Kalani,

Is it encoded h.264? I get a pop-up message saying Quicktime can't play the clip and the required resources are not on the server.

Very pretty scenery that's for sure.

Nice footage!!

Do you guys have the newest quicktime? I believe that is all that will play video encoded with that codec.

Travis,

I'm not certain, but I think Q7 is still Mac only. Man I wish Quicktime and Windows Media Video would both go away in favor of platform neutral codecs.

Qt 7 H.264

QuickTime 7 Pro is now available to Windows users, so you can encode H.264 both with QuickTime or Windows Media 7 now.

Wow! The footage is awesome, nice job on the editing too... makes me want to go to Hawaii and start shooting... also makes me glad I just bought an XL2. A couple of crits would be that some of the colour saturation in just a few shots looked a bit much. Also, you might want to shorten your opening title just a bit, it kinda hangs... I use feature movies as a good gauge for how long a title should be on screen, and usually its no more than 3 seconds. I'd make your logo fade up and then the "presents" fade in below it, then fade to your title, just to speed things up a bit. Beautiful shots though, loved the aerial stuff too.. good work!

Great Job

Kalani,

Nice work. I really liked the color, pace and music. A few questions on that if you don't mind?

-Did you use any filters on your XL2?
-Do you use a matte box?
-What settings did you use on your XL2? (the setting you find when setting a preset up with things like gamma, cine, RGB's, etc.)
-What mode did you shoot in? (A, Tv, Av, M)
-Did you do any post-production altering to get such vibrant colors?

Thanks. By the way I showed a friend of mine who's going to Hawaii in August and I think he's going to show everyone he knows!

Hey Derek, thanks for the kind words.
Yes I used a PETROFF matte box with a 4x4 POLARIZER, tons of sun and glare out here.
Settings were pretty stock, I think I had the cine settings on and -5 mas ped.
I always shoot manual, and use a manual lens as well.
Yes I did a bit of SELECTIVE CC, I forget what plugin it is but it's really cool, you can simply sample any color you want to correct. Hope this helps. Aloha!
