strobing

<<<-- Originally posted by Simon Wyndham : When I viewed Cineframe 25 yesterday it looked bloody awful to me. The strobing was too much. -->>>

Hey Simon, could that be because of a too high shutter speed? I've heard other people had some very nice feedback on this mode (= filmlike motion without much visible vert. resolution loss)

I don't think it was due to a high shutter speed. From what I could tell the shutter was at 1/50 (it was a PAL camera) and exhibited no motion stuttering associated with higher shutter speeds when it was in interlaced mode.

Since I viewed the FX1 for myself I have found a few comments littered around the web about Cineframe looking too strobophobic.

Just one question: are those Cineframe modes "burnt" into the tape?

If they are not what is the problem? Who will be using an HDV camera as a home-video player?

Or are people planning on transferring these processed videos from the HDV onto an editing deck/PC and edit from there? Why? Just for the "cinema look"?

And another one: Is it already known what the cineframe 30/25 modes actually do technically (so without pulldown as in the CF24)? Is it just a simple de-interlacer or is it more than that? Can probably not be a lot since it's done in RT.
And if it's not known, does a company or sony in particular come out with the technical explanations later or not at all and does someone else have to do reverse engineering on it?
