special case: HDV or DV
Posted 25 June 2008 - 05:45 AM
maybe someone can help me:
I shoot a short film for filmschool with the Canon XHA1 and the Letus Extreme Adapter.
Unfortunately the postproduction, editing and color correction will be made in in DV.
What do you think: Will I get better results shooting DV 16/9 or shooting HDV and downcovert the footage. I got good results converting HDV footage with mpegStreamclip so far.
Color correction will be made with Apple´s Color.
Thanks in advance,

Why DV though?
What I had done for an HDV project and color correction was export it all uncompressed from FCP (after edit which FCP did natively) and then we threw it on HDCam and did a tape to tape, looked fantastic!
For apple color, realizing it's a lot of processing, but you could at least export as prores and grade that? then downconvert to DV AFTER your color correction session?

Because they are total idiots.
The Workflow you described is exactly what I would do too.
But they say, everything has to be done in DV, it´s senseless...

See if you can canjole them to do an export, then as uncompressed SD before it goes to color. You'd have to go through it and put back in cuts, but it'll help a bit with the program.
