Sony PMW-F3 Frame Record and Freeze Mix
on Feb 18, 2013 at 11:25:47 pm

Hello, I have a client that would like to shoot a 30 sec. animated spot. I'm thinking the F3 with it's FRAME REC feature would be great. They also need to be able to review the previous frame to set up the next frame. FREEZE MIX would be perfect! The thing I'm initially encountering however, is that it's EXTREMELY cumbersome to use the FREEZE MIX feature, when you're in FRAME REC mode. This seems completely counter intuitive for how it SHOULD work, since these features seem to go hand in hand. Is there a quick and simple way to review the previous frame with FREEZE MIX, when the camera is in FRAME REC mode? I can't seem to get it to work. I need to turn FRAME REC off in order to review the previous clip and then hit my assigned button for FREEZE MIX. After the frame is set, you then have to dig back into the menus to turn FRAME REC back on to pop the next frame. This just doesn't seem right. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks!
