    I've used various programs for offloading in the past but none really made me feel any more secure than copying by hand.

    Might invest in Hedge at some point though. Looks great. Just been Netflix certified too.

      It is a bit of a hassle to go through Catalyst and stabilize every clip you need to correct but it works. That being said I would like to see a plug like the Insta360 have for their cameras that stabilize right inside Premiere. They both rely on the same basics with gyro data so it can be done.

        I use Hedge simply because of the verification which copying in the finder cannot do. Very simple to use.

          What's it like speedwise?

          Verification in the other programs I used to use made it unworkable because it slowed down transfers so much on productions. In the end was better to transfer back at home.

            I think.

            So it's all relative. And if you were at a different ISO cutting 2 stops with ND would not be the same as -6DB gain.

            I think.

            Or to put it more accurately - http://www.designimage.co.uk/convert...n-and-f-stops/
            6dB is an equivalent of doubling of signal strength. In case of video signal it means 1 stop difference. -6dB means halving the signal strength / -1 stop. So for example if 0dB is 800ISO then -6dB is half of that, 400ISO.


            Therefore this is false: "So ND 1/4 is cutting 2 stops. Essentially making base ISO 800/0Db the same exposure as ISO 200 or -6B.
            " It is -12dB.

              Sorry typo. Had already posted previously..

              There's a few ways of referring to ND strength.

              1/4 is 2 stops of ND or 0.6
              1/8 is 4 stops of ND or 1.2

              6db gain is a doubling of ISO so at base 800 0db +6db is 1600iso.

              A doubling of ISO is the equivalent to increasing light intake by 1 stop.

                @ben and broughton - thanks gents. 12dB makes sense to me.

                  Does anyone know what the difference is between HLG Live and HLG Natural? I can find no description of it in the manual or on the Web.

                    There are two HLG Looks that can be selected via the Paint settings in the HDR mode. The default “HLG Live” look is broadly aligned with Rec-709 so it gives a contrasty, dynamic-looking image that doesn’t need any further grading or post production whether viewed in HDR or SDR.

                    The “HLG Natural” look is more closely aligned with the BT.2100 HDR standard, so this looks a bit flat and dull on an SDR TV, but it looks great in HDR!

                        Catalyst is not my favorite software either, but it does have quite a few useful functions that aren't available anywhere else. I use it a few times a week for specific tasks.

                          Has anyone been able to get catalyst working on a Mac Pro 7,1? The program simply refuses to open since I upgraded my old pimped out 5,1.

                            It seems like catalyst may not have support for Big Sur yet. Could that be your issue?

                              I have Catalyst Browse 2020.1.0.594 on my MacBook Pro 2020, with BigSur 11.2.3. It's working fine
