The phrase "all the gear no idea" comes to mind here. So ive got a JVC GY-HM100 provided by my Uni & premiere pro on my new 27" iMac, unfortunately no FCP though. Im planning to shoot in 720p/50p because I want to slow the footage down for some smooth slow-motion. What is the best way to achieve this? Do I want a 25fps timeline or a 50fps timeline? What will be the correct project settings, i.e HDV, XDCAM, AVCHD etc? Should I use Adobe media encoder to convert the 50fps clips down to 25fps? Or should I just slow the clips down using 'speed/duration' in Premiere Pro Il be shooting a BMX video at a skatepark during the day & floodlit at night, how do you think it will cope under the floodlights? So many questions but if one or two can get answered I will be more on my way to a good end result. Im much more of a graphic designer than a video producer so im right out of my comfort zone now. Il post a link to the video when im done. Thanks in advance.
