Cinema Desktop Preview image problem
by Andy Schroeder 6 years ago
I'm currently using my 42" Panasonic LCD HDTV for Cinema Desktop Preview by outputting from my Macbook Pro's DVI output via DVI to HDMI cable to HDMI input on the TV. I know I can't trust it for prope

I never found a fix to this outside of raising the black level a couple percent when editing and removing that before export. I didn't really want to do that, but at the end of the day "remove all att

Anyone have a problem with the Nikon 3200 just stopping during video recording When this happens nothing is on the card and the camera seems "stuck." I have to take the battery out and then re-insert
Re: nikon 3200 quits during video recording??!!

I only had it happen to me once. This was an issue that a recent firmware update supposedly fixed. I've used this camera extensively during the last year and a half, you can search here for other issu
Nikon D3200 and low light flicker

I recently upgraded from the Nikon D3100 to the D3200 for video and have been doing a lot of test shoots to decide on light setups for a new project I'm going to be filming in the fall. I've been real
Re: Flicker Fix for Certain Shots
by Andy Schroeder 6 years ago
Yes, even in full manual the problem persists. Even at ISO200 on a sunny day you'll get flicker in the 0-10% range on the waveform. I find it funny that Nikon still never came back with any fix, yet t

I was looking at this lens as it has got good reviews all around. My only concern is the manual focus doesnt seem to be conducive with shooting video. Anyone with any experience shooting video and rol
Re: Tokina 11-16
by Andy Schroeder 7 years ago
I use this lens for video a fair amount with my Nikon D3200, and before that with my D3100. I really only ever shoot video with manual focus, so the lack of auto on it didn't bother me. In fact, I app

They were on for probably about an hour during the shoot.. It wasn't always noticeable either, mostly in the darker areas. But I'm fairly confident that it's not a camera problem as my blacks stayed b

rotoscoping + intuos 4

My current project requires a lot of rotoscoping. Previously I hadn't had to do large amounts of roto and using the mouse for it in Apple Motion 3 worked fine, but it's been killing me, I thought mayb
Re: rotoscoping + intuos 4
by Andy Schroeder 9 years ago
Thanks again for the replies everyone. The footage was shot on a Nikon D7000, and then transcoded into ProRes HQ for editing and vfx. If I put it in a lower codec for roto would I just export the fini
saving motion properties in text presets

I'm trying to save a text template I made with drop shadow, but anytime I save it as a favorite effect nothing from the motion properties tab is saved. Is there a way to save motion properties along w

Just save the text file with all it's effects and motion tab settings as a clip in your browser. Then edit this clip in as needed, and modify the text or whatever once a new instance of it is in the s
DVX100 24p Advanced vs. Magic Bullet Frames
by jojo galan 9 years ago
Hello, I am a new user of the DVX100B. It's great!! I was wondering if there was a difference between using the DVX100 24p in camera or using a post editing 24p program like Magic Bullet Frames The re
Re: DVX100 24p Advanced vs. Magic Bullet Frames
by Andy Schroeder 9 years ago
If you shoot at 30p then import that footage into a 23.98 timeline and set it's speed to 80% you can get frame for frame full resolution slow motion from the DVX100. It looks really smooth, but it's n
DVX100A: Anamorphic Capture Trouble

Hi there I am having a problem capturing from my DVX100A PAL to FCP using the PAL anamorphic capture setting. The DVX100A is set to Squeeze mode because I've been instructed to use this setting when f
Re: DVX100A: Anamorphic Capture Trouble
by Andy Schroeder 10 years ago
In FCP you could always import the squeezed footage as 4:3 (which is how it is stored on the tape anyway) and after it is imported go to clip properties and check the "anamorphic" box which will then
DVX-100A/budget questions
by Joshua Long 11 years ago
I'm a budding freelance videographer and I am in need of a professional camera. I know that the DVX-100A is a good camera (if not maybe a bit out dated) and I have one at my disposal for $2000. Is thi
Re: DVX-100A/budget questions
by Andy Schroeder 11 years ago
Not a good deal. The DVX's are great cameras in my opinion, as long as HD isn't a big deal for you. For me it's not, my main video output is the web. I bought a DVX100b last year along with a good tri
To transcode, or not to transcode DV?
by Andy Schroeder 11 years ago
On my last project I shot in DV, I did all my edits in FCP6 with the codec set to DV, and round-tripped the clips that needed FX into Motion 3. After the round trips the footage needed to be rendered

Thanks for the advice, as I also said to chadwick, this sounds like the right solution for my issue. The extra pointers you added on are also on a post-it on my monitor now.

Re: 8bit to 32bit floating
by Rafael Amador 11 years ago
Hi Andy, Enable High Quality (High Precision) in FC makes sense if you change also your sequence codec. If you are rendering DV footage, you need to set your sequence to DV50, 8b Unc or, better, Prore

Definitely "No", do NOT shoot on a black screen. You'll be keying out all the shadows and dark tones in your color spectrum... that would be a mistake. Shoot green if you have it. You hit the nail on

by Jan Crittenden Livingston 11 years ago
This isn't a bug, your HVX is sick and needs to see a service center. Good news is that you have a 1 year warranty. Find your invoice and make a copy of it to send it in with the camera. Best, JanJan
