comment Unable to render file larger than 4 Gigs in Sony Vegas 10
If you are exporting to an external harddrive that's formatted as FAT32 you are unable to have files larger than 4GB. That's the only thing that comes to mind for me.

comment How do I write up a shot list?
Although I don't think linking to a product is a good way to answer this question, I can verify that it's actually a really good app. I've seen a couple of 1st AD's use it to much success. Good work on that one, Zach.

comment Timing of script pages
I've never used Final Draft so I can't compare them. If it formats your script correctly and you know how to use it then that's fine - stick with it.

comment What sequence presets I must use with a GoPro and Adobe Premiere Pro CS 5.5?
Yeah, I noticed it was CS4. Was hoping it'd be the same. Give AVCHD a go and see if it works.

comment Managing big Canon 7D files in Premiere CS5.5 with an average computer
Yes, if you compressed it to a lower quality, the end result would be of lower quality than the raw footage. There may be a way to export using the original files but I've never had to do it. This kind of editing is called offline/online editing - you could try googling it.

comment Is 18 mm enough for video?
I suggested the 12-24mm, however the 11-16mm is another viable option. I was tossing up between the two but finally decided to go with the 12-24mm because for the 1mm you are gaining on one end you are losing 8mm on the other – and 24mm can be used nicely for portraits. I can't say whether or not you NEED a wider lens, but they are definitely a great investment, especially if you are into landscape photography.

For landscapes you'd want a wide lens. I used to shoot landscapes with 18mm but usually wanted to go wider (which is why I bought the Tokina 12-24). A wide lens for animals is also useful if they move around a lot. Portraits, 50mm and 85mm are popular but it really depends on the individual. For filmmaking the principles are the same; however wider lenses are better for hand-held shots as camera shake is greatly accentuated by the long focal length of a lens.

comment Is 18 mm enough for video?
True. It's not a 'kit lens'; looks like a well built mid-range lens. Should perform nicely. I can't really recommend any lenses to you because I don't know what you need from them.

It's too hard to say without seeing the size of the room. 18mm is pretty wide and should be ok, but it really depends on what you want. If you end up needing a wider lens I can highly recommend the Tokina 12-24. I use it often with my 7D and it performs very well. ebay.com.au/itm/…

comment Workflow for making interesting videos
I attempted to answer this and then got stuck. What kind of travel video are you trying to make? Will you be talking to the camera or will you simply just be shooting the things you see? Also, do you want to make a single video or a series?

Depends on your equipment. Please update your question with the equipment you have available.

comment Is it possible to make changes over several clips at the same time when color correcting?
No, but you could use the same method to create two sequences.

comment Why does media show up in Final Cut but errors when rendering in Compressor?
Do you go File > Send to > Compressor? Also, have you rendered all media in FCP before opening Compressor?

comment What is the difference between an amateur and a professional camcorder?
Indeed, manual controls are the main difference. But obviously the more money you spend the better hardware you're going to get.

comment Is it possible to make changes over several clips at the same time when color correcting?
Yeah, I guess if you don't have a deadline that could be the case. The only thing I could suggest is exporting a lossless video of all the shots that you want to have the exact same grade, grading that the way you want it and then re-cutting it. Possibly more effort than it's worth as copying and pasting a grade is very simple and can be done quickly with keyboard shortcuts.

What program do you use to color correct?

comment Is there any format for videos like RAW format for photos?
True. And there's really no point unless you're going to print to 35mm for a cinema release.

I would say this was definitely made in Windows Movie Maker.

comment How do I write up a shot list?
I just have the free version and that comes with some basic graphics. I always draw up storyboards by hand - only used celtx this time because it was easier than scanning an image. So I couldn't really say whether or not it's worth it. Sorry mate
