I realize this is a very broad and complex subject - but can anyone point me to some overview reference material to get a grasp on what I need to know about HD to do post work on it?
One of the jobs will be shot with a VariCam in DVCPRO HD. But I guess I'm looking for an overview of popular HD formats (DVCPRO, HDV, DVCAM, etc???) - what cameras people generally are shooting on these days, and what is involved to work with this footage in post.
How does HD compression effect pulling keys or tracking? Things like that.
Any leads to good sources for information, format specs, etc. would be GREATLY apprecaiated - thanks!
