olympus TG-1

Jul 15, 2012 11:31 AM

Hiya ! I just ordered an Olympus TG-1 ( my very first video camera ! ) so I can make underwater vampire movies.

I have CS3 with winXP ( dual core 2.6ghz ) 4gig ram.


mousey computer.


Apparently the camera shoots H264 in mov wrapper.

Apparently this is similar to 5D and 7D ?


With mouse I don't think I can just re-wrap to mp4 for use in CS3.

I think maybe I should use Cineform neoscene and convert to AVI ( h264 )..which uses YUV 420?


I haven't got camera yet, but would like to start thinking of hoops I should be prepared to jump through for HD stuff on CS3.


In the 'export' stage...maybe I should use frameserver ?


Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Thanks !

    Cineform is your best bet if you own Neoscene (Its EOL now)

    It will convert to Cineform avi which is 4.2.2.

    Your best option is to upgrade Premiere and pc or find a descent converter that will convert to dv-avi.

    Maybe this one will do the job, download the trial ;

    I do not think CS3 and a dual core will handle HD well.

    I use HDV which is not as heavily compressed as H.264.

    Cineform worked quite well in CS3 but I did use a dual Xeon.

    Download Neoscene trial and see how it works for you.
