    • At the playground | Reality


      from Martin Wallgren Added 11.4K 118 23

      Miniature scenes from the ocean, Gothenburg city and Strömstad all on the Swedish west coast. All edits and post processing done on a wee MacBook Pro 13". Most of the scenes with zoom and pan are output as 3K (3072 x 1728) high-res intermediate videos downsampled in iMovie by the simple Ken Burns crop tool. I shot around 10.000 RAW-images for the film but not all of them ended up in the final editing. I used a homemade rapid interval timer for some of the scenes, shooting continous up to 3 frames/sec for smooth motion. Footage stabilization and deflickering managed in VirtualDub with the Deflicker and Deshaker plugins. For the tilt-shift effect I used Alien Skin Software's plugin 'Bokeh' in Photoshop, some of the scenes were processed with their latest plugin 'Exposure 3' for filmic looks in classic Technicolor. Let me just say it took ages to develop and render thousands of high-res frames... Equipment used: Nikon D300 / D300s, Nikkor AF-S 70-200/2.8 VR, Nikkor AF-S 17-55/2.8, Nikon TC-17EII Teleconverter, DIY Nikon 10-pin Rapid Interval Timer (RIT), Manfrotto 035 SuperClamp w/ ball head 488RC2, Manfrotto 745B video tripod.

      • Theo - My first 5d mark II video editing experience


        from Marius Barbulescu Added 6,767 75 48

        This is my son, Theo. He was 1 year to 1 year and 3 months in this clip. When I first got my 5d mark II, the first thing I did was shoot video with it. I was so impressed! I am a photographer, but I love "the picture" and I love cinematography. Until now, I knew I would never afford to buy a good image quality video camera, and when I saw this camera... WOW! Blew me away! This clip was shot entirely handheld, mostly with a Canon 50mm 1.4 and a Canon EF 17-40 f4 L. I never thought I would ever have time to edit what I was shooting. All was done on a 13 inch dell xps with core 2 duo t8100 and just 2 GB of RAM. With Vegas it works like a charm. This is my first clip. Don't shoot me. :) I've used mostly trials to get this. So here is what I've used: Converted to Cineform HD with Neoscene Sony Vegas - editing and minor contrast and color correction After Effects and Twixtor for the first 10 seconds Magic Bullet Looks for 40-50% of the clip The Foundry Rolling Shutter - to remove that ugly gel effect Deshaker - Virtual Dub - for some of the static scenes to remove camera shake Music: Fleet Foxes - White Winter Hymnal Any comments and suggestions are more then welcome. I'm a begginer in this. Thanks! :)

        • Toronto Sunrise Timelapse


          from Robert Fisher Added 6,136 50 18

          Sunrise over the Toronto skyline. Source images loaded into PS CS5 @ 24fps. Bracketed sequences merged and tonemapped in Photomatix. Deshaker filter run in virtualdub to help reduce shake caused by wind buffeting tripod. Bracketing was 5 frames every 12 seconds 1 stop apart. Camera was a Nikon D700 in Av shooting Small Fine JPEG. Lens was Nikon 28-70 f2.8 @ 34mm & f8. Cropped tonemapped images and made final post-tonemap tweaks in LR then exported as a sequence for importing into PS CS5. Rendered as AVI with no compression out of CS5. Opened in virtualdub, applied Deshaker filter to reduce wind shake then rendered as AVI with the Sony YUV Codec in Sony Vegas. I kind of dig that I got lucky with the strong cloud movement in both this and the sunset piece, http://www.vimeo.com/12754213 and that the clouds were moving in such strongly different directions.

            This is basically a finished compilation of "Gothenburg timelapse project" with take 1 and 2 mixed together. First scenes shot while HMS Kent British warship visited the city harbour. Most of the parts were shot from Älvsborgsbron bridge in Gothenburg using a Manfrotto 035 SuperClamp and ball head attached to the bannisters. Nikon D300/D300s with Nikkor 70-200/2.8 VR and 17-55/2.8 lenses. Some of the panning was done during the captures and the rest in post processing. All editing on a MacBook Pro 13". For the tilt-shift effect and film stock simulation, I used Alien Skin's plugin 'Bokeh' and 'Exposure 3' in Photoshop.

                  • A Short Deshaker Demonstration on 5D Mark II material


                    from Borek Lupomesky Added 2,224 17 3

                    This short video demonstrates output from Gunnar Thalin's Deshaker plug-in for VirtualDub. Deshaker is fairly sophisticated yet free deshaking and motion smoothing software, capable of almost steadicam-like results. The video here was shot with 5D Mark II and Carl Zeiss Distagon 35/2.8 lens. Note, that while Deshaker is good at smoothing motion, it doesn't do very good job about rolling shutter artifacts, so you still have to be quite careful with your 5D.

                      from Louis du Mont Added 3,488 14 9

                      The first clip is the original footage the second is with the rolling shutter and jigger removed with VirtualDub and DeShaker plugin. http://www.virtualdub.org/ http://www.guthspot.se/video/deshaker.htm This is the straight output and I wasn't really trying to get it smooth when recording and I'd need to crop in a little to remove the black borders popping. Thought it might be interesting to see it in action. Details: http://www.cinema5d.com/forum/showthread.php?t=84889&highlight=lock+stock
