Finally got our HVX200 RAW Clips! Need a server!!!!!

Finally got around to getting our HVX200 clips shot on P2. I have 4 raw clips that my friend Barlow and I shot with Panasonic's HVX200 at DVexpo last week.* What I have are three 720P 24 and one 1080P 24 raw clips.** We shot these on a 4gig p2 card and then brought them from a powerbook laptop via the PCMCIA slot into Final Cut Pro and then burned them to CD.

BTW- Import to FCP was so easy that it was awesome. I have no problem with tape, but the P2 worked flawlessly with FCP. Thumbs Up!

The Footage is nothing fancy at all.* It's convention show floor footage on sticks with pretty bland lighting you get at any show. It's more like If I were shooting a documentary ( ala Michael Moore- frontline etc ) or run & gun film like BlairWitch etc; that's what these show conditions would resemble simply non controlled environments that we would face for that type of filmmaking or cinema verite** style.


FIRST ISSUE: Server needed........

Ok, the problem is I need someone to post these clips or mirror them.* We don't have the download bandwidth to cover a massive download.

So if your serious, and I know you from the boards. If approved, I will give a private not be publicized link to get these files.* I ask that you have these files up within one hour of getting them. * So if you have the bandwidth let me know, and if you can do this that would be wonderful.

Important:

Again, I want to stress that the conditions at the recent DVexpo and how the camera would film are more like how documentary or run and gun type filmmakers would be facing. This is real world filming, not studio filmmaking with sets and a lighting to make perfect pretty looking images.

So this footage is not like the awesome material that Barry Green,Jarred Land, Evin Grant etc filmed. Nor is it like the awesome footage that Illya Friedman's production shot*that was filmed out and screened at Laser Pacific.

It is however raw P2 clips straight from the camera to FCP and nothing done to them what's so ever. There just 720/24 and 1080/24 mode footage that people can play with and look at...

If you can host these clips Email me at : Arrfilms@hotmail.com

I'd host them, but I only have about 12GB per day of bandwidth allowance left on my server. If I exceed that it starts digging into my wallet pretty badly. :-(

We are working on it. We are getting a list of credible people that can host these. Understand these clips were shot on the official roll out date of the HVX200 and just three weeks before it's in stores to buy. I remember when Canon announced the H1 many weeks before it shipped that Kaku had like 20+ raw m2t files already up.

We were promised by DVexpo that we would have raw clips from the HVX200, but have not yet, and here it is 13 days before it's release date we still have no raw clips to see as we were told we would have. We have winmedia9 and h.264 clips but no one has yet to upload a straight import from P2 into FCP as we have.

BTW, as i said before- Import into FCP was so easy that it was awesome. The P2 worked flawlessly with FCP for us. Thumbs Up!

So we will be unveiling these boring bland clips on sticks shot in a booth on my P2 cards with conditions more like how documentary or run and gun type filmmakers would be facing. This is real world filming, not studio filmmaking with sets and a lighting to make perfect pretty looking images.

Jeff send me an email and we might use your offer and then let someone mirror it and then close yours out before we get near walletless cash stage.

Just ask the Europeans.

Michael, why don't you simply send Mikko Wilson a message? He is already hosting the other files available and seems to have several servers.

maybe he is just giving us a preface so that when we see how good the footage is in less than optimal conditions, we are astounded

Some are reading way to much into this.


Thanks Michael, I'm looking forward to seeing the footage regardless of composition and lighting.

Ok here are the clips.

My friend Barlow Elton can explain more how he imported these files into FCP from my P2 cards if you would like to know the process. Salatar has one more clip to put up. I believe it's another extreme close-up of the girl. Word of advice these clips work on some systems and not others. It will depend on your version of QT and I believe whether you have DVCPRO HD codecs in your system.

Here is the main link:

These are the direct links: One more 720 is coming too!

The process was as simple as you'd expect. Pop the P2 into the powerbook, file import into FCP5 bin. I put clips on the timeline in both 720 and 1080i (the 1080 clip is pulldown) sequence presets and did very short edits of the material. Exported the clips in "make movie self-contained" in order to not recompress the files.

That's it.
