This is a huge batch capture I'm doing right now. I shot a travelogue/documentary as a one-person crew. I'm doing all the post production as well. I edited in OfflineRT. The footage is all 720p30 HDV. I'm finally in the onlining stage. As the thousands of clips are loading, this is the first time I'm seeing most of it in high definition. It's a big relief and pleasure after having worked in 320x240 30% quality Photo JPEG all this time. All the tapes you see are part of this project. The documentary shows a trip through Turkey. The organization which hired me will sell the DVD. I'm keeping an HDV master, a D-VHS master and of course I'll make an HD-DVD of it as well. My two biggest challenges in this project were: 1. Getting a good variety of shots wherever the tour group went - there wasn't much time at most of the stops. 2. Audio - it's very difficult as a one-person crew to handle audio. I didn't make huge audio mistakes but I know what I have to do to improve. Otherwise, the physical demands weren't that bad. I worked for 11 days straight with no breaks, working 10-14 hours each day, running around with my camera and tripod getting shots. Many people have misgivings about the JVC HD10 concerning the fact that it's a single-chip camera. There is also lots of doubt out there about its low light performance and chroma noise. However, most of what I shot is outdoors in natural light, and slowing down the shutter to 1/30 gives makes for good indoor light performance. The proof is in the shots. I'll post H.264 sample clips soon. edit: I've set up my DP G5 and PowerBook as a cluster to distribute the processing load for Compressor transcoding.
