HDV to film workflow
Posted 04 August 2007 - 01:14 PM
I have no experience with HDV to film and I want to know what the workflow is.I'm assuming you end up with a DI that you use to strike an interpositive?Someone walk me through this as the last time I worked with any workflow resembling this was around 1993,and that was 16mm to 35mm.

Any more specifics than that will depend on the place you use.

It would really help to know a little more. Unless it's a documentary I would not shoot

HDV. I would try and capture to some other format even if using the Canon H1.
If you must shoot HDV then this looks like a good option.
FireWire HDV to SDI Converter
You can ingest all your tapes as ProRes (in FCP), or whatever format you want
to get away from HDV. You will also need a Kona or Decklink card to capture HDSDI.

If he wants to capture HD-SDI, the G1 has HD-SDI out, so he can capture out of that into a computer with a Kona or Declink card. He could also get an HD-SDI to HDMI converter and use an Intensity card, but he'd lose timecode.
I just don't see the purpose for the HDV to HD-SDI converter, as it isn't going to make HDV look like HD-SDI. And he if he doesn't want to edit in HDV, he transcode in his NLE. But perhaps I'm missing something, it happens oftern .

but it is not cheap.
It's called the "Flash XDR" and gives you 2.5 hours recording on a
much less compressed format than HDV.
Maybe worth a look, and might be able to be rented soon?
