Graphics quality
by Ron Dylewski 8 years ago
This has bothered me for a long time, so I thought I'd ask the experts here. Why are the graphics I create in the Title Tool of less quality than something I do in AE and then import I did a test and
Re: Graphics quality
by Annaël Beauchemin 8 years ago
It's been a while since it's like this. In SD, it didn't quite make a difference, but in HD it's quite obvious. I always do my titles in AE now, except when it's for a quick and dirty project.
709 scale RGB for web
by stig olsen 8 years ago
Hi, Maybe a bit out of topic, but I guess this affect us all in some way. I mainly keep the material 709 all the way through Avid, compositing software and grading before delivery for both TV and web.
Re: 709 scale RGB for web
by Annaël Beauchemin 8 years ago
Btw, be careful with squeeze with versions before 8 when exporting H.264. The Mainconcept encoder takes 709 levels, not RGB. If you give it RGB, your .mp4 will look too contrasty (because levels are e
How to send MC Seq clips to After FX??

I have been trying, without success, to send clips from a Composer seq to After FX. Even when I try to send a single clip via Quicktime Refrence, when I import that into AFX, I get an error message ab

To export an Quicktime AMA sequence (such as Canon DSLR clips), you can export an AAF without creating Quicktime Reference files. To do this, you must enable "AAF Edit Protocol" and Export Method shou

Thank you in advance for your help on this! I am a (well-) seasoned actor who wants to take over the editing of my demo reel. I also direct a bunch and am learning AVID (have 5.5)I realize a lot of th
Re: Actors Demo Reel - MPEGstreamclip/avid settings
by Annaël Beauchemin 8 years ago
I would add that using Avid DV50 is easier than the other Avid codecs since it is a 720x480 codec, just like MPEG2-DVD. Others Avid SD codecs are 720x486, which can mess up the fields when converted,

My bad... didn't know Premiere was that cheap! Still, that's only 200$ difference. But I digress, don't want to be called an Avid fanboy...

Avid Auto Save - during and after Render, can I turn off?

Hi All, Whilst I admit autosave is a good invention, I seem to have too much of a good thing and my Avid MC 5 is constantly interrupting me or itself to save. It saves at the start of a render and the

by Annaël Beauchemin 9 years ago
If you configure your keyboard with a render keystroke (I use the tilde key beside the 1 key), it won't autosave at the end of the render. That makes no sense but that's the way it is. Two notes on th

The post suggest rendering to the uncompressed NONE codec and essentially disabling AE's color management. But this creates HUGE files that I need to render again when I use them in my FCP timeline. W

PCI cards are not supported by either Quartz Extreme and Final Cut. It is explicitely written in the System Requirements. All G5 came with AGP videocard that supported QE. Maybe the previous owner rem
