I have been using the upgrade to the 6000, the a5100, and I am not massively impressed. It lacks a lot of manual controls on the body, and requires use of a lot of menus. It also has been overheating after 5-10 minutes of recording. I have not tried the G7, but all reviews seem to be pointing to the fact that it is simply a smaller GH4. A ton of on body dials and 4k shooting which will give so many more options of editing in post. I am seriously considering getting it shortly unless anyone who owns it knows something I am missing out on. The G7 seems to be an updated GH2, which was/is a great camera. Also note that there is no viewfinder on the sony.
I want to pitch in here, and see if anyone owns the G7, and how they find it to be? Coming from the GH2, I don't mind the size, and would say to S M, the g7 looks like a steal.
Replying to my prior question if this info will help anyone else.
Workspaces are saved in the following folder on a mac:
Alternately, I found success by checking Window -> Workspaces -> Import Workspaces from Projects. I then when back to ver.8 and saved a different project using each custom workspace. When I opened them back up in ver.9 (2015) the workspaces were imported. Now to test out the new features!
If you want to back up your own Custom Workspaces:
C:\Documents and Settings\User Name\My documents\Adobe\Premiere Pro\2.0
Glad to hear that you like the workflow panels. I was bummed that they got rid of all of my custom workspaces. Any idea on how to restore them?
This board came up as a related discussion. I realize you posted a while ago, but I really enjoyed the short. Making a story happen in 2 minutes is a huge challenge, and I think you did it well. I enjoyed the beautiful shots of Scotland too. Personally I would have taken out some of the dead space when we has pausing between words, I found it distracting (Like at 1:38). Besides that great piece.
Guzel, I applaud your desire to make a film, especially trying to bootstrap it and make it at the lowest cost with what you have. Some of the most impactful documentaries have been created with little budget and with found footage. Don't let people get you down, it is the vision and the story that makes it, not the studio quality sound.
My vote for you would be a couple portable audio recorders. I have had great success with the DR-50, including the built in mics, and I am sure there are even cheaper portable recorders available.
Please do share your final video with us. I'd welcome a look into a world that is different to my daily views.
