Hey All

I’ve been working on the VH Stone Music Festival Bluray and I need your opinions before completing,,,, I am not very happy with outcome due The angles are shot from front of stage so we cant get any closer but there is a lot of shaking and movements which in my opinion doesn’t make it enjoyable to watch at times due to all those shakes… I’ve tried removing the shaking digitally but outcome was funky at times . So in order to fix this and make it enjoyable I tested some versions reducing color to remove most of the shaking effects and came up with 2 cool versions …. Black & White and Sephia ( Both of these settings make show more enjoyable but choosing between the two is why I ask your opinions :-) )

Option 1 : Regular Color as is

Option 2 : Black & White

Option 3 : Sephia

Which version do you guys enjoy best :-)

Thx

I don’t understand what color has to do with camera shake. A shaky black & white or sepia video is still shaky.

Do you have a timecode where the color problem is most extreme?

Keep the color. It loses something without it. The light show, which was done really well this tour, it’s not nearly as impressive when robbed of the color.

Try at 1 Min 28 secs…. This is an example as there are some more pronounced throughtout the show….

Well I’ve seen MUCH worse shaking and I understand you want to put out a superior product. I have to agree, though, that removing the color doesn’t make it any more or less enjoyable and is actually distracting. I would prefer the unedited, full color edit, shaking or no shaking. :) Nice job, by the way!!

Here is an extreme example…. Yes I know the shake is still there but to me smoother bw. If this all doesnt bother you I will do it color……. I will make me a BW for myself :-)

This is a matter of taste anyways I will do both :-)

It doesn’t bother me that much. They look the same to me, but, personally, I prefer the color version. :)

The shaking is bad in the color version, and looks about the same in the b/w version.

As the author, you know, and can see all the changes you made. But without leading the horses to water… I dunno if we’ll be able to see them.

I pretty much expect shakey camera work when it’s amateur shot, so it’s not horrible or difficult for me to watch it. Looking forward to seeing the final product!

Yes I guess this will be a matter of taste as working with video alot we tend to notice these little things that may not be the same for others :-) The show is nice aside form these shakes so Color it will be :-)

Thx

The BW definitely makes things look crisper since there isn’t a color halo around the blown-out areas… I like it.


Resident dickhead. I will hurt your delicate feelings.

The question I have is: How the hell can you chew gum & sing at the same time?

Chewing gum is a trick used by singers to keep the throat from getting dry and becoming hoarse from “the blowers”.
