Can't confirm this, but from one pic I saw, I think in BSW's catalog the software included with the Podcast factory, the screenshot in the ad looks a lot like the freeware Audacity.

if so, you might be better off purchasing a slighlty better mic and getting the software free.

Absolutely. Looks fine, especially at SD resolutions. You'll notice a softening of the CF 30 compared to the 60i in HD resolutions, but some folks really like that look, me being one of them.

It might look like old BBC TV drama and comedy productions. Pre 1990s, interiors were recorded on VT in a multi camera studio, and exteriors filmed single camera on 16mm.

In the 90s this approach fell out of favour, and shows were shot all video (as high quality video became more portable) or all film (for prestige productions more likely to be sold to the US).

The look will be different, so you should have some scheme as to what would be 60i and what CF30. What's the rational between swapping between them?

The Podcast Factory sells for $150. The description indicates it comes with a professional quality microphone.

Upgrade From Studio Platunum to Vegas

Is this the correct Vegas 6.0 with DVD? Quite a bit cheaper than what Sony is offering. Sony is $575 for "upgrade from Platinum".

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home;jsessionid=Gy44Jy6PpH!-1063885234?O=cart&A=details&Q=&sku=381028&is=REG

It looks the same to me, and I assume this is the "Pro" version with all the bells and whistles my Platinum does not have.

Thanks,

Jamie

That indeed is the pro version. It may be that Sony is trying to not be too competitive with their dealers, therefore having the higher price.

Thanks Douglas,

I had not checked pricing from other dealers and didn't realize it would be that much cheaper. Glad I saw the ad.

By the way, your book "HDV: What You NEED to Know" was included with Platinum and I enjoyed it.

Thanks guys, good to know. Not too worried about it for corporate stuff, but some documentary footage may benefit from switching to CF30 look, especially in low light situations where you gain a stop or so.

Don't forget that if you have kids or attending school, you can but software at academic prices.

You can get the full version of Sony Vegas 6 + DVD for around $300 at the academic price.

Just another option.

From the Sonymediasoftware.com site, check the academic prices link which shows the sites selling it.

Thanks For The Help

Finally spit out a clean render!!! Many issues with the template and the HC1 does not like a bright background with a darker moving object...I brought the contrast down on the vid track even slightly below scope and wammo! Dont run two tracks of titling, keep it all on one line. Clean and tight! My custom template was as follows.

Mpeg2
HDV1080
best quality (good did not work)
8mbps-h
7mbps-m
4mbps-l
top field first (bottom is unwatchable)
no second pass
192 for audio
3hours 15 minutes for 32 minute project.

We have been doing high motion off road stuff lately and will be doing a high def Gray Wolf doc this weekend..should be nice.

Help - Vegas 6 is +DVD needed?

Hi,
I can get Vegas 6 academic at a good price. What will +dvd do for me. I am not shooting or doing any HD right now and probably won't ...just bought a GL-2. I have been using Studio 10 and Liquid 5.5 and not real happy with the hang-ups.

If you don't plan to do any DVD, you don't have need for the +DVD version... +DVD will give you DVD Architech, a really good DVD authoring software.
