There are many reasons to use Filmic Pro if you are a mobile videographer. The chief among them is its automatic controls, called "drag-to-point" controls. With these pull-to-point controls, you can not only adjust the focus, zoom, exposure, ISO and shutter speed before and during the operation manually. They also allow you to set start and end points to automate each function, giving you the freedom to focus on filming.
If you are an experienced camera operator, you already know why the tools are so useful. Dragging, exposure, ISO, shutter speed and focus give you the ability to control your image precisely. Even better is to automate the experience, which means that you know exactly what the camera should do so that you get the effect you want at first, against fumbling around with controls and crushing the passage.
It may be difficult to pay attention to your focus, zoom, ISO, shutter speed and exposure while worrying about your subjects in front of the camera. With drag-to-point, these worries are a thing of the past, and it is less worrying about multitasking.
How to use the zipper control
Before entering the automation drawing, we should understand ourselves with the tool. There are two ways to activate the pull-to-point either long-pressures on the exposure or focus staples or point to the pull-to-point white dot icon surrounded by three white curves ̵1; bottom left.
A semicircle wheel, that is, an arc, will be displayed on the left side that holds the exposure controls, and the same is shown to the right for zooming and focusing. If you tapped the pull-to-point icon, both will appear simultaneously. Otherwise, only the selected one will appear. These arc controls control your selected function, as you move it downward, the control moves occasionally, while moving upwards does the opposite.
You can control the shutter speed (fraction at the bottom), ISO integer at the top) and exposure that are only the two combined for the left boat truss. Pressing the shutter speed or ISO locks the setting in place (the number turns red to indicate it). Moving the arc along the wheel then adjusts for the second option. For example, if you lock the shutter speed, only ISO changes when you move the arc.
If no option is selected, adjust the EV value or exposure value, which changes both shutter speed and ISO while previously mentioned. You can also quickly change your ISO ISO by sliding your finger left or right on the points between the shutter speed and ISO number, where you can choose between "Low ISO Bias", "Moderate ISO Bias" or "High ISO Bias". "
The right arc control controls both focus and zoom. To select what the boat slider controls, press the name of the function inside the arc. For example, select" Focus "to ensure that the arc is moved along the wheel's shift focus. Unlike the left boat rack, it requires that one of these two options be activated so that you cannot drag both the focus and zoom at the same time.
What you can do, however, is to use both the left and right arc controls at once, set your functions as above, then drag both simultaneously You can change the focus and exposure together, zoom and shutter speed , no matter what combination you might think you would need.
You can automate any of the features mentioned above so that Filmic Pro draws focus, zoom, ISO, shutter speed or exposure to your exact start and end points as soon as you start.
Start by opening one of the boat controls and selecting your desired function (focus, zoom, ISO, shutter speed, exposure). Then pull the arc along the wheel to a starting position. I will use the focus for an example, so I would move the arc until the focus is how I want to start the scene, whether it is in focus or out of focus.
With the archer in the right place, tap the white rod in the middle of the arc, the one indicating where the current position is. You notice that one of the white bricks on the arc is moved to your new location. Then pull the arc along the wheel to an end point. For me it would be that either I want the focus to reach the end of the out-of-focus effect or when the scene is completely in focus.
Now with the bow in the right place for the end point, double-tap the white field again, and you will see the second white check box move to this location.
Now move the arc to the starting point by sliding it along the wheel there or by tapping the fastener. Then press the opposite field mark or the arrow next to it and watch when Filmic Pro takes control of the feature you have specified. If you need to make any adjustments, repeat the process for your new locations. It works for all five functions and both archers. Just like freehand dragging, you can use both archers while automating.
You can also animate the effect in the opposite direction by tapping the fastener, or its arrow, which would be the beginning of the effect, thereby changing it to the effect final. The field markers act as both start and end markers, depending on which way you want to play.
You may notice when you automate pull-to-point that it does not do so at the speed you want. Maybe Filmic Pro focuses too quickly. Perhaps the exposure changes too slowly. In any case, you would like to know that Filmic Pro makes it possible to adjust the speed of the drag-to-point slider.
To change the speed, drag right on the exposure tab (not on the white dots, but you will change the ISO preset) or swipe left on the focus / zoom tab. A slider will be displayed next to the black line, which directly controls the speed of the automatic power to the pull point. It extends from speed "1" at the bottom of the screen to speed "10" at the top.
You can also adjust the speed of the draw-to-point while it is moving, which will provide an interesting ramping up or down effect, where speed increases or decreases during automation.
You cannot restore the boat slider back to the default settings, but you can switch to another preset via the menu that may have them in another location. To return to automatic exposure and focus settings, hide the boat controls and then press the red reticle for either, indicating that you are using the boat control.
