I've tried that already. After instagram compresses it it looks horrible. ProRes is the way to go, just need the settings for iphone.
Speeding up footage in post, how to get it silky smooth? It's a bit jerky : /

HD ProRes 422 29.97 in FCP7. Trying to speed it up 150%. I tried it in Kronos in AE and it looks bad Tried sending it to Motion and using optical flow and it looks bad Tried changing clips speed in FC

Guys Kronos is the same thing as Twixter just arguably higher quality. I tried that already. Like I said, I tried optical already as well. I feel like both are great at slowmo but not 1.5 or x2 speed.
ProRes in fcp7 converted to H264 via Compressor magically changes edit points
by Johnny Smith 6 months ago
Somehow the conversion extends clips by a few frames. Can't solve this puzzle. In other words: I'm cutting director's reel. I got a bunch of edited clips with no handles one after the other. Sequence

So I had a SanDisk inserted via USB into Mac Pro. Ejected it. Replaced the disc with a new one containing new photos. The finder keeps showing old photos from the ejected disk. If I click on any of th

OMG are you kidding me. Just checked the SD in another mac and in camera and none of the photos show up. Just wrapped a big photoshoot so upset right now. Somebody please tell me there's a way to retr
Another 23.98 / 29.97 nightmare : )
by Johnny Smith 2 years ago
So my offline from the red footage is 1080p 23.98. Somehow the sequence I cut the show in ended up being 720p 29.97. It looks fine but I need to send out a reference video with the correct frame rate

Nevermind you guys. I recut it by hand already using the "F" command. Thank God this was a music video and not a feature.
million dollar question ( music vid sync issue )
by Johnny Smith 2 years ago
So a PA accidentally played back the track on set at the wrong tempo for a bunch of shots. Instead of the correct 125 bpm the actors moved their lips to the track playing at 120 bpm. In other words th

by Daniel Caine 2 years ago
hmm... at this point, it's likely that even though you may speed it up you will still find sync issues throughout the video. I'd keep an eye on it, and at the risk of corrupting the video, it may be b
Another 4k Red footage workflow question.

Hey fam, Just directed a low budget music video shot in 4K on a Red Epic ( dragon ). What I got today: 285gb of R3D files. I'm working with an older 3,1 MacPro tower ( not book ) that's been recently

Thanks David, although like I said I'm still using FCP7 and 10.6.8 and am not willing to upgrade. Thanks anyway, it makes sense, I'll stay in 4K till the very end.
just bought a 5d mark III - was that a mistake ?
by Johnny Smith 4 years ago
So years ago I was shooting music videos with a 5d mark II. Then it got stolen. So when I got hired to shoot a few music videos last week- without doing any research I picked up a new 5d mk3 from crai

Wait, what's wrong with Blackmagic Production Camera 4K or the URSA 4K The footage looks amazing ! Still trying to find a video test of Mark 3 vs blackmagic.

Quicktime is a gigantic brand After Effects is an iconic brand Importing a file is the most basic thing ever. How come, when I import a quicktime file into AE it freezes I will be spending the next ho

removing and moving an eye ??

I have a rough idea of how to do this but was hoping to score a step by step plan. End result should look like the person has skin instead of eyes ( no eyes ), and I need to move the right eye and pla

Sorry Pierre, for some reason I don't understand what you mean by "in our product RE:Fill there is RE:Fill area". Do you mean your company sells a plugin that could help with this

Really scratching my head here. Roto brushed a clip, pre-rendered to ProRes 444. ( Alpha straight settings ). In AE the rendered clip looks identical to the original footage ( foreground and backgroun

This does sound like a solution BUT there is no MediaCoreQTCodecRulesCS5.xml file on my system. I might have already followed those instructions a year ago when I experienced the same issue. Not sure.

fixing fast shutter effect in post ?
by Johnny Smith 7 years ago
shot very fast movement with 5d mark ii @ 30fps, f22, kept the shutter at 1 60 but the footage came out really choppy looking. I should have shot it at 1 30. Is there a way to smooth it out in post I'

it's hard to believe sony vegas can do something FCP can't. "frame interpolation to double or quadruple the frame rate, then interlace the frames" does not make sense to me but i'll try it to see if i
