  • Hey folks, I tested the Apocalypse setting with I-Frames, and thats happens:

    It looks GREAT! Sharper and more detailed than the old sedna. I hope you like it - merry x-mas!

  • No, you can't. It has been discussed here long and wide. 24 fps will always be better than 25 fps, since 25 was introduced as HBR in an afterthought by Panny.

  • I just replaced my GH1 with GH2 and going to try the Cluster patches, but some things are not so clear to me:

    What I see from the settings, if I switch to PAL, then I can shoot at 50fps, if I understood right. But can I shoot at 25 with the same characteristics and success as if as at 24?


  • Can somebody please tell me the difference between Canis AM and PM and Night? Is it like Cluster 6 sharp and soft?

  • Thank you for all of your work Nick! Have a great holiday :)

  • @driftwood OMG!! Thank you so much sir, this is a damn surprise for me. I am speechless. Thank u for considering my request. Merry Christmas sir.

  • @Driftwood thanks for the amazing present. I'll give it a go this weekend

  • @rajamalik Just because you nagged me so much - and a Xmas prezzie for all Driftwood Intra fans, I will release Canis Majoris Day AM shortly.


  • Shot with Cluster v6

  • Thanks driftwood! shot with Quantum. Camera only locked up a few times. that 8 bit color sometimes becomes a problem with the blue skies. I did color correct some of the shots.

  • @efonius Wich hack version of Apocalypse now did you use? It's FANTASTIC. Is it reliable?

  • I edit my previous message: in the end i bought the 64gb 95mb/s sandisk, to try the best hacks! Now, which are the best hacks? Can you help me, please?

  • Hi guys, sorry if it's off topic, but I've decided I want a stable hack that does not give me problems, and I know that the choice is between FM2.02 and Cluster v6 drewnet, correct? I would like to try this last one. I make this choice also because I do not want to spend so much for a 95MB / s, are too expensive! I would like to get a card cheaper, and I saw the sandisk 64gb 64gb 45mb/se the Lexar 400x (60mb / s). At the same price. The lexar is faster and costs the same: you say? Can I take that? Lexar is reliable? Thanks to all!

  • @Bueller That's the 14-140!!!! Holy crap. Whatever you did in post makes that lens look great. Maybe the best non-doc or non-eng stuff I've seen with it.

  • Thanks for watching PV Community. Driving Miss Daisy was done with the stock 14-140 on iso 200. Then in post I played around with Crumplepop's Finisher and colored in Davinci Resolve. I really liked what Finisher did and it gives great bang for the buck. I have not tried Film Convert yet but look forward to trying it on future projects.

  • @Bueller really really nice man. What lens/iso/post/filter adjustments did you do? Looks very filmic and not videoy at all.

  • @efonius, great work man, I am downloading a trial version of Fim Covert to try it on some sedna A q20 I have. Love the mood and also the sound...

  • @Bueller- I find that a very nicely put together promo! I liked your shot selection and angles, and particularly appreciated your tight editing. Nothing worse than watching 3 seconds of someone fumbling with keys, etc. VERY nicely done!

  • driftwood, Sorry, I did not even hack my GH2 because really your orientation helped me make several shots and decide what I want to get as a result after doing the hack on my GH2, I serve good desire to shots weddings and I intend to make short films. Then I will spend most of the time doing very few light shots and require few noise. What do you recommend the hack? Thank's for your help.

  • Hey all. Just a little lighthearted piece I shot for the local playhouse to promote their rendition of Driving Miss Daisy.
    Sedna AQ20.

  • Always go for the 95mb/s if you can afford it. I have three now!

  • Hello guys, sorry if I ask a question you've heard a thousand times, but I need your actual experience. For Sedna AQ1 or Cluster v7 Apocalypse Now Sharp II (which should be the best hacks, right?), The sd card by sandisk have to be a 95MB/s, or a 45mb/s is fine?

    Maybe it depends on how we are "lucky"?

    INFINITE thanks.

  • @efonius .. amazing work dude. Can you tell me more about your workflow? Did you denoise the clip first and then added filmconvert? Or Was everything converted using FC before editing even began?
