    dvx100b

    i use a dvx100b and i understand that its a standard definition camera, but sometimes when i upload my clips the quality looks fuzzy or interlaced. any comments? is this common for dvx users?

    Error: Not enough input

    sometimes?

    what did you do different to the other times when the upload works?

        heres a quick sample i just uploaded like 15 minutes ago...lemme know if you think my quality can look any better. check out some of my other videos as well, all filmed with a dvx. i just personally feel that i can get better quality out of my dvx100b

          you're not capturing correctly
          if you're going to shoot 24 (you should) shoot 24pa, capture with pulldown removal, edit in 23.976 fps timeline. crispy

          don't shoot 24p

          if you want to use the footage you have now open it in cinema tools and conform it

          if you must shoot 30p capture it regularly (no pulldown)

            how do i create a timeline with 23.976fps? i think thats what im doing wrong. also i like to shoot on f3 which is scene spark, is that 24pa?

              its so much that has to play together

              the framerate and mode your filming with
              the editing software you use,
              the presets (i make my own)
              the export (uncompressed if possible)
              the compression

              (and please, forget about interlacing...DON'T DO IT)

                don't know what the default scene files are. get into hte scene files and check the progressive settings - you'll want it at 24pa for the crispiest. play around with the gamma and master ped til you find a look you like. starscream is right though it's all about the interplay - for example if you're shooting 24pa/24p you will want to use a 1/48 shutter (twice the framerate)

                  so ive set it to 24pa and my master at -6. ive had my gamma set for cinelike but i still feel like my image isnt as crisp as it can get. would you mind posting some of your most preferred settings for best shooting with your dvx?

                    honestly the settings won't necessarily affect the 'crispness' - just make sure that the sharpness isn't too low and the contrast is on point. don't pan too fast if you're using 24pa - that could be a factor. are you using final cut to capture? make sure you use the correct pulldown - 2:3:3:2 for 24pa or regular (3:2) for 24p, 30p, or 60i. make sure you're editing in the correct timeline as well (go to sequence settings when you make a new sequence.)

                    this was filmed with the og dvx100 with cine-like and master ped down at around -5 -6. as you can tell the biggest factors that affect the look of the clips is the lighting

                      play around with shutter speed too - shooting high shutter speed at 24p will give you really jittery/aggressive clips that can match a song or skaters style better than any editing can

                        i capture with DV NTSC advanced (2:3:3:2) pulldown removal, 720 x 480, NTSC DV (3:2), anamorphic 16:9, input: AG-DVX100B, no device for quicktime audio settings. compressor is DV/DVCPRO - NTSC and 29.97 fps, is this what you use? i really like the quality you upload with btw, mine can look like that too?
