  1. Digital Video Photography • IBM PC Club • June 2004 • Bob Stephens • bob-stephens@pacbell.net Editing and Equipment

  2. Introduction • Bob’s Background • Digital Video Photography Class • At SeniorNet, Almaden Center

  3. OverviewThe Past

  4. OverviewTwo Basic Areas VCR

  5. Three Basic Areas PC

  6. Three Basic Areas - Plus Mini DV, D8 (DV), Analog Cameras Micro DV is Discontinued Some Vendors Ulead Adaptec Sonic Factory Pinnacle Adobe Windows Movie Maker 2 WMM2 (XP) PC Analog Analog +

  7. Three Basic Areas – Connect VCR Analog Input 1394/Firewire/iLink – Digital Composite, S Video – Analog Analog Converter card or box 1.0GHZ+, 256MB 13GB/Hour of DV Video 1394 for DV Analog card USB 2.0 for photos 2nd Video Capture drive PC PVR CD Writer DVD Writer VCD (VHS quality) SVCD (better) DVD (best) VCR DVD Player

  8. DV Camcorders Are they good cameras? Digital Cameras Are they good camcorders? Features? Video Editors What do we want to accomplish? Features Cameras and Editors

  9. Dispelling the Myth • DV produces 720x480 pixel pictures (broadcast quality) • Some cams have up to 1.5M+ pixels for digital pictures • Would you buy a 1.5MP camera today? • Camcorders DO NOT make good digital cameras • And digital cameras DO NOT make good camcorders

  10. Dispelling the Myth • Most Digital Cameras produce low resolution/frame rate video, many without sound (but within that limitation they serve a useful purpose) • A few do produce acceptable video. The Fuji S602 when combined with the 1GB IBM Microdrive will produce a very reasonable 680x480 15 minute video with sound. And up to 30 minutes at lower resolution (VHS), OR about 3000 high resolution pictures.

  11. Mini DV Camcorder Features • Up to 20x Optical Zoom • 500x Digital Zoom – Of very limited value • Viewfinder and LCD displays • Battery life and HOW do you charge the batteries (YES you’ll need 2 batteries) • Pass though (digital to/from analog)

  12. Show Video Zoom Video Show Camcorder

  13. Video Editor Features • Capture Input • Delete unwanted portions of the video (one estimated is 50% of the video) • Merge multiple video clips • Add Titles • Add Transitions • Add Pictures • Add Sound • Preview video • Create Viewable video

  14. Video Editor Features • Enhance video (change color, double the speed, etc.) • Add credits (scrolling credits) • Authoring for DVD’s • Menus • Motion backgrounds • Output

  15. Show Surfing Video

  16. Video Editor Features • Make Output • Save as a file (various formats) • Burn a VCD or SVCD • Burn a DVD • Save to DV camcorder • Analog output (camcorder, VHS, etc.)

  17. A basic video that contains some of our desired features Show Bogey and Friends

  18. All Camcorders Composite Analog Tape Source VCR

  19. Passthrough Analog camcorder DV Composite Analog PC 1394 Digital Tape Not Used for Passthrough VCR

  20. Digital 8 or D8 Camcorders 8mm Analog Tape (Read only) 8mm Digital Tape May Support Passthorugh PC 1394 Tape Source

  21. Canopus Breakout Box

  22. Show VHS Tivo Comparison Video

  23. Minimum PC • 600MHZ, 1.0GHZ+ better • 128MB, 256MB+ better • Lots of disk space, 40GB marginal • Consider 200GB for $100 as a second drive for video • Video, sound, 1394, analog capture card, USB 2.0 • Check your video software, I’d use their recommended PC, not their minimum PC

  24. PC OS’s • Most to least desirable – XP, W2K, 98SE, ME • Very limited NT Support • Be aware of the 4GB file size limit of FAT32. XP or W2K with NTFS recommended

  25. Why XP? • The most stable Windows OS • The best supported OS • Plug and play • Expanded device support • Supports NTFS file system • Includes WMM 2 • Second choice for video is W2K

  26. NTFS File System • Stability and Recovery from errors • Efficient for small file sizes, directory cluster size, file lookup • Up to 8 Peta bytes (1,000,000 GB’s) • No 4GB file size limitation

  27. Vendor Editor Software • $100 Range • Digital Video Creator 80 (Dazzle), Dazzle recently merged with Pinnacle • DVD Movie Factory 2 (Ulead) • DVD Picture Show 2 (Ulead) • Screenblaster Movie Studio (Sonic Foundry) • Studio 9 (Pinnacle Systems) and other related products. • Video Explosion Deluxe (Nova) • Video Studio 7 (Ulead) • Video Wave 5 (Roxio)

  28. Vendor Editor Software • $300 Range – May contain breakout box hardware • Digital Video Creator 150 (Pinnacle/Dazzle) • Hollywood DV Bridge (Pinnacle/Dazzle) • Studio Deluxe (Pinnacle) • Studio Moviebox (Pinnacle) • Above $300 • Liquid Edition 5 (Pinnacle) • Premier (Adobe) • Vegas 4.0 (Sonic Foundry)

  29. Video Player Software • You’ll also want to be able to view video on your PC (besides the video editor preview window) that’s quick and easy to use • Windows Media Player (WMP version 9) that comes with the Microsoft OS’s will do the job, in addition to many others

  30. Commercial DVD Format • Single Sided, Dual Layer (DVD9) • Top layer 4.7GB • Bottom layer 3.8GB • Total 8.5GB

  31. Recordable DVD Format • Single Sided, Single Layer (DVD5) • 4.7GB • Dual Format – and +, Both formats are popular • Four Media’s DVD–R/RW and DVD+R/RW • DVD-RAM, Not nearly as popular as the Dual Format’s

  32. Recordable DVD DL Format(Dual Layer) • Just starting to become available for consumers • Cost about $300 • Media cost? • Software support?

  33. DVD Labels (physical labels) • When compared to CD’s • DVD’s have higher RPM • DVD’s have higher temperatures • General Advice – DON’T LABEL DVD’s • Use permanent pen • Or printable DVD’s with printer

  34. Windows Movie Maker 2 • Screen shots from WMM2 • The functions of WMM2 are typical of video editors

  35. WMM2 – 3 Windows

  36. Notice the Preview Window, Collections and Timeline
