by Eric Scheur 5 years ago
Hi y'all, I have run into an issue that is confounding me. I hope someone here can offer some advice. I have some AVCHD footage I need to import into FCP7. I copied it over from the memory card onto a

Hi Eric, I think the change came in with mountain lion, 10.8. My systems on 10.7 all work fine. The way round it is to transcode from the camera card. If you need to restranscode at a later date, for

Hi, I use QT change constantly, especially with GoPro style footage. I have never had a problem, and often change the reel names while FCP is open, and FCP updates it once QT change is done. I dont ch
Is this a good idea: making low rez versions of photos in the timeline while editing and reconnecting to larger ones when exporting?
by Noam Osband 5 years ago
I'm making a film with a lot of photos. I scanned the photos at really high resolutions, as PNG's and TIFF's, because I dont know when I'll want a close up. That said, I'm not sure which photos I'll u

Also, if you choose to do low res for the rough cut, the problem you will come up with if you've done any moves or resizing, is you will have to do each one again, manually. Fallen into that trap befo
convert 1080/25p to 1080/50i?
by Ming Daines 5 years ago
Hi everyone, I hope I can get some advice. I've shot my footage with Panasonic AG102 as 1080 25p. To work in FCP, the footage was converted to Prores 1080 25. However my delivery to the broadcaster sh
Re: convert 1080/25p to 1080/50i?
by Nick Price 5 years ago
50i doesn't mean the frame rate is 50 frames a sec. It is still 25 frames a sec, its just that each frame has 2 fields, hence the feeling of a slightly smooth 'soap opera' style feeling to the movemen

Hi Chuck, i am using OS 10.8.4 (mountain lion) on a Mac Pro, and FCP7 works fine. It will depend on your machine though. Obviously do a backup and clean install. There will come a point where the app

Why can't I capture the whole tape instead of clips
by Danny Dodge 12 years ago
I'm capturing HDV 720p footage from a JVC H110 camera. I've un-checked the "make new clip on start and stop" in the log and capture menu. And I've chosen "On timecode break warn after capture" in the
Re: Why can't I capture the whole tape instead of clips
by Nick Price 12 years ago
also if the timecode is continous on the tape, you can add it after in the modify menu timecode. Pick a cut on the tape so you know the exact timecode at that point and type it in, viola, one long cli
need a recommendation for a monitor for color correction

So I'm uprezing some stuff for a tiny production company and they have no monitor suitable for color correcting their HDV footage. Can someone recommend something for me looking for flat panel 24" or

it depends on their delivery too. If its just SD digibeta then a $1000 JVC Sony broadcast monitor will do fine with your kona card. Obviously HD will make things more expensive, but only if you need i

by Nick Price 12 years ago
Anders, the compressor problem with AIFFs has been mentioned before in posts, i believe its an update thing. It used to work fine for me, the batch window never bothered me and you can close it anyway
