DP1 + 1000W + Super Resolution = Love

The movie is self explanatory, not sure I need to write anything here. I do thou need to tell you one more time how to deal with your movies AFTER you’re done shooting. Btw in this particular shot you see some flickering and that’s due to 50Hz light. :) (or is it 60Hz?!)

You need to resize (upscale) your shoot first. This is good to do because of two reasons. First. Protect the 320×212 data that you have – try directly to make the data embedded into a bigger file. That way it’s easier to deal with your shot in Final Cut or Adobe Premiere or any other software that you like to use. Less risk of loosing data due to re-compression.

The second reason is that by rescaling with “super resolution” you will take advantage of the fact that the scale algorithms reads more frames in order to upscale and therefore you squeeze more detail than what each frame originally had. This is something no other software that I know of does by default. I usually upscale to DV PAL or NTSC resolution. Easier to work with standard numbers. :)

Before posting to web I use Adobe flash converter and a high bitrate. Mostly to end up with a small file that I can send to viddler without another re-compression.

    Great video. What kind of light is that? 1000W?! That’s crazy. My 1000W Arri light is huge, hot and not nearly so portable. I’d love to get some more information on that guy.

    Thank you Carl! It’s the first time I see “light in action”. I’m new in this crazy world of photography and I have to learn a lot of things.
