The latest version 6.13 of the mobile app (iOS/Android) for professional movie recording FiLMiC brings the possibility to record videos on the new Apple iPhone 12 (iPhone 12/12 Mini/12 Pro and 12 Pro Max) and some Android smartphones with 10-bit SDR.
The new features of FiLMiC Pro 6.13.1 for iOS in detail.
- 10-bit recording on 12-series devices (iPhone 12/12 Mini/12 Pro/12 Pro Max only).
- It is now possible to choose between 8-bit, 10-bit and Dolby Vision HDR recording. When selecting 10-bit, owners of the Cinematographer Kit (optional in-app purchase for .99) get a new set of fully optimized curves under the gamma panelspecifically for 10-bit recording: Linear replaces Dynamic; HLG replaces Flat; and LogV3 replaces LogV2. Recording in Log V3 is recommended for optimal results, especially if the video is to be post-processed.
Note, however, that when using the optional Cinematographer Kit, 10-bit capture is limited to 30fps at 2K resolution and above, or 60fps at 1080p.
- The Library and Image Editing panel has been updated to display the currently selected bit depth.
- An updated deLogV3 LUT is available free of charge on the FiLMiC website to quickly switch from 10-bit log to Rec709-capable footage in the NLE.
In addition, FiLMiC performance has been improved and some bugs have been fixed for all devices, including restoring Cinematographer Kit support for iPhone 6s/SE models.
