Chance: I think 4:1 is reasonable. But I'm a lazy editor. I've been trying to keep my ratios to 4 or 5 to 1 for years now, just because I hate going through all that footage.
Drew: What are you transferring to? DV or HD or what?Chance: I'm thinking about going straight to hard disk, DVCPro HD, 1080p, 24fps. Assuming that will work okay (I need to do a test with the lab at some point). If I can't make HD work, I'll go with good ol' DigiBeta.
