I'm playing around with Nikon D90 footage for the first time. It imports as an Apple Open DML Jpeg 1280x720, 24 FPS file. Any recommendation as to which Codec or sequence setting I should use to keep as much quality of the raw?
Thanks for your post. I understand that I have to convert the file to an editable format. I'm just wondering which of the different formats would keep me closest to the raw footage or be the least destructive.
I'm on a MacPro with FCP 6. I do not have an SDI connection or RAID Array drives, so uncompressed is out of the question. I wonder how much of a difference there is between uncompressed and Apple Prores, aside from a huge file size disparity. I think I will play with Apple Prores HQ.
