Nature and Cars Oh my

Shot this yesterday in 24f. Sorry for the shaky shots but I was riding my bike from place to place and could only carry my cheap tripod! I also booted the saturation to compensate for quicktimes loss. This is how the colors look on my FCP screen.

Nice. Thanks for those shots. The camera seems to have better latitude than I expected.

Joe, just wanted to thank and compliment you on this and the night clip you previously posted. Even though they are simply demo clips, your obviously artistic flair and skill with the camera come through clearly. Many thanks!

Thanks guys! I've been out shooting a lot trying to get use to this new camera. It's footage is impresive! The moving shot was done with the Glide Cam 2000 pro.

Joe:

Very nice work. I just picked up my A1 today and am waiting for the weather to get a bit nicer before I venture out (I'm in Oregon).

Question: I am rather new to encoding with Quicktime. What settings did you use to get your video down to that size file and still have it look so good?
I have Adobe Premier Pro 2.0 and I aslo have Quicktime Pro. Your settings would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Seems to me the one time I was in New Braunfels was the one time I ever white water rafted, on the Nachadoches River? I still carry the memory from about 1980, sleeping under the open skies in the bed of a pickup, many friends, lots and lots of people too...huge fun.

Sorry if I butchered the spelling of the river...

There's a lake and a town by the name of Nacogdoches. It's in an eastern part of the state that we call New Louisiana.

It's the Rio Guadalupe that barrels through New Braunfels; and going up the map, there's Rio Blanco which loses its names at its confluence with Rio San Marcos just east of that town; Rio Colorado is Town Lake for a little while as it glides along the southern edge of downtown Austin; further on is Rio Brazos dividing Waco. Anybody who lives north of there is a Yankee.

Very cool Joe, I appreciate you taking the time to type in the settings.
What program do you use to edit and the footage and then create the QT?

FYI - I am using PPRo 2.0 with Cineform Aspect HD.

Thanks Devon from bringing this discussion back on topic after my wayward deviations above. As indicated in the first post at the top, Joe is using Apple's Final Cut Pro.

For Joe -- don't think I've said it yet -- count me in as a fan of your work -- thanks for sharing these clips with us, they're very cool!
