1. $2.50 Follow Focus Assist Solution!! Cheap Awesomeness!!


    from Tony Carretti Added 77.6K 584 107

    I've been trying to justify spending the money on a follow focus system, but considering that I would have to invest in the system itself, rails and what not, I've been trying to come up with a more affordable solution for the meantime... Well, last night while in Bed, Bath & Beyond (shopping for a gift for my mom...) I happened across these little gems for .... (wait for it....) !! $2.50 !! http://www.trudeaucorp.com/us/products/kitchen-tools-gadgets/p--0999025.html They are: Cheap Light Sturdy Washable ( you never know....) Variety of colors and did I mention cheap? This fits all my lenses from my 20mm pancake to my Tamron 17-50 VC which is pretty darned thick! The movement is silky smooth and the consistency of the rubber creates a very nice ease in/ease out for the focus pull itself. Just thought I'd share.... Tony BTW, shot this on my Canon HFS100. Really comes in handy for quick stuff like this!

    • How to make a shoebox


      from Remyyy Added 18.5K 363 94

      Charlie asked me if I could do a "How to" video about the shoebox. So I tried. I'm not really good at this. Could be quite boring and maybe not really clear. So if you have questions, don't hesitate. My last use of the shoebox : http://www.vimeo.com/661213 Help me to see the world through a shoebox.

            • JAG35 Pro Depth of Field Adapter - First Impressions


              from Tom Guilmette Added 14.8K 116 39

              I really like the $400 JAG35 Pro depth of field adapter. I am testing it out on my Sony HDR-SR11 and the results speak for themselves. All of the audio was recorded off the SR11's camera mic while the JAG was vibrating! It is very quiet! Total cost of the the camera, adapter and lens: $1,200. Just goes to show that you do not need to spend thousands to shoot sick looking video. This adapter does have limitations and you should understand them all before you buy it. Please read my blog for detailed information about my first impressions. Link: http://www.tomguilmette.com/wp/my-blog/archives/1737 This is a great adapter for those of you who own the small HD cameras and want a cheap way to get the "film look" on video. This adapter will not replace Letus adapters. I am using a 5 micron ground glass and you can get more info on this adapter at http://www.jag35.com

                    • Cinema 4D Motion Capture


                      from Sam Welker Added 7,528 86 31

                      Tutorial on how I did this: https://vimeo.com/39998215 Second render can be found here: https://vimeo.com/39972056 This is my very first real test with motion capture. I used NI-mate and a kinect sensor I borrowed from a friend (will certainly buy my own next week). This Kinect works so well for only being $150. I really hope to get to try out IPISoft soon. This test uses mograph. I have set up a skeleton system but realistically just had spheres placed under null objects which had motion data keyframed onto them. By the way, motion is a little odd, but don't hate. If you're being motion captured you're going to act like a lunatic too because you deserve it! :) Would really love feedback!
