I am beginner on taking video / film making / videography (i dont know if these terms can be use interchangeably).
After recording a video using my 6D. The SD card shows .mov file.
1. What is usually the next step? should I convert it to other format prior to video editing?
2. What are the usual video editing that needs to be done? cutting/rejecting portions of the video?
3. What is the usual final format (for still, its jpeg).
Currently, I bring all my video onto my working and backup hard drive with Lightroom, I just do all my media through LR.
I then, open up Davinci Resolve and bring all the footage in there, I've been using the version 11 interaction with the Xrite passport color utility...and in Resolve, I use this to set and correct all my basic WB.
I shoot with the Marvels Cinestyle 'flat' profile, and this one step on each clip makes them start to really pop and look good for rest of workflow.
I set the WB as mentioned above...I then render out what is basically a 'proxy' file in prores and XML which I bring into FCPX. I do my edits...when pretty much locked, I often send back the XML to Resolve, but UNCHECK the import files part, so that Resolve will use the edited information, but work with the original files.
I"ll do my color correction, grading, noise reduction (Neat plugin)...and render this out..and do XML too.
I"ll bring this back into FCPX, finish up sound..and if I have certain clips I want to do motion graphics on, I'll pull that clip into After Effects, do my magic there and render out, and add into the Library/Project in FCPX...I finalize things and render out my movie
Of course there are variations depending on the shoot or what needs I have for a project, but most are my own things....so, that is the general workflow I follow.
I am trying to work Pluraleyes in there too...to help sync when using external audio....in addition to the Rode video mic I have mounted on camera.
I'm shooting with a Canon 5D3.....editing on a mac.
Soon, I hope to start teaching myself Premier and see how I'd fit that into the workflow.
But I start off bringing things into Davinci Resolve (Lite..the free version).
