  1. And I also predict in 3 years, they will make even worse movies than the politically correct fabricated propaganda movies we have today.
  2. but it is just a mac screenshot from a ripped DVD9. Maybe this particular copy is especially good? I skipped to other scenes with blacks... they look consistent with this one. Magical...
  3. yes, but why aren't the other images toss away and replace with black, instead of the ugly clusters.
  4. could someone explain why the last photo from the Leopard has zero such issue? It's got black all over, but absolutely no pixelation.
  5. Unfortunately, yes. I took some STILL photos just 2 days ago, and even in still pictures this happens. Sadly those DSLRs, however expensive they are, sucks balls at low light. Below is the photo I took at ISO 6400, same camera as yours 5D MK II. The lights are from the city's installations itself. So I doubt it had any jells whatsoever. Now, I think it is useless unless at night.
  6. This is some insightful information. I wonder if there was any case they specifically made short-end reels just so they can tweak them scene by scene instead of the whole reel. But that would be splitting hairs on information got lost a long time ago. Thanks again David. Just like everything else, I find the whole coloring/filming process always started with a structure with more control and freedom, and gradually moved to more and more restrictive formats to color stocks, to digital... much like the political atmosphere, and the internet... something tells me it's not a coincidence.
  7. yes, I'm trying to dig out where this technique is documented and saved... but no luck, all the info I can find stops at "a complex dye-imbibation process" without knowing what exactly is it!! I don't mean to split hairs, but I think it helps me to understand color better. right now I simply don't understand why film has the film look, digital has the digital look, and no matter how hard I try, color grading just does not match it.
  8. And besides, the 3-Strip process, is really a 2-strip... since the blue and red are stacked on top of each other.. only the green strip is exposed on it's own.
  9. I'm still wondering about the process of what Techicolor does after the film is exposed. But you reply makes me questions a bit future that is not really revenant to this post in particular: What do you mean by colors are tied together? A digital camera sensor is all monochrome, it's the Bayer layers on top that filters the color of Blue, Red, and Green. Similarly, a color film stock operates the same way, with three emulsion layers of Yellow Cyan and magenta. So essentially, they are all 3-colored process stacking on top of each other. Are you saying, if I film the same scene wit
  10. this is not exactly the case, some( including me) does think the new digital movies look like crap, but (other people, not me) still throw themselves after it, solely because of the over towering market job they did. I mean many award nominated movies today are politically motivated, with flimsy stories and subpar dialogues, yet makes millions. Think about how our perception got played with. I also think the design of cars compared to old classic cars is simmilar, yet for the same economical reasons, older(sometimes better, not always) designs are discarded solely for economic reasons.
  11. I find the internet explanation of Technicolor 3 strip process inconclusive, and not very informative. Yes, scenes are filmed through a prism onto three strips of film at the same time. And then what? I'm assuming that is more than just stack all three and make a print, and Voila, you got this beautiful skin tone and print out of the box. So what does Technicolor - the company do after this. How do they mix/ grade the color to render the looks we know of. And more importantly, why can't we duplicate the same look with later newer film stocks, let alone those far off digi
  12. The problem is I shot RAW on my BMPCC 4k, and RAW stills images on my Canon 5D MK II... .and this problem still exists. what are the formats that will eliminate this problem? I mean when we export the footage from whatever editing softwares, compressions are commonplace, so does that mean there is no way to avoid it?
