Is it plausible that GMail addresses are filtered in some way?

So the non-Gmail address apparently verifies. I did manage to get a Gmail alias (appending the +foobar to the end of the address side) to work, and is currently set, but damned if I get notifications.

I managed to get exactly one burst of emails from Phabricator after adding two additional emails and mashing the "Verify" button several hundred times. Not sure what is going on.

troy_s added a comment to T609: decide architecture for integration with NLE (Lumiera).

It isn't obsolete at all. If you participate in a project you would understand exactly why it is divided into such. Costs, time, and quality all need to orbit around such a breakdown. There is no such blurry distinction to anyone with experience in the field. If anything, the division is much clearer than it was twenty years ago.

I sincerely hope both of you are considering an offline pipeline while theorizing. Offline to picture lock. Focus on that.

I'd encourage this to be a standalone unit as it is with almost every other camera manufacturer.

troy_s added a comment to T484: create color space article.

I did a secondary review and I think it seems fine. The more arty images would also be useful to keep the subject matter approachable, and any seem like good additions to spice up the rather dull material.

troy_s added a comment to T477: Develop Method for Image Sensor Characterization.

Should we consider colour characterization in this? If so, it would be worth considering a light box that enables us to push extremely wide primaries outward as far as the spectral locus permits.

troy_s added a comment to T265: Variable ISO via frame averaging..

All of these dynamic range hacks fall to the dreaded issue of motion; what can work theoretically for still images, works appallingly for motion based work. Hence the vast majority of these cheats are relegated to the bin as marketing hacks, with the exception being an exceptionally constrained and limited shooting context.

Right. Except motion blur frame artifacting.

troy_s added a comment to T98: "Cupboard" concept design of AXIOM Beta Cage .

I am open to any options that work toward a clear design goal. News / in-field documentary work would come with unique and possibly counter axis design goals when considering a cinema camera, for example. Alexa versus Amira come to mind.

troy_s added a comment to T267: Preview 3D LUT - FPGA feature.

Given that the sensor's data is effectively unknown, a “preview” could be interpreted to mean a few different things:

  1. A generic 709 that correctly transforms the sensor's data into meaningful values. That is, it requires defining the primaries relative to the sensor in relation to 709 / sRGB, hence the need for a 3D LUT which is the only method to adjust the saturation intents.
  2. A more creative 709 view that might offer slightly crunchier blacks and a softer rolloff. Some vendors take a little creative liberty with their 709 output. Still requires as 3D LUT.
  3. A unique preview LUT, or series of LUTs, as designed by a cinematographer for an estimation of looks for lighting usage on set. Would require a primaries transform to whatever display type chosen, and therefore 3D.

since the sony f55 have the xlr's on the side(90º), i totally understand that this is a bad idea :)

troy_s updated subscribers of T171: add cheeseplate concepts to wiki.

On the subject of powder coating or wrinkle coating, it might surprise you the number of times I have encountered cheesplates or like threaded elements that have been coated without consideration to the tolerances of the bolt. This often ends up with a need to re-tap the freshly coated objects such that a bolt can be accommodated.

I can see a cabling nightmare here. Cables jutting out the previs images, camera left or camera right, is going to almost always be a sub-optimal decision.

troy_s updated subscribers of T244: image pipeline: highlight recovery.

@Bertl: The idea is that the data, being captured in a scene-referred / sensor linear manner, becomes occluded near the top end. I am not entirely sure this applies to the current design, but I will outline the general concept.

I would add that typically there are two 3/8s for the addition of standard quick release plates to Ronford / Baker style quick release clasps.

I have seen a tandem before on prosumer (hate that word) plates, but industry plates are universally 3/8s, hence the discussion from yore requesting several around the body for mounting.

It should be a 3/8 standard coarse thread female, not 1/4 20.
