Can anyone tell me what the worm starting at 06:56 in this video from the Lembeh Strait might be? I mean the greenish one on the far right of the clip. Thanks


How to edit GH4 C4K footage in Sony Vegas Pro on an ancient computer

04 June 2014 - 12:23 AM

If you use Sony Vegas Pro, I established a workflow that overcomes Vegas' import bug for various GH formats, and allows C4K etc. footage to be edited via proxies, even on an ancient computer like mine.

Mucky Secrets - The Marine Creatures of the Lembeh Strait - Series

10 April 2014 - 02:58 AM

In September 2007 I took my old Sony HVR-Z1P to the Lembeh Strait for 9 days and came back with a ridiculous amount of footage of a ludicrous number of critters. Six and a half years later, I've finally made a documentary of it. Speed of post-production is not one of my strengths :sleepbig:


Last year I posted a prologue video. Now, finally, here is the first episode, which introduces Lembeh's location at the heart of the Coral Triangle, and takes a look at corals and tunicates. If it's OK, I'll post future weekly episodes on this thread.


The camera was in a Light & Motion Bluefin HD housing with a flat port, and I used a Century +3.5 achromatic diopter for most of the macro shots. I used Light & Motion Elite (halogen) lights on most shots.


As always, honest feedback is welcome - positive, neutral or negative.
