I feel like it’s time for me to spend some days with something more independent. ...
Posts like these generally don’t go down well here.
At the very end of the day, as an Author, a lot of people aren’t looking to ‘collaborate’.
a lot of people are here to SELL items and make money. period. Spending 2/3 weeks on a mutual collective product might be ‘mutually beneficial’, – but it doesn’t put honey on the table
It’s not really financially rewarding for the collaborative effort one puts in.
I’m sure there are a lot of sites – like deviantart, where you can canvas other creative people to spend time to collaborating on short music projects and artyfarty independent films, but please know that if you haven’t got the amount of replies you’ve expected, this is the reason why.
hmmm… maybe put quite so simple
I’m wondering if i can get a quick answer.
I received this email today:
’’We have purchased your recording of xxxxx xxxxx xxxxxxxxxxx and would like your permission to play it during the commencement ceremony for xxxxxxxxxx college which will be streamed live on YouTube.’‘
What are the ramifications of this? isn’t this a non-single use licence issue?
streaming? would the Envato Regular or Extended licence be needed?
Finally. does anyone else have trouble spelling Licence ?..or is it License in British (proper) English?
i do agree to some extent. Stock FOotage is approved far more readily than AE Projects. SO whilst you’ve slaved 2 weeks getting your latest super-duper AE project live, in a few hours, it’s surpassed by some stock footage of a Geese swimming…
Perhaps a Row or two of newly published AE files, then underneath the normal 3 rows of Stock Footage.
bring on the fast-moving, choppy 5 second cloud lapses….
All i cvan advise, that if you get a a 4K Blackmagic Cinema Cam, then you must really make it work for you. Always shoot in 4K (and you can scale down later). Otherwise, why bother? just get a 5dMKIII
Make sure you have the processing power for color correcting large files. Make sure you have the time and patience for this. Make sure your client-base is demanding 4K (..when 1080p will do).
It’s a difficult one to call between a Canon 5D MK III and this.
As a MKIII user with all the full EF lenses, it’s easy for me to make the leap… and i have been tempted many-a time to get a a 4K Blackmagic …dunno what’s stopped me though – probably there hasn’t been the need (Thanks to Magic Lantern RAW Video!).
I think my needs now are more Native 1080p hi-speed (200x FPS , 400xFPS etc) – to shoot dynamic slow-mo stock footage – rather than standard speed 4k.
Bare in mind. If you think you can just buy ther camera for $2,000 …and go out and film… you might be in for a NASTY NASTY shock! .. u need to buy a whole lot of other crap to augment your use of the camera, and as your gear builds up, it becomes far from discreet filmmaking…(a lot of stuff to carry around)
But if beautiful vistas and sweeping landscapes are your thing, and you really think native 4K items are actually selling well here on VHive (hmmmm…spurious), then invest in a Blackmagic.
If you’ve got the money, GET ONE ! far superior image quality
Let us know what you decide. good luck!
Absolutely disagree Cyzer. Uninitiated photographers automatically think everything has to be in the centre – a poor understanding or the concept of rule of thirds.
The most boring photos are often ‘let’s just plunk the camera in the middle. done’. The most interesting photos are indeed off centre.
The tilt adds drama to the scene, drawing the eye into the scene.Another benefit of the off-centre composition is that it adds a contrast to the claustrophobic closed in wooded scene, to the free, open field/skies to the right.
The exposure is fine. i bet in the full version you can really see the detail of those dark wood knots and grainy cement road.
Never listen to anyone who tells you stick the camera in the middle. Find your own photographic eye
if i wanted this… i could save up halfway to envato Elite status… then it’d be as out of date as PAL
