What camera uses AVC-Intra?
I'm looking at either the Panasonic HPX3000 or the Sony F950 for rental, and I am trying to find the best post-workflow to go with beautiful "cine' images.
Maybe this is of some help: http://www.adobeforums.com/webx/.59b4a594/0
Funny, I just had a look at that. :-) Thanks Ruud
However as it stands AVC intra is NOT natively supported by CS 3.1.1, right?
There is an application available called P2 Forge.
It has the ability to open AVC-intra (and everything else including mxf) and encode it.
Check out the trial version.
What format would you encode the "AVC-Intra" into with this P2Forge codec. DVCPRO HD? Then would you not loose the horizontal definition as the maximum DVCPRO HD is 1440x1080 (for 25 fps interlaced) or even worse 1280x1080 (for 23,97 fps interlaced) and only 960 for 720p
Three ways (at least) to look at this.
1. What is the final output (result required) ie. web, DVD, feature film, TV broadcast etc...
2. Is it necessary to stay "native" from shoot to output? If so why and how?
2. Is DVCProHD good enough to do the job?
I also have an opinion that it pays to capture/film/photograph with best possible camera/medium/codec etc... This will show a quality difference in the final output. eg. shoot 35mm film and post produce DV is better than shoot DV and post produce DV. I guess shooting AVC-Intra would be considered a reasonable quality capture in comparison to some others.
Suggestion was just a possible workflow for the OP and I have not tried it because I do not have any AVC-Intra to test.
Both DVD, and we are working on theatrical distribution.
I want the best possible codec from the word go.
I'm sure Cineform supports it... cannot find it on their site though.
Thanks, at leats I know PPRO does not nativly support it, I think few NLE's do.
Do a test. It would be interesting to see the results and what sort of loss would be incurred.
BTW - my theory still stands that photographic image capture is the most critical phase of the process. A DVD is always only going to be a very compressed rendition of whatever.
