Since I got my hv20 and started coming here I've been seeing some very high quality video. Today I was playing with the HDV setting and after a ton of hassles, I finally got Premiere to capture. I had two questions.
1. The quality of my video is very noisy (as seen in my screen grab) and doesn't have a lot of sharp detail. Is it due to light or something else? I know without knowing my settings, that may be a tough question to answer, but I'm still kind of noobish and not sure what settings affect this. Right now I've got it on HDV 24p with the TV shutter priority selected and manual white balance. I've had a lot of difficulty selecting the shutter speed and right now I don't have any numbers showing up to the right of the TV option. Can someone explain exactly what steps to take to edit this value?
2. We have to do some greenscreen footage and when I recorded some in DV mode, no matter how I backlit the subject and evenly lit the screen, I still had a good amount of fringe bleed. I thought that if I shot it in HDV, I'd have more edge pixels to work with and might get a cleaner key. Does this make sense or won't it really matter much?
