    Video Processing Exchange

    I spent the last 6 months to learn video with the new breed of HDSLRs. Would be nice to exchange our experience.

    If you have any sort of questions I will try to do my best to share what I have learned.

    hi there

    sounds like a good idea for a forum... have dabbled with video on HDV, E-P1 and now 5D mk 2

    Fun stop motion work (lots of lenses). Glad to hear that no lens was harmed.

    Kevin,

    I loved your stop motion video. I'm really a beginner at this, so I wonder if you could tell me just briefly how you did this? I'm assuming it is many, many still frames put together in your video NLE. If that's right, roughly how many stills did you use for this video? Any special tricks that would be good to know going into something like this?

    It was a really entertaining and well done short video!

    The wakes up movie was literally my second effort... shot and edited it in an afternoon and a evening.

    think i took about 400 shots.... having a remote shutter release makes a big difference.

    Edited in Final Cut... it allows you to import a folder of stills and then drag them to a timeline.. there is a preference that sets the default length of each picture ... i set it to treat each picture as the equivalent of 3 frames.. Then I adjusted the length of each picture to give the pace i wanted.

    there are lot of other tricks involved, like using nylon thread that was cloned out in photoshop to make things happen... or like when Pen-E shakes her head... well reuse shots

    It really is a fun exercise working out how to realise the idea you have. You should definitely plan ahead.. and also you really have to take a lot of care to have consistent lighting and WB

    I have plans for further movies... but personal stuff has got in the way for the moment

    cheers

    Beause these are stills Photoshop is a natural choice. To my surprise Photoshop Extended CS4 can be very useful to retouch videos. Will sonn write a small article in this.

    Not connected but as you're here anyway Uwe, love the new frontpage photo 'Carmel Mission' on your webpage. Your 'muted' style of photography, while far from my own personal way of seeing, is something that I've appreciated for years.
