    I think this highlights how much the Hollywood film industry has come to rely on this sort of VFX work, for high end films anyway. I hope these guys were paid properly for this film, unlike some...

    Reading this site (and others) sometimes it might be thought that the only way to go is HD, or 4K! A lot of broadcast media places still use SD cameras. The reason for this is that to change the...

    Ah, very true. I have a friend who simply refuses to watch any subtitled film. I don't consider him to be a 'philistine' or anything; he does have good taste in film. Despite this, and my repeated...

    Like music, a film is always going to be of its time and will reflect culture and issues around the time it was made. A true classic transcends all that, usually because they contain strong...

    :) I'd call it more of a learning cliff!

    But Lightworks is cool. And now on Linux too!

    I think the 'Creative CLoud' idea is a good one, both for Adobe (who will generate extra revenue) and for users, many of whoom could not afford the $2600 up front cost. However, subscription may not...

    This has been happening in the games industry for a few years now. The move to cloud based services is really driven by piracy. Moving to a subscription based service does a number of things for...

    Your composition is very nice indeed. Get that flickering smoothed out and they will be great.

    I can see a use for this: multi camera shooting. Let's take the surfer example. He might only catch that wave once but you need a LS and a MCU. You could set this thing to get the wide shot, and...

    You are so right Paul. Recording good sound on location is one of the most important yet most often neglected aspects. I was hired for a shoot a few months back (as lighting camera). On set it...

    Thanks Josh, I'm based in the UK, (Scotland). I'd be more than happy to put these units through their paces in some real world situations, keep me in mind! ;)

    This is quite right. CS5 or above would be better for native H264 playback. If this is not possible, transcode your files to something CS4 will play nicely with. Some sort of AVI would be best. ...

    My setup is a bit, er, rustic, so I don't intend to market it at all, I just made it to satisfy my own needs, but I guess you will have a good sized market out there looking for this sort of thing. ...

    I think you'd have to ask the photographers who took the pictures. None of the images really show any telltale signs of being shot with a particular lens (straight line distortion, distance...

    This sounds interesting! I have recently built my own power solution for my DSLR using a Gold Mount battery plate and a small DC-DC voltage conversion circuit. The thing that has really piqued my...

    Also their looks should change. The witness should be a little drawn, tense. Perhaps the cop has had a haircut, or grown a beard or something. Don't forget the power of lighting and colouring. ...

    I should have been more specific. The issue is not exactly with DSLRs, rather with the H264 compression. The reason that the blacks are uglier than lighter areas of the frame are because they have...

    As Samuel and Joe have both mentioned, the issue is less to do with ISO and more to do with portions of the frame that are underexposed, or close to the noise floor. That is the tricky thing when...

    If this is for a preview monitor, what about hooking the laptop up to the tv? You could even use the tv as the main editing workspace, and your laptop screen as the preview monitor.
