Just purchased DVFilm Maker

Just purchased DVFilm Maker & I have a Canon GL-2........do I shoot frame mode or not?


I want the non-frame for higher res. right?

Thanks in advance...

I think you don't want frame-mode. I'm not sure but it sounds like that's a in-camera de-interlacer, and since you purchased DVFilm Maker which has a much better de-interlacer you want to use that instead. I don't know what non-frame is, sorry.

Good luck,

Steven

It's the 'normal' mode, which I believe is interlaced.

I'm 99% sure that's what I need, but I wanted to be sure.


I believe your comment on the 'better deinterlace' is accurate.

Don't use frame mode, and be sure to set your shutter speed to 1/60 sec. You should take a little time to read the online help and FAQ on their site http://www.dvfilm.com/maker/help.htm#other

The DeInterlace option seems to have no effect on my video, why not? If you shot frame mode, or used a slow shutter speed of 1/30th sec or slower, cameras like the Canon XL-1 and the Sony VX-2000 will record both fields simultaneously, and so the DeInterlace option in Maker has no effect. We do not recommend shooting in these modes because non-interlaced NTSC cannot be converted to 24 fps for transfer to film, the 24P film-motion option will also not work, and also because the slower shutter speeds will blur motion much more than a movie camera would
