View Full Version : Test footage for different settings
02-11-2006, 08:07 PM
Here is a somewhat controlled test of 3 combinations of settings in scene file 5 cine-v.
Here is the three side by side clockwise from the upper left
First is the factory setting, then Barry's recommendation and then another combo. I tried to include different types of color and textures.
Before i give my opinion i would like to hear others (come on throw me a bone - I spent the time :) )
One of the MXF files can be found in this thread

all look pretty darn good. the third one seemed to have some weirdness when the tracking begins. I can't see much difference between the 3 really.
Thanks for taking the time. Whelse else have you shot?

If you look at the same part of the shot from the different takes you will see a definite difference -
Mxf files - I suppose you want one just to play with? I will post one on my server and put a link here in a bit - its about 60 megs - hopefully having this well help others figure out better ways to edit - its a pain with avid at this point
ill post when its up

I havent shot much else yet - just some test shots - working on getting an overcranked one up.
I will be shooting lots of tests over the next week in prep for a film out test we will be doing - i will try to post them as I have them (especially if someone comes up with a great way to edit them :))

I'll give it another look...would be cool to possibly split screen them to really see the difference.
Glad more people are shooting and posting.

How do you like the camera? What do you think about the image? Thanks for the tests!
02-11-2006, 09:16 PM
overall I LOVE the camera and the image.
Couple of negatives - it is definitely bleeding edge - I have had to work through lots of downloading and editing issues. There is quite a bit of noise but as I have been working with it I am getting that under control.
BUT - now the awesomes. HD has so much clarity compared to SD - I didnt realize until I scrutinized my own footage. There are enough settings on the camera to find the "one you like". frames rates are beautiful - P2 cards are magical (and will be even more so when the edit issues are worked out)
as with any tool you need to spend time understanding what it can and cant do - thats what I am doing now. But I am fully comfortable with my investment.

I also posted a 3 way side by side of all the clips

Did anyone notice the artifacting in the video? In all three passes the "M" on "CREMES" exhibits some wierd compression flicker.
Is this just a result of the reincoding or is it in the actual footage also?

FatBird - i think that is just compression flicker - its not in the original file - mind you that one is over a gig.
