    New Project.

    Hello,

    Maybe I have a strange question but I will be obliged for your opinions.

    The maximum resolutions of my equipment are 4K / 60p - GoPro9, 4K / 30p - DJI Mavic Pro 2 and Sony PXW-Z90.

    How to define a project and record videos for the best quality in the end result.

    Can it record everything in 4K / 30p to avoid conversion?

    Re: New Project.

    With file based workflows its what you need to output that determines your project format.

    So you select your output format as the project format when you create the project.

    If the source media doesn't match the project format MC will scale and or framerate convert as required.

    You can create a project at 4K upto 120 fps if needed.

    But consider where your exported media will be seen. Will it really be a 4K display? Most displays are UHD which is slightly narrower than 4K.

    Re: New Project.

    Hello,

     

    I am sorry, my question was imprecise.

    I just don't fully understand or should I record everything in the highest resolution GoPro (4K / 60p), DJI Mavic Pro 2 (UHD / 30p), camcorder (XAVC 2160 / 30p)? And how do I set the project, UHD 60p or 30p or 59,94p?

    Maybe a better solution is to record all 30p and project also UHD 30p.

    Hi Zbigniew,

     

    Firstly where is this project going to be seen? Online?

     

    I would record the footage at the highest resolution possible, with whatever framerate you choose for your project (that's an artistic decision) then I would probably edit in UHD. The reason why you want your raw footage to be in the highest res possible, is so that you can zoom in or do any image restoration if you need to. Image stabilization also works better with larger images. Editing higher resolution media gives you more flexibility in the edit (you can crop something out for example and keep a high image quality.) 

    If you decide to record at 4K and edit in UHD, make sure that you see your frameflex adapters on your timeline (don't transcode and bake the frameflex adapter in) or you will have essentially just converted the 4K footage into UHD - which would defeat the purpose of recording in 4k in the first place. 

    When you create a project, Media Composer gives you options to set the resolution, colourspace framerate etc. When linking your 4k footage into your UHD project, set frameflex to 'Center Crop' to avoid it stretching your image. 

     

    Let me know if that makes sense - If it would be easier for you to understand me in polish, let me know. It's my second language :)

    Re what framerate to record at. Again decide what you will export out as and deliver to be viewed.

    Shooting at 60p won't be helpful if you decide 30p is what you plan to deliver.

    Higher resolution isn't a bad thing as you have more flexibility in framing within the project.

    Thank you for your comment.
    I will define all projects as UHD 59.94p.

    Oczywiście preferuję j. polski. Mój problem polega na tym, że nie mam żadnego kontaktu w Polsce z kim mógłbym wymieniać wiedzę.

    Czesc, Przepraszam, jeśli moje polskie pismo nie jest zbyt dobre, to nie jest mój pierwszy język i nie piszę dużo po polsku haha!

     

    Mam ten sam problem w Londynie - chociaż jestem studentem dopiero zaczynającym, czy w Polsce jest duża branża filmowa / telewizyjna? Z jakiego miasta pochodzisz?

     

    Jeśli chodzi o twoje początkowe pytanie, jak powiedziałem, kręć w najwyższej możliwej rozdzielczości, stwórz swoją sekwencję w UHD i rób zdjęcia (Frames per second) z jaką chcesz wyeksportować.

     

    Pozdrowienia,

    Filip

    Re: New Project.

    Dzięki za pomoc, tak zrobię.

    Avid to moje hobby, zupełnie nie mam rozeznania w polskim rynku komercyjnym.

    Pozdrawiam
