    They kept it very quiet, but I have been told that Red and Sony quietly settled their lawsuits against each other and allowed each company to use the other's IP in certain areas. Bear in mind this is...

    I believe the current minimum union low-budget feature rates for a Local 600 DP are around $900-$1000 a day, and a first assistant AC is around half that ($450/day). You can gauge indie rates as a...

    This guy just popped up on the BMD Support Forum and is apparently editing a massive documentary completely in Resolve, and he had some thoughts on the process:

    Actually, I think film was the opposite: negative was usually pretty kind to the highlights if you over-exposed a little bit, like 2/3 stop or 1 full stop. We often told people shooting for TV to do...

    I think this makes sense. It is true that the better color charts are delicate.

    I would caution anybody that the X-Rite charts are not accurate for chroma values, but they're not that far off for...

    I would beg to differ. 8K R3D's are still a problem with a lot of systems, particularly in real-time with a lot of nodes (particularly any NR).

    We generally will conform all the original 8K R3Ds...

    It's bullshit. Just use a full-size color chart at the beginning of the scene. The color checker on the slate is ignored, because it's almost always not in the position of the actors. Typically in...

    One way would be to create a vignette in the TIMELINE node window instead of the regular node window. That would stay locked regardless of where the image moved.

    You momentarily connect the SB-T to the 788t timecode out, and it will automatically jam to the input signal. The Ambient TCO generator in the 788 is stable enough that it'll stay constant for at...

    If they figured out a way to cram 400 hours of doco footage into Resolve for The River and the Wall, I am extremely impressed.

    I have it on good authority it will be able to speed up other camera formats, too, before the end of the year. Possibly at product launch.

    For that, you would need four SB-T's plus a master timecode generator from which to jam them. Denecke makes them, but you could really jam from anything, including a sound recorder provided it has a...
