FCProse Episode 4 – cut color compress 5dmarkii footage

Here’s the all-in-one video tutorial showing you how to cut, color, and compress 1080p video captured with Canon’s upcoming 5D Mark II Digital SLR with three Final Cut Studio 2 applications: Final Cut Pro, Color, and Compressor. I recommend clicking thru for the hd version to better see the application interfaces.

In this episode I walk through the steps to edit your footage in Final Cut Pro, perform a broadcast safe grade in Color, and then make a web compression for upload to YouTube and Vimeo using Compressor.

I work directly with the source H.264 video Vincent Laforet made available for download (no H.264 -> Apple ProRes 422 transcode this time around). I also discuss some system specs and rant about High Dynamic Range video. A quick tag surf lead me to this post that has an example of HDR video captured by something called the HDRC® MDC04 CL camera system.

What’s High Dynamic Range (HDR), you ask? Check out yet another Chad Richard HDR timelapse (click thru for the full HD effect):

Mr. Richard has done a lot of heavy lifting to convert a series of HDR stills into 1080p video (and then compress for Vimeo, of course). Check out his tutorial for this process here.

We’re at the forefront of a paradigm shift where digital photography and high definition video are converging. Check out Romy Ocon‘s 5dmkii bird photography, err, video:

Right now is an exciting, exciting time.

how to – make an HDR timelapse

While I’ve been on the subject of tutorials, here’s one that I’ve found that is, to coin a phrase, picture perfect:

How to make an HDR timelapse

I found Chad Richard on Vimeo while researching the Canon 5dmarkii and HDR imagery.  Chad shot the above HDR timelapse with the Nikon D700 (if you want to check that camera out, too).

Wow, Chad’s a great find.  Here’s one reason:

Thanks for stopping by Chad, and thanks for publishing your process to create HDR timelapses.

You’ve inspired my imagination.  And I have a new reason to break out my trusty old Nikon 5700 Coolpix (RAW images & Auto Exposure Bracketing 3 or 5 frames within +2 EV, yay!).
