Yeah, this looks amazing. Is yours a PAL version of the camera? Was the some Magic Bullet color correction?

Please tell us some of what you did with this.

That looked pretty pro. You must have some experience in the video world.

i have the PAL version.

i shot it in shutter priority mode: 1/50
25p mode.
I used magic bullet for color correction and I edited it with vegas.
the sound is terrible because of the room i was in and the fact that i wasn't that close to the subjects.
maybe next time better sound.

maybe next time better sound...or...you could do an overdub in a studio setting...just a thought.

I just wondered how you (and others) make the movie so it is shown almost perfect. And it is very progressive in loading and playing. Almost no delay.

What program did you use to make it?

With what settings?

Sometimes the location you film at is perfect for video but terrible for sound (as in your case) so the answer would be to take the same actors/actresses and bring them into a recording studio and read the same exact lines over again (while watching their previously recorded video on a monitor). This way you have a more controlled environment and you can get the audio as perfect as you want. This takes a lot of practice...but it's done all the time in big budget movies.

The link jmalmsten tells it better than I do....Automated dialogue replacement (ADR).

The settings on the camera you can see them on a post I made earlier in this thread. I just edited it sony vegas 8 and saved it as a .wmv file.
1280x720
about 6000 kbps per second i think
cbr(second pass) i think

But I think because there was a lot of light in there and the camera didn't have to use the gain. That's why it looks clean, but i dont know for sure. I also filmed something else on cinema mode of where im living right now, but i didn't like it, there is not a lot of contrast in the cinema mode and it's too, i think they call it soft. But that's just me.

Thanks,
besides the quality (really) I also wonder how some movies pop up immediately and start playing. Most of wmv's I make, will need some time before they start.
But I can imagine that the upload speed (which is for my server about 1Mbps), is to low for a quick start.

looked pro! Location was perfect and camera placement was key. Actors pulled it off too.

good test!
