a First workshop is organised on the 24th of january 2015, at F/LAT space . please register with motivation at firstname.lastname@example.org as places are very limited
The workshop will be divide in two parts
In the first part, the organizers will give a quick presentation of the apertus° project (history and perspectives) and then boot the camera in order to have a live view, explaning each step. Then, every participant will be able to change paramaters and play around with the camera.
In the second part, we will try to record a video, either through an external HDMI recorder or directly making a DNG sequence recorded on the computer. If we have any success, we'll find out how to handle the video/DNG sequence with open source softwares (e.g. blender)
The organizers will provide the Axiom Alpha Camera, an Ubuntu computer to set it up and a video monitor (HDMI connection) to have a live view.
We are currently looking for an Atomos external recorder.
