P2 / BM Intensity / Data Rate
on May 26, 2010 at 2:53:30 am


I have to preface this post by saying I think I have made a cardinal sin in forum terms by admitting I have posted this same post on another forum, but without response, so I'll try here if you all don't mind.

I recently bought a Panasonic AG-HPX302en (Australia) running FCP 7.0.2

Setting cam to AVC Intra 100 25p

In Audio/Settings I choose the following:

Sequence Preset: Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) 1920 x 1080 25p 48KHz

Capture Preset: Blackmagic HDTV 1080i uncompressed

After I've ingested footage into FCP, the browser is showing that the clip's Data Rate is 13.9 MB/sec

Is this a bit low?

If anyone uses the Intensity card, is there another Capture Preset I should be using or is this FCP's way using ProRes to reduce / compress the footage.

In FCP the drop down window for the Capture Preset doesn't really give me a lot of options, I think the HDTV 1080i 50 is about the best option, but I'm sure that's dropping the data rate.

The BM card is only 8 bit I know, but it's not like I'm using the BM to capture the footage, I use it only to monitor with a 32" Panny LCD TV

That said, I have captured 8 bit uncompressed video via HDMI and a Canon HF 10 and that shows up at a data rate of 99 - 101 MB/sec

Any ideas would be welcome, thanks

I don't think 13MB per second is bad actually... now that being said, 13Mb per second would be horrible!

Let's not get bits and bytes mixed up.
13MBps is roughly 100mbps, so what's bad about that again?

Are you caturing or log and transfer?

If log and transfer, what you areseeingbis fine as AVC-Intra 100 is 100mbps, or around 14MBytes per second as has been mentioned.
