different frame size in playback
Posted 21 June 2010 - 08:19 PM
I got a call from the DOP of a small student shoot today after he and his 1st AC (both fairly new to this like myself) were doing some test shooting for a short film coming up, with a query regarding playing back the footage.
Apparently, the frame size of the footage being played back was significantly smaller than what he was framing for in the evf. Him and the 1st AC weren't sure why and I didn't get much more info than that but I couldn't find anything here or on the reduser forums that might provide an explanation so I was wondering if any of you could offer any.
It's quite possible that it's a rather simple explanation that we've overlooked and we are doing another test on thursday but I thought it best to anticipate not finding an answer and cast a net out on here so that by friday I'll have a good idea either way.
Any thoughts? Cheers

Of course, there is a possibility that your playback monitor has been zoomed in, for whatever reason. It may be better to look at the files on RedCine-X.
