Sony Z1 Footage and AJA KONA 3? Best way to capture and edit within FCP 5.0.4?
on Oct 7, 2006 at 10:58:48 pm

I've heard it's difficult working with HDV footage? Apparently it's easier to capture as DVCPRO-HD? Is this true?
I don't have a deck... just the Sony Z1 camera.
Once I'm finished, I want to output to standard definition DVD.
Does anyone have experience editing/outputting footage from this camera?
specifics would be great as I'm learning.

thanks,
Michael

If you have a Kona LH or LHe, you can take the HD Out Y, Pb Pr off the side of your Sony HVRM
VTR, and capture right into the Kona card, any compression format you like. That's not hard. And if you have the Kona 2 or Kona 3, get the AJA HD10A or HD10AVA, and convert the analog HD to HD-SDI, and capture right into the Kona, at any compression ratio you like. That's not hard either. But don't ask me about capturing via firewire - not if you are a Kona owner !
