(FCP) using log and capture to record video.....2 formats at once?
on Nov 8, 2011 at 9:00:48 pm

Hi,

I own a HVX-200a (Panasonic) and Final Cut Pro Studio 2. I have a potential job where the client wants numerous days of legal video (basically one person sitting in a chair being harassed by lawyers) filmed in HD (1080). I only own 2 P2 cards, which can easily capture a full day of SD footage, but can do roughly 2 hours of HD (1080).

I am wondering if I can record to my P2 cards in SD (as a backup in 16:9 aspect ratio) AND log and capture in HD in FCP at the same time?

Any good resources on codecs so that the hard drive isn't chewing up a gig a second?


Thanks,

Gary

Thanks!

Gary

Is there any application where you can compress/encode a file on the fly?

I want to capture HD video, but do not want it to be insanely huge. I would love to capture video directly from my camera and record it as a H.264 file or MPEG 4 or MPEG2.

I know I am losing quite a bit of quality, but am just wondering if it is possible.

Can Adobe On Location do this?

Thanks!

Gary

Adobe On Location will do this. As will VeeScopeLive.

Or consider renting something like the nanorecorder, hyperdeck shuttle, citidisk, or other clip-on hard drive, passing the rentals costs on to the customer. That would let you "roll" SD on your P2 cards while recording HD to the hard drive from a tap on your camera's HDMI output or firewire connection. Then attach the hard drive to your NLE and edit directly off of it, no transfer delays. IF you're going to do a lot of deposition work, I'd recommend buying something like this, as one or two jobs would pay it off.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the reply.... I was able to look at the hyperdeck shuttle, but I do not have SDI or HDMI on my HVX-200.... Can you post a link for the other products? I couldn't find them.

Thanks,

Gary

Thanks!

Shane,

I have Adobe On Location CS4, but have never used it (HA)... I do not see any tutorials on the web, and do not see any preferences as far as capture settings.... Can I make h.264s or MPEG 4s on the fly?

Sorry for my ignorance.

Thanks!

Gary

Firewire out into a computer will only record what the camera mode is set at. If you want to record HD then, that is what you have to run to the cards AND out the FW cable.

You can't record SD and HD simultaneously.

Sorry, I have never used ON LOCATION. Time for you to do a lot of test capturing before you get to the location.

Or rent a KiPro. It has Component inputs. And no, it doesn't record to h.264, but to ProRes. Just convert that to H.264 later.

The Ki pro for rental looks like an awesome option. And conveting to H.264 later will be easy.

I'd suggest running ProRes LT on the KiPro for long record times.
