I'm a filmmaker who enjoys being creative, taking photography, working with graphic design, writing music, traveling to new places and meeting people.
Here's my second video ever of a wedding. A camera is BMCC 2.5k shot prores and B/C Cameras are 5dmkII's.
I grabbed audio off board, levels were good but once in the editing booth I found out all the audio was trashed and clipped. So I had to do a ton of editing on audio which took days.
Second, I try not to get close to the ceremony so we were far away from the people. My 200mm on the BMCC is a 450mm.
Third, we have no steady cam, sliders or custom rigs. I used a heavy old tripod (50 pounds with a fluid head) for the BMCC and bought two video monopods and found they barely hold the BMCC w the L70-200mm 2.8.
Finally, my editing style is different than traditional wedding videos, faster, more cuts, I re-created and edited some of the music too.
I don't know, thoughts? Critiques welcome. Thanks!
Ahh yes, another somebody drunk on bias from the media thinking their rant is warranted. How about you get back to work, stop the libel and fallacious attack and come up with something original.
He knows Davinci and was making a tutorial but... I couldn't get into the grade. Very amaturish. I know its hard with the poor lighting and bland set but still, it could of been more polished.
Before HD while in film studies in 2003, I shot my project on DVCPro 50 and was very happy with the outcome. Yes, I was working hard to pull shallow depth of field but I made it work (pulled people far from the background).
Back in those days I focused on writing and the story I would tell. Now there is so much tech candy available it is easy for the substance (message) to become lean.
Actually I was working on H.264 from my 5dmkII. You think ProRes would fair better?
I have Davinci Pro (I own the dongle) and still export from PPro CC 2015 via XML. However, once a project is imported into Davinci to grade, I have messed around with editing it. What I found was the performance in the timeline was really bad. Not the playback, but merely scrolling through, sometimes clicking on a clip and dragging. At first it was not bad, but then performance would wane and things became so bad to where dragging clips would be cumbersome.
Has anyone experienced this problem?
PPro is super fast on my machine with the same projects.
Rendering in Resolve is fine for me (1080p work from BMCC so far).
I have a 6 core 980x clocked to 3.75ghz, 24GB ram and an Nvidia 480GTX, SSD drives and a RAID 0 with WD Blacks.
Sure the 480GTX is old (I've been waiting to buy something and then new cards come out, then I wait for the price to drop then newer cards come out lol.) But I'm getting 85 FPS rendering 1080 down to 720p footage with 3-4 nodes and sharpen. About 55 FPS for 1080p BMCC footage. That's pretty good for me thus far.
But the performance editing in Davinci worries me.
