This is a minor update to the version of the video that I shared a few months ago. At that time, I didn't have my new MacPro, so I couldn't view my work in 4K. Now, I'm going back through some of the films and remastering them with a different workflow. Before the MacPro, I could edit 4k footage, but then I would send it from FCPX to Da Vinci Resolve as HD, color grade it there, then round trip it back to FCPX to finish and export as HD. Unfortunately, that workflow left me without a finished 4K version. Now, I'm doing primary grading in REDCINE-X Pro, editing in FCPX, and if I want to do a bit of secondary grading in Da Vinci Resolve, I send it from FCPX as 4K rather than HD. What I get back in FCPX is 4K ProRes 422 that I use to make a final 4K version, then have FCPX down sample into an HD version for sharing. This new version of Fiji Below is the HD result of that 4K end to end workflow.
In Sept/Oct of 2013, I went on the maiden voyage of the Fiji Siren. This short video is a sampling of scenes from that trip. It includes footage from the Blight Waters, Namena Nature Reserve and Somo Somo Strait. All shot on RED.
