--B_3174379382_683103 Content-type: text/plain; charset="ISO-8859-1" Content-transfer-encoding: quoted-printable I just put a new one up today: http://x.nnon.tv/ Right now a lot of what = I=B9m running into is experiment and test and dealing with various problems= that are coming up. My pipeline is slowing down for the moment. For instan= ce....I want to edit everything in Final Cut and with the source material i= ntact. My camera shoots MPEG4 at three different sizes and I=B9m generally = shooting at 320x240. I also want to edit in this format if possible to cut = down on extra processing. Final Cut will handle the image but not the sound= from the camera so it has to write the audio every time I load or edit in = a new clip to the timeline though this is more annoying as it does re-write= the audio quickly, but then there are other issues such as gliching dissol= ves when rendering the final edit to MP4 so now I render to photo-jpeg to a= void this and then put it back to MP4 when I run it all through Cleaner whi= ch has its own issues as well. That=B9s one aspect. The next is that my sho= oting strategy has to change as well. If I have an idea about how much I=B9= m going to be crunching a piece in the end I=B9ve may want to be concerned = more about issues of panning speeds, lighting, and so on. I=B9d taken my ca= mera (little Fisher thing that shoots MP4) out on Saturday experimenting wi= th holding it, panning out the window of the car and so on as well as findi= ng out how the audio holds up with this little thing. After I=B9d shot the = footage and then did the edit I ended up with a lengthy piece that I intent= ionally wanted to keep this long to continue figuring out the rest of the p= ipeline as far as downsizing for the web and so on. Its all been very educa= tional and the info I=B9m getting off this list has been very beneficial. T= hanks to all!
