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.

@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.

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

EOS Bodies - For Video / Video processing software for the 5d3
« on: May 05, 2012, 11:14:26 AM »
I recently saw a review by Philip Bloom on the 5d3 video capabilities (Vimeo) and he indicated that he had obtained excellent results by post processing the footage through Adobe Premiere Pro (sharpening).  I am interested in purchasing the 5d3 primarily for the stills but would also enjoy doing videos.  My problem is I can’t afford both the camera and software. I’m currently using LR4 and Adobe Premiere Elements/Photoshop Elements 10 for processing.   My question is whether there is a cheaper alternative to Premiere Pro to obtain the same results?

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Shutter speed during video???
« on: May 03, 2012, 08:17:27 PM »
Shutter speed determines how long the sensor reads the image during the frame. So if you are shooting at 30 fps and shutter speed of 1/90 you'd have open shutter for 1/90 of a sec, and closed shutter for 2/90 of a sec. This affects motion blur in the frame, just like it would on a still. For the most "filmic look" you should use 1/50 on the 5dmkii at 24 fps. A film camera would normally shoot at 24 fps with 1/48 shutter speed. This is also known as  180 degree shutter angle, where the shutter is open for the same duration, each frame, as it is closed.

This is excellent information.  Thanks for sharing.
