I’ve succeeded to built my own special adapter for the DJI Osmo Mobile gimbal. It was a lil bit tricky because the Osmo Mobile motors are weak. But I did it and now I can shoot gimbal stabilized footage with the Samsung Gear 360 camera. The test footage was only stabilized with the Osmo Mobile - no post stabilization was used!

Time for a new workstation

workstation edge

Yay! My ordered parts arrived yesterday and I've finally built a new Windows workstation. I do really like the C70 Vengeance case with it's built in cable management. Makes everything look tidy. As for the GPU I decided to go with the water-cooled MSI Sea Hawk X GTX1080. Should be really enough for my needs in Adobe & DaVinci Resolve. Here are a couple of pics.

Photoshop Live Curves understanding LUTs

lut_live_curves edge

Want to see what LUTs are doing to your footage in terms of curves? Los Angeles-based photographer and retoucher Edmon Amiraghyan has created a special PSD file called Live Curves. It’s simply a Document window that contains a Curves view of the document that updates in real time.

Usually used by photographers you can use it to understand how to get that "LUT" look yourself by using curves in DaVinci Resolve, After Effects, Photoshop, etc.

Just open the Live_Curves.PSD file in Photoshop and add the adjustment layer "Color Lookup". In the properties of Color Lookup load your 3DLUT File and watch what happens to the curves. Get the PSD file from Petapixel.

BTS Having fun in the studio

Self assignment - product video shoot of a vortex drop riffle sluice box with edelkrone slider and Black Magic Production Camera 4K. Got my ordered Gold Well 6x36 Sluice from Bernie with extras and was so excited that I shot a little video in my studio until I can go out and test it at the creek (freezing cold outside). Superb workmanship - this thing is built like a tank but still lightweight enough to carry it around.

Quick Lighting + Motion Control Test

Did some quick lighting & motion control tests with my DIY KinoFlo's and edelkrone equipment to see how it performs on product close ups. The PC is just a placeholder therefore I didn't cleaned it and it's of course full of scratches.

From the AutoCad drawing to the finished product. Everything looks and fits perfectly. This is how my finished knockoff Pelicase with the custom foam inserts for my edelkrone video equipment looks like in reality. Thomas Forster from "www.schaumstoff-inlay.de" did a great job on the cnc cutting. UPDATE: Want a sexy looking foam insert for your edelkrone equipment? I decided to sell my blueprints to DIY people.
