Just wanted to invite some additions to my ‘Videography apps’ blog post.
This is something I really would love to have read when I started out as a videographer and I am very keen to make it as useful as possible.
Anything that I am missing or forgetting?
Have a read... http://iamjohnbarker.com/blog/videography-apps
i have a question regarding workflow. In a course about video marketing, the guy presenting the course said that the conversion which is built in editing softwares sucha s imovie and screenflow is not that great.
Therefore, he suggested to export the final edits in the highest possible resolution and then convert them using other softwares. He suggested using handbreak.
I exported a movie using the lossless option, and the movie is about 2 Gb in size. It's pretty big to upload to handbrake.

How can the new digital cinema cameras help the independent filmmaker or solo videographer enhance their business?
I am partnering with another editor and am not familiar with Final Cut Pro 7. We use one 20 minute low res clip for our project. We set up a sequence that matched the video - cut it up as our new project. Now we want to replace that 20 minute low res original clip with our high res 20 minute clip (identical content). We are having trouble trying to figure this out. We tried to disconnect the media and reconnect it with our new one and that worked fine. The problem is that the sequence does not match the new high res video. Our new footage is 1280 x 1080. Any suggestions?

Hello out there!
My name is Ben and I want to get a better understanding of how video professionals use transcripts in their workflow. I work for a small family owned transcription company called Word Wizards and I want to know more about how the pros, and "joes", really use transcripts. Here is my current understanding of the most common application for using transcripts in film making.

Hello everyone. I'm new here, but I love the site and I love the forums.
I've worked in independent film for about 4 years, but mostly as a co-producer and sometimes Unit Production Manager. I'm just now getting my hands dirty with the technical stuff. I've shot weddings before and want to buy a prosumer camcorder for future weddings and short movies. The whole wedding thing kind of rules out the DSLRs that are so popular now.
Whether working in film, video or digital media you must have a process for preparation, acquisition and processing of your imagery. Having 'workflow protocols' are the steps you take to make sure you're using the right camera for the job, have all the proper settings selected on your camera prior to shooting and that there's a clear record of what images, video or digital files came from where prior to getting them into an editing bay.
