The guy's a terrible director and actor, Oscars don't mean a thing, it proves absolutely nothing. 


Um, ok then. Takes one to know one? ;)

In Topic: wich monitor for 4k color grading "lower budget 400 euro"

One of the 4K models, I imagine. You would also have to check if the free version of Resolve actually outputs 4K video. Again, the LiftGammaGain forum would be a good resource for these types of questions.

Honestly though, you don't necessarily need to monitor your edit and grade in 4K just because your camera shoots 4K. Monitoring in HD is still a lot more common, as higher resolutions tend to eat up a lot of graphics card resources for minimal benefit, especially once you are working with a lot of nodes or layers. Personally, I don't think monitoring 4K makes a lot of sense unless you're regularly delivering for theaters and other large displays.

I won't have access to the plates as they are being shot later on.


Can you at least specify the type of geography and time of day for the plates? Otherwise, you may just have to go as generic with the lighting as possible.

Just wanted to move the conversation back to lighting? Any suggestions if the windows are going to be green screen. Assuming I can light through the windows, any suggestions


I think the important thing is to shoot or acquire the background plates first. Otherwise, how do you know what to match with your lighting?

When is the last time you rode a commuter train?  All trains shake and sway, even Amtrak.   A vintage rail car, running on track where there is a rail joint every 39' feet would certainly display constant if small motion, as would the passengers.


If a subway train counts, maybe a few months ago. Otherwise, a few years ago, all over Japan. Trains are a way of life there.

Look, I'm aware that is what happens in real life. But I'm not convinced it's necessary, unless it's for a specific story point. Sometimes less is more. I tend to think verisimilitude is great for rides, but potentially distracting for stories. Just my opinion though.
