Incidentally, TIFFs is the one of the two formats, JPEG 2000 being the other one, that is accepted for the DCI packaging, so it's a pretty standard format in the DI process. Prores is a highly compressed codec and you should always strive to grade using uncompressed files, such as TIFF, DPX, Cineon, uncompressed 10 bit QT etc.
    Good point! I do pro-res before because it allows me to grade the clip and not have to worry about grading individual stills. Perhaps I could just export as a image sequence and re-import into color. Im going to go test now!
    It changes every day, but is always the same: research for Equilibrium.
    I believe that the Image, as the language of Cinema, is formed by the conflict and harmony of the two different elements of life: Light and Darkness.
    Trying to find an Equilibrium between these two opposite forces as I visualize different stories, becomes every day the reason for my creative effort.
    The research of this is my own life.

    If you want to do HDRI time-lapse, Photomatix is great tool. I has a batch mode and we have used it for that purpose.

    My Red is called Vertov after a Russian avantgarde filmmaker, a pioneer in modern cinematography, a true revolutionary who later suffered under Stalin's bureaucracy.

    Yes. The moonlit shot with the snow-capped mountains was the Very Long Baseline Array's 25-meter dish in Owens Valley (Big Pine). It's a beautiful telescope.

    There are also a couple of VLA shots from New Mexico in there, but it was incredibly windy when I was there. I'm hoping to head back there.

    Larry has also been to VLBA with me shooting, and to VLA, although our story of meeting at VLA is kind of a farce... it's very funny. I spotted Larry's car out at VLA and tried to flag him down, but Larry thought I was VLA security and fled down the highway... lmao.

    Tom is a master of time lapse. Always stunning images. If he could make the equivalent of a "motion coffee table" book, he'd sell a million.
