Shooting stop motion

13 November 2015 - 05:38 PM

Working on a short personal project, this will be my first real attempt at stop motion. Anyone have much experience with this? I'm thinking I'll shoot it with a nice mirrorless camera, but cranking out a bunch of 24 megapixel raw files seems like major overkill. Is there a best practice here?

Thunderbolt to Firewire Adapter - Will it support deck control?

10 December 2014 - 01:42 PM

I have a collection of DV tapes I want to capture, and I have an old DV camcorder for playback, but I don't have a firewire port on my MBP. I was wondering, will the adapter work just like hooking up a stright firewire connection, i.e. will I be able to control playback & capture through Premiere? Anyone have experience with this?


This is the adapter:



(As a second question, does anyone have a recommendation for some sort of external capture box with RCA or S-Video inputs that will connect via USB3 or Thunderbolt? I also have some old VHS and VHS-C tapes I want to capture).
