Slow-Motion with the PDW700

Hey guys,

A couple people have asked me how to convert 720 60p footage into slow motion. I wrote up this post on our new blog to explain my process: Slow-Mo PDW700 Footage | CineTechnica

By the way, we just launch a new blog - CineTechnica

Check it out and see what we've been up to.

Andy

Using Media Manager to recompress?

Andy,

We are back to the 25p/23.98p issue on the PDW700 and we are having to conform 25p to 24p and needing to recompress footage to PRHQ-25p to do this. ]

First, does it make sense to use the 25p to 24p option on the tools menu vs. Cinematools as posted in your blog? (the footage is b-roll without the need for sync audio, but this could change).

Second, I found with h.264 compression that Compressor was much faster than FCP at exporting media (using 8 core Intel 3.0Ghz system). Is there a benefit to using Media Manager to do this?

Thanks,

Jim

The CinemaTools method and the Conform 25p to 24p method work in very much the same way. CinemaTools has a host of other features that you don't need so I would just stick with Conform 25 to 24. You may find audio problems with either method, but I would need to do some testing.

In terms of using Compressor versus Media Manager I would just go with whichever is faster. Media Manager is just very easy use when working with multiple clips.

The audio will be slightly off pitch, but that's easily restorable with modern audio editors like Audacity.
