HDV Editing: A different take…
Over the past few years, HDV has given us lightweight and affordable cameras. Just ask anyone who shoots video for a living why they like these new cameras. These range from small palm corders to lightweight shoulder cams.The next time you see a professional video shooter, look at the camera they are using. Chances are it’s a small high quality HDV camera from Canon, Sony, or JVC.
From the Beginning:
I have had the opportunity to work with HDV from the beginning. With our 3rd party plug-in partners, we actually had support in earlier versions of Premiere (6.5) with excellent codecs like CineForm’s AspectHD (still my favorite software based HDV solution for Windows users) and later on, MainConcept’s MPEGPro and the NEW MPEGProHD.

One of the most popular questions I get from various Final Cut Pro users is what can they expect to gain from installing Production Premium CS3 and what will it mean to their future workflows. One thing that is perfectly clear is that the FCP users should expect to view Production Premium CS3 as an add-on to their current software and not a replacement to their favorite NLE editing app. The same would be true for any longtime Avid Xpress Pro or Avid Media Composer Mac user as well.
For some, Production Premium CS3, and more specifically, PremierePro CS3 OSX (MacTel) will do everything they need from an NLE stand point , but for many FCP and Avid users they will want to continue to use the app they’ve been using and trusting for years. Many FCP and Avid Mac users will more than likely end up buying Production Premium strictly from a price/value standpoint and later realizing that it’s a very capable mac video suite on it’s own and when you add it your current workflow you’ll be surprised what you can do.
