Hello - my company just purchased a Panasonic HPX170p camera and we are doing a green screen shoot very soon. Almost every video we shoot will only be intended for web. I have been reading through Barry Green's book and plan to shoot at 1080i/24pa mode. Achieving the 'film look' isn't important to me but getting a great key is. Would I be better off shooting at 1080i/30p mode? We will eventually be exporting this video with an alpha channel to be used in a flash banner ad movie on our site. Are there any scene settings I should adjust to get a better key?
My second question is about the FCP AE workflow. I want to use the Keylight plugin that is available in the new AE CS5. If I do use 1080i/24pa mode use FCP to log and capture (making sure the 'Remove Advanced Pulldown and Duplicate Frames' box is checked in the log and transfer 'import preferences' box)... are there any special considerations to take when using the quicktime move files created through log and transfer in AE?
I have read that in AE i need to 'interpret footage' - is it necessary to do that if I've already removed the advanced pulldown and duplicate frames in FCP? If it is necessary to interpret footage in AE - what do I select from the 'remove pulldown' drop down?
Thanks so much for any help and sorry for all of the questions!
