Newbie needs help getting film-look with DVX100a

Hey guys,

I'm new to video production & was wondering if there was tips you guys had for getting the best possible film look out of the 24p mode in the DVX100a.

I'm using the preset for now - what settings can I tweak in the menu to get a better film look? The manual explains what each setting does, but I'm new to this & it's all Greek to me.

Thanks in advanced,

Hugo

Thousands of Google hits on that subject. Probably hundreds on dvinfo alone. Basically:

Depth of Field
Lighting
Shoot as if you were shooting film (panning, etc.)
Crush blacks
(sometimes) saturate colours
And a good smoke machine to accent the light is my personal fav'.


That's the nutshell.

You also have Barry Green's book about the DVX which - I haven't read it, as I don't have the DVX - has a very good reputation.
And then there is offcourse this site - do a search - and the big site about the DVX.
It's something called like www.dvxuser.com but I'm not sure.

Good luck!
