  1. Thanks for the help, David. Is there an easy way to extract that and save it as a text file, just in case? But as far as color correction and quality go, converting it to Quicktime has no effect, correct?
  2. Any downside to losing the metadata?
  3. I got a Sony EX1 a few months ago for a long term documentary project (filming over a year) and smaller freelance projects. So far I've been using the XDCAM Clip Browser to pull the files off the SxS cards onto my hard drive, sorted in folders based on projects. Then to edit in FCP I'll either use XDCAM Transfer or Log and Transfer to turn the clips into Quicktimes to edit, and here's where I get curious. Do I need to keep the original XDCAM clips or are the Quicktimes the exact same quality? Is there any quality or color space loss for color timing? Each clip is now taking twice the space and pretty soon that's going to be a big issue. Premiere can just read the native XDCAM clips and edit straight from them, which is nice. Is there a way to just have a small quicktime proxy of each clip, or is that totally unnecessary? I'm also open to other ideas for FCP/XDCAM workflows with minimal hard drive footprint, as well as any inexpensive archival ideas. Thanks!
  4. So I didn't realize it was you until I read the end of the post and I thought, "Wow, they're really friendly. It's like they know me." I shot my lifehack doc on the HD100U. I really liked it, great quality, I was just curious to see what other options there were in the 1080 field. But on the flip side, I shot some more stuff using Ryland's Sony 1080i cam (sorry, forgot the model number) and every time there's fast movement I get those interlaced lines. Now I'm not sure if it was the camera or that I imported it as MPEG then converted it to MOV. So this has me worried about something fast paced like boxing. Thanks for mentioning the EX-1 and 3. I was also thinking about the Panasonic P2 cam. The only concern I have with going tapeless is this'll be remote shooting, filmming a lot of fights a day, and it'll get costly to get enough cards to cover my ass. But I guess these can take hard drives, no? Are those reliable? And also because I'm traveling the JVC is a little bulky. Thoughts? What's the main difference between the EX-1 and 3, besides 2 grand?
  5. I'm producing a shoot of a boxing match in a few months and I'm trying to figure out the best camera to use. Here's the situation: -Multi-camera shoot, so I need something that can have the time code synchronized -Handle low light well -Handle fast movement and action well Any camera suggestions would be a great help. Thanks!
  6. Here's some photoshop brushes that cover tungsten, HMI, a person and the camera. Basic but it gets the job done. http://coffeeandcelluloid.com/free-trade-downloads/

    Pulling focus

    Thanks Dave, that makes sense.

    Pulling focus

    Sorry to reopen the DoF debate, but there's only one factor that controls it and that's f-stop. Focal length and distance give the appearance of shallow DoF, but it doesn't actually change it. This article goes into great detail about this and gives examples: http://www.bluesky-web.com/dofmyth.htm
  9. I'd say yes because even though you can put the scene and take number in the file name, the sound mixer could get it wrong, so therefore it's nice to have the verbal slate on the actual audio file just in case.
  10. Thanks Leon and Simona. Being in school right now we have a little fun with it - the last show I was on we used Harry Potter words, even going so far as 'Scene 3 and the Goblet of Fire,' but this was partly the script sup's idea plus the script sup is the assistant editor, so they're syncing the footage. I just wanted to know when I hit the real world if there was a standard, because I'm pretty sure '4 Black comma Sirius' won't fly. Thanks again.
  11. Does anyone know the official (if there is one) film alphabet used when slating a scene? Apple, eh Baker?... I know it's different than the military alpha, bravo; but a Google search yielded nothing. Or am I wrong and there is no official alphabet, just use a word that starts with the letter? Thanks.

  13. Eh, more intriguing. Does your friend have the icons? I think Freehand got the ax in the Macromedia/Adobe merge.
  14. Might as well revive this topic instead of starting a new one. On the web the only diagram I could find was an actual stencil for plotting on paper. A previous post talked about using Photoshop brushes. Anyone made those and is willing to share them? Or does anyone know of a site with symbols? Thanks.
  15. Yeah, I've been seeing it during the movie pre-show and in the theatre lobby. I'm not really a fan of Wal-Mart but the commercial is great, well done.
