    safe method to keep footage stored for long term use Blu Ray and DVD disks de laminate and cannot be relied upon either Even when written as data rather than video 35mm negative is a great archive medium but film stock is ceasing production from most manufactures and unless stored properly the film can deteriorate and is highly flammable LTO tape is a great storage medium but only if you have a way to access the data in the future Any videotape format is also a rough bet because there is usually compression involved and most video formats of the past decade are digital not analog Archiving is tough but it can be right with any of the formats mentioned as long as you do something that most forget We all seem to understand how Moores Law affects camera technology etc but seem to miss the point on archive Because technology changes so fast we cannot guarantee the integrity of the playback or export mechanisms in place Proprietary formats and files structures are often the major cause of problems for archives The other is hardware to playback and transfer the footage You cannot simple assume that because you have all your footage on a video tape or disk that you can retrieve it down the line You also cannot assume that because you have all that footage stored that you can convert it into the current format of the day There is a solution to the problem of proper archive although it can be costly The cost is worth it and probably the only way to recover and retrieve what was archived If you choose an archive format you must think of all corresponding equipment that goes along with it Example If you archive onto LTO 5 tape it would only make sense that you not only store the tape cartridges but also an LTO 5 tape drive and whatever type of computer with software required to read it and most importantly export it Without an interface for your archive method you simple have a tape disk etc with now way to use it down the line Storing a bunch of Avid AVR77 files back in 1997 is a good example Unless you have a really old Avid system that is working there is not much you can do with those files Solution take the entire Avid solution at the time of vaulting and include it with the storage media and whatever backups you can do An example today would be to take your Avid DNXHD files on LTO store it with a LTO drive and a laptop with Avid software on it and probably a multiformat card reader Whatever the format you choose to archive to it just makes sense to make multiple backups to as many formats as possible If you can vault all of it with the appropriate playback devices and a computer that can be offlined and stored with it This is the only way to

  • Making Low Budget look like Big Budget « Wide Open Camera
    us quick access to the necessary officials should any trouble arise The scout also revealed that this particular location was relatively shaded through out the day and we would be able to roll for the better part of the morning without having to worry about the sun punching through With this in mind the cowboy framing allowed us to place the 1K LED closer to our talent coming from camera left which helped to create more of a wrap across his face as opposed to an even fill that was naturally occurring We had a PA stand just behind him and to the right with some flex fill to give the talent an edge Once we had gotten the coverage we needed for the 4 different spots we were shooting we moved on to the location for the first half of the spots The backyard had absolutely zero tree coverage from the sun so we were facing the daunting task of trying to keep the lighting consistent and attractive looking with only a 6 6 frame Luckily the patio had a wooden truss covering the majority of it We draped shower curtains across the top of the covering to cut down and diffuse the direct sunlight We then staged all of the action under it and used the 6 6 frame with the standard silk as a bounce to key the action We started with a wide shot then moved in for OTS coverage of the dialogue repositioning the frame for the back light on each set up and using the 1K LED as the key I had to use 1 8th minus green to help improve the skin tones under the 1K LED as well as some spun diffusion to soften it up A small wall of negative fill was put up to help create some contrast on the talent s faces under the harsh sun Despite the quick turn around I was pleased to find out that I would be able to do a quick grade on the ABNorm footage I knew that despite our efforts some subtle relighting was going to be required to bring out the best from the ABNorm footage I was given a ProRes422 master to grade with Colorista II via AECS5 5 Shot 1 As you can see with out a client monitor on set we missed a huge lens flare which ruined a good chunk of the lower left hand corner of the frame A secondaries mask was used to bring the contrast back into that area of the frame Luckily this shot was on screen for a split second so not all was lost I also increased the exposure on the family with another mask as well as improved the over all saturation and highlight retention Shot 2 The second shot in the sequence had a bit of a yellow cast to it over all which was eliminated in the master controls I then brought up the exposure on the actress

  • New versions of Cinema Profile for DSLRs from CinePlus (video comparison with CineStyle) « Wide Open Camera
    Giovanni proves to be an adept marketer with his slew of new example videos demonstrating the potential for these new profiles It is claimed that the Lightform profile can out perform Cinestyle in terms of highlight roll off Curious I decided to pit the Lightform C profile against my own grade of the Cinestyle profile to test the range and see if it s true The verdict Before I get into it keep in mind that Lightform C is meant to be used in situations where you have little or no time for post color or you are handing the footage off to a client and have no control over it I ve seen a few shooters roll with flat picture profiles only to hand off their media and see a completed cut out in the public with no grade work done whatsoever With this in mind I left the Lightform C footage untouched but graded the Cinestyle footage as I would normally Now I wouldn t say there s any hidden detail being brought out in the highlights however it does appear to have a smoother roll off You can see this in the bright edge of the roof in the first comparison shot as well as around the sun in the second Skin tones appear decent however I feel there s a bit more green in the overall image than I d like I d recommend dialing down the in camera sharpening as it can be a bit intense in certain situations The cinestyle footage was shot with the sharpening turned off completely and it s especially apparent in the first shot When you take into consideration the 5 or so minutes I took correcting the levels on the cinestyle footage for each shot when looking at the comparison I d say the new CinePlus profiles do an excellent job They re perfect for handing the footage off to the client and resting assured the color will be decent alexwalkerstudios com Follow me on Twitter awalker47 Jared Abrams Visit My Website View My Other Posts Jared Abrams is a cinematographer based in Hollywood California After many years as a professional camera assistant he switched over to still photography About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography He just happened to be in the right place at the right time Related Posts Avid Media Composer Symphony 6 Sony NEX FS100 Complete Workflow 11min Guide Posted on 12 July 2012 Why I Shoot By Chris Marino Posted on 24 April 2011 SmallHD Announces New 702 Bright Monitor 1499 US Posted on 09 September 2015 SmallHD DP7 NAB 2012 Posted on 16 April 2012 First Look Hurlbut Visuals DSLR Cinema Rentals Posted on 09 August 2011 Zac Majors Flying Zippy Hang Gliding With HDSLR s Posted on 27 July 2010 http www cineblur com Brent Pierce Nice Been wanting to see a side by side comparison of these two To
