Mixing footage for project. Have footage that is True 1920 X 1080. My other footage is off HV40. It captures at 1440 X 1080. What is best way to handle hv40 footage in a project like this. This is documentary that I will be looking for DVD/Cable deal.
Saves at 1440 x 1080i and shows at 1920 x 1080 (Anamorphic) It records at 1920 x 1080p. Have been using the HV20 same set up as HV20/30/40 , no problem for 3.5 years use editing in Premiere Pro .It is capable of playback recordings from high end pro camcorders Canon XL H1, XH G1 and XhA 1.
An amazing unit.
The HDV format uses MPEG2 compression at a bit rate of up to 25 Mbps and records 1920 x 1080 interlaced video. This compares to AVCHD’s 1440 x 1080i using MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 compression at a maximum 18 Mbps. Spec-wise, HDV has a clear lead and in real-world recording, you can definitely see the difference but I must stress AVCHD is far better than traditional standard-def video. The main issue I have with HDV is the fact it’s a tape-based system in a hard-drive, flash-memory world. With that on the table, let’s see how it holds up…
Probably worth a look. I believe it records at 1920x1080P and as I said saves at 1440 x1080i on a Sony Bravia 46' HD TV depending on the quality of subject and skill of the operator it is equal to and at times better than broadcast TV ?
