The Moon shot using a BMPCC


I was playing around with the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera from a friend and decided to adapt it to my 1500mm Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope.

The Moon was shot with the Canon EOS 5D Mark 3 + MagicLantern RAW & BMPCC through a Celestron NexStar 6SE. More technical info at the end of the video. Editing and Color Correction done in DaVinci Resolve Lite.

Free Neat Video Profiles BMPCC


Here is my next set of free Neat Video Pro noise profiles. This time for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. I've made them using Neat Video's noise calibration chart and fine-tuned the patches by hand. Just unzip them into the "Profiles" folder of your Neat Video for After Effects or OFX. I recommend to apply Neat Video as the very first filter applied to the video data.

You can use the noise profiles with Neat Video Pro OFX Plugin for DaVinci Resolve too! Just be sure to set Color Space & Gamma to BMD Film if you recorded in RAW mode. Also add the Neat Video OFX Plugin directly to the "first" node. This will ensure that Neat Video uses the unaltered footage for noise reduction. Do your primary grading on a new node.

I've made 3 different sets of noise profiles for BMPCC ProRes Film, ProRes Video and RAW DNG. Make sure to use the proper noise profile with your footage to get best results.

Plugin: Neat Video Pro After Effects / OFX
Camera model: Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera
Profiles for ISO Range: 200 - 1600 (ProRes Film, ProRes Video & RAW DNG)
