Random HD Clips: The Second

Posted on 2009-06-07 at 17:29 in Random, Videos by Robbi-985.

Here’s a second batch of high-resolution randomness. YouTube has made the sync absolutely ridiculously bad, this time, despite me making the video in the same way as the last one. It’s almost like you’re watching a video and listening to a different video’s audio in some clips. =/

Software / Camera info:

The camera is a Sony HDR-SR12E. This records interlaced video at 1920×1080. I had to scale the video down to 1280×720 for YouTube. Because the video is interlaced at 25 frames/sec, when deinterlacing and keeping both fields you can get 50 FPS video. The camera has a “Smooth Slow Rec” feature which lets it record at 100 FPS for 3 seconds. Again, when deinterlacing, you can expand this to 200 FPS (1/8x speed!) without losing any frames. However, the video quality is not so high when using Smooth Slow Rec.

I used TMPGEnc 4 to deinterlace and compress the original AVCHD (MTS) files. I used Premiere to arrange the videos. Recently I’ve realised that it is much easier to use VirtualDub and AviSynth (and the final result is better quality, not that it would be noticable on YouTube), so if I’ll be glad to say “Good riddance” to the insanely-bloated and unstable Premiere and TMPGEnc if I do another one of these HD compilation videos. (It also means I don’t need about 20 GB of HDD space just for temporary files.)
