I'm just getting the quick time logo. Do I have to wait a long time?

What are others getting?

I have every form of QT installed on my Mac and running OSX.

R,


Same thing is happening to me on OSX. I'm on a T1 connection and it's still going super slow, if it's going at all.

Edit: It went eventually. Just a bandwidth problem, I think. The file is only 71 MB.

It's worth the wait to get a nice sample. It's nice looking footage, though not the best test of the system I can think of.

Hi Michael,

Richard has ambitions to shoot & complete the first RED feature, using crew from this forum that might have problems buying a camera in their own name.

Well... Don't know what Richard thinks, but I, for one, am quite pleased with those pictures. I can only imagine what the result is in 4K, projected on a big screen. But still: I, as an early reservation holder, do have a BIIIIIG smile on my face right now !

Ok it finally played...looks really good. Jackson is certainly putting NZ in the spot light. I lived there for two years, I love kiwi land.

I don't know what to say with regard to its "look" vs 35mm. It will simply come down to individual choice.

I wish I could have seen a lot more.

No need to flame me, I cry "uncle", it looks good, it looks good....I just think 35mm will be my format of choice for a variety of reasons. None of which I can mention without enraging half the forum, all of DVXuser.com, and 99% of Reduser.net.

But it looks good, it looks really good!

And if JJ sees his threat through, then Richard will surely have more than enough "crew accomplice" to wrap his Red picture :D

I think you're completly off the board here: no one on Reduser.net or dvxuser.com will really care about the fact "35mm film will be Richard Boddington's format of choice for variety of reasons". Why? Simply because RED DID DELIVER (and even you, and that's quite a surprise, seem to agree with that fact)! The quality is good enough for most of us! It might not be the same as 35mm, but it is close! Different for what I care! It is just as if Red was a new type of film: neither inferior, nor superior, just looking slightly different than existing 35mm film.

So, I, for one, couldn't care less if some people choose to shoot in 35mm film rather than Red or vice-versa: I know the Red will become quite a usefull tool for the job I am doing and the type of things I am shooting! Period! Sure, there are situations where film will hold an advantage, but I don't believe I will face any of these situations in the next future, so I really don't think I am going to say anything but : THANK YOU RED! YOU DID DELIVER!

Well thanks for some what verifying my theory.

I was pointing out that if I go back over listing why I prefer 35mm, it immediately infuriates the Red and other HD users. Even though one may be pointing out a very logical benefit of film. And since we've been down this road 1000 times it's obviously pointless at this stage.

Regardless of how good the Red picture looks, it won't be the saviour of those who feel they are currently barred from greatness in Hollywood for the sole reason that they can't afford to shoot 35mm. Just as being able to shoot 35mm doesn't open the gates of Hollywood either.

I said the picture looks good, and it does. But it will still be a matter of taste in the final analysis and that's fine. "Good" HD systems have been around for some time now, yet the producers of "er" and "Law and Order" are still shooting on 35mm. I assume they have their reasons.

FWIW... Battlestar Galactica is the new favorite series here in the studio. The dop does CC on set with his hdcams.

Here in the studio? What exactly does that mean? I thought the show was shot in Vancouver BC?

I'm sure the producers of BG have their reasons for using HD.

I'd say based on this footage, RED is much closer to film than HDCam currently is which may sway some TV Producers.

I've never seen any HDCam footage that looks anywhere near as good as film. Battlestar has a very specific look which masks the difference

Hi Michael,

I am sure Richard would accept support from JJ for this project!
