Cool! ... at General discussions -- Everything else -- Recommended BMD setup for color grading :: https://forum.fanres.com/thread-1446.html
Keep in mind that whatever 2nd monitor you settle on, you'll probably need a calibration kit (hardware/software). BTW, is there a thread here with all this kind of info? If not, maybe you should start one so we all can refer to it long after these Shouts fade away. It would make a good thread.
And as for actual stuff from BMD, would their UltraStudio be recommended? Because that's the cheapest external I could find being offered on their site.
Anyway, would a CRT monitor work as the second monitor for color grading, or would something more high-tech be called for in such a case?
^ ^ ^ Thanks for that heads-up on the RIP. Now what does FTW mean? Well according to http://acronyms.thefreedictionary.com/FTW -- Forget The World, Fare Thee Well, For Those Wondering, For The Worms, Forever Two Wheels, Frank The Welder (mountain bikes), Future Technology Workshop, Forward Towards Wing (Hattrick online game), Families Than Work, Free The Wookies, Forever Truly White, Forward The Word, Full Throttle Workshop, Forever Together Whenever (gaming clan), Face The World, Free Trade Wharf, For The World, Free To Watch, Florida Tax Watch, For The Wolf, For The Wii, For The Weak, Free The Weed, Feel The Wind, Flying Training Wing, Free The Whales, Fight to Win, Feed The World, Feel The Wrath, For The Win, Follow The Way ... WTF (Where's The Fun) ?
Yeah! The Herald Video japanese Evil Dead LaserDisc arrived today. Too bad, I see my LD player next time in two weeks
Anyway, regarding the BMD equipment I'll be needing for manual color grading in Resolve... would a CRT monitor suffice, or do I need something else as my second monitor?
Another for Alien Day: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvIctsTvNRQ ... with a superhero, at the end, who is unimpressed with franchise milking.
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is released today in Italian theaters... a week before USA, it seems.
Also can go up to 32gb of RAM. For 8000 only pick up one with Intel core 2 duo and for 8300 either i5 or i7.
Well, you can pick anyone compatible with OSX (or you can stay Windows if you prefer), that's the beauty of HP elite 8300 or 8000, you can customise it without having to build it from scratch.
Geez, no for video editing you need a good GPU and they cost a lot more than $80.
Your graphic card will cost around 35/80 bucks depending on the performance. Any other buy is a waste of money.
The best I seen is HP elite 8000 SFF can be had for 80 bucks, accomodate Yosemite, or HP elite 8300 (core i7) for around 300, can accomodate Sierra. Don't pay anything more, buy these used there are tons of them from retail stores, and customise with a graphic card, you have more performance for your buck than any costly other pc.
I don't know about Lenovo, but with Dell (Alienware) you pay some design and name...
Specifically, the Alienware Aurora R5, the Alienware Area 51, and the IdeaCentre Y900.
OK, supposing I was to future-proof for 4K, currently I have to choose between a Dell and a Lenovo (I'm an aspiring gamer, too). I'm trying to figure out which of my three options to choose here.
Someone a PAL Betamax Player? There is an auction on another german auction system, with german languaged Betamax tapes... i.e.: Apocalypse Now ...
@MrBrown According to LDDB.com both Image releases are the same disc with different covers. The one with the Laserdisc showing on the right side of the cover is the earliest release. PM sent
Oh.. there is the US Robocop LD at german eBay.. I think, according to the title of the auction.. it is the Image Release...
I'm talking of House, the 80's horror film and its following chapters that finally just arrived on Blu-Ray. @Doombot I did hear about some incorrectly framed scenes and I also had the thought that they could be easily fixed.
Well, technically, it's TV on Blu-ray in this case, but when it comes to TV on any home media format it's all the same, up to and including any music rights.
Speaking of TV on DVD, is the R2 DVD of Open All Hours edited for content like the R1 DVD is? I heard there were music clearance issues.
I'm not that happy with House, it's too bright and i don't know about the colors (skin tones) plus the framing is wrong.
FYI Alien is getting around 6 70mm screenings during May / June in London at The Prince Charles Cinema and Picturehouse Central
Like add grain etc so that it fits with the laserdisc versions of the original 1977 film
Just did, no you lose the high contrast and the picture is soft. If you want to tweak that one, use FilmConvert to make it look like film.
