Well it seems there is an immediate demand for English NTSC versions so I will take that into consideration. Most of the DVD is actually 24P anyway, so I think a universal DVD player connected to a PAL tv will handle it properly.
I'll just have to go region free I guess.

I provided JVC with a 15 minute piece from the DVD in the summer that I think they have been showing at events like this. It is a "Depth of Field" primer and a description of how SLR/Cine lens adapters work, as well as HZ-CA13U test footage.

You mean it's not Bluray!? That changes everything ;^)
Seriously, region-free almost always makes sense - certainly for independant releases. I think the region encoding is an abdomination, and the only purpose I see for it is for the the large commercial distributors to squeeze more money out of specific markets.

I would love to do it Blu-Ray or HD-DVD but the mastering cost is prohibitive. Maybe when burners come down in price I'll think about authoring in a hi-def format and burning one-offs by request.
All of the elements were mastered in 720p sequences to make the downconversion to either NTSC or PAL easy. This will also 'future-proof' it and allow for native output back to mpeg2.

Tim, is the dvd going to cover the soon to be released JVC GY-HD350?
OK - just kiddin'!
I HAVE heard from a reliable source, that Apple's 720p 60 codec is IMMINENT for release in a FCP 6 (studio 2) update - like any day now! I haven't updated to 6, so it may have even trickled through. This was demonstrated at NAB, but Apple is very fussy to get these software codecs the best they can be.
The DR-HD100 will supposedly be updated "within 2 weeks" of that time so 60fps footage can also be captured straight to QT.
This *may* be the reason for Tim holding out a bit longer.

All I want for Christmas is ...

... even a beta version of this DVD!

What are the chances of a pre-Christmas release, Tim?

How imminent is this release?

Hi Tim.

I noticed in another thread that Chris Hurd mentioned your ProHD tutorial DVD is due out very soon. This is great news! I've got to make a few purchases for the camera this week, but if your DVD (which is at the top of my "camera accessory purchases" list) is due out later this week, I'll put some of the others on hold. But if the DVD isn't due for 2-3 weeks, then no problem.

I won't "hold you" to any approximate dates you may care to give (and I doubt anyone else would either), but it really would be most helpful if you could quickly give a rough timeframe of how things are currently looking.

Thanks.

Hi Tim.

Is it being released during your appearance tonight at the NAB FCPUG SuperMeet?

And when can orders be placed (for those of us who are not at NAB)?

Thanks.

Funny you mention that. I'm sitting at the Supermeet right now and anyone here tonight will be able to purchase the DVD directly from me for $49.99.
We'll accept cold hard cash but we are also setup with a laptop to take Paypal or Credit Cards via Paypal.

We only have about 20 shrink wrapped DVDs with us so first come first serve.
I will only be here until the end of intermission and then I have to fly out.

My presentation is around 7:30 I think.
