2 When Shooting Digital Video
Shooting Standard Definition Video at 29.97 FPS
The most basic workflow in Final Cut Pro involves shooting 29.97 FPS digital video on any DV format including DVC Pro 50, DVC Pro HD, and HDV(see Figure 2.1). Audio can be recorded directly to the camera tape. The video and audio can simply be captured to any drive, even a removable firewire drive. Generally, these projects are finished right on the editing computer; any color correction is preformed with Color, Final Cut Pro color-correcting plug-ins or third-party, color-correcting plug-ins. The project is simply printed back to DV tape in the shooting format and/or QuickTime movies are exported for compression and burning or copying to DVD.
