Very nicely done. May I ask what that was? Seemed very surreal.

It is nice footage. Cool white ninjas, too, heh heh. How much light was actually used on the set? It's a pretty low key style of lighting, but still looks like quite a lot of studio equipment was utilized, which is something I won't be able to do. Imran, how about some frame grabs from your footage?

Well both the things I shot that I was referring to were for other folks, not myself. However, while I don't have that footage, I can probably dish up the tape that I had of the random test footage I took using a few varying settings.

I'll post back as soon as I find it.

Imran,

Can you post the settings you used on your night shoot? Sounds like they might be a good starting point for some tests.

Nice. Really impressive how the camera recorded the 4th frame. All of them look better than I thought they would after what I heard about the camera's iffy performance in 24p at night. Do you have any night shots like the first frame only with about 1/4 the number of lights? That'd be pretty close to the typical light levels where I'll be shooting.

Another thing I'm curious about. I assume you white balanced in all four examples? The various types of light don't seem that different from what a human eye would see. I was also surprised that the car headlights had a distinct blue cast when I was expecting a warmer look from them, unless, of course, they all had Xenon bulbs. Frames 1 and 3 seem to be the same location, but that big radioactive looking building (or whatever it is) is green in one frame and blue in the other! Was that a result of your settings or variable lights on the background object?

Thanks for posting the frame grabs, Yang. I already have a much better sense of how the camera will behave at night in 24p.

Those colored buildings look like those things from Ken Tanaka's Photos... The crazy cool video 'sculptures' in Chicago's Millennium Park.

I forgot what white balance i used on each shot. The lights definitely weren't that blue.

It would appear you're correct, Imran. The sign in one of Yang's pictures says Grant Park, which it turns out was expanded to accomodate Millenium Park. Now I know what that weird "building" really was. I can sleep better not having to ponder that anymore....


Anyone have some twilight 24p stuff? I'd sure like to see what the possibilities are of using the 100A to generate evening-for-night footage with available light only.

You did the right thing shooting 24pa if you want to record out to 35mm film. It's going to be very expensive to do so, in the tens of thousands of dollars. It can look very good if the film out is done well. Once it is filmed out it will stand up better being projected on large screens. You do need to re-edit in 24fps to have accurate cuts.

If you stay in the video realm you should bump up to Digibeta for projection. I wouldn't project from a DVD. You could even try uprezzing to HD but IMO, that is a hit-and-miss proposition. Some scenes just won't look good.

Transfer depends on the film chain quality you want. For a 90 minute video to film tranfer it can be as much as $50,000.00 as long as you stay with one of the smaller labs in New York, Atlanta, etc. that specialize in this type of service.

24p edit ?

If I've read it right. the DVX100a records 24fps on to a tape at 60fps so you can edit it. If that is true do you thing it would work with FCX or FCX2. No funds yet for the pro.

Any editing program can edit the footage as 60i footage. It'll still look like 24P, but you'd be editing the 60i footage as recorded to tape.

If you want to edit on the raw 24P data, you'd need a program like FCP HD or Vegas, something that knows about the 24P sequence and can extract it from the 60i footage.
