Ok, that was priceless. If that "sumbitch" was a Shetland Sheepdog, then I have scars on my leg to prove they're just as ornery as depicted :-) Not even an 11 year old (it was a while ago) paddling the old banana seat bike at 1000 rpm could escape it's fierce jaws.

You made me laugh out loud...repeatedly :-)

That must have taken a lot of balls dude! Totally funny and good quality! Liked that opening rack focus shot.

Thanks guys.:) I just rolled off about 6 minutes of footage of my pal Joey at twilight. He was going a little crazy with all the neighborhood "chat" that evening, so I just had to get a little verite' footage of the moment. ;)

Tomas--I basically shot with the pedestal a little low, Cinegamma2, sharpness -3 and most everything else neutral. Just a few tweaks in post and that was it.

Glad it was mildly amusing. :)

Dennis--I'm dying to try a Brevis at some point. I would love to test it with full uncompressed capture and HDV and compare the two.

compression settings?

Barlow,
I am a newbee
what was your workflow to get that video on the web looking so great?
I am using final cut pro and filmed a scene in 24f any suggestions.
I have tried to export as a self contained quicktime movie but the final product looks like garbage in the wrong viewing aspect ratio?

Where in UT?

That looks like Spanish Fark with Timp in the background? I'm deep in the heart of Sugarhouse.

Cute video. Just got the A1 last weekend and have shot some tape of the kids but not had time to edit yet.

Regards,
Steve

Hi Richard,

I usually do my image tweaks in an HDV 24F timeline, and then when I'm happy with the edit I copy/paste the sequence into a custom sequence using a high quality intermediate codec. I tend to use the Sheer lossless codec which I purchased as an add-on QT codec to use with FCP. I set the image dimensions as 1920x1080 and thankfully FCP automatically knows to convert the anamorphic 1440x1080 HDV material into square pixel 1920x1080.

I skip the whole HDV conform process and simply render and export a self-contained Sheer 1080 clip. This is what I use as a master to encode h.264 from.

The nice thing about this workflow is that I don't need to capture into an intermediate format that takes up a lot of storage, but in the end I still get the benefits of bypassing HDV for final product.

I've come to the conclusion that my buddy Joey needs a slice of pizza for that performance! :-D

So, the next time I buy some pizza, I'm coming over to share with Joey... And I guess Barlow can have a slice too! :-)

I hadn't noticed Timp in the background before... Shows you how much I paid attention to the yard!

LMAO. Nice one Barlow. I don't know how I missed it when you first posted it.

So, are you running with both an A1 and and H1 now? Or did you sell the H1?

No apologies necessary, Barlow. Any dog lover such as myself can quickly identify with that humor. Nice job!
