Haha really? C'mon. Your personal bias isn't needed when discussing filmmaking tools on a film website. And you won't save the world by trying to force everyone to use your workflow. Just don't comment on something that's going to rile you up?
Maybe it's just because it's shot and tracked on an iphone, but this tracking looks pretty horrible to me. Yes it's cool that it can all be done on a phone or ipad while you shoot. That's super convenient. But only if the track is actually good. And every example they show in the promo wiggles, shakes and gets off track. Every shot. It would make the actual track for anything other than a poor youtube video unuseable and you'd have to track the old fashioned way anyway.
Oh boo hoo. If you want to argue about the merit of these kinds of silly contests then sure, I'm on board. But the whole Adobe thing is just so boring. If you don't like it, don't use it. Some people have workflows that don't benefit from Adobe products. Some do. Calling Resolve way better though is just ignorant of the market and the needs of people all around.
They're all just different tools and you don't have to constantly scream that one is the best the down with the rest.
You're upset that a company has charged an early cancelation fee on a product you earlier agreed to a yearly contract for? I don't get it. I'm not a super fan of Adobe stuff but I use it a lot for work and this just doesn't seem like anything unusual for any company ever that does this sort of thing.
Hey Jerry, have you tried it? Is this what happens? Also, it doesn't seem like it costs more money than before, so I'm not sure how it's a money making scheme.
Well, that's what the director stated for their intention. He didn't want the actors to make look like the younger versions of themselves who had already appeared in his earlier films. But if you don't believe that as a reason, that's your call.
However, the above de-aging in this article is garbage and would never make the fuct. People are just giddy to see the little flickers of recreated images from movies they love pop in and out of the deepfakes. The smoothing and patchwork is awful and draws your eye to it.
Cool experiment but regardless of resources and team size, the above attempt is a failure.
