Guys from NFS, you should really warn about the flickering in the post, because this can harm someone's work. It's a well know issue among those who have been trying ACR for a while.
I can post my own examples on Youtube. Oh, and Merry Christmas!
It's a brilliant tool, but not designed for video. I don't know if it had an update, but I must warn: it causes flickering in the composition.
I really like the highlight and shadows sliders, for instance, and I think they work better in ACR than in Resolve. So I tried with Magic Lantern raw and CinemaDNG files of the BMPCC and the change of exposure, highlight, vibrance and some other sliders causes a flicker in the image, especially if it has change in brightness in the middle of the shoot. The ACR has some auto settings that can't be changed.
This is a creative decision, not a technical one. Otherwise, you risk to limit yourself and close your mind.
If you want to recreate a mood from certain period, you can add references in the aesthetic, just like "Rush" did with the lenses with it's chromatic aberrations and focus fall to add that 60's/70's retro feeling.
LOL! Very funny part.
Saw the movie. Great one, and very well shot. Shows the C300 qualities... and flaws.
Just in the first hour, I picked two moments that the C300 couldn't handle well (and I wasn't looking for issues). When Adèle was in a stairs and kissed a mate, there was aliasing on all over the grey brick wall. And when she met Emma for the first time and asked how much she had to pay for the drink, there was a fast pan from the bar tender to Adèle "crying" the rolling shutter.
I could pick other moments, but that's not the point. The point is the camera isn't perfect, but get the job done. No one who watched the movie with me saw those flaws, I think only trained eye could do that in the first run. With the C100 mark II around the corner and with an external recorder to get ProRes, I believe you would set to do great works, being them events, documentary or narrative, without adding to much to the camera.
