F3 Before and After

Here is some footage showing footage shot in low light that has had heavy SFX applied to it. This was shot with a Zeiss CP lens using S-Log and recorded 10bit to a PIX240. The FX were done in After Effects. The YouTube compression isn't as good as the link showing the process.

Re: F3 Before and After

What did you find the advantage was of using the F3 for this project, over say a DSLR, or even a camera with a smaller sized sensor?

I actually OWN the F3. I also LOVE the S-Log. So why rent when you own?

From applying a lot of effects like this one to DSLR footage, I can say that the DSLR footage falls apart rather quickly if you push it around a bit. Get a lot of H264 chunking that can build up rather quickly if you dont pay attention to your details. Keying works, but with 4:2:2 it is a LOT easier to get a read on the color you want to pick out when dropping a chroma key on it. You can always resort to manually masking but thats usually no fun and time consuming.

Got the chance to do some shot correction on some shots done in 4:2:2 recently (removing tripod bags from ledges, mics from within moving scenes, etc) and it held up rather well, but for basic stuff like that DSLR should be about the same.
