our first sameday edit - with Panasonic HMC154

On the 24 Jan 09 we shot and edited our first same day edit clip. It was an awesome emotional experience that following morning at breakfast when watching it with the couple, friends and their family...

Technically you are right but ...

...why we call it a same day edit is because we delivered a highlights video of the couple's wedding within the same 24 hour period that the wedding took place :)

Petrus- the playback from your website looked very "blocky", especially in the blacks. What I mean is that I am seeing block pattern. It shows usually on the groom's jacket and vest. Is that from the compression used to put it on the web or is that possibly in the original video as well?

Chris,

I used premiere cs4 (v4.01) , on a vista ultimate 64bit SP1, 2.6Mhz Core2Quad, 8gig 1333Mhz memory, Nvidia 9800 GT 512Mb graphics, 1.3 terabyte total HDD of which 1Tb 2x500gig HDD striped (raid 0 configuration) Mb Intel P45.

we edited the native AVCHD footage but it was difficult at most as every slomo/transition etc. had to be rendered to see what the result looked liked before we were happy.

The full edit of the couple is done on the same specs, but I have transcoded to P2 HD footage (DVCPRO HD) using the panasonic transcoder V2.1, (made by mainconcept). CS4 handles P2 footage as if it is normal DV footage (no pre rendering required!)

regards

Petrus

Mike,

I have noticed the blocks as well, the HD footage was down converted to .mp4 and I must say I'm not totally satisfied with the encoding quality straight out of premiere CS4. Currently for down conversion we export as .avi and then re-export the avi in CS3 with the mainconcept (v3.3) encoder for best results (this clip did not get the new treatment)

For future HD edits I am looking to Neo Scene from Cineform, it is still in a testing phase but it looks promising!

regards

Petrus

I would have to agree with Phil here, i do understand that you delivered the product within the 24hr/1 day period, but editing the content elsewhere than on location, you don't get the sense of that urgency of finish the product right then and there. To have the clips captured, edited, sinqed before the dinner is over. And technically the date of the wedding was different from the date of the showing. I would considert his more a highlight than a SDE.

Never the less, Pauli and Pierre must've had a pretty long night. Job well done guys, can't wait to see future films.
