  • 5D Video footage

    Using 5D as main camera, the footage is not as smooth as the video camera footage. 5D is shot in 25p and video is 50i both PAL, must I convert the 5D footage - do not know if I should get Procoder for this or which encoder do you suggest - Am I missing something with this footage, currently using mercalli to smooth it out - is there not a better way.
    thank you

    That is the way it looks with progressive, you can't make it look like interlaced video.

      see if you can switch the 5D to 50p, then the footage will look smooth in your 50i project

      my DSLR camera GH1 does 50p but only up to 1280x720 (I use this camera when security guards disallow filming because of the big XDCAM camera) nobody ever says anything about pointing a DSLR

        Because Johan doesn't know what the difference is between 25p and 50i he should not be using 720 50p on a Canon dslr unless he knows what the consequences can be. Moire is much worse in 50p then 25p on a Canon dslr and it can totally ruin your image, it can look horrific when you got fine detail in the background (like small bricks, tiles on a roof etc)
        The only way to avoid this is shooting with shallow dof or not having any detail with fine lines in your image. In his case I would only recommend to learn to shoot 25p with his dslr and videocamera as it requires a bit different approach then 50i or p, there are many topics to be found on the internet about how to shoot 25p right.

          As Anton said, swap to the 1280x720 50p or 60p Modus. Also for getting good results choose ISO 320/640 or 1280. Shutter Speed not more than 150.
          For geeting good colors check Philipp Blooms Blog. He explain a lot about saturation seetings and others.
          To reduce the moire effect much significant, you have to buy the new EOS 5D MArk III :-)

          Hope this helps you a little bit !

          ciao

            When I am filming using 5Dmk2 i use the Technicolor CineStyle picturestyle preset, it works grate.
            I only use Shutter Speed´s 50 for pal and 60 for ntsc and no other.
            ISO: 160, 320, 640 and 1250.
            Then in Edius you need to do some work using like the YUV curve. or use AE and S curve look up table (LUT).
            It can also help using ML firmwere for the 5Dmk2, i use it sometimes.
