This is amazing. I've been wondering how to do a similar thing but never knew enough to really deconstruct it and figure it out.
My main question - what about getting the paint on the skin? Also, the keying? Seems as though there is post work and that isn't the paint?
Great great work
Only 8 bit for a 'pro' monitor? I think 10 should at least be standard.
The newly released LG 32ud99 seems much more appealing. :)
How is it powered?
I guess it also comes down to finding the right brand. I've come across a number that are incredibly hesitant to be open and allow creativity to flourish, rather dictating exactly what and when it's said.
Definitely an interesting read, hop to get there someday.
Have you got any examples? Would love to see :)
Well just to add balance to this conversation. I, on the other hand, have had nothing but good things to say about BM products.
For me they've been absolutely rock solid and extremely dependable. My day job is working in a small production unit for a large London based university. Not only do we have cameras that we own and rent (BMCC, Ursa Mini, BMSC4k) but we also have a bunch of production stuff (Atem Switcher, h264 recorders, hyperdecks, etc).
There have been small issues. One of our Studio cameras had audio issues specifically when using the XLR input whilst the video feed is being recorded to an external recorder. In all honesty, getting assistance was amazingly simple - i literally just gave them a call and spoke to an engineer who said they'd test it. A few days later i receive an email confirming that is a new issue they've discovered. About a month later, new camera updates hit and to my surprise there was a fix (this is the current firmware at the time of writing).
Sure, I dont agree with some of the things they do (announcing cameras with long wait times, not keeping us up to date) but at the same time, nobody is doing what they do and the Ursa Mini is one of the best cameras I've ever used. The image is incredible.
Anyway, I hope this was somewhat helpful. Ben is right, go to bmcuser :)
