  1. Hi all!New to this forum, excited to chat and learn from the experts!My question involves syncing two channel/track audio to video in FCPX.I'm capturing dialogue/sound (it's a cooking show) using two Sennheiser wireless lav mics connected to a Zoom H4N recorder. Each subject/host has her own transmitter and receiver.I'm looking for the cleanest/most efficient way to sync this sound to the video while being able to work on each individual mic and mix the two as needed.Here's what I've discovered so far:1) If I set the Zoom record mode to stereo I get one file and left/right channels. If I sync

  3. Hi guys, im new here, and i'd like some advice. I own a Canon 6d + 24-105mm, and i'm going to shoot a music video for a hip hop/trap artist. I've only shot a hardcore punk music video, and it was very fast paced and with several cuts. This time it seems to be different. Upon searching references, such as Post Malone, Travis Scott, etc, most, if not all videos rely heavily on slow motion scenes. Even the song the artist sent me is much calmer and sort of romatic than the others. But since the 6d can't shoot faster than 30fps at 1080p (if can with magic lantern, but the tests i made d
  4. Dear cinematography community, I have build my self a good pc system for various tasks such as: editing, color grading etc. My main fast hard drive for projects was a 1Tb M.2 SSD. It has been working really good (maybe a bit overkill). Now I ran in to a problem that most of the projects I work on are bigger than 1Tb and now I need a new solution for a fast storage system / drive to do editing and color grading with big RAW files. I have been looking into the Samsung 4Tb SSD (2.5") which would work but if a project is just a little over 4Tb than that would not work. So does anybo
  5. Hey everybody! As newcomer to the film, I released my first short film "The Whistle" two years ago. The short film hits the 500k clicks relatively quickly. I invested another year to write a story and create a second part. At the end of 2018, I shot the second part of the "The Whistle" series. Even this already counts 700k clicks on Youtube and became thus a worthy successor. In January, my latest low-budget project has started: "THE WHISTLE 3 | MARIA". It was a big challenge for me and my friends. A lot of time flowed into the post-processing because I wanted to create a completely new world
  6. Basically, I have adobe premiere pro and a terrible computer. Well, not necessarily terrible but the video card is not up to par, and at the moment I can't upgrade for another couple of months. I know about Adobe elements, which I've heard is a scaled down version of PP. I've also read about some free ones like filmora. Now, I have no problem paying for software, hence the monthly subscription, I just need something to edit traditional cinema (narrative shorts and drama). I might scale down to premiere elements if itll be better on my video card but if there's an even less system i
  7. RED Digital Cinema® released its RED R3D® SDK and accompanying REDCINE-X PRO® software with accelerated decode and debayering on NVIDIA CUDA® platforms. By offloading the compute-intensive decoding and debayering of RED R3D files onto one or more NVIDIA GPUs, real-time playback, edit and color grade of 8K footage is now possible. Benefits and efficiencies of this new software-hardware combination during the post-production process include: • 8K real-time 30 fps or greater playback performance • Up to 10x faster transcoding, depending on the format and content • Improved ef
  8. Hi! I'm from Russia and my English is not that great, so if you see any mistakes, just let it go) Lil bit about the work. I really wanted to shoot a music clip, because I love watching them and it's a cool spot to start developoing cinematography skills. We had no budget and because of that I decided to make a street video. So I just rented a GH5s and a 12-60 mm lens for it and that's it. Of course I had an idea! 1) to make the color contract between bright blue and yellow and make these colors the main colors for the work. 2) to shoot the video against the background of post-war Sovie
  9. Greeting everyone. I wonder if you guys can help me for getting the right iMac for editing Arri footage. I own an Arri Alexa XT and a Codex's reader with USB cable. There are some stores with used iMac's with very decent price tags and maybe you can tell me what specifications I should look for speedy editing. I am aware of the USB port which comes with the new iMac's with Retina display, but thanks to an adapter I can use an older model to do the job. I was thinking of an iMac 21.5" Core i5 2.7GHz, 1 TB HDD, 8 GB RAM. Is that a prudent choice? Thank you. Be

