  • Damn the new 8.2 makes me work more.

    Damn the new 8.2 with primary color and mask tracking is too cool, I normally looking forward to lunch and dinner but now I keep on and on working and improving my clips, I enjoyed it so much, so many thing you can do with mask tracking I keep on working and working. Now bring on optical flow. BTW, anybody using Sony Slog-2 or 3? do you find that it is not correct? I have to turn to gain way down.

    Matt mentioned in one of his tutorials that exposure is wrong depending on the camera because the base ISO for some Sony cameras is higher, and that Edius can't or won't take the camera model into account.

        Sony recommends exposing S-Log 2/3 bright whites at 63%/62% IRE in camera.

          Yes I like 8.2 now as well. At first I was going to also load 7.5 back but after trying I will just stay with 8.2. On my new 32" display it looks just fine. Would like a little more contrast in the GUI but workable. I also think the mask and primary colour filter is great. I shot a play last week where there was a very bright blue dress on one of the actresses. My AX100 and AX53 nailed the colour but my NX5U was way off, looked a little purple. All were set to fixed indoor WB preset which I normally do as theatre lights now are a mix of LED and tungsten so actually change the WB even within a scene. It was easy to use the mask and fix the colour. Followed Matt's instructions and tracked all the movements on the stage. Most used controls on the primary colour filter for me are exposure correction and WB. Great.
