I was teased.

The colors and composition looked great to me.

I have no idea what the project is about, but it looked nice.

The time lapse was created in Final Cut Pro. I manipulated the speed of the clip. No presets used. CC in After Effects.

I'm assuming this is synched with the studio track. The drums seem off or something. It looks great though. What Magic bullet settings did you use?

The colors look great. Was that a MB preset of did you come up with the settings on your own?

My 3 cents worth of:

1. there was very little video of the lead vocalist singing. Very unusual for a music video.

2. I felt somewhat dizzy after watching the clip. In my opinion there was a bit too much camera movement.

3. I don't know if the "sweat-stained-armpit-shot" was the most flattering for the band but it put a smile on my face.


Overall, very nice job. I enjoyed watching the clip.

Train Approaching

Just got my XHA1. Shot a couple of things today. Kinda overcast here in Western PA, so the shots aren't as colorful as they could have been.

Here's one of them:

What system are you editing on? I could see you boosting the saturation a bit and crushing the blacks to get some more color out of this footage.

Bboy Cypher Battle in HD

Just uploaded it so it may be a few minutes. Shot in 1080i60 HDV @ 1/30 shutter. Using a Canon XH-A1. First time importing into prores with these new settings I found. Worked out great. Able to edit and view in real time. Haven't done much HD editing and this workflow made things VERY easy to manage.

Thanks for watching :)

Horrible clip...but need some things answered.

YouTube - MJD Talk

Sorry, for the horrible editing (it was done in 20 mins in FCP, and I laugh at the music loop myself) and I am sorry for the language.

Basically I had just gotten the A1 during the time of this shot and as wondering why it looks so god damned awful? It was on full auto mode but still this looks worse than a lot of footage from much cheaper cameras.

I havent got a chance to test my camera out with new presets and taking more control of the settings, but would like to ask anyone out there...why do you think it came out that bad?

slomo...but not so good

This was shot at 30p and frame rate of 60, slowed down to 66% using just FCP. I guess I need to shoot a higher frame rate? This was a ballet rehearsal for upcoming Nutcracker performance...

What do you mean "30P and frame rate of 60"? If it's 30P then frame rate is 30. Generally it's best to shoot 60i and de-interlace. BUT having said that, the clip looks pretty good to me, what are you seeing that's wrong with it?

Dear Jeff,

Did you use 30p with a shutter speed of 60 (1/60th of a second)?

If yes, then you could help your slow-mo by using a shutter speed of 120 (1/120th of a second) if you have enough light.

I agree with Steve, I would recommend shooting 1080i60 if you know you are going to use slow-mo, or just want to keep your options open.

Thanks, guys. Yes, I meant shutter speed of 1/60th. The ghosting or motion blur doesn't look too great to me. I'll try raising the shutter speed and maybe 60i. Thanks again.
