Working with DSLR footage?

1. Is it easy to work with DSLR footage (Canon or Nikon) with CS6?
2. Do you just copy the folder from a media card and access it directly from the media browser?
Thanks in advance

1-depends on your computer... since you provide no hardware information, no way to answer
2-yes, and read

  • Since Prelude doesn't work with Red footage, how can I add logging info to a file in Premiere Pro

    Since Prelude doesn't work with Red footage, how can I add logging info to a file in Premiere Pro CS6?

    RED footage has a restriction on metadata.  We are looking into what it would take to get full metadata support into our system, but you cannot tag red footage at this time.

  • I have green artifacts with DSLR Footage. What is causing this?

    I'm getting weird green flickers in my renders whenever I use any footage taken on DSLR. It happens about once every 10 seconds or so any RUINS all my renders. I've tried rendering to a host of different codecs and file types. I even replaced my video card and re-installed my OS.

    All hardware has been tested, and works with every other file format.

    I have the problem too in AVC and MPEG2-Files. Outside AE the Clip is decoded correct but inside there are random green artefacts. It seams the decoder do it wrong. Cleaning mediacache doesn't work. After  a clean the artefacts are simply on another position.

  • Working with 48fps footage in Premiere CC

    Hi there,
    I am currently working on a 24fps project with R3D footage in Premiere.
    Some of the footage for a new sequence I am working on was shot at 48fps (and will need to be exported to 24fps while retaining 48fps' slow motion effect) and I am unsure how to go about this.
    Can Premiere play back in the program monitor at 48fps? Can it interpret/render 48fps footage to export to 24fps while retaining the original attributes of the 48fps footage? Or would I need to use additional software to accomplish this?
    Ideally I would like to be able to edit/playback the footage at the correct frame rate within Premiere as I need to synchronise it with music to see which segments of the clips I have will work best.
    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    If I'm understanding you right. Your R3D footage is a baseline of 24fps (or 23.976fps) but was overcranked on the camera to 48fps, meaning it should playback half the speed of realtime. I don't know much about camera settings but normally the camera processes this internally and then spits it out at 24fps but was actually overcranked for slow-motion. Arri Alexa does this internally. I have worked on R3D slow-mo before and I know it processes it internally also.
    Unless the red camera has a setting to turn that off I do not know. The important part is; is the footage at 24fps or 48fps BASELINE and how much excess fps was set to overcrank in the camera settings? (i.e was it set to 'squeeze' 48fps into 24fps)? Normally premiere pro cc is good at reading the footage's baseline fps value in the browser.
    But to interpret footage inside of premiere pro cc, its easy - all you do is bring in your footage into the browser, then right click on it, go to modify then interpret footage; in the menu at the top, change the fps value interpretation from 48fps to 24fps (or whatever baseline you want) and then click ok. Drop the clip onto a timeline matching the rest of your baseline fps and it should be slow-mo. You should see the value of the clip's timecode length increase double in the browser metadata.
    Hope that helps, let me know how it goes. Be useful if you can take screen grabs of the metadata so we can see what your looking at.

  • Working with Corrupted Footage

    Hi there,
    I am trying to work with RED/R3D footage that appears to have been corrupted during transfer (apparently this may be a problem with USB3).
    In the affected footage artifacts appear on the screen for a frame at a time (please find screencap attached). When trying to export this footage, some of it exports successfully but on some of it I receive the message “error compiling movie: unknown error”.
    Since most of the footage will be very difficult to re-shoot I was hoping that it would be possible to cut out the corrupted frames, frame by frame, (I have tried this on some scenes and it appears to be virtually unnoticeable but perhaps this will cause problems down the line?). However since Premiere will not allow me to export some sections of affected footage I am concerned that some of it just cannot be exported (or perhaps would require different software to do so).
    If anyone can please clarify for me how to solve/get around this problem I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks very much for the tip.
    If anyone has any ideas about the “error compiling movie: unknown error” problem I would be very appreciative to hear. Thanks!

