Hey jaser, ramping was done in FCP, pretty simple process, not at all like the Arri but it will do. Minor color correction as well, just a hint of greens and blues here and there, crushing the blacks about 2%.

Color correction

I watched the footage you had on your site, and I'm really impressed. Probably what'll convince me to buy this cam. Specially liked being able to see the before and after color correction on the coins slo mo.

Do you do your CC w/ Final Cut 5?

I haven't done a whole lot of color correction w/ final cut, mostly After Effects, so this might be a novice question, how do you crush the blacks in FCP?

Thanks Michael, first of all i think your doing the right thing, After Effects has a lot more color correction tools.. unless you get plug-ins for FCP.

In FCP you just throw on a 3 way color corrector and bring the slider down on the left, it's pretty easy. Not a lot of finessing but it will do. AE is much much more to offer though...

yeah, on the production i'm working on now, we're just about to get to CCing and the other editors keep asking me why AE and not just FCP, and I normally tell them that if you CC w/ AE you'll prefer it a lot more. Whew, that sentence had way to many abbreviations in it....

Just wondering if there was something i was missing. I like doing rough CC w/ Final Cut, but then do the actual work in AE

Great footage though, I can't wait to mess around w/ one of these cameras, almost makes me want to write a snow storm into the next film. Dont really get a lot of those in SF though...

Amazing stuff! Really... motivating, which I am sure you are happy about as it fits with your company's name. When I first played it, I had the sound on mute and thought how perfect it would be with some "provocative" style up-beat music, it was just so ironic and perfect when I realised there was sound!... A very filmic scene, I thought could have been lifted straight out of a movie!

This is the best HVX footage I have seen so far. I can't believe the bad press I'm hearing about this cam.

Yea, Tim.. As I read some of the bad press this camera has received, there is a part of it I agree with, and a part of me that just says, "Who cares!" What I am able to do now is amazing! So while everyone is crapping on it, I will be shooting with it and learning about what I CAN do with it...

The first couple of secs looks very very great, but at about 30/40 percent of the movie it stops downloading.. Or is it me?

Excellent footage. Everytime I am turning toward another camcorder, you all post some new footage that makes me favor the HVX200. What was the music you used on your clip? It went perfectly with your footage.

Great! Glad to be an influence... the music was from Ian Brown... "Music from the spheres"
