    Is volume 1 Two Disks, or is there a Volume 2 that makes up the second disk? Does the 60 bucks include Volume 2 as well?

      Volume 1 is two discs.

      The first disc covers all of the camera menus and settings; Barry takes you through each menu item in detail, including variable frame rates, shutter speeds, gamma curves, recording modes -- everything.

      The second disc explains all of the switches and inputs on the camera, and also all of the MCR Mode menus. There is also a set of Scene File settings examples.

            Still to be determined. A number of things have to line up before we'll know.

            But Volume 1 is the meat, the bread and butter -- it's everything about operating the HVX, from all of the buttons and switches on the camera to each and every menu item -- what they do, and how to use them. It's the DVX DVD for the HVX, only better and more in-depth.

              There are a few key pieces that need to fall in place before we undertake volume 2. One was FCP 5.1.2, a total revamp of the FCP P2 interface. If we'd shot volume 2 before that came out, we'd all be looking a bit silly right about now!

                  Just a head's up.

                  I've just completed viewing the "scene file" segment on Disc 2.

                  I've learned more in 40 minutes than in the previous six months.

                  The HVX BootCamp DVD is the DVD you keep.

                            Is this the same info as in the HVX book or is there additional insight?

                              Many of the same topics are covered.

                              But the advantage of DVD is there's a great deal which just can't be demonstrated on paper which can be on the TV screen. Barry not only tells you what to do, but shows you what it does, and you can see immediately how it will affect your work.

                              Like David S. says above, it's one thing to read about it. But actually seeing it work adds another level of understanding.

                              Variable frame rates, for example, sound good on paper, but when you actually see it work, it's a "Whoa!" moment. Or, seeing an immediate difference between gamma curves or master pedestal settings -- esepcially as they look on TV -- adds a dimension you just can't get in static form.

                              By now there are quite a few people out there who have seen it -- let's open it up. What do you guys think? How's the presentation?
