Rotating Footage

When i log and capture from my camera i never used to have to render, but now that i have to flip my image via FCP becuase im on a redrock, i have to render EVERY little change, does anyone have any solution to this? Or am i stuck like this until i buy a flip module?

Unfortunately you've stumbled upon one of the major drawbacks to having the flip the image in post; you're electronically telling FCP that the orientation has changed from it's default pixel positioning, so you're forcing it to render that change. There's no way around that in this scenario.

I don't want to rock the boat on your hardware setup, but if you're considering buying the flip module, instead consider the Letus Extreme. It has proven itself time and again from various shooters to be the best built unit with the highest image quality of all the 1/3" lens adapters.

I disagree, I think it really depends on what camera you have and what you will be shooting. For me the Brevis is the best unit out there. I shoot with a couple of Canon A1s and the Brevis Flip actually FIXES some of the problems the camera has, including purple fringing/CA and the Letus does not.

Andrew. That is VERY interesting. I'm considering buying an adapter but trying to decide which one. Have you actually tested this?

"the Brevis Flip actually FIXES some of the problems the camera has, including purple fringing/CA and the Letus does not."

How can one adapter fix CA and another one not.
It this is really a fact then the Brevis is for me!

Yep, that's exactly what I am saying. See for yourself @ http://www.cinevate.com/website/inde...ideouniversity just watch the video entitled "XH-A1 Chromatic Aberration and Lens Testing. It's cleaner with the flip!" it will blow your mind!
