Advice: EX1 with Canon GL2
Posted 02 December 2008 - 10:36 PM
Anyway, I'm trying to put together some shooting scheme that actually lets me cut something in FCP. I have this EX1, plus my old Canon GL2 which I could hopefully put on a tripod to shoot a wide shot and mix this footage with whatever I can get from the EX1.
Would anyone out there have a recommendation on how to dumb down the EX1 quality setting to sort of match the GL2. I have no idea what the GL2 shoots, just going to guess it's 29.97. The only interlaced setting on the EX1 is at 1080/60i. It looks kind of video-ish to my eyes, like it might work with the GL. Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.

I'd think the closest would be 720/60 in SQ mode. . .Don't quote me on that though; as my EX rarely leaves 1080/24 'cept for "high speed" stuff.
Thanks, Adrian. That's what I was thinking.
I'd just go ahead and try it but I still can't figure out how to open these EX1 files in FCP. Got to page 57 of the FCP For Dummies book and still can't get it to work!
