The “one-take” workflow video from Light Iron / Panavision shows the new integration of LiveGrade Pro and the Panavision DXL2 camera.
LiveGrade Pro v4 comes with a lot of new features and improvements. In order to get you started quickly with LiveGrade Pro v4 and give you a smooth transition from LiveGrade Pro v3, this article gives you an in-depth overview of the most important changes.
Typical cameras for digital cinematography have a lot of parameters to be set – the settings for controlling exposure alone already consist of multiple parameters such as exposure index, shutter speed, internal ND filters, but also white balances and sensor FPS. LiveGrade Pro v4 introduces a broad set of features to manage this kind of information.
With the introduction of the Pomfort Account the management of licenses becomes more transparent and offers new options for customers. This article explains the motivation behind the new Pomfort Account and outlines how it plays into the overall licensing concept.
One of the crucial use-cases of Silverstack is the secure copy of camera cards and the assurance of completeness for each copy job. While the software itself is tailored to fulfill this requirement with excellence, as a professional you are naturally looking for ways to double check your work. In this blog article we will demonstrate how to double check copy completeness using Silverstack’s smart file size calculation.
We previously described how easy it is to prepare the camera and connect the app directly to the camera’s Wifi. However, there are situations where other configurations for connecting can be beneficial as well – e.g. to create a higher reach or a more flexible setup. For this reason we would like to introduce you to a few more network connection alternatives in this article.
The ARRI Look Library offers on-set looks for all kinds of productions. It holds creative color gradings that provide a unique but repeatable aesthetic when combined with the cinematographer’s choice of lenses. PocketControl offers remote management functionality for the looks of the ARRI Look Library and allows to apply and refine them via your iOS device.
PocketControl is an iOS based application for iPad or iPhone that allows to control the camera settings of ARRI cameras remotely. The camera software update delivered with SUP 5.1 enabled access to various camera settings via the camera access protocol (CAP). In this blogpost you can learn how to prepare the camera and connect PocketControl to monitor and control the camera settings.
One of the design goals for Silverstack Lab has always been a fast transcoding engine. We knew that the speed of proxy creation is a crucial requirement for the DIT and her/his responsibility to create dailies on set. Throughout all development phases we have always been asking ourselves the question: “How fast is the transcoding in Silverstack Lab?”
Silverstack Lab is designed around the idea that data management and dailies creation are inevitably connected tasks. Our white paper “Why Creating Dailies Is a Data Management Activity on Set”, points out why closely integrating the creation of dailies into the data management process in the age of digital productions is not only beneficial but also the logical step. With this blog post we want to connect the arguments of the white paper with actual features of Silverstack Lab.
