A quick test video with the Panasonic GH5 shot with VLOG 10-bit @ 150mbps. Audio was from a Sennheiser wireless mic sent over XLR to the DMW-XLR1adapter. Grading and processing was with a demo version of Final Cut Pro. I shot it all manual except the focus, which I have plans for in the future — that wasn’t the point of this test.
I think the end result looks really nice and smooth and I’m quite happy with the outcome.
Even though I mentioned that I was going to use Adobe Premiere Pro, I think I’m going to switch over to using Final Cut Pro X. The encoding speed is so much faster that it’s worth it for me to switch and re-learn a new package. It’s the difference between a 5-minute render of a 1:45 clip compared to a 45-second render. I’m sure I’ll have more to say on this later.
