The default compression settings and the codec used can often cause annoying and unnecessary loss of quality...I have found this with motion video in the past.

Well, there are kevlar and similar alternatives, but leather is pretty good. However, the term vegan is often applied only to diet now, rather than all-round ethics as it was in the seventies.

Firstly, it's an apostrophe in "you're", not a hyphen. Secondly, it's called contracting, not hyphenating.

Because I'm a veggie, my brain's sharp enough to spot that. ;)

A Sony machine should be ok with DVD-Rs, but steer clear of +Rs. I'm assuming your DVD player is from the US.


I would say try another DVD and if that doesn't work try a different brand. I know...

Yeah, go with tape, on the most expensive format you can afford.

I agree. I have transferred straight to a USB drive before, with few problems, but FW800 would definitely ensure a smoother transfer.

I'm not familiar with TV Max, but you're capturing at full quality: 21GB is about right for two hours of footage. Is there an option/preference for compression?

You could try running the files...

Elegant and grand, with wonderfully clean lines: did you clean it up? The texture is really smooth and sharp.

Great shot.

1. In that restaurant, you are no longer an employee, until you return to work. Our roles change throughout the day, hence a taxi driver can be a passenger when on a bus.

Always Final Cut if you can afford it; it's a learning curve, but iMovie will develop bad editing habits if you intend to do a lot of editing. iMovie is fine for home movies, maybe even a YouTube or...

It's probably best to remove the DRM in future...burn the tracks you want to CD and then re-import before adding to the movie.

They should get some kind of mention, surely?

Use firewire and capture through iMovie.

The USB option might be handy if you want to transfer stills from a memory card (in which case iPhoto may detect the camera), but otherwise don't touch it.

That's a fair point, two-tone. If you are used to iMovie, then it's like learning to drive on the correct* side of the road, like we do over here in the UK!

But don't be afraid to play around. It's quite different from iMovie, as it's designed for the way that pros work, with all the usual pro commands, rather than the home-user simplification of iMovie....

Thanks for the heads-up, I wasn't aware of this. Looks good, but I wonder how it will translate to the UK - we usually end up paying about 40% more than the US price or have to do without a warranty!
