Dear Jitter people,
I'm needing to buy an HDV camcorder which I would like, amongst other things, to work well with Jitter in real-time. I'm considering the Sony FX7 (for it's ease of use) but also the Canon XH-A1 (for it's progressive scan/frame mode). Both have SD 480 out but the Sony is i(which I'd prefer) I will have to de-interlace the image by either running it through some Jitter objects to "throw out every other frame and up-sample" or run the camera's analog out through some kind of hardware like the DFG-1394A.
My question is, which method would have the least latency and roughly how much latency would that be over using the Canon's frame mode?
Thanks in advance for any light shed on this subject,
