Some miscellaneous FX1 screengrabs

It's been a while since I had any real web-hosting, but that's changed now and I'll be able to provide links for various FX1-shot content including pictures and the like. Some of these may be familiar as I've posted before, but the links are different.

Here is an album of a few FX1 frame grabs. Some may have a little bit of colour correction, all were shot 1080i:

All of the shots in this album were shot CF24:

http://phispace.net/spiffyprod/Eclipse/shot03.mov
http://phispace.net/spiffyprod/Eclipse/shot04.mov

Two quick (still photo) keying tests:

http://www.petridish.net/pics/23860/sword.jpg (shot 1080i)

And a visual effects example (shot CF30):

an uncropped, uncorrected frame:

and the final video:

A few miscellaneous shooting notes:
If you're planning on doing a lot of visual effects, shooting in the CF modes is a great way to cut down on the hassle of interlace and reduce compression artifacts. While people are usually informed to "shoot 60i" and "CF modes suck" - by the time you take into account the compression algorithm, you can often end up with better data from a CF30 image than you will from deinterlaced 1080i.

Awesome!

Wow.. very impressive I must say as an owner of an FX1. The blue lighting in your final project looked great!

Well done!

Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5.1
Cineform's AspectHD
Adobe After Effects 6.5 Professional.

I do most of my colour correction with the Curves filter in 16-bit mode.
