  • HDV and H.264(mov) in a same timeline for editing

    Hi friends,

    I just ordered a 7d and will be combining HDV footage and 7d footage together in Edius. Both will be 23.98 frame rate. The HDV footage is encoded in HQ superfine but at 1440x1080.

    Im gonna have to re-encode the HDV HQ footage to 1920x1080 HQ super fine to work with the true 1920x1080 DSLR footage, correct? Im guessing 1440 wont work in a 1920 project even though frame rates are correct.

    Am i right? Any feed back before I get the cam is much appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    I found out the hard way that if you uprez HDV 1440 to 1920, you get a really soft picture. So soft, in fact, that it looks like SD! Now I edit everything in 1440x1080, and simply add the Canon footage to to the timeline without transcoding.

      Nice, that makes an easier workflow for me. I don't want to soften the hdv footage anymore than it is compared to the 7d footage.

      Thanks for the heads up iibw

        True that HDV footage is soft on 1920 timeline but 7D is soft original already so might as well putting your HDV on 1920 timeline, it should match better, you don't have to encode anything if your computer is fast enough.

          Softness depends on the way it was shot.

            I have to say I have not ever noticed Edius making HDV softer in a 1920 x 1080 timeline. I always capture directly to Canopus HQ Fine and Edius is set not to do any auto interpretation with frames etc.... I have found that Z1,V1 and even A1 have all mixed nicely with NX5 footage shot at 1920. If you think about it the only difference is the PAR... the display is exactly the same.

            Best
            Dave.

              Park your play head on a scene with details on a 1440 timeline, then switch it your project to 1920 then you should see it clearly that it is softer, if not ctrl T it and change your project 1920 and ctrl T it and then compare the 2 stills in photoshop, you should see an obvious difference.
