This continual FAQ guide is a handy way to find the answers to the questions that plague you the most.
Hey, there. I'm Robby Carmen. >> And I'm Rich Harrington. >> And Rich, this week we're talking about the all important issue of sort of knowing what our lighting is doing when we're on set and using apps to help us figure out where things like the sun's going to be, where the moon's going to be, and that kind of thing. >> I, I'd like to think that after all these years, I'd get it, you know, I have that whole Eagle Scout going on. But at the end of the day, it's kind of like, okay, the sun's there and I think it's going to be over there >> Sun sets >> But I don't know where. >> Sun sets in the north, right? >> Oh, absolutely. >> Yeah. That's what I thought. >> I'm letting you drive home. >> LAUGH. >> All right, so, we're trying to figure out where the sun is going to be and it sort of depends.
There are some different issues and we're going to look at a couple different apps this week. Some that just give you sort of an overhead view for planning, some that give you a 360 or a live view, as well as just some other general information for things like when's sunrise, when's sunset, when's twilight. >> Yeah, yeah. And you know, all of these things, like anything having to do with scouting, all have to do with getting information, you know. And you can also of course, not just scouting, you can use these apps live in the field that day. You know, if you're, you know, if you go over and go, hey we're going to take an hour for break. I wonder where the sun's going to be in an hour.
Easy to figure out. >> Yeah, so when we come back we're going to take a look at LightTrac, which gets us a great overhead view of our current location.
