Welcome Vincent, I am happy that you have seen the light ; )
Yes, loved your CreativeLIVE program.:-)
Sick Set-up! Congrats!
12:1 still looks great, and is 40% more space efficient than 8:1. Just sayin
Hey Vincent, sorry if I missed this post but you mind shedding some light on your accessories being used there? I cant seem to ID them. Cheers.
Sure Vincent, Here is a excerpt of a Red One test shoot I did about 4 years ago at 12:1 compression ratio. Lenses were Cooke S4s.
I haven't had time to go back to the original R3D to create a pristine distribution render, so there is some h264 artifacting. But there is a lot of detail in the scene and it holds up quite well. The original R3Ds look clean and very nice.
Here is a link to the video: http://www.embstudios.com/download_f...uence_h264.mov
Vincent, how do you like the Schneiders? I was "this close" to buying them but ended up going with Cooke Panchro/i's. I love my Schneider view camera lenses.
Vincent, my example above was at 12:1 but not a comparative test. As luck would have it, there is an FXPHD "Epic on Location" class being run now by Mike Seymore and Stu Maschewitz. On this week's video they captured a medium shot of a woman against a greenscreen at 3:1, 6:1, & 12:1. I don't want to post grabs as they are part of his course, but perhaps Mike would be willing to comment or post examples here?
To summarize what I saw, 6:1 and 12:1 at 5k on Epic are really quite acceptable even for basic VFX work. And for straight Doc work there really should be no hesitation to capture at 12:1.
