Can this workflow be improved? (iMovie iPad)
I make videos for my judo club. Maximum quality is not my major concern - decent quality and using very little of my time is my concern.
Record video on flip mino hd or iPhone 4
Camera connection kit to ipad
Import iMovie. Add preroll and post roll pre made clips from final cut
Add clip specific titles
Start rendering and drive home
Arrive home, hit upload to YouTube, go to bed
Benefit over current process with hv40 and final cut - no fussing with tapes. No editing or importing at home. No time wasted waiting for compressor to encode (taking 40ish minutes currently). - really I can have these videos published, on YouTube and linked to our dojo site using ZERO additional time over just going to the dojo which I would do anyway. It's like free value added time.
Downsides: significantly lower video quality (and impotently audio) quality over hv40.
Are there any other cameras that will support this workflow? Can you improve it? Cheap ways to increase the audio quality on the hv40, ip4 OR the flip hd mino?
Appreciate your time. Here is a sample video of what I'm doing. (edit : nevermind can't post links yet as a new, new member. I'll edit it in later once I have more posts.)
I'll be doing about 4-5 of these a week so low impact workflow is primary. All volunteer obviously not a paid gig . Im a rank amateur.
