After updating 2014 MacMini to El Capitan 10.11.1 I cannot mount my G-RAID 8TB USB 3 drive. The drive WILL mount via Firewire800, but that's too slow for my video editing. (I know I can use Thunderbol

48K 16 is best for smoother use. Also delete all your audio renders for that sequence using Tools Render Manager and then see if it plays properly. Then render all your audio. After that you can also

Re: shooting with 24p and 60p together...
by William Carr 6 years ago
FYI what I learned when shooting at 720p 60 to get slo-mo shots for a 24p project (with my GH2) was you need to use a minimum shutter speed of 125 or things can look wacky bad.

Re: High ISO low light video test Canon 60d vs gh2

While you are researching test results, consider that if you buy a gh3 rather than a gh2 and use with 1.4 lens, it is essentially a best possible low light combination for this price category.

I'd give a +1 for ProRes. XDCAM is a long GOP codec. I believe XDCAM35 is like XDCAM50 - 15 frames per group of pictures. I had similar issues with XDCAM50, but using ProRes made things pretty stable.
