The progress in favor of uniformity
Is evident and necessary.
No, not necesary, urgent.
Taking a simple example that can be
Extrapolate to still: I'm interested
in this pocket BM camera
That uses Cinema DNG and supposed
To be the attempt of RAW standart in
Motion imagery. Fine so far.
But then, the workflow has to go through
Resolve. It's not that Resolve is bad, it's
That I don't like it and I have other system
I paied for. If you are on smoke2013 for
Ex, Cinema DNG isn't supported. Media Composer?
Not supported. Etc etc...so first, I'm on
Bondage with some software: no choice.
2) metadatas. So if we got standardized metadatas
Protocol, the way we can apply the workflow
Will be extremely more simplify and user friendly,
And the archiving preservation ] guarantee.
So if I buy this camera, not only I buy the
Camera, but a specific workflow that gives
No choice to the user. Then, if I mix with Red footage,
I have to apply also another Type of workflow
Within the same project, wich isn't rare.
The result of this proprietary mess is an over
Complicated workflow, issues within roundtrippings,
More time spent in order to acheive tasks,
No support during some time each time a
New format is released etc etc...
WHO wants that?
Progress has always been about simplifying.
