I pulled the trigger on the Adobe Creative Cloud for $50/month.  It would take me at least 30 months (cheapest price point, CS5) at $50 to buy the suite so I figure I'm good plus I get the free upgrades and the bonus....?  I don't pay the annual fee all at once, but at $50/month and collect interest on the balance. 

I couldn't afford the 5d3 AND the price of just one program much less the entire suite to support as it was, so this is an excellent alternative and I GET IT ALL on the 10th!!!! Hopefully.  Now I get CS6, Premiere Pro, and After Effects plus whatever else I have the time for.  I figure in 30 months I will know one of them well. 

Thanks Mt. Spokane and psolberg for the tips.

@ K-amps: what program did you use in post to sharpen?

@ K-amps: You did that handheld?  Geeze...... You don't need a tripod.  I took another one yesterday and got it sharper but I shot it at 1/1000th and with mirror lock.  It was sharper but not as sharp as Forceflow's.  I think Forceflow used a high ladder to take his with.

Nice job.  I want Canon to send me cameras to do a video....... and a tank.  That way I can impress the girls like the guy in shot 2.

Another thing to consider is the new Adobe software rental program.  (I forget the name). 


You are probably talking about the Creative Cloud which runs for 49.95USD/mo. http://www.adobe.com/products/creativecloud.html


Yeah, you can either go with the cloud and get it all or custom use the various programs. http://www.adobe.com/products/creativesuite/cssubscription.html

There is an annual plan and a month to month plan.  If you're not an intensive user like me the month to month might be a good way to go, particularly if you want multiple programs at once (Premiere Pro and After Effects).

@ Axilrod: So it is the card that is at fault here in that it should be reformatted before each shoot? Are there specific cards less prone to these type of failures? 

I'm just starting to do videos and I'd like to avoid these problems.  Thanks.

Hey psolberg, thanks for the tip.  I wasn't aware of the video feature on CS6.  It does provide an interesting alternative.  I'm familiar with photoshop and premiere elements and use both extensively so upgrading to either Premiere Pro or CS6 PS shouldn't be too much of an issue.  Now it is just a question of which functionality I want to put my focus on (pun intended) with limited funds.

I feel a post production party coming on...............

@forceflow: What shutter speed did you take it at? It is a beautiful shot.

Hmmm..... I'm gonna try elements 10 with its sharpen and see if that works.  It's a basic filter and I haven't had need to use it before but I'll give it a try.  With the shipping dates of the 5d3 an unknown I'm going to have lots of practice with my 7d.

I have LR4 and have just started to use it but I couldn't use "develop" in LR4 with video.   Is there a plugin for doing video?  I do remember Kosta on Adobe doing something with video and will have to go back and check that out.  Thank you for jogging the memory.

Its a back door process.  Basically grab a frame, apply NR or other corrections, and then synch it with the entire video file.  This is obviously best done with clips taken under the same lighting, etc.
 
Check out the video.  There are lots of vimeo and utube videos on the subject as well.


Just finished processing in LR4 and it worked perfectly.  Thanks for the help.

LR4 also has the ability to apply many things like Sharpening, NR, etc to video.  Its a sort of back door process, but is going to be a big benefit for those on a budget who want to make corrections to a video clip or match color and exposure accross clips.
 
It makes LR4 a good tool to combine with Priemere Elements.

@ JasonATL: Thanks Jason.  I did look and find the sharpen feature in elements, now all I have to do is get the 5d3. I appreciate your input.

@ Forceflow: I used clarity in LR4 and then brightened the stars in PS.  I was trying to bring out the ray pattern from the lower right impact crater (Tycho) which you so nicely captured in your shot with clarity (LR4).

Very nice shot indeed!  I really love that you can see the stars around the moon.

Sadly, I had an overcast night tonight.

1/500th second.





There always tomorrow and you certainly have the camera and lens for it.
