AVC-Intra to ProRes422 (HQ) or Normal ProRes?
by Doug Nichol 11 years ago
How much of a visual difference is there between the normal ProRes 422 and the (HQ) version I just realized my "Log and Transfer" from AVC-Intra was set to "normal" rather than "HQ". I took in 105G of

I've been having a real problem of getting p2 footage (shot AVC-Intra 24p with the HPX-3000) off of the P2 cards and on to my computer (MacPro Intel). I believe the root of the problem is a "disk perm

Re: Camera Cover HPX3000
by Doug Nichol 11 years ago
I have the Kata and like it a lot. Sometimes the camera does get a bit hot, but I just unzip the glove a bit at the top (near the vent) and it's fine.