  • Working with SD footage in HD sequence.

    Hi all -- a quick question.
    I'm working on a show for broadcast...sequence settings are 720p 24.
    All of the original shooting was done on a Panasonic using P2 cards -- also 720p 24.
    Most of the B-roll is SD -- alot of film clips ripped from dvd's (legal --all legal), and stock footage provided as high resolution QT's downloaded from websights.
    Now, my system has a Kona card and we're doing our color correct with an HD monitor.
    Here's the kicker -- I've got a post supervisor who insists that we have to send out our SD qt's to be upconverted at a facility using a Teranex box.
    It doesn't make any sense to me, since these qt's have been upconverted in compressor to the proper codec and look pretty great in my sequence.
    Am I missing something? Why on earth would we need to incur the expense of sending these clips to post and then laying them back into our sequence?
    Am I crazy?
    Any opinions are eagerly awaited.

    I do understand budgets and I also understand the need to keep costs low. I also understand the need to do things right the first time. Spending money up front typically results in lower long term costs, at least I like to think so.
    You mention all this video that was demuxed from mpeg2 and then upconverted to whatever format of hd you're working with through Compressor looks great in FCP. My question is how are you monitoring your timeline, on your iMac? The images in the canvas are rather irrelevant as FCP provides a proxy image rather than full video resolution monitoring via either firewire or a dedicated input/output device. Unfortunately your iMac lacks this capability, except maybe through a MXO and well that's a topic for another discussion.
    Changing formats means changing color gamuts, pixel aspect ratios, raster dimensions and sometimes field order. I guess Compressor will do an okay job for this but you mention doing this work for broadcast. I regularly use products made to do this job, products from companies like Evertz, Ensemble Designs, Aja, Ross, Leitch and I'll tell you, even these high dollar converters struggle with NTSC to HD upconversions at times and they do a much much better job than Compressor could ever do. Teranex makes terminal products strictly for format conversions and they are superior products.
    I have no idea about your post supervisor's experience level with any of this and she should be able to explain it succinctly enough to warrant these costs. Just depends on what your producers want to do. Good, fast, cheap: it's getting to the point anymore where you can only pick 1.5 of these aspects to get a job done.

  • Working with XDCam Footage in Shake. Is it Possible?

    Hey Guys,
    From what I've been able to dig up, Shake doesn't like rendering out to XDCam in File-Out nodes and it's been the same case for me. XDCam renders brought in to FCS are slow to load and constantly bring up the beach-ball. Is it the same case for File-In nodes too? Should I avoid working with the XDCam format entirely?
    The other problem I've been having, is I'll File-In the XDCam footage, work through the process to get a greenscreen key and then I've tried several different file-out CoDecs: Animation, ProRes422, ProRes422 (HQ), DV/DVCPro NTSC, and the only format that comes out normal is the DV/DVCPro NTSC. All the others are shortened.
    So my question is, what's happening to my footage? The original is 10,372 Frames (Roughly 5:45) and yet I get different render times for each, even though the Flipbook shows 10k+ Frames rendered.
    422(HQ) at the Original 1280x720 - 2:34
    422(HQ) resized to 864x480 - 3:52
    422 at the original size 1280x720 - 3:50
    DV/DVCPro NTSC at 1280x720 - 5:46
    Animation at 1280x720 - :20 (That one was an odd one.)
    Can anyone help by explaining to me what's going on? I've even tried putting an 8-bit "Bytes" node before the file-out, as some have suggested, and still no glory. I should not that ProRes422 (HQ) is the timeline setting for my Final Cut Project and everything was shot on an XDCam ex-3 at 720p30.

