    Canon HV20/HV30 appreciation thread

    Yes, you can. I have edited avchd from a HV20 on an XP, being a Sony camera and format, Vegas easily reads avchd where some other editing programs may not.

    Canon HV20/HV30 appreciation thread

    I have had no issues downloading video with XP, I've even downloaded and edited HD with Sony Vegas Pro. Would the render be faster if I had a 64 bit OS? Sure, but overall, no issues.

    I have a fulltime job as well, so this thing is a part time gig until I retire in a few short years. The kid I'm working with does have a few labels looking at him and even got a slot on VH-1, so I'm sticking with him for the long haul. Like you, eventually, I'll search out other bands, but I...

    Using Military, legal?

    I've never researched this, but according to rumors I've heard about military films, anytime you have an authentic uniform on screen, it can not be completely accurate (ribbons in the wrong place, rank put on wrong, etc.). Real members of the mlitary can not wear their own uniforms on commercial...

    I'm just getting into the music vid business, so I have no idea what your budget was and how much you got paid, please tell. My situation is a little different, I'm working with a local rising artist for free, I get the experience of producing videos, he gets a decent video to market. He also...

    Using Military, legal?

    If you use the Army Logo, or use actual military uniforms representing the US Army, you need permission from the Army PAO, now, if you use the same uniforms and equipment but depict a made up Army or faction, then you don't need permission. Also, if you do get permission, you might be surprised...

    If that is your first music video, then I'm Santa Claus. It's a great video, love the film work, I just don't believe for one minute it's your first! LOL!

    Canon HV20/HV30 appreciation thread

    That's good to know, I have a lot of interior club scenes I need to film for an upcoming project next month. This camera is looking more appealing to me after reading this Thread.

    Well, that probably fits me then, as a videographer, I'd consider myself a novice, so maybe I should start with this camera. I've been eyeing the Sony Z1U though as well. choices choices.

    Canon HV20/HV30 appreciation thread

    Hmm, good to know. All the reviews on B&H say the picture quality is amazing. It sounds like an awesome novice HD camera. I guess my hang up is I have a sony which I like to control via a LANC, the HV20 doesn't appear to have a remote control feature, so believe it or not, that's really the key...

    Canon HV20/HV30 appreciation thread

    This is some good info, I'm still debating on getting this one, been researching this camera for over 6 months now. My main concern and reason for hesitation is the complaints people have about the awkwardness of the controls, specifically the manual focus and the little joystick thingy...

    Shooting a night fight scene

    There was actually a contest on this Forum which I participated in to help another member out with Day2night shots. You can do it in After Effects using a blue tint, but you have to mess around with the curves and all to get it to look right. Also, try not to have a lot of sky showing unless...

    Exporting for Flash?

    You're further along than I am. I can't figure out how to embed a Flash video onto my website at all. I can't even get the Flash movie to work properly on my computer let alone on my website.

    I've hit the wall, need practical advice

    Escape and evading from tracking dogs is always an exciting scene. You can show how the SAS Soldier attempts to throw off his scent through various quick techniques (using pepper from his field rations, tossing clothes of in another direction, going acros water, etc), nothing like the sound of...
