I appreciate the tip! If I could bother you further, do you have a recommendation for programs for pulling the scenes? Cheers!
Question. What source does one pull clips such as these to use in videos similar to this or other video essays? Is there a legal, ethical and practical method for acquiring movie/TV show clips? I appreciate anyone who takes the time to answer!
Hey I have been wanting to work on a project for a few years now that would require mocap but shelved it due to cost. Your setup might help fix that! Do you have any video online of it in action? I would love to do more reading into what you have going on and see if I could reasonably use it for myself. Cheers!
As a current member of the Army taking linguistics courses and studying film, this movie literally felt like it was made for me. Beautifully crafted in every way. Please go see it! I am about to read the source text.
The arguments below are mostly valid and informed but the actual issue here is somewhat unadressed. The FAA feels inclined to resrict drone usage not because it's another thing for them to monitor and control but because drones actually do take up airspace. A altitude limitaiton of 400agl would help to limit most conflicts seeing as the minimum altitude for manned aircraft over inhabbited areas is 500agl but there are still craft such as emergency helicopters to consider. Yes the public is largely misinformed about the usage and implication of drones but the FAA isn't restricting their use for public opinion but to avoid future battles.
As far as requiring a Private Pilot's License to operate a drone there are several things to consider. Is the FAA going to make pilots get a full fledged certificate to fly fixed or rotary wing aircraft? Or is the FAA going to form a new license specifically for drones? If the FAA makes people get a pilots license to operate drones then I can only assume that they will require commercial certification if you are flying a drone as a form of income. A PPL takes 40 hours flight time to attain in the US and a commercial license takes minimum 250 hours. That puts a huge limitation on people seeking to use drones in part of their buisness and so I believe that it would be in the best interest of all to keep the certifications seperate. Putting a multiple year gap between flying a drone for fun and for commerce would do nothing but hurt opinion of the FAA and drone users wallets. Of course they could also allow pilots to accumulate hours towards a commercial ticket via drone usage in the same way you log your hours in a conventional plane. That would likely cause a spike in commercial ratings due to the incredible price difference betwen drone and aircraft flight. I just wanted to point out some red tape to consider and also point out that it's not really that bad and it is assuredly for a reason.
