Nature films shot with DVX100A

Hello everyone,

A lot of you know me as "disjecta" over at the DVXUser board but for those who have not seen some of my stuff, here's a sampling:

Steven,

Love your stuff. Besides all the technical things, you definitely have an eye for this picture making process.

I was wondering if you know of any similar up-rezzing techniques for interlaced footage. I have a lot of stock nature and wildlife footage shot in 4:3 with a 1/2" Sony DSR-300 that I would like to mix with either HD footage, or more likely, 16:9 DVCAM footage shot with a 2/3" camera. This will then be projected in a theater on about a 25 foot screen. I know this is not ideal but it may be my only option. The footage I have is too difficult and costly to re-shoot.

Thanks,
Chris Pyle

Chris, the uprezzing technique most definitely doesn't work on interlaced material. I have tried uprezzing my DSR-250 footage and it looks terrible...You might need to de-interlace using a program like DVFilm or Magic Bullet and try uprezzing from there....haven't tried it.

Thanks for all the comments, everyone.

steven you really did a fantastic work, I liked them very much.

I want to ask a question. did you try dvx200 hd camera, and if so this camera has the same manuel film look properties like 100a ?

I bought canon xl2 and host of accessories last week, and after I watched your film look movies with 100a I feel bad a little :) because I expect to make some manuel film look videos with xl2, any way I ll try and see next week When get the camera..

thanks,
alkim.

Lens enhancement?

Steven...your films are carefully created and very moving...Are you using any
lens enhancement like a telephoto lens add on or macro filters? I think what impressed me the most was your use of light and closeupwork which brought the beauty of nature into play without a wide sweep and long vistas shots which the camera could not do without turning all to mush.

Exciting stuff...

steven, those bird shots in the first clip are awesome!! just a couple of comments...

there is some weird blockiness along the right-hand edge of the picture in that clip.

the presentation would have more impact if you could play it back full-screen... unfortunately you'd probably have to up the bitrate, tho... is it h.264?

thanks for sharing the link!

Lovely stuff

Thank you Steven, for Magical Fall in particular?

Mallards are tame enough but watching the ghost reflexing her missing foot was something else. Do you remember how far you were from the woodpecker on the apple and what gear you were using, please?
