Two final notes. I believe the costs of higher resolution are vastly underestimated. Scan time will increase significantly with increased resolution. Transfer times increase, processing times increase. The expertise needed increases to get better quality. Storage and multiple backups increase. Consumer hard disk drives are not archival devices. Your children and grandchildren may not be able to retrieve images from a hard disk even 15 years from now. Increased image size means greatly increased cost.
Unfortunately, the article is right about consumer level scanners being inadequate for scanning negatives. I checked my own cheap scanner (Epson V500) and even though it is advertised as 9600DPI, it really only resolves around 1200DPI, just as the article suggests. I have a bunch of negatives that I would like to scan for the first & final time and I am considering renting equipment that does them justice.
At the museum where I work, we use images in two ways. The first is reproducing the image as artifact. In this case, we do little to no retouching or recolorizing, and show images at a 1:1 scale, or slightly larger if it will benefit the visitor experience. The second way is to apply some treatment, scaling, etc., to provide a different experience. This may be applying a color to images, making them a monotone image in the background, or making the image very large for impact. In the case of making images very large (e.g. 8-10 feet tall), I have found that we are often able to scan-in original images at sufficient resolution to scale them. If the image has already been scanned in at 300 dpi and the original is not available, the image is rarely big enough to print with good quality. Although this may seem obvious, it is important to note that depending on your final image use, you must allot potentially a significant amount in your budget and timeline to process images to render them usable at whatever size you are printing them at.
Refurb Manager Retrospekt Haley is the human form an Animal Crossing character would pick if things were reversed and they had to play us. In addition to hiring and training dozens of new team members over the years, she is also the final quality check on nearly every camera that heads out our doors.
I have chosen to use Pro Res LT for VHS capture. My current workflow is to capture directly to LT, then maybe bring into final cut 7 for some slight tweaks and re-organising, then to re-export out to LT for a final master.
I would probably not deinterlace on capture. I would capture interlaced so that you are getting as much data from the VHS tapes as possible. Edit interlaced and let FCP 7 do the deinterlacing for you, or deinterlace after outputting the final project. In general, capture at the highest quality possible, then process the media after capture is complete.
Billboard (TV): The final frame of a television commercial containing important branding and contact information such as logo, company and/or location photo or video, website, address, and/or telephone number.
Conversion Path: A description of the steps taken by a user of a website towards a desired end from the standpoint of the website operator or marketer. The typical conversion path begins with a user arriving at a landing page and proceeding through a series of page transitions until reaching a final state, either positive (e.g. purchase) or negative (e.g. abandoned session).
Digital Compositing: The process of digitally assembling multiple images to make a final image. Adobe After Effects, Apple Shake and Autodesk Smoke are digital compositing applications.
Dirty Track: A low quality track of audio that is not suitable for the final project, but recorded just for reference, so that better quality audio from a separate source can be synced up or recreated in post-production.
Final Cut: Refers to the last pass of video editing on a video project. The final cut encompasses all video, audio, and graphic elements and has been polished with effects and transitions.
Paper Edit: A document consisting of transcribed storyboards of your footage, which can be organized to create a paper version of your final cut. This document is great for the editing stage.
Photomontage: A video DVD of photos combined with music. This is usually produced at a video editing workstation by a professional video editor. Images frequently have dissolves for smooth transitions, and movements such as zooms, pans, and tilts may be applied.
Post-Production: Encompasses the entire editing and video-finalization process. Includes logging and capturing, editing, color correction, animation, sound design, voice over, encoding, dubs, etc.
Rough Cut: Refers to the first pass of video editing on a video project. Often, a rough cut will not include graphics, transitions, color correction, or sound design. It is usually just video clips chosen and arranged in rough order.
Style Sheet: A general term for the written description of the look and feel of various visual and graphic elements such as lower thirds and main titles, transitions, on-screen graphics, how interviews are framed and lit, color palette, style of cinematography etc.
VHS is still in use today but its popularity has significantly decreased. There are a number of reasons for this decline such as the introduction and popularity of superior movie distribution formats like DVDs (in 1997) and Blu-ray discs (in 2006). In 2003, sales of movies on DVD format surpassed those of VHSFootnote 4 and, finally, in 2006,Footnote 5 after a long run, the major movie studios stopped releasing movies on VHS.
The Digitization Set-up One workflow is shown in Figure 10. The simplicity of this set-up lies in the fact that the playback unit is also the digitizer and the end product is a movie DVD. Figure 11 shows an example of one of these units. One side is a regular VCR and the other is a recordable DVD drive. Internally, there is a device to convert the analog video to digital form. The options for units that contain internal analog to digital converters are limitedFootnote 22 (see Appendix C for suppliers) and the quality of the final result varies depending on how well the VCR portion plays the tape, the quality of digitization device within the unit, and the amount of signal correction that occurs.
The Digitization Set-up Two workflow is provided in Figure 14. More flexibility is provided with this option when compared to Digitization Set-up One, especially with respect to the selection of the type of player, signal correction that can be employed, external capture device and, finally, the type of storage media that can be used. However, with flexibility comes more complexity and added cost.
The final connections are between the digitization device and the computer. Most will connect to the computer by attaching a USB cable from the Output of the digitizer to a USB port in the computer. If using a device that converts to the DV format, it is connected to the computer via a Firewire IEEE 1394 connection.
To begin the digitization, open the Pinnacle software. Select the Import tab and a new window will open. Under Import From, select the Pinnacle 710 and the appropriate connection, either Composite (yellow cable for video and red and white cables for audio) or S-video (S-video cable for video and red and white composite cables for audio). Next, under Mode, select DV; under Import To, indicate where the digital video will be stored; and, finally, under Filename, provide an appropriate name for the file. Note that the file extension will be .avi. Next, the VHS tape is prepared and adjusted for tracking, as outlined above under Evaluation of Tape and Cassette Condition and Playing the Tape, and cued to the point where the capture will begin using the viewing screen associated with the Pinnacle software and paused. Click on Start Capture and then press Play on the VCR. Once the segment of the video to be captured has ended, click on the Stop Capture button to end the process and stop the playback of the VHS recording. 041b061a72
