Wait... 80fps in HD now? Is this somehow exclusive to shooting with these lenses? I must admit I'm so confused as to what frame-rates this camera actually shoots. Tell me if I have this wrong but from what I can see the copy on the product page says up to 120fps in cropped HD, the specs say up to 60fps (depending on resolution and codec) and now Grant says that shooting in HD mode with these lenses is up to 80fps. I'm sure it's probably me that's confused here but if anyone else can clarify this for me I'd appreciate it! Thanks :)
Christ, I remember this from the fire clips years ago. Amazing to see he continued with it and how far it's come. What a nice chap!
Even 3D animated movies have a DOP dude (who usually supervise the layout artists). They may not create the scene but they direct the photography.
"Darth Varder" hahaha! :D
True, I know what you are saying but at least other developers (Blackmagic immediately spring to mind) acknowledge this by releasing a public beta. It's about trust and Adobe take for granted that we as paid professionals trust that their software works because it's been released to web and isn't an open beta. When Resolve 12 Beta came out I installed it on my laptop but wouldn't dream of installing to my workstation because I know that if I were to install it and something went wrong then it would be my own fault. Adobe have been doing this for years now and I really doubt that they don't know better by now. Anyway, my point is that they can resolve these trust issues by increasing their closed beta numbers, being a little less ambitious with their updates (which let's face it would suck but at least the bloody thing would work) or simply doing a public beta. At least then I can finally remove Adobe tech support from my speed dial list (no joke!) ;p
This is good news :)
They really need to start classifying their major updates as Betas though until they get their shit together. It's sad to say that I know now not to trust the first wave of a major update from Adobe and wait for the next release but I learned the hard way by losing time and money and having to grovel to clients for missing deadlines due to my Adobe software dying on me for *insert bug here*. I'm really glad they DO listen and they usually fix shit pretty quick but it can't be good that it has become a literal joke in the industry now that we all know a new update from them means unstable software for us. I just feel for all those who are just getting used to this and might have to learn the hard way too.
Just think of the children Adobe! Think of the children! ;)
