HVX Ramping, Shooting in revers
Posted 26 March 2006 - 04:01 AM
I hear that you can ramp with eh HVX with different frame rates.
My real question is this, can i somehow shoot in revers, so when im in FCP captuering in 24f, it will be entirly in revers? Thanks.. Sorry if this is a ignorant question..

thats the bad news.
The good news is that time remap in post has been possible for as long as I have been in the business (I am very young, I cant recall a time without computers) Time remap basicly selects which frames are used in the final output, and blends the rest. It does this based on a mathematical input that you provide. This lets you do ramps with infanantly variable presets. You can also time your remaps to hit certain points of action. If you want the film to hit full slow mo at a certain point of action (say a punch or explosion) it is possible to define down to the frame where that happens. (much more control than a physical camera timming unit) the problem is that since it is dropping frames, everything is shot somewhere at 1/60sec at full 360 degree shutter. that means that if you do a time re-map, in effect you are changing the shutter angle as the, something I dont think a proper ramp would have. Its not a big deal, but understand at the beginning of the remap you will have the effect of a 270-300 degree shutter and end up with a 360 degree shutter (of course this depends on your settings, but apparent shutter angle will change over time) as long as you understand and plan for this, you will be fine.
use programs like after effects to do the remap.
