I apologize in advance if this isn't the correct sub-forum for this question, but it didn't seem like it fit into any of the other ones so I put it here. Feel free to change it if it doesn't. Lately, I've been watching all kinds of footage from different camera brands ranging from the most budget friendly film-making cameras all the way up to the premium stuff. And while there is no doubt that we're living in the golden age of cameras (in terms of being accessible to new-comers), at one point I came across a comment where someone mentioned the term "motion cadence" and how high level cameras have that little something that stands out against the budget versions. I never really knew the word for it until he said that term, and I have noticed that it really does add a pleasing motion to the image quality (this is all assuming 24fps 180 shutter, of course). What is the reason for this discrepancy between manufacturers? The only thing I could think of was perhaps the type of shutter being used in digital cameras but that's about it. Thanks
Question about Motion Characteristics
Kitae Lee posted a topic in General DiscussionHello I have some question about film's Motion Characteristic some movies like terminator 2, total recall (1990) are has a video-ish Motion Characteristic. terminator 2 is shot on film, it is 24 fps, it was not more than 180' shutter angle but it has lots of motion blurs, so motion feel like between film and video. and see these pictures please it's near 01:39:02 screen grab in terminator 2 / 24 fps video file you see some long kind of lamp in picture and this is same cut when fast panning. there is triple ghost. what make this thing? entire movie is like this when fast movement. ghosting and lots of motion blurs and video-ish motion. because camera shutter type? between halfmoon,bowtie? or lighting? telecine,scan? I really don't know. and sorry about awful grammar. Thank you.
For quite some time, I have wondered how the "sticky" (as I call it) slow-motion is done, the type that you see a lot in music videos of the 1980's. By sticky, I mean a noticeable appearance of advancing from frame to frame, as opposed to the much more common fluid and smooth slow-motion often seen in movies and TV. Here is an example, if you are still wondering what I am referring to. (The link should start right at the 3:22 mark, which is where there is a slow motion of two kids in a traditional dance). https://youtu.be/BY_ozF-4IAU?t=3m22s If you are any older than 30 and used to watch music videos in those days, it will probably be familiar to you! My question is actually a two-part question: how is that effect done? And...is there a way to do this effect, or indeed even any slow-mo at ALL, with a Super 8 camera??
Motion Control lighting question
Michael DeFilio posted a topic in Visual Effects CinematographyHey all, I'm gearing up to shoot a music video using a Kessler Revolution head as a motion control rig. I'm looking to shoot the band in a large open warehouse that has some windows but I will need to bring in lighting. The finished video will look like a one shot video where the band is performing and the camera pans to the left continuously and each time the band starts to exit frame right they enter frame left, and this happens throughout the video. I have linked a previs video I put together to help explain the concept. My plan is setup the Revolution Head in the center of the warehouse and program it to rotate 360 degrees in 4 minutes and 5 seconds (the length of the song). From here I will shoot a clean plate and shots with the band performing. Each pass that has the band performing I will shift the band to the left in a circular trajectory so I can then layer the shots in post. I'm guessing the post would require some masking but nothing too extreme. My issue is, how will I get the lighting to match and stitch consistently throughout the video. I fear that unless I light the entire space the lighting won't stitch properly. Any information is greatly appreciated.

RT Motion mkIII FIZ
Duncan Vogel posted a topic in AC's & DIT'sHas anybody got any experience with this new fiz unit? http://www.rtmotion.com/ I've got a 3D show coming up and they want to use this in a dual receiver configuration. Im used to the Preston 3 and Im uncertain of its reliability. But I noticed the receiver is only 90 grams! and the price tag for a 3 motor setup is only 10k! that seems insane to me. Anyway, if it works out I would seriously consider purchasing one. thanks
