Hi! I was watching a pro video production company do some interviews and they were running the live video from their camera directly into a MacBook Pro where the video was being encoded live (I think). The live video was running in a delay. I am still a newbie and trying to understand everything I am seeing and learning.
Why would you want to do this? Why not take the SD card from the camera and just edit the video later? Is it more to do with mixing in the audio? Does this make it easier later in post while editing?
Without fully understanding what is going on, I am assuming this is a good thing to be doing, so what would one need (from a technology standpoint) to make this happen? Camera, MacBook Pro...
Your thoughts would be appreciated. Go easy on me, I still have much to learn.
