    I don't think that's exactly true. If you watch the June 3 video presentation on the Mac Pro, Blackmagic is very much a participant in the demo and Apple specifically sites Resolve and the actually...

    Actually, if you watch last year's NAB speech by Grant Petty, he says they felt it was "more efficient" (which I think means "more cost-effective") just to develop their own codec instead of paying...

    I think the wrinkle from Blackmagic is that their BM Raw codec is partially debayered, so that was one way they were able to avoid infringing the Red patents. I think if they had violated them, there...

    Another thing that helps is to use really powerful hardware. BMD has their Recommended Configuration guide on their support site, and if you follow those rules, you can put together a system that...

    Tiffen Glimmer Glass can create some really amazing looks. I've often told clients, "this is a look that would be hard to do in post." You basically have to shoot it that way.

    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 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.
