FiLMiC Pro App

Shooting cinematic videos has never been easier for you. No one can carry their camera everywhere with them and neither can everyone afford all the equipment required for shooting the perfect video. By using the Filmic Pro app you can turn your iPhone into a professional cinematographer’s kit and be able to take amazing shots anywhere and anytime. 

After you’ve bought and installed the Filmic Pro App on your device, you’ll need to know how to get the most out of your investment.

 

Initial Setup

When you start to record your video you’ll need to open the settings panel, and decide on the aspect ratio and resolution. 

The standard aspect ratio used is 16:9 but if you’re shooting for different platforms like Instagram, you can set the ratio to 1:1 (a square) or any other options. You can turn the option “Crop Source to Overlay” on or off. 

Then you have to choose the resolution. Usually it is preferred to use high resolutions like 2160p/4K, it will provide the highest detail in your shot which will be give finer editing options and a cleaner look to the final product. However, lower resolutions are recommended if you want to shoot slow motion videos with a high frame rate, as in higher resolutions it won’t be possible to get higher frame rates. 

You’ll also have to set the recording quality, which should be set at “Filmic Extreme” for best results.

Are you a #trucker or #photographer or #cinematographer I get that question when I am out & about lot. I am a person that proves “if a #picture is worth a 1000 words then #video is proof that “creativity” doesn’t end with a #picture or 1000 words”. 🎥🎬 I also drive #trucks #statetostate & #citytocity. Which only peaks my curiosity of what other areas have to offer for #pictures & #video. All I wanna do is shoot🎥 I don’t care what, who or where & good or bad what I capture in mine📽🎬 http://Instagram.Com/TWilliamsTV Just having fun making #videos 🚚🎬 #media #youtube #instagram #video #cinematographer #photographers #directors #showtime #movies #film #author #canon #nikon #rodevideomic #sound #otr #truckdriver #trucker #film

Audio Settings

There will be an audio tab on the settings panel, open this to set up the audio settings. For example if you are using an external microphone it should appear here and you can enable it. If you don’t want any audio in the background you can shoot in “Video Only” mode. 

Device Settings

Open device settings to enable features like; stitching of videos that you have separately made, saving to camera roll, orientation lock to prevent accidently turning the video sideways.

You can also save your preferred settings as presets in the app, so that you can use the settings that you are comfortable with, without going through all the trouble again. 

You can also enable or disable the “stabilization” option depending on your needs. 

Content Management

The CMS option enables you to control the file details of your video. Here you can fill out details like “Production” “Scene” Take” so that you can properly organize what you shoot without getting a huge mess.

So while walking around downtown #nashville #tennessee I saw some young guys #skateboarding in the area across the street from the #countrymusichalloffame one guy was out there with his video camera I had my #Canon #80d using my #24mm #lens I personally think this is one of the best #photos I ever took. Because everything was almost in focus. Personally I think I lucked out because I wanted to practice some #motionphotography anyway because I really missed doing it.🎥🎬👨🏿‍💻 Just having fun making #videos 🚚🎬 #media #youtube #instagram #video #cinematographer #photographers #directors #showtime #movies #film #author #canon #nikon #rodevideomic #sound #otr #truckdriver #trucker #film

Focus and Exposure Assist

Having the proper exposure and focus in your video is essential for prospering editing in post. With Filmic Pro, you can gauge the exposure and focus through image analysis tools, like Zebra Stripe Overlay, Clipping Overlay and False Color Overlay for exposure and Focus Peaking Overlay for focus adjustment.

Moreover, you’ll have histograms to get an overall idea of the colors and image, you can access the histograms and waveform by tapping on the time code area. 

White Balance Adjustment

Adjustment of the white balance can be done by tapping the colored circles in the bottom left corner which house the option for adjusting the temperature and tint on a color matrix, where you can also use presets for certain lighting conditions. 

Adjusting the gamma curve can also be done by choosing one that you want, it will give you more image flexibility in post-production. 

Saturation and vibrance can also be adjusted through sliders. 

Focus and Exposure Control 

The circle appearing on the left side of the center will be used to auto set the exposure of the video, you can drag it to the point of your choosing and fix it there. The same is done with the rectangle for focus. Exposure and Focus can also be adjusted manually by tapping on the round icon on the bottom left of the screen.
