I have a DVX100a and I'd like to know if there is a "best settings" if I wanted to later use the footage in FCP in slow motion. In other words, if I'm taping a dance and I'd like it to show most smoothly if I reduce the speed and then author?
something i saw and tried and looked alright surprisngly (but im no pro). Shoot in 60i at a shutter speed of at least 120. Then you got to time stretch it in adobe to your correct 25frame rate. Seems sweet(compared to what i use to do, ie just slow the time duration in premiere). But would like to hear other peoples opinions.
well im from the UK so use pal, so really i use 50i I believe. But basically, i had troubles to untill I realised that for me it didnt specifically say that it was in 50 i mode. What you got to do is simply go into the menu, find the option that states whether you want to shoot in progressive mode or not. Then deselect it. That way you should then be shooting 50/60i interlaced which is what I think looks best. (I do have an ag-dvx100b), but I assume they would be roughly the same. :)
