Okay. I tried to read this whole thing, but i have a feeling i accidently fastforwarded myself to the final page.
I'm just looking for affirmation in my thinking.
I created this video for my church. [ame="http://www.vimeo.com/6432267"]The NT Experiment on Vimeo[/ame]
Aside from the color sorta blowing, i also noticed that if you look at his lips, i'm getting funky lines.
I shot using my HV30 at the normal HDV mode, edited a bit in final cut express, and then at some point in the export process found a button for deinterlace, and clicked it.
Now, if i am understanding this forum right, i should have shot in HDV PF30 mode because 1. i wasn't capturing fast motion (or desiring slow motion) and 2. i was putting the video online.
So if i had done that, i should have (this was my first video...) shot like that, imported STILL as a 1080i60 project, told it to not choose one of the fields...(am i right on this part), and never checked any kind of deinterlace at the end.
and that would fix the funny lip lines. missing anything? (or dead wrong?)
if i simply hadn't selected the deinterlace at the end with my the 60i setting, would that have worked or would i get a different funky problem?
btw, so far i love this forum! learning a ton from reading up on this stuff.
