Something that I noticed about encoding to h.264 in premiere and after effects was that when you select the VBR/two pass encoding you get MUCH better results with h.264 than a single pass with VBR or CBR (no duh, right?) in terms of color shifts/gamma shifts. It wasn't obvious to me, but after that, the color problems were barely noticeable.
Exporting to H264 will always introduce a slight colour shift due to a gamma tag in the file header. At least, I didn't find any solution to export without a gamma shift. Neither in AE nor in any other video editing program. Maybe also have a look at this answer: http://video.stackexchange.com/a/10336/11423
I read up a bit and made some experiments with lossless codecs, getting decent results. I'd be interested in comments on this, especially if there are lossless or lossy alternatives that I overlooked. I tried the following codecs / formats in ffmpeg: Lossless Motion JPEG2000 / AVI ffmpeg -i test.avi -vcodec jpeg2000 -strict -2 -pred 1 test_jpeg2000.avi ...
They are all forms of hardware acceleration, which broadly, just means that specialized hardware is doing things faster than the basic CPU normally could. The exact nature of what each type of acceleration does depends entirely on the software you are using and the hardware you are using. Some hardware is very purpose specific. Something like Intel ...
I have used both on my Ninja Blade with my C100, no real difference in quality across drastically different circumstances (night vs day). Pro Res works better on Mac, DNXHD works better on Windows. It all comes down to your OS, and whether you have to share the files with broadcasters (in which case I would use DNX as a lot of editors use Avid). Other then ...
Well first off, the C100 Mk I DOES NOT offer an MP4 option, only a AVCHD option. I'm assuming you meant the MKII as you said 'recently bought'. If you look at the specs of the C100 MK II you'll see in MP4 mode you can't record interlaced, but in AVCHD you can (but you don't have to if you are at 28 mbps). So basically you can't go wrong (aka get interlaced ...
