Re: New HD Demo Reel

I put it on this site so people they can watch it in HD if they wish (becuase the reel is still in beta). I am on a slow DSL connection and I have to wait around 10 seconds until enough is downloaded

Re: Show Reel
by Brandon Lima 11 years ago
From my experience it should be under 3 minutes long. It should demonstrate what you are capable of creating, music is key. The right music makes a great show reel! Good luck, and I would love to see

Do you know of a good tutorial about how to use meta data for the HV200, I have tried to figure it out but always end up failing. No projects have come up where I need it, hinting the reason for not l

I suspect many of us are capable of fulfilling the requirements. At a quick look I didn't see anything I lacked, I was commenting because the amount of qualifications required were substantial. -Brand

Hi, I am basically trying to find the best way of archiving rushes shot on P2 (in various formats) without necessarily playing everything out to tape. I have obviously checked some of the other posts
Re: Archiving P2 content options
by Brandon Lima 11 years ago
I would agree, I am in the process of archiving P2 footage and came up with LTO 4 as the best option. Still haven't bought the tape drive yet. Anyone have any other ideas Thanks- -Brandon

by Brandon Lima 11 years ago
You need to set the HVX200 on the right settings to see the cards as an external disk. Also you need to copy the entire "content" folder from the P2 card otherwise FCP will not be happy. Also you need

by Vince Becquiot 11 years ago
