bad pans on my ex1 and ex3
on Aug 26, 2008 at 1:26:29 pm

I decided to do a test at home with the ex1 and the ex3 on hdv and HD also 720p

They all come out with the same problem on the pan, some slight hardly visable line going from top to bottom.

There are 2 hperlinks here, 1 is for the exported hd wmv file to look at and the other is the original 20 second file clip that you can download and play on sony ex clip browser,

All I can say at the momment is that the ex1 and ex3 cant pan, shocking. next time a client ask for a pan I will have to say sorry no can do!

Please follow this link to download the hd wmv file

Quick Link: for wmv HD

and you are seeing this line HOW?

The WMV is not available but your source clip is. If you're playing in ClipBrowser, XDCAM Transfer Tool, NLE, it is being scaled. Full screen on my 23" Apple Cinema Display it looks fine. I haven't checked on my 46" HDTV yet though.

I'd also ask why are you shooting HDV? Why would you want to risk breaking the codec?

If you aren't monitoring it properly you really can't claim the accuracy of what you're seeing. I certainly wouldn't accept a WMV as verification either because not all compression software or would be compressioinist understand how to compress.
