    Can't you just take the 4K files and bring them into an HD timeline and cut that way? You can independently monitor in HD from a 4K session in Resolve, but I'm honestly not sure about Premiere.

    There are advantages to using a proxy/transcode workflow. That way, you're using light-duty files, relatively small drives, and you can get away with older computers and not a lot of power just...

    There are many in-depth discussions on post sound editing and post sound mixing over on the Gearslutz Audio Forum's Post section:

    Yeah, that is an annoyance. Live Save is the new version of a similar feature, and that will solve the problem 99% of the time. What I do is, I use Live Save and then, if I take an extended break...

    Well, they did contribute 10 million ventilator masks to charity, so there is that.

    We generally use RWG-RGB and Log3G10 in the project setup, and then we have several Powergrades (in lieu of LUTs) to get to a reasonable starting point. We also drag along a copy of the client's...

    I hate to overpromise and underdeliver.

    Often, when confronted with something this bad from a paying client, all we can do is wince and say, "well, I can make it different." But unsalvageable is...

    Deakins did a terrific interview a few weeks before this talking about how much he liked the Arri Alexa LF Mini, and also his specific reasons for choosing Arri Signature Primes. He has an...

    And Bobby for the win! Glad that Mr. Deakins took home another statue.

    I don't think that's exactly true. If you watch the June 3 video presentation on the Mac Pro, Blackmagic is very much a participant in the demo and Apple specifically sites Resolve and the actually...

    Actually, if you watch last year's NAB speech by Grant Petty, he says they felt it was "more efficient" (which I think means "more cost-effective") just to develop their own codec instead of paying...

    I think the wrinkle from Blackmagic is that their BM Raw codec is partially debayered, so that was one way they were able to avoid infringing the Red patents. I think if they had violated them, there...

    Another thing that helps is to use really powerful hardware. BMD has their Recommended Configuration guide on their support site, and if you follow those rules, you can put together a system that...

    Tiffen Glimmer Glass can create some really amazing looks. I've often told clients, "this is a look that would be hard to do in post." You basically have to shoot it that way.

    No, there are reasons for using NR on occasion. I don't generally do it, but I'll apply it on occasion if there was an issue on set. Sometimes I'll use NR on Blue-channel only, which tends to get...

    I dunno. There's "a unique look," and then there's skug-ugly. I can turn three knobs in Resolve and get an equally-ugly look. I just don't think "creative LUTs" are useful used this way.

    Am I crazy, or do these pictures look ugly? (Asking for a friend.)

    You can do all this stuff in a color-correction program, you know. No need to use a LUT at all -- but I have no issue with a...

    I think this is extremely good advice. Look at it this way: on a highly-mobile documentary, you need somebody to carry spare batteries, help wrap up lighting cables, swap out used camera SSDs, and...

    We did a ballpark comparison between a $15,000 2019 Mac Pro workstation and a comparable HP z8 Windows workstation last week, and the Mac was about $3000 more expensive (even more for the rackmount)....
