Hi,

I have an upcoming shoot using Red One, in which the lead character keeps using a camcorder to shoot himself and others. For the Camcorder POV, we are planning to use either HVX 200 or some other HD camcorder.
For Camcorder POV shots, how can we show the camcorder screen that has all the necessary information displayed (Time, duration etc.,) and shows "REC" on the screen ?

Please advise.

Thanks in advance.

Those can easily be added in Final Cut Pro or any other NLE. They tend to be under the "video effects" or you can just record off of the video feed that you'd normally send to a monitor for the director... though I would think that might be too specific to a camera... so check what effects are available to you in your editing suite.

You'd probably want After Effects for that, I think it's got a number generator, and you can select the appropriate typeface and whatnot. You might need to create some custom graphics for it as well.
