What actually happens to the video waveform
Figure 34-11 Slew-rate waveforms.
Figure 34-12 shows the effect of an overshoot in the transitions around the edges. There is
a risk of this happening when the film is processed through a telecine unit that is incor-
The effect is obvious if a small part of the picture is reproduced as a waveform. This
is illustrated in Figure 34-13.
Just enough sharpening should be applied to restore the clean edges.
Don't turn on any automatic sharpening filters, as this increases edge detail but also intro-
duces more noise artifacts, which are harder to compress effectively. If you are going to do
this at all, then it needs to be done manually and with care.
