Dslr Volunteer Video for Local Church
I had the joy of making this quick video to thank the volunteers of Grace EV Free Church in La Mirada. These workers do such a great job and the students and parents give them thanks.
Shot to thank the wonderful volunteers at Grace EV Free Church in La Mirada.
The making of:
It was shot and edited by Brian A Petersen on a Canon 5D Mk3 using a 50mm lens and an Audio Technica boom through a Juice Box convertor. Edited in Final Cut Pro 7.
The video was shot during one of our services by walking around to meet various people and the edit was done in one night. The footage was transferred onto my Mac and was imported. I used the raw h.264 footage from the camera as I wasn’t able to log and transfer to a 422 lt file from the CF card that I had.
I found that the the Canon 5D MK3 footage was crashing my FCP 7 repeatedly and took me several hours to figure out the issue. I haven’t had issues with other DSLR footage especially as I normally use my Canon 60d for most videos I do. After a couple hours of having FCP crash every ten minutes, I found that the Perian plug in for QuickTime was the issue that I had previously installed to work with flv and window clips on my Mac. After uninstalling the plugin, I was able to edit and export without issue.
