I've had great success with a cinematize Pro, which released an hd version that also pulls from Bluray. Love that you can fine tune in out points and choose a variety of output formats and levels of q
Interference issues with monitors

Great suggestion regarding running off battery (of course the speaker is behaving itself right now...) Thanks! That will at least clear up if it's electrical or interference from another source

Re: Considering buying a used Rifa 55
by Jonathan Frank 7 years ago
Ha! Yeah, the pricing on these suckers is interesting.. The 30 is $210 The 40 is $173 The 50 is $151 I guess it makes sense...the 30 has more cells (and blocks more light - and 'focuses' it to a tight

Re: Which Boris is right for me (and FX template question)
by Jonathan Frank 14 years ago
