Wow, thats a long time for rendering,,, not sure of the viability of doing that here (Perth, Western Australia) as we do get power cuts from time to time.
What was the difference once you had completed the transcode?.
Once you have filmed in 4K what is the best setting in 1080 to get the best from it.
Am I right in my thinking that when filming in 4K at 30p camera shake is much more pronounced that at 60p so one has to be more careful.
Once again, thanks for the advice
It reduced the file size from 37.5GB to 22GB. at 30P at highest conversion quality setting. Picture quality is comparable I see no obvious differences but have not done side by side comparisons.
I edit in 4K and make a 4K master of the video.
That can the be used to reduce to conventional HD. However I rather use the original edit to directly go to HD at 1920x1080 28Mb 60P
Editing in 4K is only practicable in PD if the "Shadow Files" are enabled and that can take hours.
Worked for the last few days on a 45min 4K edit of our cruise.
I was on of the first few to lay my hands on this camera and I am still stunned by the quality video it produces.
Yes 60P would be an advantage, especially when panning. But keep in mind that most commercial DVDs have a frame rate of only 24, 25 or 30 frames and there are no problems.
Some motion problems when panning for example can be traced to not disabling the camera stabilizer beforehand.
Camera shake is my biggest adversary with this camera, the X900M was just incredible in that respect having a 5 axis correction.
On a few scenes I had to correct shake in PD13, it works great but I go from 4K likely to 3 K because of the cropping. However nearly all of my problems only occur once I exceed 50% zoom and I do that rarely.
Unless you are planning to shoot and edit in 4K I would just wait and use the 920. But it is unlikely that 4K at 60P will soon come along in this price range, and if it does it will place an even higher burden on the editing process.
The only time going from 264 to265 would make sense is in a 4K BluRay situation
