This is sad news indeed. As of now there is no word from Apple about DVD SP upgrade or future availability, but there is new FCP-X, which is mostly a glorified iMovie. If this is indeed the end for ou

Canon 5D, Mpeg Streamclip, Interlaced Scaling?
by Sean Bauer 9 years ago
I recently shot a feature on Canon's 5D and I have been importing and converting footage to Apple ProRes for Final Cut, using Mpeg Streanclip. After converting 75% of the footage, I realized that I wa

Take a close look at your ProRes clips and check for interlaced artifacts. My guess is that you're fine, and I wouldn't worry about the other check boxes. Deinterlace - Don't use it because your 5D fo

converting interlaced video to progressive in FCP

So I am working with 1080i 60 footage filmed in ACVHD on a Panasonic hdc tm300. I understand that computer monitors do not display interlaced video correctly but the end goal for this edit is youtube
Re: converting interlaced video to progressive in FCP

I've had pretty good luck using Compressor to deinterlace footage. It takes a lot longer, but the quality has been good, as long as you use the best settings on everything (some times you can get away
7D hand held rigs
by Peter Sensor 11 years ago
Faced with spending even more money with Zacuto, while I re-invent the wheel, I didn't like any of the hand held rig options - they seemed a bit klunky. I'm not a young guy, so I've got old stuff arou

I second the Indifocus stuff. Inexpensive, but pretty nice to work with. I went that route and don't regret it. If I had a bigger budget I would go with something a bit more accurate and flexible, but

Yeah, sadly I was under prepared. The client had about 12 'investors' standing around during the shoot, and there were reflections everywhere. After a while I got fed up enough to tell them where to g

Yikes! That is a long render. That definitely hasn't been my experience. MPEG Streamclip is one of the coolest programs I've ever used, and it's free. I use it a lot, but typically I use Compressor fo

Those steppy edges really ticked me off the day I bought my 7D! I shot at 720 60p, and every straight line had jaggies! It's called aliasing, and it has to do with how the imaging chip samples a scene
