Spanish Cinematographer Pol Turrents (AEC) has published a Blog post and posted a video showing examples and benefits of shooting 48p just like The Hobbit was shot.
YouTube now accepts footage in 1080p48.
Pol shot a short film without dialogue (an a homage to the old video cameras!) to show how it 48p works in a narrative content.
Pol uploaded both the 1080/48p and 4K/24p versions of the short film, so you can see the difference between them.
The original file is a 4K (4096*2160) 48p, shot on the Sony F65 camera provided by ovide, edited on Adobe Premiere using the original MXF raw files and post was done on the Nucoda film master at Apuntolapospo.
To view the short film in 48p please watch it on the Chrome web browser.
