After reading about all the issues of people trying to edit HD on a PC, i'm at the point of wishing that i had started out on the MAC.....

Thus the frustrated fat guy..........Minus the glasses.

If you build a proper 8 core PC server you will have no problems, it's not a Mac - PC thing. The G5 Mac is a server not a desktop PC, compare apples with apples. The 5DMII codec is just plain s*** and hell to edit, I hate it. Remember the tools we use is only as effective as the operator.

Since this wedding was only shoot by 5D Mark II, I am interested to know how you overcome the audio problems with 5D Mark II.
Yep, audio was a big problem during the shoot since you can't monitor the audio feed coming in so what we did is we tested our the audio first before the ceremony by doing an actual recording using our Senns which are directly plugged into the sound system's mixer then previewed it in the 5D. I know it's risky but we also planned a backup with another setup in which the lapel was with the groom, sadly it wasn't used for the SDE.

How do you find the 5D MKII with setting exposure and focus on the run. Is it as quick to adjust as using a video camera with an adaptor

Any thoughts because i am in the process of buying either an adaptor or 5D MKII for my DOF shots

Great work

Rob
Hi Rob,

We had a problem with the aperture since you can't manually control it if it's in video mode especially if you're using canon lenses (i think some use nikon lenses in which the aperture can be controlled manually via the lens.) but there are several techniques where you can overcome this, some are in vimeo. For the focusing, you might need an external monitor sometimes for critical shots but hey, we managed without one... hehehe!

We just used our glidetracks and glidecams.
And yep, we brought a crane courtesy of Mr. Bob Nicolas.

Great work guys!

Question #1 - Would you do it again?

Question #2 - Did you use anything extra to control the aperture? i.e. tricking the camera into shooting as wide open as possible.

Cheers,

Matthew.

1. If given the chance again YES in a heartbeat!

2. We were able to acquire a nine stop filter for the 70-200. But most times we were doing the "unscrew trick" to lock the aperture wide open.

Thanks Matt!

Great work guys. This production felt like i was watching the 90's USA Olympic basket ball dream team. (Jordan, Magic, O'Neil, Barkley...)

I definitely noticed the challenge you guys faces with the audio, not the best quality but does suffice for what you were faced with.

I did notice some focusing issues through the video, mostly on the crane shots where you guys had no control over it due to its remote access. How do you set up the lens during that time, at infinity?

The other question i had was more technical, what software did you use to convert the .MOV to .AVI files? Have you ever thought of using Prospect HD 2K or 4K from Cineform? I heard that this software is actually quite good at converting HD files.

Thanks for sharing your SDE AND your info.

Fellas,

I posted something directly on your site. Fantastic effort and I can't say enough about how impressive your work always is and this colaboration is just shear icing. When people see what can be achieved with Wedding Films it will be the defacto standard and the most important investment a B&G can make for their Wedding. Very well done and Thank You!!

Hmmm, it was Bob's first time with the 5D but i think he has most of the shots at infinity and maybe some having a slight depth of field but too bad you really can't monitor the whole shot if the camera is already up there.

We used canopus procoder. Didn't try Cineform, i think Jason has some issues with it when we asked before.

thanks for watching!

I can't believe you shot this in SD! To me that defeats the purpose of going to every extreme to shoot it!

It's like shooting home videos of your kid with an imax camera!

Hey Matt! Thanks for watching. To reiterate, we shot this in full HD.

Only the Same Day Edit was edited down to SD. It does not defeat any purpose, it actually serves it quite well.

A same day edit is shown after dinner. If shown much much later, say 11pm, even though in full HD, now THAT would defeat the purpose of the SDE.

That said, I am now editing the HD highlights of this wedding.

Cheers!
