My problems with color correcting P2 footage.
by Carlos 14 years ago
I recently shot two music videos in DVCPRO50 with the HVX200 and now I am at the color correction stage. The problem is, as you might guess, that color correcting with the DVCPROP 50 codec is very lim

I just sent your suggestion to my editor and hopefully I will be able to tell you the results soon. He is currently working with Final Touch in a feature film and he is gladly surprised on how much ea

Feedback on WorkFlow solution

There are many who know their merits far better than I do. All I'm saying is, data tape is the proper way to go, if one wants to back up on tape. Video tape is the worst way to back up because it's th
Availability?
by Mike James 14 years ago
Anyone know if there is a huge backlog I've been doing a constant mental bounce between the HVX-200 and other HDV options (canon, etc). I think this is going to come down to actual availability (for m
Not available in January already?
by Carlos 14 years ago
I have a project starting the 20th of January for 4 days that is perfect for this camera, is it unrealistic to think that if I buy one in the coming weeks (put deposit)to get it before my shooting dat
HVX Pan vs. HDV 1080i vs. HDV 720p for Chroma Key
by John Frey 15 years ago
I have a lot of green bluescreen work coming up. To date, everything has been on DV Cam with fair results using Ultrakey software and virtual sets. We will be purchasing either the Sony, Canon or JVC
Re: HVX Pan vs. HDV 1080i vs. HDV 720p for Chroma Key
by Carlos 15 years ago
In my experience I got better keys with the SDX900 (DVCPRO50)coming out uncompressed SDI at 10 bits than with HD, in HDCAM or DVCPRO100 codec. Uncompressed HD in the other hand.....but I think is an o
Frame rate conversion and downconversion from HD to SDI - Help!
by Carlos 15 years ago
I will shoot next week with the Varicam in a wide range of camera speeds and shutter apertures as B-roll for a documentary. In the past, I have sent the footage to get the frame rate conversion done w

Planning a multi-camera short with DVX100
by Kristen Maxwell 15 years ago
Howdy, I'm the DP for a student project that will be shot in a style similar to the TV series "24," but we're doing this for a romantic comedy :) We'll have 3 or 4 DVX100A cameras on set, and I was wo
Re: Planning a multi-camera short with DVX100
by Carlos 15 years ago
Here are my two cents based in 5 shows as DP with similar set up: 1.Use white balance presets for all three cameras. They will match better at post, trust me. Just change from 3.2K to 5.6K 2.Try not t
Slightly OT- reel-stream for HVX-200?
by Emery 15 years ago
Obviously it would be awesome if the reel stream folks could do the same thing to the HVX as they are doing with the DVX. My question is, how does reel-stream get a 4:4:4 signal to run through USB 2.0

I have used the firewire Datavideo switcher with three cameras and the live edited version looks as good as the master tapes. It works very nicely. Carlos
basic setup advice
by alan 15 years ago
Our varicam is showing some artifacting in the image (a very fine "snow" I guess you would call it), particularly in the dark areas. All I want is a good film look to everything I shoot. We originally
