Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I just purchased a Pinnacle Studio HD Ultimate collection editing unit. and a Panosonic AG-HMC AVCCAM 40P video camera. I will be burning to DVD as a final product. Question Which the best format to record with? 1080/60i 1080/30P 1080/24P Thank you Delmar Rempel [email protected]


Answers :

Hello Delmar

The recording format you are going to choose depends completely on what your needs are.

Take for instance :1080/60i

Breaking this down gives you

\015\012
    \015\012
  • 1080 (your resolution)
  • \015\012
  • 60 is your frequency or how often per second the picture is replaced (basically the same as the frame rate)
  • \015\012
  • i means that the image is interlaced meaning that every second line is refreshed every pulse. So if you are shooting 24fps , 12 will be for the half of the lines , and the other 12 for the other half.
The 1080/24p setting I would not recommend as this is not very well supported with HD tv's.

Your resolution is set at 1080. So this leaves you to play with the frequency and the refresh setting (progressive or interlaced)

Shooting at 60i , means that every 1/30 of a second the whole screen is refreshed (1/60 for each half as interlaced refreshes every second line at a time)

Shooting at 30p means that every 1/30 of a second , the whole screen (at once) is refreshed (not every second line every 1/60 of a second like interlaced shooting).

Therefore , they are in fact the same thing if you look closely. So you can shoot in any of these two formats as they can be converted to another should the necessity ever arise.

Please let me know if you need more info.

Kind Regards
Stephan
