IN-CAMERA IMAGE SETTINGS
Posted 26 October 2007 - 12:55 PM
So far, I have kept all of my in-camera settings at zero, because everything that I have read says that touching those settings will cause artifacts or a general degradation of the image. What I have read suggests making those corrections in post. I also keep my V-Detail set to "thin. All of my footage has been shot in 24p advanced mode, and edited in a 24p timeline, in Vegas 7.
Is this flatness inherent in the DVX, or should I correct the in-camera settings?

Does Vegas include a waveform tool? Record some color bars with your camera, then some test footage with subjects that include clipped whites, complete blacks, and properly exposed scenes to see where they fall on the waveform.

I did some reading on the difference in analog broadcast vs. digital settings, and I realized my mistake. Thank you for pointing that out.
