Looks like you’re using a semi-pro camera so you should have a couple of ND filters on it. I rarely if ever use auto exposure. With autoex, you’re completely at the mercy of the cam’s exposure response time. If you use the ND filters, you’ll have far more control over the scene. I’ve shot torch welding, arc and foundry furnaces in action and have used ND filters every time with great results. However, there’s nothing stopping you from running test footage to see which method will get the results you can live with.
