EMF Sci Fi Film (main page)
I need to make another page for the Sci Fi Film...
To make it easier to navigate between pages about the film, I have made them into subpages. If you are starting a new page, please make sure its name starts with "EMF Sci Fi Film/" and start the page with {{Sci fi navbox}}.

For example, to start a page about Brian Blessed's role in the film, type "EMF Sci Fi Film/Brian Blessed Role" in the search bar, click to create the page, then write:

"{{Sci fi navbox}}

In the EMF Sci Fi Film, Brian Blessed is going to reprise his role as....." etc.

You are welcome to edit the film as per the script or mash it up into something else entirely

Format specifics

We are shooting 50 frames a second as this is the most useful frame rate we can shoot if we want to slow down any of the shots.

Recording format (camera): 1080p50 AVCHD 48khz sound (can also record 1080p25 if low light becomes an issue, but will need to transcode this up to 1080p50 for editing on a 1080p50 timeline)

Recording format (sound): 24 bit PCM 48Khz

Final export: probably 1080p25 as most web video services can play this.

Ingest specifics

Robert McWilliam our Data technician is in charge of this.

  • Sync video to clean audio using Dual Eyes (I have a copy of this) A free trial of Plural Eyes will also do the job
  • SD card clones uploaded to server (read-only) + copied to local HDD ideally using rsync
  • Synced & transcoded footage uploaded to server + copied to local HDD.

Need to have a conversation at the outset regarding whether conversion to prores is sensible or if trascode only applies to ensuring all footage is at 1080p50.

Transcoding programme will be MPEG Streamclip. It is free, please download a copy.

If editing in Premiere the following may need to be downloaded to enable reading of prores files: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=5744
