1. MC01 Multicam: Erste Schritte


    from Robin S. Kurz Added

    Multicam ist kein Profi-Feature mehr! Da inzwischen fast jeder eine HD Kamera in Form eines Telefons in seiner Tasche rumträgt, ist es ein leichtes von einem Ereignis gleich mehrere Winkel zu haben. Will man diese anschließend zusammenschneiden, nimmt uns Final Cut Pro X mit dem Multicam Fature ungemein viel Arbeit ab. Ich behaupte es ist auch das beste und einfachste aller Schnittprogramme! Und obwohl es an sich sehr einfach zu nutzen ist, bürgt es doch einige Details in sich die man wissen und beachten sollte, um das ganze noch mächtiger zu machen. Hier shauen wir uns erstmal unser Material an, legen schon mal das benötigte Ereignis an und schauen uns schon mal im Importfenster die ersten wichtigen Punkte an die es zu beachten gibt. nebenher gibt es auch viele kleine Tipps und Tricks auf den Weg!

        • Understanding Exports - Video Tutorial


          from David Kong Added 17.7K 553 49

          This video takes a practical approach as I go through the interface of Adobe Media Encoder, which both Premiere Pro and After Effects use, explaining what each of the sliders and checkboxes means and giving some guidelines about how and when to use them. You don't have to have seen my first tutorial first, but it will definitely help! This tutorial follows on from my last tutorial, How Codecs Work. In that video, I explain the principles that codecs use to compress data efficiently - at least, I gave a good summary, since giving all the details would take weeks! They really are quite complex. http://vimeo.com/104554788 Follow me on facebook.com/davidkongfilm

              • Kinemini 4K Grading Test


                from Jonathan Nicol Added 908 4 3

                So, I have only had my Kinemini for a week and already shot 2 projects with it, one for TV (a gutsy move I know). The 4K files are huge, but the colour science is amazing! Here are 4 quick shots I took this morning and graded. These were shot witha Samyang 16mm and a Canon L 24-70 f4 I processed the shots in DaVinci and actually found that processing them using the colour space REC.709 and the Gamma settings of 2.6, which has yielded the closest results to what I'm seeing on the back of the camera. Still not completely convinced by the KineRAW codec, it's ok in 4K and 2k, the colour science is still lovely, but everything else, especially the High Speed modes is so full of compression artefacts it's a nightmare, I had to shoot very soft for the ad. This was exported from DaVinci as Prores 444, then converted to h.264 in Premiere. No sharpening was added.

                      from David Kong Added 70.7K 2,227 134

                      If you work with video, it's vital to understand how codecs work and how they change your image. In this tutorial, I cover all of the big concepts behind codecs, breaking it down into understandable pieces. While the nitty-gritty of compression algorithms can get complicated, all of the main ideas are quite simple. Follow me on facebook.com/davidkongfilm for the latest updates. Here's an overview of the topics covered: - What a codec is - And how it differs from a container. - Different types of codecs - And why I frequently use 4 different codecs on a single project. - Bit Depth - What it means and why it matters. - Chroma Subsampling - 4:4:4, 4:2:2, and 4:2:0, and when it becomes an issue. - Spatial Compression and Blocking - One of the most common artefacts you see with normal work. - Temporal Compression - Long-GOP codecs, inter-frame compression, and ALL-I codecs. - Lossless vs. Lossy compression - How image compression differs from data compression. - Bit Rate - How to calculate bit rates and the differences between kbps/kBps/Mbps/MBps. - Raw - Briefly, the difference between Raw, compressed, and uncompressed video.
