    I don't believe so. The Zebras only indicate luminance overexposure. Saturation at zero should be more than enough. And you can boost it a healthy amount in post before you get weird artifacting.

    If you're recording in camera, definitely don't shoot flat on the GH4. You'd be throwing away an already limited about of bandwidth for recording image information. The encoder is expecting a full...

    This film was gorgeously shot, and Joaquin's performance is amazing. I appreciated the films single minded focus, especially after the Avengers films with their nine thousand characters and...

    Here's an article from one of the actresses who worked with him. She disagrees with that assessment of Hitchcock, saying he was more involved with his actors, although in a very manipulative way. He...

    I'll also add that, when digital cinematography started to challenge film, cinematographers were obsessed with getting the film look, terrified the audience wouldn't accept anything with even a tinge...

    If I had to surmise why, as an armchair scientist, I'd say it probably has something to do with the way the brain processes images and movement. The brain tends to ignore and deprioritize areas of an...

    I saw Collateral projected on film, and then digitally, and noted it looked significantly less digital on film. Not sure why you're asking this though. Digital can look indistinguishable from film...

    No one should take anything as gospel. Even the gospels! But there is a lot of value in her book and it can get you thinking more deeply about your scenes and how you relate to actors. In my...

    Well the rolling shutter and crushed shadow detail crosses this one off my list. The E2 still looks great though, and the F6 and F8 are coming soon.

    Two things greatly improved my sleep. Reducing diary, especially heavy creams (used to put it in my coffee), stopped me waking up with heartburn in the middle of the night. And reducing my intake of...

    Yeah, I read about that one. I may go the other way because I'm a cheap bastard and get the $799 E2C.

    I've been looking at getting a new camera again, and I keep coming back to the Zcam. I love the look of most of the footage I'm seeing from users of this camera. With other cameras I usually have to...

    Yeah, sometimes things don't make sense. Other things to try, change the system frequency from whatever it's at (24hz to 59.94 or vice versa). If you're in AVCHD, switch to MOV recording. If all else...

  17. The predictive rotoscoping tools in After Effects are insane!

    These new tools are amazing and can fix the most challenging shot. Unreal. You almost don't need green screen anymore.

    Isn't that stuff worked out though before the writer starts? On a typical sitcom, in the writers room they hash out plots and beats, maybe come up with some gags, and then send the assigned writer...

    Definitely a valid approach for a sitcom, as they are mostly people talking in rooms anyway. The same room. Week after week. And maybe a feature comedy. I never wrote a funnier script than the one I...

    My issue with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood isn't pacing, it's the aimlessness of the narrative. There is nothing much at stake for nearly two thirds of the movie and the scenes don't build on each...

    I don't know why you're wishing me luck, I'm not involved. LOL. Maybe the easiest would be if the TV detects a 24p signal it automatically disables the motion smoothing.
