Best workflow for HDV / blackmagic ??
on Apr 2, 2010 at 8:09:50 pm

I posted this already in the FCPÑ forum, but no one answered, so i hope u guys can help me out...

Last week I was hired to produce a 1 hour TV weekly show. We are going to shoot in HDV.

We will edit by using Final Cut's multiclip capabilities in an HDV codec sequence (or Apple intermediate codec, whatever works best), and then adding the graphics (animation codec) on top of that.

The client wants to have an HD quality master delivered in a Hard Drive, but we also have to do a SD tape out in DVCAM for the broadcast station.

I'm evaluating the posibility to buy a Blackmagic Studio card so that I can output that HDV sequence to DVCAM in realtime without having to render it.

Will this work?
Will the Black Magic Card help my system output realtime via firewire?
Will it only output via analog connections?
Will I have to change to ProRes in order to have realtime?


We would like to keep the small HDV file size if possible, Pro Res is far heavier.

Any advice would be awesome, so please feel free to do so.

Thanks a lot in advance
