I am a film student and new to the HVX200. I haven't had it long but need to shoot a student film in the next few weeks. I ask this to all of you with WAY more experience; what should I shoot in? 1080/24p, 1080/24pa, 720/24p/30p/60p? Which of these has the easiest workflow with final cut?
Thanks for your input. I actually have the firestore fs-100 so I use that instead of P2 cards (though I do have those too). For some reason when I try to shoot in PN mode it doesn't pick up audio. Also, since I use the firestore I usually set it to Quicktime since I edit in FCP, so I never use log and transfer, since its a .mov I just import into FCP. Should I be setting the firstore to P2? Is there a difference? Also, by any chance have you done any tutorials on hvx200 usage. Ive read through the book, but I'm much better with visual learning. Thanks again for the help.
I have another question for you. I apologize for being a noob. I think I will be shooting my movie at 720/24p (using the fs-100 so that will be where its pn) but in 'scene file' what should the frame rate be set to? I know 24p is for 24 fps, so im confused how you can have it set to 720/24p but still be in 60 fps. Should i be changing the frame rate to 24 fps as well?
