Paul -- AOK on using the Technicolor suggested minimal saturation, etc., settings in the camera along with their S-curve LUT in Post when using output from the camera codec (the .mov files on the Compact Flash).

What I am after is seeing if by capturing what comes out of the Canon 1D IV's HDMI port, you can get better (by some measurement) images.

The Blackmagic folks suggested hooking up the camera to a TV & asking the TV what it saw. The TV said it saw 1080i coming out of the Canon 1D IV's HDMI port. Since the Hyperdeck captures whatever it sees in the same format as what it sees, I'm guessing the Capture000, etc., files that the Hyperdeck records from the 1D IV are 1080i.

If you used the Hyperdeck with, say, a Nikon, you might get different format files captured, since the Hyperdeck does a bit-for-bit capture of whatever comes into its HDMI input port. I suspect if it saw a Starbuck's latte on its HDMI input port, it'd copy that to the SSD inserted.

So the question is: do the Capture000, etc., files need to be deinterlaced ? Or what else do you need to do to them before processing with Final Cut 7 or Final Cut X ?

Thanks in advance --