  12. For all the editors who are hiding out in this forum :ph34r: ....I was wondering if film is actually cheaper to once you got to post than video. Specifically, can you outline the difference in workflow between a Super16mm workflow vs shooting in 4k(or even 2k) and finishing on the accepted digital projection format(or 35mm)? My guess is that film would come out a bit cheaper and easier to manage for the beginner. Quite counter-intuitive I know, but digitial non-linear editing appears to be a black hole which swallows all of your budget.$10K! I'm betting that a 10:1 shooting ratio on Supe
  13. Hello All! New to this forum so I'm not sure if this is the right section to post this. We will be doing a documentary for a philanthropic women's group. This documentary will be highlighting women who have overcome obstacles and have risen to the top. We are wanting to do a POV scene where someone is looking up at a glass roof from the lobby of an office building and they rise straight up and crash through the glass ceiling. We are thinking a scale model might work as we are not set up to do CGI in the detail they will want. Not sure if this is the right approach. Any ideas ho

  15. Hello fellow filmmakers! I have been editing in premier and color grading in davinci resolve. Ive actually enjoyed the process more than I thought I would but am curious how to achieve certain moods and tonws. I love the memory type of colors we get in call me by your name during the grass scene how might I achieve that? Overall the film has a very blue tone so how might you suggest I grade more romantic scenes, sad scenes, neutral scenes? Lastly, I have had trouble transferring slow motion from premier to resolve any advice? Thanks so much! Tyrone
  16. hey everyone, I am trying to assemble a montage of sequences shot at 6fps. My intention was to do a step printing kind of thing to produce streaks of cars' taillights in traffic and a sea of people crossing at zebra crossings. Do correct me if I am wrong here. I was thinking of making triplicate copies of every 6 frames and then putting them in linear order to have the desired streaks effect. how can one do this on an fcp. I have some knowledge of editing. the footage was shot at 6 fps and transferred at 24 fps. I wish it was transferred at 6 fps. I will really apprec
  17. 27-inch iMac with Retina 5K Display Is this a good move? The base model is about $2300 and while I am doing full HD now, I plan to upgrade to 4K at some point. It's not for a job, but I want a powerful processor and if I can use the cloud and/or a seagate external HD for storage, Perhaps this will do nicely? 3.4GHz quad-core Intel i5 and an AMD Radeon Pro 570 with 4GB video memory. Comes with 8GB of RAM as standard, upgradeable to 32GB. Comes with 1TB hard drive on the base model; up to 2TB Fusion Drive on the high-end model. Thanks! dk

  21. Hey everyone! I would love to hear your feedback on my latest film. This was a translation of my time spent in Baltimore and Washington during the trump election. I wanted to show the viewer what it felt like as I was waling through the streets during this incredibly tense time in Americas history. http://www.freshfinishmedia.com/canadian-filmmaker-washington-election/
  22. Does anyone use the many animated transitions that come included with editing software in their moneymaking work? There are dozens of explosions, confetti bursts, peels, wipes, smears, shears, rolls, and flips in my system and I can buy hundreds more online if I want. But I'm pretty much a dissolve guy with the very occasional dip to white or black. Am I just boring and missing opportunities to make my work better? Are any of these transitions useful in ways that I'm not thinking of for enhancing serious documentary or narrative work?
  23. Hello all, About three years ago, I built a computer to do lower-end editing with Premiere and AfterFX. Most of the projects were geared towards my high school AV class, so nothing more than 5 or so minute works with 1080p project files and H.264 codecs. Today, I'm still using the same project files, but I am editing much larger-scale works (15+ minute works, plus incorporating DaVinci Resolve into my workflow). With my most recent project, I have just color graded via Resolve, and I am finding a lot of difficulty in just opening the Premiere file now. Premiere itself crashes quite f
