I have a client that I shoot ending tags for and then I send them out to another company that produces the ads with my tags. They scale down the shots to fit in addresses and logos at the end of the spots. I shot the tag for the 1st time yesterday with my new HPX-170. I shot in 480 60i. The footage looks amazing until they scale it down. When it scales down, it gets blurry and looks awful. Is there some setting in the camera that I need to change for this? I shot in Film mode, do I need to shoot in Video mode? Should I just shoot in 30p instead of 60i??
There is no need to shoot in HD for these spots. I appreciate any ideas.
the spot is not being scaled down, it is deliverd in standard definition 4x3. I am saying that the shot that I have, I give them full frame 4x3 100% standard def and then they they shrink the shot to about 45% or so and when they do that, the shot gets blurry and does not look good.
Yes someone else told me about using an even rounded number on a rescale, so I will have to forward that info on.. They are exporting the spots out of FCP and that is what I am exporting my clips out of. I am going to shoot progressive at DVC50 next time and see what happens. I shot Interlaced at DVCPro last time..
