Rendering in 1080p takes up more resources than 720p, so it is normal that your render is slower than usual, even though your new hardware is superior. 1280x720 = 921600 pixels per frame, 1920x1080 = 2073600 pixels per frame. The software has to render 2.25x the amount of pixels per frame, so you can expect it to take about twice as long. the 770 GTX has ...

I use my Nikon DSLR to record videos, so I'll share some pointers with you. DSLR are capable of producing very good video images. This is thanks to their sensor size and optics, compared to many handycams. However, since their primary use is not video, there are some things to keep in mind: I don't recommend using autofocus. It is slow (Nikon in Live ...

As currently stated, the answer is, you can't. The only thing special about that video is that it is very well planned out and coordinated with lots of lighting making it almost certainly outside your budget to reproduce something similar. The video work itself is all actually fairly basic. Any camera with a decent dynamic range and sharpness could ...

You're a photographer, so you think that this is all about the pictures. But, although almost everyone looks the same at all parties (Halloween excepted), sometimes someone says something new and clever. So sometimes good sound is better than great pictures, if you can't afford both. If good sound is important at your event rent a decent external microphone ...

bmargulies, There are few questions here: Are you looking for a multicam setup? If so the two cameras are unlikely going to match unless you are willing to put in time to post production work.

Most current graphics cards will have HDMI output and a HDMI to SDI convertor might be cheaper solution than a DVI to SDI.

I'm using a GoPro Hero 3+ too Even on my fast MacPro Westmere (mid-2012) setting your GoPro to resolutions above 1440 will slow playback and rendering. Going up to 2K and 4K might not even work at all. Also, if using the ProTune setting on your GoPro, make sure you utilise the free GoPro Studio conversion tool to get vastly improved picture quality from ...

You are best off to convert from a supported format (DVI, HDMI, maybe even DisplayPort) to SDI. SDI cards are not designed for gaming, they are designed for workstations and video. You aren't going to get a good quality gaming graphics card with SDI outputs.

Scratch disks should never be external. I'm not sure where you heard that. External drives can be used for long term asset storage, but it is best to move assets local to work on them. The point of scratch disks is to be the highest speed work area you have available to work from. Scratch disks are used for data that needs to be moved in and out of ...

if you are going for a more profesional look, and have the budget look into pandoras box media servers. They have functionality to not only edge blend multiple projectors, but also map the image onto any 3d object. you might need two of them in order to run 8 projectors but they are much easier to sync up than 8 individual pcs
