    No, there are reasons for using NR on occasion. I don't generally do it, but I'll apply it on occasion if there was an issue on set. Sometimes I'll use NR on Blue-channel only, which tends to get...

    I dunno. There's "a unique look," and then there's skug-ugly. I can turn three knobs in Resolve and get an equally-ugly look. I just don't think "creative LUTs" are useful used this way.

    Am I crazy, or do these pictures look ugly? (Asking for a friend.)

    You can do all this stuff in a color-correction program, you know. No need to use a LUT at all -- but I have no issue with a...

    I think this is extremely good advice. Look at it this way: on a highly-mobile documentary, you need somebody to carry spare batteries, help wrap up lighting cables, swap out used camera SSDs, and...

    We did a ballpark comparison between a $15,000 2019 Mac Pro workstation and a comparable HP z8 Windows workstation last week, and the Mac was about $3000 more expensive (even more for the rackmount)....

    Naw, the Alexas will do 2K (and quite a few of them would do 2.8K). If the end result is HD for TV or commercials or a 2K theatrical release, it's fine, particularly at this price range. The images...

    It is interesting as to how much the 2K-3K Alexa prices have dropped since the release of the LF and Mini LF. The daily rental prices have never been lower on KitSplit, ShareGrid, and the various...

    It depends on scene content. I've seen it in all kinds of situations, certainly even with film going back years. We get it today with 4K restorations if the film is sharp enough and they happened to...

    Crop or scale? If you scale it (using zoom), you will inevitably have aliasing and other artifacts... they're not gigantic, but they are noticeable if you know what to look for.

    Dermot is very wise. I often sit back in the color room and calculate how many total shots are in the show when we conform, and a lot of modern films move fast, like 1500-1600 cuts in 2 hours. (Joker...

    But amazingly, it's true. My IMDB credits don't list the projects I did prior to 1980, but there were a few. And I worked as a camera operator for almost ten years before that.
