AbelCine’s Andy Shipsides provides a step-by-step workflow for the Panasonic VariCam 35 and VariCam LT.
He writes, “The Panasonic VariCam 35 has been called the ‘workflow camera,’ as it offers multiple internal recording formats that can really speed up your workflow. The camera can capture a 4K or HD V-Log master, while at the same time recording both HD and proxy for instant dailies. The VariCam LT has the same function, but with just a 4K or HD master and a proxy recording. In the latest firmware updates for both of these cameras, Panasonic has greatly improved the file naming conventions, allowing both the main (master) recording and sub (HD/Proxy) recording to have the same file name. This greatly simplifies the whole process and truly makes these cameras unique and powerful. Below is an outline of how to set up both cameras for action, and steps for importing footage into Avid, Final Cut Pro X, and Premiere. I’ll also outline a basic finishing workflow with DaVinci Resolve and 4K V-log content.”
