About 24P Digital Post Production with Final Cut Pro and the DVX100
Created by Apple Certified Pro instructor Noah Kadner, the DVD provides instruction for digital video professionals on both shooting for the edit using Panasonic’s DVX100 series of professional video cameras, and editing that content with a focus on Apple’s Final Cut Pro software.

“I’ve spent years answering questions from clients and online forum members about this camera, how to set it up properly and how to handle 24p footage in post,” says Kadner. “This DVD boils down all of that experience. Above all, we designed it to help people spend more time making their movies and less time fighting the learning curve.”

The DVD contains more than one and a half hours of original content, and is broken down into learning modules with interactive animations and real-world examples. Topics detailed in the video include advanced pulldown removal; output for 24p DVD; 24pA vs 24p Standard; output for 35mm film; anamorphic 16X9 setup; using Cinema Tools; editing system shopping lists; fixing tape dropouts; easy setups; SDI vs. FireWire capture; DV tape stock recommendations; slate operations; Rec Run vs. Free Run; output for color correction; syncing sound in post and more.

24P Digital Post Production with Final Cut Pro and the DVX100 is available on DVD and is priced at $75 (US). 24P Digital Post Production with Final Cut Pro and the DVX100 can be purchased directly from the company at:
