Film I'm helping this girl out with is ruined

I'm doing digital asset management work for this girl's film she shot over the weekend and she didn't realize she had to turn off this setting called "live view mode" on her D-800 camera to shoot and now all her footage has this GUI overlay stuck on top of it.




I tried cropping it to help her but that red box is still on top of everything.

    >anything she could do


    Nothing to help with what she has, but she has now learned that you ALWAYS do a test before jumping into a production shoot

    That setting on the Nikon D800 only applies to uncompressed footage recorded from the HDMI port, so it seems you are using footage from an external recorder. Is it possible she had a memory card in the camera when shooting? The D800 will have recorded compressed files without the overlay to either or both of the internal cards.


    For maximum resolution when recording to an external device, you're supposed to remove all memory cards, but maybe she messed that up too and forgot to remove them?

    I have the d800 and ninja 2.  I'm using an ssd in the ninja to get uncompressed stuff from hdmi output as mov with avid codec. Can get pro res if you want.  For pc the avid thing is better ( for me ).

    you have to pull out all storage cards ( sd and cf ) to get full 1080 to the ninja. If you leave the sd card in, then it defaults to 720p in the ninja even if you have the d800 set to 1080p.


    theres a website that ninja has that gives all the settings to make to use it with the d800... gives screenshots of settings to make in nikon, step by step instructions.


    good luck

    The good news is that you have uncompressed footage with lots of color information that you might able to use in a color correction program to reduce or eliminate the overlays/red box, depending on the background, subject, etc. It looks like you tried to post an image in your first post. Would it be possible to try posting that again?
