How are you HVX/RedrockM2/FCPro users flipping your images?

I tried to do a flip using the "rotate" function, but everytime I tried to rotate the image it actually changes the sharpness (focus?) by a VERY noticeable degree. There must be another way. What is it?

Thanks much.

Render the video and see if that doesn't take care of it.

You were right. . . I got fooled by the fact that it played. . . unrendered video played "fuzzy."

There was also the "flop" command I just found, as well.

Thanks much.

I know this isn't the best solution, especially after the fact, nor workable in all situations, but...

I saw a blog a while back where a couple of guys were using a film adapter with an FX1. They made a custom mounting bracket for their tripod, dolly and crane system where the camera was mounted upside down... ;-)

I'm going to try this with FCP next time I shoot with my Letus:

1. Capture the clips
2. Drop them onto a time line and "flop"
3. Export as self contained .mov
4. Import so they'll be oriented properly

Anyone see any problems with this? I found that editing upside down and backwards was a real pain.

Jim. . . there is no need to go through those efforts. Just import the flipped images into FCP and then use the "image control" "flop" command (I think it is under image control. . . it is definitely "flop"). You'll have your footage rightway around and in perfect order so long as you remember to RENDER the footage (which I had spaced doing).

No need for all those steps. One command will get you where you want to be.
