This 3 minute video was shot on the JVC HD100 HDV video camera at 720p30. The video was strongly affected with Film Effects to give a very special look. StereoImages is a celebration of an audiophile's favourite toys... Produced by Graeme Nattress.

Film Effects - Movies

These two movies show all the Film Effects V2.0 presets:

G Film Plus Presets Movie (12MB)

G Film Extra Presets Movie (4MB)

The above movies were shot on a Sony PDX10 DVCAM camera in it's 16:9 widescreen mode. The PDX10 is a normal NTSC video camera that shoots normal NTSC 60i. Film Effects was applied to the clip and each of the presets were chosen to show you the effects they produce. Because the clip is for the web, not for TV, the 60i to 24p mode in Standards Conversion was used instead of the similar mode in Film Effects. The Standards Conversion converts 60i to 24p using the same algorithm as Film Effects and produces the same quality results, but the end movie is 23.98fps rather than 29.97fps which Film Effects produces. This is because Film Effects adds 3:2 pulldown to the 24p to make it work in a normal NTSC timeline.
