Best End Product from HD100U

Hi guys. . . . .

Just another HD100U owner who's swimming through the forums and websites, scrounging for information and, most importantly, answers.

I shoot on an HD100U in 24PA SD and edit for the most part on Media Composer, however I have access to Final Cut Pro 5. I would like to know (preferably with as limited technical jargon as possible; or if used, please explain thoroughly; I'm still learning like a lot of us out there) what is the best possible solution for the best possible quality out of my camera and NLE system. I want so bad to begin recording in HDV 24p, however I realize there is a lack of support out there for it. Yet many of the websites I stumble onto, including this one, there are countless individuals with their incredible HD100U 24p HDV videos, which I am so fascinated by for their clarity and detail, and I'm left wondering "How were they able to accomplish this?" Do I need a Firestore recording system? Do I need to avoid tape? Is it possible to record uncompressed footage? If people have used different scenarios, what were they? I'm very interested.

Please help; this has become more frustrating than I ever wanted it to be. I appreciate all of your input. This is a fantastic website with so much knowledge and I look forward to continuing to gain from this knowledge. . . .

You will need to either upgrade to FCP 5.1 (which has HDV 24p support)

or use a 3rd party capture program like Lumiere HD and import it into your FCP timeline.

Hey Edward your in San Antonio too. Hey man, Your camera will look amazing if you use FCP 5.1.4 in Easy Setup HDV-720p24. I'd like to see some of your work. You can see some of mine at . I don't own this camera but have cut a few projects shot with it using FCP and G5.

Uhh... Guys, it doesn't matter what NLE you use. The footage would look the same on just about any NLE.

@ Ed,

Are you having trouble getting good quality images from the camera?
