Finally found this BTS shot of us filming the pocahontas girl at EDC. 50mm Master Prime. I kinda wish I would have run and got the slider for this shot, now that I think about it.
Tom, it's all so beautiful and inspiring, can't wait to see the final piece !
Tom, first, amazing stuff, watched the high resolution trailer and it's just awesome. Second, I've always wanted to do timelapses together with dolly/pan shots, but I haven't had any luck finding good equipment for slow tracking, any tip on what to get?
Got a 7D at the moment, but if I would want to do slomo-shots I'm gonna rent an Epic, so something that holds both weights.
Not trying to answer for Tom but one of Tom's sponsors is Kessler Crane.... http://www.kesslercrane.com/
They make high quality, durable and load bearing grip gear... sliders, dollies, tripods, motion control... everything you need. They are about to release a brand new motion control system around NAB. I've been anxious to hear about Tom's beta testing of it.
Short answer... buy from Kessler and you won't be disappointed.
Tom, I had my own question. Looking at your Vimeo video about editing in Premiere...
Do you have a Red Rocket or is not really necessary with the Mercury engine inside Premiere?
I generally use a Mac, but may buy a PC workstation if it means I don't need a Red Rocket.
Do you find there are any problems using RedCineX on Windows rather than PC?
Is the full RAW editing available within Premiere. I imagine that if the answer is yes, they are still behind in terms of implementing Alchemy or HDRx stuff? What is your experience there?
Thanks for your time.
as far as i know he doesn't have a rocket, and premiere does handle the epic r3d files, but i don't believe alchemy or hdr are enabled... yet
I don't have a rocket. I'm sure it would help.
As far as I can tell, I cannot use Alchemy in Premiere right now. I really, really want it, though! Alchemy is AMAZING. I used it for the Big Sur coastal shot, and it blew away what I was able to do in Premiere.
So to be clear, for the Big Sur shot, you did some Alchemy adjustments in Redcine first, then brought that footage into Premiere?
I don't have Premiere 5.5 yet, but is that a typical workflow? Do some adjustments in Redcine first, then do more and finish in Premiere? Does that require some sort of Export from Redcine or ???
Yes, I used Alchemy in RCX Pro, but I had to export 4K DPX out of RCX Pro, then import 4K DPX into Premiere. I am going to talk to Adobe today and see what is going on with Alchemy support in Premiere. It's very important, IMO. Also, it would be nice to have EXR support in Premiere. It didn't seem to work when I tried to import EXR into Premiere.
