Help with Setups for DVX100a PAL footage
on Jul 21, 2009 at 2:21:30 am

OK - new FCP user here - I'm hoping someone can put me out of my misery!! I've trolled the forums looking for answers, so forgive me if this (presumably basic) query has been covered, but I couldn't find it.

3 main questions:

1. I'm shooting on the DVX100a predominantly in 25P with either Squeeze mode or the Anamorphic converter. When I digitize footage into FCP6 - which Setup should I use - "DVX Anamorphic" or "DV PAL Anamorphic"? What is the difference?

2. On some shoots, due to low light issues, I've shot some scenes in 50i. Do I have to bring this footage in separately with different settings (I normally capture the whole tape and subclip later). If 50i needs different settings - what are they? How will the timeline cope with this? - I was intending to de-interlace it anyway.

3. I discovered the "DVX Anamorphic" setup after already bringing in footage setup as "DV PAL Anamorphic". The footage I've now brought in on the DVX setting won't play in the viewer, canvas, or timeline -yet I've checked it is in the hard drive and plays back as a quicktime if I just click on it from there.

Any help would be so much appreciated.

1- DVX PAL Anamorphic

2- Capture with the same settings, won't make a difference.

3- Reload the Easy Setup.

Ah - Noah - Thanks for this mate, and may I say I've enjoyed reading a lot of your contributions over time, and will be purchasing some of your guides.

Still can't make the last lot of footage (the only one I correctly set up as DVX Anamorphic) play back - any ideas? Should I (oh please no!) just start again and re-dig all my footage back in set up with DVX Anamorphic?

And out of curiosity - what is the difference between the 2 different set ups?

Thanks again for your help.

Yes- re-dig. No shame in that.

Re Dig - Noooooooo!!!!! (voice and action slow down to super slo mo....)

Alright, well lesson learnt. Thanks so much for your help - really appreciated.

I presume the DV PAL Anamorphic setting is for all other DV camera shot with ana? Why is the DVX different / warrants it's own setting?

Hey Noah,

What should field dominance be set to in sequence settings for this footage (25P)? - Lower/even, or none?

If set to none - what will that do to the bits of interlaced footage brought into the timeline?

Cheers,

J

25p should be none- the interlaced pieces will still look interlaced.
