Hi just found this board and am looking for some good advice. Anyway I have a question(s) and concern in regards to video capturing and exporting. I will try to give as much info as I can, if there is anything else you need to know, please let me know. I just got done with a film shoot for a (hip-hop/rap)music video in a club scene setting using a Panasonic DVX100B(24p normal, 16x9 Letterbox), Canon XL2 (24p 16x9), and a Canon DSLR Camera (HD Video recording). A few scenes were shot in 60i with the XL2 for slow motion purposes later in edit. I have not shot in 24p before and it was recommended for this type of shoot by many I spoke to give that feel we were wanting. Keep in mind the Panasonic was camera A. Both the Panasonic and the Canon are tape driven cameras. The main question(s) I have is what are the import settings I should set on Adobe Premiere Pro (CS3) for capture each camera video footage? What should be the proper settings for the timeline, etc and what are the export settings as this will be used for both online purposes and TV purposes? I would like to know what is the best steps in getting the highest quality video we are needing for the end product which will be for purposes of online(youtube, worldstarhiphop, vimeo, etc) and TV also. So if you have experience with this I would appreciate your input (and help). Any additional recommendations for this type of video are also welcome. Please keep in mind I have never shot(nor edited) in 24p and am very confused on this. Hopefully someone who has experience with the setup can help. When I capture the video right now, it seems grainy, but when viewed in the LCD on the camera looks clean and crisp. Somewhere I am having video loss and not sure what I am doing wrong and I think it is in my settings. Also if you need any additional info, I can provide for you. Thanks for your help! J
Good morning everyone J I am new to the idea of making a feature film and especially trying to make it look professional. I have played with video work and editing for many years but my photography skills in terms of manual use are at the moment beginner, I’ve been told to make a film by a uk film maker I know and really excited about the prospect of giving it a go. If it’s possible I would really love some guidance, I would like it to look as professional quality as possible but of course budget is really tight (same as everyone I would imagine!), I’m considering between the Panasonic HC-X900EB-K HD Camcorder or a Canon EOS 650D Budget is a big issue, and that is probably the best I can stretch as a I will have to get other accessories as well, I’m sticking to a mixture of Cinematic & found footage style mainly for the more forgiving nature of it, thought it was wise for a first attempt. Not being a pro the Panasonic seemed wise with the better auto modes if I found manual too hard to get it right, but my big concern is the 50p mode, I will be editing in Premiere / After Effects, with the final render going to Bluray & DVD, the primary format will probably NTSC ideally, but it will all be filmed on UK PAL equipment (I know, I know), the Panasonic doesn’t have a 24p native mode, the primary format will be NTSC for the reason if I manage to pull it off and its all watchable and ok my film maker friend has said he would distribute it (has a few independent film distribution companies) but of course this means a hell of a lot of video conversion going from the 50p format to NTSC DVD, after editing, I’m worried this will also effect the pacing of the final edit, I have never converted files that drastically before. The problem with the Canon is I feel while it has the 24p recording mode, I’m worried about the lack of stabilization with the idea of a newbie film maker and especially found footage style, and especially my lack in experience of manual use of cameras, I just keep going around and around in circles changing my mind constantly :/ I don’t want to make the process too complicated for a first time hence why the film itself will me very small production and if it makes a difference quite a lot of it will be night time footage. Sorry for the long rang, I would appreciate anyone else’s experienced input if I haven’t put you to sleep J what do you guys think ?.
