Working With Tapeless and DSLR Media
The video industry is rapidly converting from video-tape, to file-based, or tapeless formats. The good news about this transformation is that cameras are becoming increasingly flexible. The bad news is that this new technology totally changes the way video editors work with media.
In this one-hour Final Cut Studio tutorial, Larry Jordan shows you what you need to know to work successfully in a tapeless world. Using step-by-step techniques and actual media, Larry explains how to organize your system, how to name your folders and files, shows you traps to avoid, then, using Final Cut Pro, illustrates how to ingest (meaning "bring into Final Cut") virtually every popular tapeless video format.
In addition, Larry provides weblinks for useful utilities that can make working with tapeless media even easier.
NOTE: Tapeless media discussed includes formats such as P2, XDCAM EX, DVCPROHD, AVCHD, AVCCAM, RED, H.264, and DSLR (both Canon and Nikon).
This episode is designed for someone familiar with Final Cut Pro, who is having trouble understanding how to work with these new media formats, or wants to learn how to set up their system to work successfully with these new formats.
This webinar provides information for Final Cut Pro 6 and 7 (contained in Final Cut Studio 2 & 3).
