Tell me your opinion of the artifacts from converting 30fps to 24. In motion, like a real audience would see it. Not paused, movies don't pause. I'm curious what you think. Please don't comment on the crappy hand held camera work, I was just testing the camera out !

Wow, that looked preety amazing!

However I'm not sure my computer is coping so well with the large file size and playback.

The shots look a little slow-mo to me, have you gone frame for frame from 30 to 24?

There also does seem to be quite a bit of severe motion blur, that might be down to the sad speed of this computer however, I managed to speed it up a little and now the blur problems are mostly only really visible on close ups. They are somewhat distracting but then I thought the footage in festen was more distracting.

My feeling is that the problems are minor and could be solved with more reasearch into them. I'm certainly impressed. :)

Daniel!

One possibility might be to shoot a mixture of 35mm and JVC.
You could buy a really nasty old 35mm camera cheaply and film the MOS stuff on that, then whenever there is dialogue, you could use the JVC. They might not intercut so well but then it all depends on what kind of film it is. That could be part of the style.

The advantage of this would be that you could film the fast motion shots on film and the low motion shots on video. Typically when people are talking they don't move so much and when there is fast action people don't tend to have conversations. There are exceptions to this of course like big rows where people shout and throw things around. ;)

The JVC problems mostly seem to be in the area of fast motion.
It could be a neat compromise for working fast!

BTW I read a lot of people going on about how the JVc had not been used in a film out before and stuff, but as I understand it, there is a scene in spykids 3 shot on the camera?

I think it is a scene in a phone booth but don't quote me on this I think Mr Rodriguez was rather vague on the matter so I could be wrong and have misunderstood.

If that's true regarding the JVC being used on Spy Kids - I think it's worth getting our DVinfo watchdogs on the beat. Who lives in Austin Texas and can knock on his door and ask him? Otherwise, who can find out???!

Maybe his number is actually listed? Anyone tired calling him? I know for a fact that a lot of actors, directors and producers don't have unlisted numbers! When I was in LA doing work for a entertainment company "celebrity red carpet" we actually grabbed phone books and called A and B-list actors, directors etc....

I can't find Rodriguez anywhere though, so maybe someone in Austin has a local phone book? Worth a try...

Heath, can you try and get an interview for Moviemaker?? He's definately the guy to get for a "10 Minute HD Film School" chat.

I'll pitch the idea to my editor. Good one, too.

Cool...and just another quick thought, but maybe you can pitch a "Contest" to Moviemaker for a 3 minute "HD Short Film" or anything HD that's 3 minutes or less? The next generation low-budget filmmaker using the latest tools available. Any HDV or HD camera can be used...any type of genre piece you want to make. (no NTSC DV cameras allowed, this is HD and HDV only - our new community!)

It would be cool to have our online DVinfo community be judges. I'd definately do a 3 minute piece for it...we can all whip something up, I'm sure!

The winner gets mentioned in Moviemaker with a Heath McKnight interview? Also, maybe a Robert Rodriguez "10 Minute HD Film School" interview woven in there somehow? I doubt he has time to get involved in a contest, but that would be nice too.

Just a thought!

I don't think they do contests, sorry. Computer Videomaker and others do, however.

Rodriguez doesn't live "in" Austin. He lives in a suburb of Austin.

Re: les dit

All film recorders can only do one thing: Put an image on the film. It's up to the preparation process to determine how many frames per second gets translated. ( 30 --> 24 , etc )

I can be mailed at lesdit
at gmail point com

If possible, can we keep this on the boards to help educate others?

Thanks,

rendered timeline at 720p60

Wouldn't it be simple to render at 720p60 and then convert to 35mm. From what I understand 60 fps blows up to 35 mm beautifully. I have HD footage at 720p60 that looks beautiful. Maybe I'm off base here...but I have been experimenting for these exact reasons(worry over blow up) as we have a feature we want to film starting in october and we have the same fears. We own the 16mm Arriflex BL and are trying to decide now what to film on.

Re: rendered timeline at 720p60

That gets you the same place as I did, equivalent to a frame blend of 30P.
If your source is 30 images a second, making 60 or 200 FPS out of it and then going back to 24 for film is the same.

I think it looks pretty good. See the example I posted somewhere in an earlier post, of 30 to 24 .

We also have to remember as good as Les's demo clip is, there are dedicated software packages (Algolith and Twixtor) that claim to far exceed the stock After Effects conversion. As Les also points out, you can achieve even better results when you aren't shooting hand held. How the shot is composed, with camera movement taken into consideration will greatly impact the final product.
Shooting in 60p mode for intense action scenes might be recommended. Up res and incorporate back into the 24p project.
The potential of what this cam can do is still to be seen.
