Hi all !

 

If I'm not mistaken, the first gen Cinteronic does not offer a built-in Frame Line generator, it only offers the opportunity to squeeze the image into a 2:35 from 16:9 for example. Then it does not crop the image, which is problematic...

 

So, I would like to know, for those who have or have been using the Cinetronic first gen or any other monitor that have the same problem, how you'd normally setup with the good frameline. I already tried to make tape marks on it, but I guess there are better options.

 

Although I know that with the Alexa you can get a frameline directly out of the camera. But according to the RED, I don't think there's any way to do it, am I right..?

 

Tips, tricks?

 

Much appreciated !

 

Simon.

You can get frames lines and even menus out on the red epic as well

You have to change the HDSDI out option on the Epic from 'Clean' to 'Overlay', which shows the framelines and some other pertinent info. Or you could do 'Menu' which shows a whole lot more info.

 

The problem I find with the framelines on the Epic is that they are very thin, and can be hard to see. While you can change the colour, you can't make them thicker.

Great, good to hear that the Epic is doing it.

But what about the other stupid cameras that aren't? The FS700 for example...

 

Thought about it, I may do some transparent plastic sheet - which I don't remember the name (like the one teachers used to project her writings with a projector when we were kids). And make some permanent setups for every format. So whenever it happens, I just tape the sheet onto the monitor.

 

Will try that.

 

Thanks!

You can also use dry erase markers on this sheet.
