Thread: hey this weddingdoccumentry i been workin on, has really grainy footage...

  1. Default hey this weddingdoccumentry i been workin on, has really grainy footage...

    i have the HVR-V1U and im still not aware if im capturing the footage right, another videographer told me to use these settings

    Frame size of 1440x1080
    Upper field interlacing (i wasnt sure where this was could someone tell me?)
    The capture setting should HDV
    Device control Sony HDV

    i did that and captured my footage, however in some areas i was gettin really grainy stuff. I know the dark areas are goin to be grainy, but if you go 1:36 in the movie i uploaded and notice how bad the blacks are in that footage


    thanks for any help

    Can you link to a short piece of the raw video - not comopressed any more - I can see loads of compresion artifacts but these appear to be mp4 compression artifacts from vimeo or your compression for upload.

    The first shot of the astonishingly lovely babe is hideously underexposed.

    Blacks are one of the things that are really crap in consumer digital video.

    I like your style of wedding video - I think a more documentary approach is far more persuasive than the normal offerings.

    To get good results with cheap digital video you have to be obsessed with good lighting.

    Compression artifacts just about sums it up.
