@Fr0sty, thank you for your kind words about my night sky time lapse work.

When you consider transit time, setup time, shooting time, and processing time it can take 10 hours to capture 10 seconds of video so I shoot with 3 cameras simultaneously to capture 3 times the footage. My equipment is …

  • 3 cameras: Canon 5DM2, 5DM3, 5DM4
  • 3 lenses: Sigma ART 14mm f1.8, 20mm f1.4, 24mm f1.4
  • 3 tripods: Gitzo
  • 3 intervalometers: Pixel TW-283
  • Miscellaneous: Rhino sliders, eMotimo pan/tilt controller
  • Software: LRTimelapse, Adobe Camera Raw, Adobe After Effects, Vegas Pro

Time lapse is my major interest, at night I shoot the stars, during the day I shoot clouds. All of my work is on Vimeo (336 videos). Here is one more night sky time lapse if you are interested.

I think you posted this in the wrong thread... This is for people's creations they made in VEGAS.

@fr0sty Are you referring to my latest post about PI in VEGAS? You didn't tag anyone and the thread is 14 pages long

With the recent focus on high frame rate capture and slow motion playback, I decided to shoot some when my daughter came over with one of my grand dogs.

He thinks green lemons are fun toys.

It was edited in VP14.

Although it doesn't matter to anyone any more, I'm rather senstive about creator permission, and this one isn't worth all the effort.

I too use multiple angles. I have 3 S1's and a GH5 that I lapse with, about half my full video rig.

I use LRTimelapse as well, though with exposure leveling in the S1, I really don't need it anymore. VEGAS' built in flicker reduction takes care of the rest. I also have a couple different star trackers and a slider. I edit and color into HDR in VEGAS pro.

I see we use the same sigma lens... my other lenses are: 2x Lumix 24-105mm f4, Lumix 70-200mm f2.8, Sigma 14-24mm 2.8. For the GH5 I use an olympus 7mm 2.8 and an Olympus 45-150mm 2.8.

This Rufus was one of my luckier planned shots (1990, Kodacolor 400, f/2.8, 1/125?).

Gotta love that grain.

Shot on Mavic Air 2 in 4k 60p 100 MBPS HEVC.

Rendered in Mainconcept AVC CBR 240MBPS 4k60p

Have to turn OFF "file io" hardware acceleration prior to rendering due to skipping frames in final render.

On the latest studio nvidia drivers.

How's this processed? A true high frame rate camera capturing ?

Is there any post-slow motion process involved?

In month of August, I along with my running community are competing with other running community for one brand Sport Active Wear challenge where we as team must run most of mileage (virtual runs), while also posting for social media (Instagram), minimum a selfie medium shot pose photo wearing that T-Shirt.

Well.... rather than just a photo of myself, I personally try push further with power of video combining my other team members posting their photo selfies (instantly all become models 🙈), and all my videos can be watched on my IG channel. A quick & short 'production' workflow considered so I can have 'more quantity / counts' rather than just focus on one. Captured in 4K-50p, adjusted for 1:1 standard IG Feed aspect ratio and few of it also for 9:16 IG Story aspect ratio.

Correct... limited time capturing... so must have a right timing of capturing the scene.

A video projection mapping installation I made on the facade of the Alabama Music Box in Mobile, AL to raise awareness for the Red Alert: #WeMakeEvents campaign. Made using VEGAS Effects (All but the 3D animation stuff) and edited and encoded into the proper format for my mapping software (DXV3) in VEGAS Pro. I was even able to use VEGAS Pro's Mesh Warp effect to get a preview of what my animations would look like properly mapped onto the surfaces of the building before I rendered it off the timeline, saving me rendering time should any adjustments need to be made.

Around here they let the artists hang on scaffolds for weeks to paint the sides of buildings. Your method is less intrusive, if less permanent.

And it can move! Not just still images. I've been painting buildings and objects with light for about 10 years now.

Wow Rich, most of us will go a lifetime without our own gallery showing. Your photography is show worthy, and the presentation and space inspiring.

Your cutaways are way too quick. My eyes never get a chance to grok what they are being drawn to, maybe double the lengths of your pan-and-pull clips. The (very) compressed orchestral hits around 21-24 LU took me right out of my chair, and stole my cognitive focus away from the visuals. Consider re-imagining the audio?
