Skorpio Full Frame Anamorphic 2x and Alexa Mini LF coverage

Fri Oct 02, 2020 2:36 pm

Hi everyone, i'm just trying to figure out how to set rec setting in Mini LF to obtain 1:2:35 4k coverage. What kind of frame line I have to create to a proper framing? And also the squeeze factor set in camera will affect footage? Thanks

Dear Luigi,

that Frameline Composer Setup is a quick and dirty setup of ALEXA Mini LF recording MXF/ARRIRAW Open Gate with a 2x Anamorpic FF Lens for a 2.39 production utilizing the largest sensor size possible.

The image will be recorded squeezed, metadata implies that it needs a 2x de-squeeze.
A similar setup is possible for ProRes Open Gate, footage will be recorded 2x squeezed as well, but e.g. Quicktime Player might automatically de-squeeze it.

I'm not 100% sure about the Skorpio lenses' coverage (Servicevision's leaflet), but since it is full frame you should be good.

Kind regards,
