Svyatoslav, can't check out your clips since I'm not on FCS2 but have been really wanting to see some HV20 Intensity footage. I'm wondering if you could post some footage in another codec such as Photo JPEG (quality set to 75% or better)? I would check out http://www.mediafire.com/ for free file sharing also, it doesn't have the limits that Rapidshare has.

Ok! I will do it, does not think although, that Photo JPEG is a good codec.
Sense was exactly in that, to show work of ProRes. Can it be better to save now without encoding?
Recently did a trick - created a virtual disk in memory and wrote down straight in it via HDMI by Blackmagic Media Express: UNCOMPRESSED.
I was shocked - 1G/s. Phenomenal quality.
Now I will give a grand-dad my Cinealta :) I will shoot the next commercial straight in memory by two HV20 and Blackmagic On-Air 2.0.

Wes, please, how you do it:
"Converting 60i to 60p
1440x540 effective resolution 60p footage can be extracted from a 60i 1440x1080 stream by de-interlacing 60i footage and preserving each field as an individual frame." http://www.vasher.com/v4/v4_more.php?id=98_0_3_0_M4

P.S. If interestingly, look here:

Svyatoslav, Photo-JPEG is a very good as long as you compress to a quality setting of 75% or higher. Good for posting high quality clips at reasonable sizes. I only suggest it because not everyone has FCS2. :(

If you shoot 60i you can seperate each field and make that into a frame, thus getting lower resolution 60p video from your HV20 (or any other 60i camera for that matter). Which is good for slow motion and other effects.

Svyatoslav, outstanding shot! The cigar smoke would really challenge the MPEG2 compressor but the Intensity capture just looks silky smooth. Great job and thanks for posting the clip. Was this in TV mode?

Thanx. Yes, Tv mode 1/48.
Only one trick: I used a polarization filter, to reduce the specks of light on the skin.

This is great to see! Proves how much nicer pure 4:2:2 is compared to 4:2:0.

I've captured raw 4:2:2 out of the HV20 too, but used a 35mm adapter, so it's nice to see this uber-sharp pure footage. Thanks for sharing!

Very nice. Really shows how badly HDV mucks-up what the sensor is capable of capturing. Just reinforces that I'm going to have to shoot tethered. :-(

PS. Do you think you could post an uncompressed, full-res still? (PNG, TIF)

Here a few movies by duration of 1s. Written down in RAM and HDD by FCP and BME(Blackmagic Media Express). UNCOMPRESSED. It is initial files and it's necessary to do pull-down and deinterlacing. Weather terms are bad although, but quality is visible:

The detail is just phenomenal. So clean. If this camera had true manual controls, it would be an indie dream machine.
