Canon C500 Slow Motion Test

Palladium was captured to two Gemini 444 recorders at 120fps in 4K Half Raw (RMF) 4096×1080 in a 59.94p timebase. The 4K Half Raw was then transcoded to 4K DPX 10-bit in Canon Raw Development software, which debayered it to 4096×2160 in a 59.94p timebase. Pomfort DPX Header Editor was used to edit the DPX file header to a 23.976p timebase. Proxies were then generated from Da Vinci Resolve for an offline edit. The footage was conformed in Da Vinci Resolve for final color and delivery.
