24fps to match 23.98 footage?
by Nelson Goforth 7 years ago
I'm handling media for a project in which two Red cameras were used to shoot interviews. The project will be edited in Final Cut Pro. I am rendering the footage out in Davinci Resolve (light version).

Not in any good way. Because the drift was so slow, it took quite some time before the lack of sync was obvious. I finally split everything down to 5 or 10-minute segments and synced by hand. Ugh. The

by Nelson Goforth 7 years ago
I'm working on a very low-budget feature and am trying to deal with the grade. The film was shot on a Red One and a Scarlet. The Red One was set to 4.5k, the Scarlet to 4K 2:1, both framed for 2.35:1.

DOF is dependent upon sensor size, and the FS-100 has a larger sensor than the AF-100 (and about the same as a 7D or a Red), so for a given field-of-view, etc, etc. the FS-100 should yield a shallower
