I have a matt box that I rarely use, mostly due to budget restraints I went with screw on IRND's and the matt box gets in the way. If you're working on a small budget and the money is to be spent wisely I'd put a matte box way down the list.
I think I missed the first time "Big Little Lies" was examined under the lead in of, big-little-lies-editing. This seems to go into more detail or has taken that idea and fleshed it out better. It certainly has caused me to go watch "Big Little Lies" whereas I was not interested in the story at all before. Murder Mystery? done to death.
These type of adaptors have been on ebay for a few years now, They always look cheap and nasty. I can't imagine this will be any better. How? The girl didn't seem to know much about it. Yeah, I'd give it a miss unless you like parting with your money on useless equipment. Or someone show me something good shot using this
I've been a Mac user since 2002, win98 was the last PC software I owned. My current iMac is now 5 years old and barely gets through 2.5K RAW. The one thing that drew me to the iMac for visual work was the screen and I still love how all Apple products handle contrast and colour. (sorry Queens English spell checker here in Australia)
I've almost gone down the Hackintosh route a few times these last few years, even collected parts over on a wish list at Amazon and on eBay. The last 2 years I've teamed up with another creative and we have the whole Adobe Cloud Apps on PC and iMac.
He's doing the editing and I do the colouring and it has always been a PITA, even with a local LAN to work efficiently between Premiere and Davinci. It's decision time and I have been getting into developing websites, logo's, graphics, photos using Adobe's LR, PS, Xd, Ai, MUSE and I'll also be switching over to Premiere for most editing and colouring work.
Apart from finding a good screen, (I do also have a Flanders), a PC build is looking far more economic and powerful for the buck. I'll still keep my iMac for surfing and backup duties and for colour rendition until it dies. After 15yrs in the OS environment, it will be strange going back to the WIN (I do have a tiny tablet running WIN8 and it's a PITA to get around on) I think I hate Explorer as much as I do Safari. Pffft Safari hasn't even worked on my iMac for the last 3 yrs but that's another story.
For us creatives and the need for speed and grunt, building our own Hack's is the best bang for the buck going forward. If I had the dosh tho I'd get someone else to build it.
I do really like the case Oakley, the Apple and X pirate theme you got going there. I might do the same on my PC case build for shit and giggles. Nice build and thanks for the great tutorial.
PS Another reason I'm switching is to go with DNxHR & DNxHD codecs instead of ProRes. Cheers.
Thinking about this one for a new music vid, I'm not sure what will work but I'll try and cover my bases. This is in my head.
One Projector and One BMCC Camera and One Sony A7 and a flanders field mon.
Position Projector and Camera 1 and 2
1) project black n white video/stills onto a wall. Record
2) Add bright couch as prop against the wall. record with and without projection
3) Add band on the couch, record with and without projection
4) Connect flanders to Camera then to projector.
5) Try projecting each scene and record (this will probably create an infinite loop, maybe a little HDR kind of sort of thingy) From the BMCC=>Flanders=>Project Live=>Record on BM & Sony.
6) Try variations of the above with a green screen on the wall behind the band
All projected scenes synced via clapper.
7) Blend and cut all this together with other POV's, CU's, Slo-mo, stop motion.
oh dear, it's so complex I can't explain it...lol
I need a room, projector, couch, band, 2 cameras...some leds and time. perhaps some medicinal plants ^_^
Thanks for the heads up on this amazing story.
