This weekly course covers the most common questions videographers encounter when shooting and editing with DSLR cameras, from choosing a frame size and frame rate to understanding moiré. Authors Rich Harrington and Robbie Carman will also help you understand the impacts of compression and the difference between cropped (or micro 4/3rds) and full-sized sensors in cameras, and much more. This continual FAQ guide is a handy way to find the answers to the questions that plague you the most.
We've got the phone here, >> Yep. >> And if I hit share, it's going to post it. >> You could, you could email it. You could tweet it. You could do whatever. The problem that I have with that, is that it's not proceeded in some sort of compression on it. It's taking from it's original form, to get it up to your you know, your Facebook page, your Twitter page wherever. >> Yeah and they did add AirDrop. >> Very cool. >> Which is cool. >> Yeah. >> So that's going to give you the ability to send the files but it converts it to a 30 frame per second file. It like throws away all that info, and you're like, but I shot it that way for a reason. >> Right. >> In order to get this on your computer, you're going to use a piece of software that you might not launch very often.
>> I do. I think it's pretty cool. >> Alright. >> But it's iPhoto. People think about iPhoto as. >> iPhoto for video? >> Right, it's that free app, it comes with every Mac. Of course, it must be, you know, cause it's an iApp, it must be very simple, not all that functional, doesn't do what pros need it to do. But I think, you know, along with Aperture, and Lightroom and stuff, it's a pretty good tool to use. >> Yeah, and it actually sees the content on your iPhone. Now, if you are a PC user, there are utilities, plus you can actually set up your phone to browse as just a hard drive. There's lots of ways to hack into there. But basically, we're going to go in and we're going to want to find this.
So we plug the phone in. It shows up. And it's going to scan the drive. >> Yeah. And just keep in mind that with iPhone it's not just photos. It's also going to recognise the videos that you record as well. >> Yeah. So here's everything that we did. So let's go here towards the end. And we're going to see a shot that we did yesterday with Jason. And we're going to see the shot we just did. So let me grab that one. And I am just going to basically click on it and say, Import Selected. >> Yep. >> And earlier when I was testing, I already imported the shot...
>> Yep. >> With Jason. >> Yep. >> They both come into library. Now, this is basically USB 2. >> Yeah. >> So, it's only so fast. Hopefully, they will start to upgrade this process to USB 3. But it pulls it in. >> Yep. >> And you can always tell when that's working. You know, it'll say, you've got the little blue line. Now, when that's done and it pulls it in, it gives you the choice to keep or delete. >> Yeah. And this is why you had 3,035 photos on your, and videos, on your iPhone. Usually, I just verify, it's a little scary. I like to verify that they're over there first, but most of the time I'll do Keep Photos and then delete them later.
But, we can just keep the photos for now. >> Yeah. Yeah. So, we're there. >> Yup. >> There's the last import. >> Yup. If I just pull this to the side, here's how hard it is. Oh there it is. >> And look at that, it's a .mov file that you can use wherever right? >> Yeah. >> It's an h264 encoded mov. Bring those in to Final Cut Pro 10, into Premiere and it'll work just fine. >> And we hit Get Info and you see. >> Yep. >> That it is. 119.97 frames a second. >> That's pretty good. >> I don't know why it's not exactly 120, but hey, let's go.
>> And it, and well, and it's precise, 119. And it's a H.264 file. >> Yeah. >> It is 1280 by 720 in this mode. >> Yeah, so let's go ahead and just play one of these. Let's see what we got. So that's obviously a little faster than real time. >> Yeah. It's 120 frames per second. And it just has that hyper real look. >> Yeah. It's crazy. >> Where it is actually real time but it's more frames than we're used to seeing. So it looks, I mean, you know, he's got all those things. But let's take this into an app and, and convert that. So when we come back, we're going to go into an app you might use like Premiere Pro and show you how to interpret the footage and then, if you're using a different app, piece of cake, just do a search in the Lynda library.
You'll figure out how to use the footage. It's pretty easy.