    I don't have any interlacing options selected in either node and the clip just stops automatically at 2:34 (4636 Frames). The file-in format is a 1280x720, 29.97fps, Apple ProRes 422 (HQ), 13.6 MB/sec Data Rate. The File-out node is set to the same 29.97fps, Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) codec and is left at 1280x720. When imported back into Final Cut the Data Rate is slightly lower at 13.2 MB/sec, but that is the only difference.
    What makes me doubly confused is that if I put a resize node before my file out and size the 422 (HQ) file to a proportional 864x480 (other details the same) I get a longer video file as the result at 3:52 (6962 Frames), at an 8.8MB/sec Data Rate, but still well short of the full 5:45 (10375 Frames). The only file-out format that doesn't truncate my video is a 1280x720 DV/DVCPro - NTSC and it's Data Rate is 3.4MB/sec but the quality is so low as to warrant not using it.

  • Importing & Working with HD Footage

    I have some HD footage that I need to work with that I am trying to import from a borrowed camera. The trouble is the amount of it is taking waaayyyy too long to import and it is having trouble saving to my 500 GB hard drive. Could this be due to not much ram? Would it be better to import using DV format instead of HD (since I don't have an hd tv)? Also, how can you tell what format a clip was imported with, which format it is? File info doesn't tell you. Any information you can give regarding working with hd vs dv will be appreciated.

    A G4 laptop is just too underpowered to import HD material. Best you could expect is about on quarter of real time. One hour of tape would take four hours to import.
    You set the "format" when you start a new Project (look at the options).
    Double check the file format of your external drive. Most come formated for PC's and you'll mess up your Project files unless you reformat it.

  • Please Help, How can I get 24Frame .mov's to work with broadcast footage?

    I am desperate for some help. I have 24 Frame image sequences and 29.97 B-Roll footage that I need to work with. I am forced to work in the B-Roll frame rate because it is a mixture of scenes and all the interlace is different shot to shot.
    So my question is how can I take this 24 Frame CG and get it to 29.97? I can’t conform it in Cinema Tools because it speeds up the timing. I can’t add pull down in After Effects because it looks really bad. Is there any other way that I can add pull down to this footage and have it still look good?
    I am in desperate need for some help so even some conversation might get the ball rolling.
    Thanks in advance

    I'm really surprised that you say it is looking bad out of After Effects since that is a good way to add the pulldown. What is it that is looking bad? Is the comp set up correctly? Is the CG stuff a true 24? You might want to conform it to 23.98 in Cinema Tools, then try adding the pulldown in AE. I don't think it should matter except that you aren't truly pulling down to 30fps so you'll have to change the rate at some point.
    The only other way I know to add the pulldown, is to use FinalCut at a 23.98 sequence, play it out to tape to add the pulldown, then capture it back in.

  • Does Premiere Elements support DVCPRO-HD? How do I ingest and work with HD-footage from HVX-200?

    Hi there,
    I work with Premiere Elements 11 on a windows PC, and I try to ingest HD-footage from Panasonic HVX-200 Camcorder. Premiere Elements only recognizes thumbnails, but not the footage itself? What do I have to do? Or does Elements only support SD-footage? Do I have to install DVCPRO-HD Codec? Where do I get it then?
    Thanks for your help!, yours Mike

    Welcome to the forum.
    PrE does support HD material, just not all of it.
    With DVCPRO HD on P2 media, I am not sure that you will be able to work directly with the media files from your Panasonic in PrE. This is the list of supported formats: 8000.html#WS300DE01D-F057-4639-96D1-F99EEE163C24
    PrPro can Import and edit DVCPRO HD on P2 media. The Panasonic P2, along with its metadata is supported:
    Good luck,

  • What External Drives should I use to work with HD footage?

    I just got a new camera that shoots HD and I will be editing weddings with it. I need to figure out how and where to put my HD media that I can work with in Final Cut Pro. I have a Lacie external drive but am not sure if there is a better option for me.

