Looking good again, Dan, and I tell you what, I could see very clearly, that effect I was trying to explain before and none of you believed me.
That flicker effect the tubes were simulating on that bike video was clearly visible in your video, too. If you look especially at the part where he’s messing with the wheel, you can see the flicker very clearly all over the bodywork! I don’t care what you say this time, you must be crazy if you can’t see it, there is definitely a flicker that is either down to the shutter of the camera or the equipment they used to transfer your film (possibly both).
It is something that is being ignored by all those software packages out there that are simulating film. Just remember who told you they’re missing the flicker effect when it finally dawns upon those that makes such software - and suddenly, it’s everywhere. There is definitely a flicker visible whenever film is in use, so you peasants need to get a monitor with a faster response time if you cannot see it.
It’s one of the things that makes film look like film when you simulate it, and when it is missing, we know something is wrong. While I’m on the subject I might as well also point out that I finally figured out what’s special about the D90 (100% confident). I mentioned that for the most part it was actually the Nikon lens that made the D90 look good, and it is, but it still manages to have something the others don’t even when you’re not using a Nikon lens on it. So what is it?
It’s actually down to how bad the compression is on the footage itself, and the likeness is made because cinema often uses anamorphic lenses. And how do they connect? When you defocus an anamorphic lens just slightly, you get a slightly stretched bokeh, and it’s that slightly out of focus bokeh that the D90 is unwittingly imitating due to how muddy it’s footage looks. The only difference is that the muddyness of the codec looks as if the bokeh is stretched in all directions. In other words, one of the D90’s biggest problems (codec quality) is unwittingly giving a desirable aesthetic: one that gives the vague impression of the bokeh you get from a slightly defocused anamorphic cinema lens.
As far as I’m concerned, the D90 aesthetic is now dissected (I was 100% determined to do that, and I learnt a few things doing so).
Anyway, back to your filmmaking, hurry up and make an atmospheric Horror Film like Eraser Head, or a directorial masterpiece like Night on Earth. Oh, and stop trying to kill your sister on the hammock you evil bazzard (yes, I spotted the other video) :-D
I know sisters can be a pain in the arse, but If you kill her, you’ll have less actors to film, peasant!
