Sample text

Use Soft Lights There are two types of light sources, hard and soft lights. Hard lights are generated by relatively small sources of lights that transmit directly to the subject, and include incandescent and halogen bulbs, and the sun (I know it’s pretty big, but it is really far away). Hard lights create a very distinct, well-defined shadow, like that on the left in Figure 4-3. Figure 4-3 Hard lights on the left, soft lights on the right. The problem with hard lights in the streaming scenario is that they create significant contrast between the lighter and darker regions in the image (like the right and left side of my face) and lots of lines and other detail, which combine to make it tougher for the codec to do its job.

Interframe Compression and Video Quality At a high level, there are two types of compression, intraframe and interframe. Intraframe compression occurs totally within a single frame, with no reference to other frames in the video. The most familiar example of an intraframe compression technology is JPEG, the most pervasive technology used in digital cameras and real-world pictures on the web. In contrast, interframe compression works between frames, using a system of key and delta frames to eliminate redundancy between frames.

They can also reflect light back to the camera, complicating exposure. • Beware those wearing glasses. When your subject wears glasses, remember to observe whether lights are reflecting in the lenses. If so, often you can avoid or minimize this by lighting the subject from the side. Theory Is Great, but Test Anyway If you follow these recommendations to the letter, chances are you’ll produce great results. Some problems, however, only become obvious when you compress your video to your target output parameters.
