Possibly HD-SDI. Even then there could be issues. It's my understanding that Premiere's DVCPro HD support is built around the .mxf file format used on solid state P2 cards. I don't think the tape decks use that format.
This is all speculation, of course.
We have a Panasonic AJ-HD1400 with Firewire. That deck's always been flaky when it comes to the Firewire port.
We can acquire SD tapes thru that port, but not HD. To capture HD, we need to use it's HDSDI port.
I did, however, make it "force" an SD signal thru the Firewire port, regardless of the tape format, so we can capture from an HD source, but the deck outputs DV SD.
wild - so do i shoot the cameraman ? or tell him i can't use his format ( this is the 2nd time we have an incompatability issue)
experience is something you get just after you need it...
I'd shoot the producer. It's his job to work out these kinds of details before hand.
his pictures are pretty good and he has become a friend of the subject of the doc. www.ccoproductions.com
but u r right!
i am the Producer - i told the cameraman that i wanted HD 1080
i got 720p and a deck i can't configure
Ah. Then I'd make him work it out, at his expense.
good answer - im thinking of paying off and never seeing him again
- guess im a woose
a "woose" and a "nancy" are the same around the parts I come from.
(comes from the term "nancy -boy")
