I think that's it.
Steven, very very beautiful! I'm a newbee on the A1, just got one one week ago. This is very inspiring!
Did you 'publish' the latest VIVIDRGB data in April or are there more recent settings for VIVIDRGB?

Best regards, Robert

I believe the April one is the most current VIVIDRGB

Beautiful, artistic, moving! (as usual)

So let me understand, this indislider thing is a 36" track that goes on your tripod and allows you to basically do a 3-foot dolly move by pushing the camera along the track? I'm not totally clear on what this is and how it works, and the description on their site sort of assumed you already knew.

Just curious... how does the Bogen adapter work? Does it help, is it necessary?

It's a kind of laborious process.

I export a flattened Cineform AVI from the Premiere Pro CS3 timeline. I then bring it into Vegas 7 and export it as a WMV at 1440 x 1080, 25mbps. After that, import it into Sorenson Squeeze and export as a Quicktime file (you can get the exact specs by looking at the movie info inside the Quicktime file itself)
Steven

Have you tried Procoder (v3)?

thats seems to do all formats and does a great job. should be able to go from CS3 to Procoder to quicktime, but in saying that I haven't tried it as I dont have PPCS3. Give it a test they got a trial version.

The reason why I don't just import the Cineform file directly into Sorenson is that it crashes if I do that. Vegas does a much better job at creating a high quality WMV because with Premiere, you are limited to 10mbps

I'm sorry Steven but I can't seem to figure out how to "look at the movie info inside the Quicktime file itself." Can you type the info out or briefly explain how I would go about looking at the movie info?

Much thanks.

great footage, thanks for sharing! I am getting my tripod next week, and some other piece of equipment in February, maybe a GlideCam! This is the first I have heard of the slide, very interesting and even affordable (compared to other nice equipment).

Did you have the slide on the ground for the shots towards the end?

Beautiful work - thanks for posting.

Regarding your workflow; have you tried DebugmodeFrameserving directly from Premiere to Sorenson? Seems easier.

Steven -- any way you could post a shot of what your camera looks like when set up with this rig? Thanks.

Steven, Hi

Great images here, my favorites are from just above the ground level.
couple of shots look a little dark, wanted to ask your setup on Letus,
can you shoot with open Iris, what is your focusing distance on camera?

Regards, Oleg.

Sorry I can't answer all of your questions right now, I'm really busy. I'll try to get to them in the next few days.

Thanks,

Steven