    Don't use USB for video. Use FireWire. Even FW400 has plenty of bandwidth to handle HD video; FW800 is even better. If you expect to be compositing 3, 4 or more video clips from the same drive, then FW800 is the way to go, perhaps even a FW800 RAID-0.
    USB2 would appear to be fast enough however there is more to it than just the raw speed measured in a lab. The USB protocol cannot keep up with the streaming demands of digital video. It may work for awhile, particularly on very short clips, but somewhere along the line you will run into trouble.
    Most good FW drives today support FW800 and FW400. If you are seriously doing weddings and using FCP, don't skimp on your drives - look into GTech, Caldigit, Wiebetch. And get at least one additional drive for backup - you will need it.
    And BTW, you're going to need more than 1GB RAM - upgrade to 2GB minimum, 4GB if you can

  • Problems with DSLR Footage in CS 5.5

    I am using Premiere CS 5.5.  I have no trouble editing AVCHD footage, but a new client is giving me footage shot with various DSLR cameras and this is causing me problems.
    First, my specs.
    Windows 7
    i7-2600 processor
    GTX 460 card (1 GB memory, 336 CUDA processors) (Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration is on)
    16 GB memory
    Separate SATA 7200 RPM hard drives for programs and data files
    Now, my symptoms.  When I first turn on the computer and open a project, it works fine for a while, though scrubbing on the timeline with any speed causes a bit of choking.  After some period of time, trying to play a clip on the timeline will cause Premiere to display a single frozen frame, even though the sound is still playing correctly.  It doesn't natter where I move the playback line, I will see this frame frozen on my screen until I turn off the computer.  Rebooting the computer and opening the project is not sufficient to un-stick things - it has to be a full shut down.
    Defragging the hard drives does not help.  And the problem happens even if there are no effects on the clips.
    Question: which would be a more likely solution for this problem: upgrading the GTX card or investing in a USB 3.0 Raid 0 drive?  Or is there a better solution that I am overlooking?

  • Premiere CS6 - keyframed scaling is not working with RED footage when Time Remapping is used

    My system is: Win7, Premiere CS6 (6.0.5), 12GB RAM, etc...
    My project settings:  I'm using 1080p RED timeline.
    Using 4K RED footage with "Scale to frame size" disabled after placing the clip on timeline.
    Under effects time remapping is set to 50%.
    Motion->Scale is keyframed from 50% to 100% to achieve zoom in effect while preserving image quality.
    Clip stays at 50% Scale ignoring the keyframes.
    Problem is present during preview and in the exported file. I tried with CUDA enabled and disabled and problem persists.
    If I turn off Time Remapping, then the clip responds to scaling keyframes.
    Is there any workouround or can this bug be fixed?

    This seems to work but I had to apply TR to the nested sequence and scaling to the original clip.
    Otherwise scaling operations are messed up.
    This situation reminds me of after effects and effects processing order.

  • Fit to Fill not working with HD footage in a DV Pal timeline...

    I'm editing some HD anamorphic footage (Apple Intermediate Codec, 1440x1080, 29.97fps) into a DV Pal timeline (720x576, 25fps).
    When I try to use Fit to Fill to change the speed of the footage and make it fit an exact part of the soundtrack, I either get a still frame after rendering, or completely the wrong part of the clip (ie not the part I selected using In and Out in the Browser), and with no speed change.
    The same thing happens if I try using Apple-J to change the speed...
    Does anybody have an idea what I'm getting wrong? I'm in FCE HD 3.5.1

    I suspect there's a problem with the frame rate mixing. I'd suggest using Nattress standards conversion software to convert one to whatever frame rate you want to work in. FCE should not be used for standards conversion.

  • Can i work with Uncompressed footage 1024x576 in FCP5?

    Im trying to import an uncompressed .mov file into FCP with no success. The Uncompressed 10 bit sequence preset in FCP5 is 720 x 576 so when i import the footage fcp converts it to 4x3. I need to work in 16x9 at 1024 x 576 and export an uncompressed file thats 1024x576 - am i asking too much of FCP5?

    Change the sequence preset to match. If you open the audio/video settings, you can create a sequence setting that matches your source material's properties. Duplicate the one you're using now in the sequence settings tab, change it in the dialog box that opens... save it, and use that instead.
