Multi Camera editing with GH4 clips split into different files
by Andy Jarvis 4 years ago
New to Premiere Pro CC and trying to work out how to use multicam editing. Unless I'm missing something, a lot of tutorials seem to assume there's only one single continuous file for each camera angle

I used FCP7. With this, I had to export each camera shot as a QT reference file to bind each one together as one, and then re-import and use the FCP7 multicam tool as normal. Whilst this is a bit of a
GH4 footage darker than LCD screen

I am new to the GH4 and have just shot a low light music video. The footage looked great when I was shooting but when I put the card into my computer from then on the footage looks much darker - it lo
Re: GH4 footage darker than LCD screen

In terms of grading. the GH4 is a very noisy camera. Set it up wrong or underexpose by more than a stop or two and you've got a real headache. Looking at that particular image I'd probably just use a

Hello. I shot some footage of some people dancing with 2 x C300 cameras. I had one recording as normal at 1920x1080 25fps and the other at 720 and 50fps using Special Recording Slow Motion. The plan w

Hello Todd, thanks very much for your very constructive comments. Here are a couple of quick clips. This is 50fps footage at 200% speed. Weirdly, the effect I'm talking about is much less pronounced o
To deinterlace or not to deinterlace when transcoding footage?
by Andy Jarvis 6 years ago
I am confused by deinterlacing and would love an answer from someone who knows what they're talking about. I have just finished editing a documentary. It was shot on a DSLR Panasonic GH3, so it's HD 1

I did some tests with resolution charts and found that ClipWrap does a better job of converting 1080 25psf files from a Lumix GH2 into ProRes 422 than the FCP7 Log and Transfer.

I'm having a recurring nightmare with frame rates and syncing, any help would be enormously appreciated! Me and my colleague use Panasonic GH2s, and we always shoot in 24fps. Somehow for our last shoo

Sean, I can't say it did, to be honest. I ended up just manually chopping clips and moving them along! Whether or not there was something I wasn't doing correctly I don't know. All I'll say is that FC
Exporting long H.264 sequences from FCP7, any tips?
by Andy Jarvis 7 years ago
Hello. I have exercise videos which are 45-minutes long ready for exporting in a FCP7 HD project (ProResLT 1920x1080 25fps). They will be used just for the web. I am aware that they will need to be he

Ryan Holmes "Andy, I think your math is a bit off" Yes, you and Spencer are both correct on that front, how embarrassing! I was a decimal point out in my calculations. Nevertheless, still very useful

Can you apply Garageband filters to FCP7?
by Andy Jarvis 7 years ago
Hello. I have a choir live performance video, and I find Garageband's reverb (the Live Performance) filter far better sounding than any of FCP's audio filters. But because Garageband only exports AIFF
Re: Can you apply Garageband filters to FCP7?
by Andy Jarvis 7 years ago
Well, because it's never been a problem before and you live and learn! I wasn't aware there was any difference between WAVs and AIFFs, and since my Zoom recorder has always recorded in WAVs and everyt
TV company wants my footage, should I ask for a fee?
by Andy Jarvis 7 years ago
Hello, I'd really appreciate some advice from someone who knows more about the TV industry than me! I am a freelance filmmaker, doing promotional videos on my DSLR, etc, mainly for the web. I have bee
Re: TV company wants my footage, should I ask for a fee?
by Andy Jarvis 7 years ago
Thanks a lot to everyone for the advice. It seems there is a general consensus that they should be paying but it's ultimately up to me to give them my terms. I have asked them for a modest fee and we'

Hello, I'd really appreciate some advice on a small conundrum I've found myself in. I am editing a music video using entirely stock footage. Most of this is NTSC, 29.97 fps, although there are also a

by Andy Jarvis 7 years ago
Thanks very much for the suggestion Spencer. I gave it a go, but unfortunately all of the clips' in and out points have changed. I imagine this is something to do with the frame rate change.

Hello, I have a real conundrum, and will be very impressed if someone can help. I am producing a live performance video for a band that uses drum machines. I would love to add the drum machines to the
Re: drum machine track not syncing with live recording - Final Cut Pro 7
by Andy Jarvis 8 years ago
Thanks Walter, I'll take a look. The drum machines the band use are midi-powered, and they've suggested this might be causing inconsistencies in timing. If this is the case, and I can see where there
