    I was shocked to find out that Dalsa owned quite a few patents, and every Bayered CMOS camera out there pays them X dollars as a license fee. I'm not sure when their patent expires or if it can be...

    I think it would be trivial for BMD to support ProRes Raw in Resolve if they really wanted to do it. What does it read now? 65 different file formats? Something like that. My guess (totally...

    It's a creative choice, like anything else. There are philosophical differences where some clients want the entire picture to look like it's "HDR" (i.e., much brighter). What Dolby tells you to do...

    That's correct: a complaint about a patent is not a lawsuit "against Red" per se. But if Apple invalidates the patent, then the end result will be just as devastating.

    I've said for years, "Apple...

    It's the entire film. It would fail QC if we just did it every so often. Color doesn't change so much as peak whites and overall contrast. Dolby provides Trim Nodes that allow tweaking just specific...

    What are you actually trying to deliver for? The biggest problem with an HDR or Dolby Vision workflow is the monitoring. Whether you go Nucoda or Resolve or Baselight, the display is what kills you....

    The people and support at Baselight are second to none, and Peter Postma and Sebastian Rasfeld are first-class in their knowledge of color science and the post business. They're also gentlemen and...

    To my knowledge, the only article out there that compares and contrasts different color correction systems was the one written by Mike Most back in 2010:

    Yes, absolutely. Alert the media: Mr. Most and I are in complete agreement. I don't have hard numbers on how many Resolves existed worldwide before 2009, but I would bet it was under 100 (maybe under...

    Re-read what I said: daVinci Systems was doing fine; their parent corporation (JDS/Acterna) went bankrupt. Huge difference.


    I never said I was. I've actually pieced together the same story from...

    I think it's no coincidence that Panasonic had to cut the price of its $20,000 Varicam LT to $9995 in the last few months. I thought it was an OK camera for $20K -- for $10K, it's exceptionally good....

    We had a patented trade secret at avoiding the optical flare on the left side at Technicolor, but they will kill me if I reveal it. In truth I really, really hate working with print film in scanning....

    You are mistaken. The timeline has to be in the delivery resolution or you risk visual artifacts from unnecessary scaling. This is covered in the manual, but it's presented in an ambiguous way and...

    From the massive grain and the flare on the left side (which I suspect is from an optical soundtrack), I think this was scanned by a fan not having access to the original negative or Sony's rights to...

    I once was on a crew for a series of interviews shot at the ASC clubhouse a few years ago, and I was floored by the very simple lighting approach they used for the sitdown conversations: a 2K with a...

    Yes, there's a similar way to do that in Resolve and Lustre as well (and for all I know, Lustre and Scratch, too). Things like that do happen sometimes, and I see it when a sensor or a film scan gets...

    I think you're much better off shooting in 4K (or whatever the native resolution of the camera is) and then downrezing to HD for the offline edit. You can choose to use the ProRes files for the final...
