Blue Smear

I am getting a velvet like almost transparent smearing of blues in shots of my son's marching band from atop the press box. I have the camera set to thick. Should I use thin?

I am suprised to get this from a 3 chip camera. The band unifroms are White on the right half and blue on the right wth a black divide. The white side is just fine.

What gives? Any ideas? Do i have a bad splitter or something?

That does not sound like a thick/thin setting. Can you post a screengrab?

I'll try, if I can figure out how. The transfer is either hung, or taking forever. I have not done this before, so I'm not sure how to point you to it.

Either than is a really low rez image or something is quite wrong with the cam. How did you make the capture?

Well it is low resolution. I captured in Canopus Storm Video, and had to dumb it down to less than 60 KB for uploading. The original looks good on the camera's LCD, it just goes to pot on an NTSC monitor.

NTSC

not the same colour

a lot is lost when using analogue connections and with this cam, being what it is sometimes the image doesnt come out as it looks on the LCD.

reason being the cam's super high res, detail, chroma and cine gamma settings...

unfortunately even though they're the best feature of this cam, they can sometimes be a bane when you're just after a standard shot....

Thanks Peter. Stephen told me much the same. Is there a way to dumb the camera down to 480 lines? Maybe decreasing detail and chroma?

I would not do it in camera if you might need the higher rez later, but use a soften (say .5 vertical soft blur) in post for output if needed

Thanks

Use a Broadcast Legal filter which most NLE's have or check it on your software Waverform/Vectorscope.
