1. Plug in the camera in a usb-port of your Mac.
2. Import the clips with XDCAM Transfer.
it's not possible to make it easier.

Do you know "direct menu"?

With XDCAM Transfer you can convert them to quicktime-files compatible with FCP. That's the only purpose of XDCAM Transfer.
sorry, I edited after you posted.
You're calculating with 3 bits per pixel. But you should do it with at least 24 bit, if we assume 8 bit per color-channel.
So we have 1920*1080*25fps*24bit = 1244160000 bit/s = 1.24 giga bit/s

If you want that half stop, then simply use gain. That half stop of 720p itself just comes from implicitly added gain in the downconversion-process. So in terms of noise there won't be a difference....
Perhaps you can use it with some latency as a real-time hdv-camera over firewire.

Of course I can test it, but if 1080p gives better 720p than in-camera 720p, obviously 1080p will give better SD than (in-camera) 720p.

I now tested it. The first grab is 1080p with 0db and f3.4 downscaled in Photoshop to 720p. The second grab is in-camera 720p with 0db and f4.0.
The first grab has obviously less in noise in the...

I will do a test right now..., but let's talk briefly about the background of it:
Did you realize that 720p has higher sensitivity than 1080p? Let me express it briefly in this way: Manual 1080p to...
I tried to correct it with Photoshops curves by making the reds on the dark side darker.
My current favourite:
cine2 became my new favourite, because its clipping-point is exactly at 100%, so it...
Can you post an example? I want to try to fix it with rgb-curves.

1080p and 720p both use 35mb/s, so there's no difference in storage-space needed.
720p will be faster to post-process because there are less pixels, but I still would always prefer to capture 1080p,...
I guess we could actually discuss, what latitude means to us. Because (good) downscaling reduces noise because of filtering, I would suggest a latitude per resolution concept.
What do you think...

Is this forum really that morbid? Where am I here? All I want to do is to exchange objective arguments. But what I receive is silliness and insults. Can you recommend a forum to me with more cool and...

Let's examine the constructiveness of a part of this dicussion:

Yes, I'm very fascinated by the big step forward done by introducing the ex1 to the market. But I'm not a ex1-Messiah, but just a guy who's fascinated by all kinds of technical stuff. I'm studying...

I love your avatar-picture! Where can I find a higher resolution-version of it? :)
This is even more disturbing:

I'm fighting against delusion. But I realize it's like water drops on burning rocks.

Noel explicitly talked about editing DVCPRO-HD on a DVCPRO-HD timelime, so I implied that.
But that pixel-independent advantage of DVCPRO-HD just doesn't exists. I just tested it:
I've got a...

You can't acquire 1920x1080 from hpx3000 with DVCPRO-HD, because DVCPRO-HD doesn't support 1920x1080. Period.
hpx3000s 1920-signal will be downsampled to 1280 or 1440 before DVCPRO-HD-encoding.
12-11-2008, 11:54 AM
You agree, that 1280x1080 is less rendering-work than 1920x1080? And so it will take less time? But it will be less sharp?
