is this workflow ok?
on Jun 23, 2010 at 3:01:47 pm

I am making a film with footage from a Sony Z1 and a Sony AVCHD camera
I am editing in a 1080i50 sequence

I am log & capturing the HDV material from the Z1, with easy setup (format-HD. Use- 1080i50)

The AVCHD files I am converting to HDV 1080i50, at 24fps and size 1440x1080HD using Roxio Toast

I edit on Final Cut 6.0.1 on a Macbook Pro Intel Core 2 Duo 2.33ghz

How does this sound?

Mark :)

Hi Mark,
No too good for me.
You are converting a very compressed footage to an even more compressed format. No.
Go to Prores.
About Toast, this is not an application for this task.
About the size (1440). which is your final delivery format?

Hi Rafael,
I don't know any other way of converting the footage other that using toast- log and transfer doesn't work for some reason

It has to be converted as I need all the material to be the same codec etc (as i am doing multicam)

So do you think I should convert the AVCHD to ProRes422 in Toast? and capture the HDV from the Z1 as ProRes422?

and edit in a proress422 sequence?

I'm not sure about my delivery format.. I just need to get it onto DVD..

thanks, James

Well, before you haven't said that you are working multicam, neither that Log&Capture doesn't works.
If you have to convert the footage to a common codec: Prores

Make your self a favor and update FC. The 6.0.1 is one of the buggiest ever released version.
That may be the reason that your log&capture doesn't works.

sorry yes i forgot to put that in the original post

i'm going to try doing what you say, and convert it all to prores. will burn a little bit to dvd and see if that looks better than having everything as hdv

thanks for the help

Mixing 25fps at 50i, and 24fps doesn't sound fun either.

Sure.
As Shane says, absolutely avoid mixng two different time-base footage.

oh right, i didn't realise that would be a problem. how about if i capture the hdv as prores422 1440x1080 25fps, and convert the avchd in toast to prores422 1440x1080 25fps?

how would you go about getting this onto DVD?

as im sure you can tell, im a bit of a novice at all of this!

[Mark Lewis] " and convert the avchd in toast to prores422 1440x1080 25fps? "
Changing time-base is a critic operation and I do't think toast is the best tool to do so.
Convert your AVCHD footage to Prores keeping the 24p time base.
Then conform the footage to p25 with CinemaTools.
