Magic Bullet and FX1

Does anyone think itll be possible to "Magic Bullet" FX1 footage, getting results equal to if not better than dvx?.

Cheers,
Ben Gurvich

Marcus has updated DVFilm Maker software so it'll handle up to 1920 x 1080, so you could definitely use his software to convert the 60i down to a simulation of 24P.

Whether it'll be better than any other camera remains to be seen, of course.

My Film Effects and Standards Converter for FCP will do this conversion for you. Obviously, I don't have any FX1 footage, but I could take some of the 1080i footage that comes as a sample of the DVCPro100 codec with FCP HD and try it on that for you. I see no reason why it won't be as successful as it is on normal DV footage.

Cheers Graeme,
Just speculating at this stage.- Currently comparing magic bulleted pdx10 dvcam (PAL) to DVX100.

In australia its 2.5 grand difference so i dont mind magic bulleting at the end of a project even if it takes long.

>>>on second thought, i hated trying to focus that damn pdx10, but it is true 16x9

im confused, i gotta take a time out.

Cheers,
