receivers?

    Thank you!

  2. That's not a bad idea! I actually own a Small HD monitor, but I was using a TVLogic on a job where I needed the 9:16 frame lines, and the TVLogic was the only monitor on set that would have been able to generate them.
  3. So I crated a 1280x800px Artboard in Photoshop and imported a 16:9 image. I rotated the image 90 degrees and scaled it down to fit into the 1280x800px Artboard. I found that the first vertical line should go to 415px and the second vertical line should go to 865px If the imported image was 1280x800 and rotated 90 degrees, it would be 390 for the first vertical line and 890 for the second. If anyone can confirm that this is correct, that would be wonderful! Thank you!
  4. Hello, I am having difficulty figuring out how to setup 9:16 frame lines on the TVLogic VFM-056WP. Can anyone tell me what each USER Marker value should be at and or explain how I could come up with the right aspect ratio? Thank you in advance to anyone who can help!
  5. I see. Thank you for the explanation!
  6. What do the different color tapes represent?
  7. Thank you Max, and Bruce for sharing your approaches! I appreciate your explanations. I guess it's safe to say that there is no right or wrong thing to do. At the end of the day it comes down to what your intentions are as far as contrast etc. So I will experiment with different approaches and gain an understanding of the different outcomes. It seems like the safe bet is to keep whatever part of the scene you don't want to lose within the 6 stops of SDR, this way there is no need to create power windows in post, or just have a flatter image, and it gives you wiggle room later.
  8. This makes a lot of sense. Thank you for the response Michael!
  9. Hello, When you are metering a scene, do you meter for the camera's dynamic range, or for the 6 stops in SDR or the 13+ stops in HDR? For instance, if your camera has 6 stops of highlight dynamic range, and 8 stops of shadow dynamic range, do you keep everything in your scene between those 14 stops or do you keep everything in between the lets say 6 stops of standard dynamic range? I hope this question makes sense! Thanks in advanced to anyone who can help! - Matt
