Shutter speed and Magic Bullet
by Jeb Ho on May 26, 2004 at 2:59:46 pm
I was wondering whether anyone could help me?
I have a canon xl1 and will soon be shooting some footage - there is a possiblity (should we get the funding) to process it through Magic Bullet. However, we've been told to shoot everything at 1/50 shutter so that the motion blur works properly. Firstly, is this correct?and secondly when we have tested at this speed the picture is very bleached, any tips?
Sorry if I sound rather naive, but I am with digital :)

you would use 1/50th if you are shooting for PAL adn 1/60th if you are shooting NTSC.
not sure about the bleaching as the actual magic bullet does not affect color or look just de-interlacing and de-artifacting..the look suite handles the coor management.

Sorry, wasn't too clear. The bleaching isn't magic bullet. This bleaching is caused by the shutter being so slow, and even with a small apeture the footage is two bright. not sure how to compensate for that really.

That's why it's a good thing to have ND filters at hand (Neutral Density filters), that basically lower the amount of light hitting the lens, giving you room for more creative use of shutterspeed and iris opening.