Can someone with a calibrated display take a look at these? http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/206427
(and of course there is this about Easter in the Catholic Encyclopedia) -- "The [use of Easter eggs] may have its origin in paganism, for a great many pagan customs, celebrating the return of spring, gravitated to Easter. The egg is the emblem of the germinating life of early spring. The rabbit is a pagan symbol and has always been an emblem of fertility." -- https://answersingenesis.org/holidays/ea...an-origin/
Oh.. then I would think of getting the first, if possible. Because, I hope that it may have an localizied Title Card. At least I have that hope..
@MrBrown it seems there are 2 Evil Dead German LDs, each one having the same Cat.#(13137). It seems we Brits didn't get a LD of The Evil Dead
Happy Easter guys! (I always forget about gals... are anyone here, by the way?!?)
Now I just need the first german VHS and the German LD (sadly, it is censored), and I would be satisfied regarding Movie Releases of that flick.. until some 2K or 4K restauration Remaster would occur... Too bad, the german VHS I would love to have even is more expensive than the japanese LD...
After seeing Blade Runner on the "Early master" List.. it is extreme, how different the colors are in some scenes in that DVD master: http://sd.caps-a-holic.com/vergleich.php...eichID=171
Argh.. theese collecting desires! I just treated myself a little easter present at ebay: First LD release from Japan of "The Evil Dead"...
The 2002 reprint master date for My Fellow Americans, by the way, is April 9, 2002 (and yes, I just checked).

Trailers of films shot digitally... ehhhh. I would say buy it only if you're a big fan of Avatar.
I say take it, chances are they might represent how the film looks on 35mm.
I'm offered some Avatar 35mm trailers... about 25 bucks each, not sure it's interesting since they all originate from digital?
yep. Maybe they duplicated it and then cut it out, but kept it in the box anyway, so it's definetely a 35mm print
Is there any splice on the lead? Maybe they just used a random lead they had handy. http://images.tate.org.uk/sites/default/...torage.jpg
Hey guys, I just bought a 35mm trailer, I thought I was going to get a regular 35mm print, but it comes with a lead that says it's an internegative. Does that mean I bought the interneg instead of a regular print? It does look positive ie the colors are not reversed.
It goes inside the PC, or if using an external BMD output box, just plug in in via USB3 or Thunderbolt, depending which box you get.
A decklink card works with any graphics card, you keep your main card for general computer use/GUi etc. and the decklink card supplies the image to the broadcast monitor or TV for you to view the colour corrected footage on, and make adjustments etc.
Now that I'm more certain of my theory about the dates on each DVD being their master dates... anyone have a DVD of My Fellow Americans dated 1997 on the packaging?
I'm guessing the Decklink card won't work right with the Nvidia card, right?
It is like colour correcting whilst wearing green tinted sun glasses, not really possible to do a good job.
Without a second monitor, and a BMD output card or external output device, Resolve is completely useless for colour correction, as what you see on your main GUI monitor (your standard computer monitor) is *not* the correct colours or levels, even if you calibrate it.
The cheapest options are the BMD decklink cards, such as the mini monotir https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/products/decklink
download the manual, there is a configuration guide and it explains everything. Basically to run resolve properly, you need a second monitor that can be calibrated fro (at least) rec709. To connect that monitor to your computer, it must be connected through a BMD device, either a PCIe card inside the computer, or an external USB or Thunderbolt output box.
@poita The trouble is, I don't know what specifically I need from BMD for color correction in Resolve. Terms like "output" and "card" are, to me, pretty vague, and not helping is that I have only a passing familiarity with BMD--why, I didn't know until you told me I needed BMD output that BMD owned DaVinci Resolve.
This came up in my youtube feed and I enjoyed it: In praise of 16mm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVWn0DENk5s
Yes, it has to be a BMD card, you cannot colour manage via multiple monitor outputs from your graphics card.
Koopa you might want to post your question in his OT thread so he has time to see it and respond - http://originaltrilogy.com/topic/The-Ori...s/id/49756
