Canon gl2 questions
I have a canon gl2. The editing program that I use is adobe premiere pro. I am not quite satisfied with the way the footage turns out. I am wondering if anyone has any tips. Is my computers video card possibly to blame? I tried cleaning the video head. Any help would great.
err... if you want your video to look better, you just need to set up your shots better. white balance every shot, adjust everything manual you can. a gl2 on auto wont be very much better than a zr700 on auto.

I am not worried about colors. Its picture clarity I think could be better.
ask tanakaskier..... he knows
clean your heads. but settins I use are
Color Gain- Up 5,
Color Phase- 2 towards red
Sharpness- Down 3
Setup Level-Down 3
I also try and keep my shutter speed below 360, and my lense wide open. close to 1.6 as possible.
With CP off i sett white ballence then turn CP on. Use the LCD screen to get focus set (normaly kept on Auto) Then film with the view finder.
that sounds good, except turn the color down to -3 or so. Too much saturation = loss of detail.
Are you capturing with a firewire?
Is your computer really shitty?
Color correct your shots. Always color correct your shots. Use a tripod.
Its pretty simple to get....I can't think of any other reason why it could look bad...

I ude firewire and I think it's better
well first of all you have to use firewire to import into adobe, always film on manual, make sure that you are not overexposed and you are using white balance. I have never figured out the point of AE and what not. But use the zebra effect. that way you can see overexposure
I do use firewire. My computer isnt that shitty. It is a dell notebook that is only a couple years old. Does the fact that I am shooting in 16:9 affect things. I think I heard somewhere that the gl2 shoots a poor widescreen shot.
Well what ya need to do is Give me that gl2 for free. then your shit will look G
i is a steezeburgerz?
Maybe your Adobe import settings are messed up. It could be that the camera is giving perfect images to the computer but when the computer encodes it to AVI the settings are for low quality.
