I have a dvcpro tape that ripped as I was pulling it out of our camcorder. I need to repair it. In the past I have just taken scotch tape and while I get a hit at that moment i can still recover the tape. Is there a better way to do this?
I am torn (no pun intended) between capturing in DVCPro HD or through the SDI output of the deck to my capture card and then real-time transcoding to ProRes. I know at the end of the day only the most technical and sensitive will be able to tell but since this is supposed to be a master, I want the best quality possible. Would capturing as ProRes give me an more latitude and help with compression concatenation or not?
