The two most important to me are the legalized HDMI output and the addition of an IRE balance when using fake colors. 🌈 Full to Legal LUT: bit.ly/3hjeh6D💾 Ninja V Firmware: www.atomos.com/firmware/ninja-v 🛒 Atomos Ninja V: geni.us/mMb23🛒 equipment I use to make videos: kit.co/GeraldUndone/youtube-video-gear Yes, legalize the protocol. Don`t you remember when people think the logarithmic signal is too contrasted? Hence the legalization function. But the name is confusing. It`s not a legal signal “The legalization feature allows you to convert a full-range video signal to a legal range signal to meet NLE editing workflows in the legal field. This parameter is intended for use with SDR or REC709 inputs that are set or set to FULL range, but recording or monitoring is required within the “legal range”. “If your camera doesn`t produce a full-range signal, you need to use the legalization option. Legalize HDMI inputThe update provides Ninja V users with the ability to manually apply a full range conversion to the registered input. The parameter offers the possibility to legalize REC.709 inputs that use a full range (8bit 0-255 / 10bit 0-1023) to assign them exactly to the legal range (16-235 or 64-940) to increase flexibility with NLE systems. www.atomos.com/firmware/ninja-v and follow the instructions.
I think in the video it talks about only enabling the “Match Settings” option for HDR processing in the recorder. I have reported this issue to Atomos a few times and I also know several other people who have done the same, but have still been provided to respond or fix. If you go out to the Ninja V and the image looks flat, your camera is giving a signal at full range and you should not use the Legalize feature. It also looks at the new %IRE scale in false color mode, where values have been added to allow accurate exposure of skin tones when exposed, as well as new frame guides in different aspect ratios for social media, making framing easier for Facebook, Youtube, Instagram or Twitter. So, to legalize or not to legalize? During the broadcast of S-Log3 to Ninja V? I set the Legalize option to ON because this way it shows the same contrast on the ninja monitor as it does on the camera monitor. And also when importing the clip into Premiere. The latest update includes new image guides, false-color tools, and anamorphic compression. 🚩 If you`re a fellow YouTuber, I highly recommend giving TubeBuddy a try. It`s a fantastic tool that saves me hours every month.
www.tubebuddy.com/Undone If I produce S-Log3 (NOT RAW) and record via the ninja with a LUT only for monitoring in a ProRes codec, should I use the “Legalize” option or not? It`s certainly better on my screen, but I don`t want my editor when I put the images back. The AtomOS 10.3 update can be downloaded for free from the Atomos website. Your answer is a bit confusing to me and contradicts your user manual, which says: To monitor F-LOG, it is recommended to set “Log/HDR” in “Camera Output” to ON and the Legalize option in this mode is not available. Apparently, Premiere doesn`t have the ability to treat the video as a full area (at least in previous versions, I don`t know now). Alternatively, it is possible to record with Legalize OFF and then apply a LUT that sets the video to legal (but this way you save the file in the full range). jem Schofield of theC47 is a producer, cinematographer, director, educator and founder of theC47, an online and offline educational resource focused on teaching the art of video production and filmmaking.

I don`t own an Atomos Ninja V, but last year I rented them several times to shoot a project in LOG. Users can update their Ninja V units by downloading the latest AtomOS 10.3 here: The new features of the update will be useful to anyone who creates social media videos or needs footage to be legally streamed from the first recording. And in Davinci Resolve, there is an option to treat video as a full range. According to this www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSZ4WGsKLAY video, it`s best to set Legalize to OFF if you`re using Resolve. And if you use Premiere, you can set it to ON to make it easier. Or you can set it to OFF and then use the conversion LUT (there is a link to the LUT in the video description). The legalized HDMI input is for me one of the outstanding features of the new update. This applies to the full conversion of the signal range directly to the input. This is extremely useful if, for example, you are recording from a computer or game console and need it to be ready to stream.

I`m a little confused even after watching Gerald Undone`s video about the Legalize option on my Ninja. Social Media Executive Guides. While it`s still difficult for some to accept vertical or square videos, it`s now a fact, especially for lifestyle bloggers. The new update therefore includes a specific framing for Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Twitter. That means a pretty wild selection of guides like 1:1 and 1.91:1.1. Portrait framing for Instagram is provided in a 4:5 ratio, and there`s a 9:16 guide for Instagram, Snapchat, and YouTube stories. This hopefully solves the annoying problem where the Ninja V would cut the input and you would lose both the shadow and light information because the device was interpreting everything as (16-235) zone.
More courses and tutorials can be found in atomosacademy.com. Thus. Does the XT3 emit a signal at full range? (via HDMI). I asked them and they replied: When monitoring the Rec709, I set Legalize to ON and all levels seem to be normal (e.g. close the lid and check the waveform on the monitor. It should be at 0 IRE. With Legalize OFF, the waveform of the closed lid is -7.5 IRE and in the actual image, all black and white tones are crushed). If you are working in SDR / Rec709 and a full video signal arrives, it is best to activate the Legalize function on your Ninja V. For protocol entries, conversion to the LEGAL zone should NOT be applied.
Camera log outputs use FULL-Range signals to reach the maximum data level and maintain dynamic range. “However, if you are broadcasting to the Ninja V and the blacks are crushed and the image does not look like it is to the camera, then you are probably giving a signal of legal range and should use the Legalize option. An IRE scale has been added to false color mode to facilitate the exposure of skin tones. “Unfortunately, I have no experience with the Fuji XT3. A new overlay of 9 grids is available for those who need help with the rule of thirds. Framing shots for posting to Facebook, Youtube, Instagram or Twitter each require different proportions. AtomOS 10.3 brings new framework guides so that social media content is always assembled correctly and adapts to different formats. For Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram videos, there are instructions for 1:1 and 1.91:1.1. Instagram portrait mode comes with a 4:5 ratio guide and there`s also 9:16 for Instagram Stories/TV, Snapchat, and YouTube. I just got the Ninja V in front of me. As for what Atomos told me about contrast, I think the image looks more like the camera when Legalize is enabled.
But I`m really not sure that`s what I should do because Fuji doesn`t answer my question, and also because Legalize transforms video data and I`m not convinced by that idea. Hi, and do I need to enable the Log/HDR option in the camera output? When I turn it on, the Legalize option disappears unless I also enable the automatic HDR option.
