Considerations and Guidelines for Digital Video Capture

Preparing to shoot the video

If you are in the position of being involved before the material is actually filmed there are a few points worth considering:

Tip: Imagine the situation from the point of view of the codec. Little or no change in a scene means less interframe information and lower data rates (or higher quality for the same data rate). Anything which causes a change over a large area of the image will need to be stored in the final video file.

Video Capture and Editing

Authoring and Playback

Tip: Do you need motion video?. Would the material be better served by other techniques e.g. still image sequences? Leave the video to do what it is good at. That is showing motion.
