Hi all

My PC Windows 7 workflow is this:

1.    MLV captured on 5Dii  (usually 1872 x 796 @ 2:35:1 ratio)    edited for correct frame size

2.    MLV converted to DNGs via MLV Mystic

3.    Import DNGs into Lightroom 4 to grade

4.    Export from Lightroom 4 as TIFFS/Jpegs

5.    Import as Image Sequence in Quicktime 7 Pro (PC non ProRes! )  to export image sequence as H.264 or other

6.    Import video files into Sony Vegas 10 to edit/cut and add audio

7.    Final render (and upscale to 1920 x 816) from Sony Vegas to master

8.    Upload to Vimeo

My main problem at the mo is with step 5 - outputing from Quicktime Pro to a suitable format for editing in Sony Vegas

Does anyone have any suggestions about what codec to use in Quicktime. I have been using H.264 @ 20000kbps and then editing in Vegas and then rendering out at another H.264 @ 20000kbps. However, I sometimes find alot of "mush" and lost detail by the time it ends up on Vimeo - I'm aware of the compression added on upload. I can't help but thinking I'm losing something somewhere in the workflow - the most obvious place to me is the Quicktime conversion H.264 @20000kbps conversion.

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

ML developers are proper hardcore btw  ;)

Hi all

Finally decided it's about time to "officially" join the ML community.

I have been using ML for about 4 years now - started way-back-when with the 550d stuff.

I've done various video and photographic projects over the years - more photography probably, however I'm going back to video with a vengeance based upon the ever progressive 5D RAW video opportunities made available through the wisdom of the ML developers.

Recently I have managed to get everything I ever wanted in terms of kit - 2 x 5D2's (no 5D3's here thankyou very much), a good selection of IS lenses, Steadicam, Dolly and a Jib. And not forgetting a recent nightly build of MLV  ;)

So, there it is. BTW I am a secondary IT teacher by trade and regularly go on rants to my kids about the technology that big multi-nationals don't want you to know about.

Some of the bright kids can even spell Magic Lantern correctly too.

Looking forward to communicating with some of you folks and picking your brains.
