Walter Soyka "I agree, especially with digital formats like DV and HDV, which record a data stream to tape. They don't have "proper" separate timecode tracks." True, but they do have seperate sectors

Have you considered just doing it in DVDstudio pro I'm assuming that's what you're using, since you mentioned final cut. "Authoring" a dvd with no menu, that will just start playing your video when pl

IMX format, please help!
by Paul Dombrovskis 10 years ago
Hi guys, am new to IMX format and to your site aswell. I will have to work with IMX and i need to know how big would be a 10 second file recorded in IMX30+ 8 audio. thnaks in advance cheers Paul
Re: IMX format, please help!
by Asmund Voll Tesdal 10 years ago
Well, IMX30 has a bitrate of 30 mb s (megabits), so a 10 sec clip should be 37.5 mB (megabytes) of video. Don't remember the audio format for IMX, but I'll guess 16 bit 48k, which in 8 channels for 10

A simple setup would be to just get a video splitter (aka video distibution amplifier or vda) and two dvd recorders, and feed them with video from your cam, going trough the splitter.
Program, Preview, and 8 inputs on one LCD?
by Mike Broich 10 years ago
While browsing Ebay, I ran across this production trailer: http: cgi.ebay.com ws eBayISAPI.dll ViewItem&item=160335003089 If you look at the second picture, it shows a Grass Valley switcher and an LCD

by Asmund Voll Tesdal 10 years ago
Looks like he's just using quad splits. To get the setup in the picture on ebay, you'll need three quads, just run the output from two quads into two of the inputs on the third quad.
625/50 do they mean PAL?
by mark rivers 10 years ago
Hi, I need to deliver an Standard Definition 16:9 digibeta tape to a company in France. They sent me a Tech Spec Packet which states: "Video signals shall be produced in 4.2.2 format, 10 bits 625 50"
Re: 625/50 do they mean PAL?
by Asmund Voll Tesdal 10 years ago
In this context I believe they are referring to PAL as in composite. You're correct in that 625 50 is "PAL" frame size rate.
Converting NTSC to PAL 16:9 Anamorphic

OK, this seems like a very basic question, but I searched for it and have had no luck so far. Here we go: I am submitting a NTSC full-frame (4:3) spot to an awards show in France, and they are requiri
Re: Converting NTSC to PAL 16:9 Anamorphic
by Asmund Voll Tesdal 10 years ago
If I remember correctly, the aspect ratios of NTSC and PAL are not the same. I'm guessing they're pretty close (and yes, PAL is also non-square), so I don't know if you'll actually be able to see the

Just one thought; how does the cost of extra time spent grading less-than-ideal footage compare to the savings of renting cheaper cams Just wondered, because I heard some talk about when people starte

Broadcast HD 720 vs 1080?
by Lars Larson 11 years ago
First of all, thank you or your time. I am in advertising, and when it comes to production I'm wondering if working in 1080 or 720 is better. By the way I'm working with the HPX500 and Final Cut Studi

CH1&2 Stereo Mix / FCP question

Here is a question I've been debating at work in the last week with my fellow coworkers. First of all, we are printing to DigiBeta from FCP. Specs say that we need Ch1&2 to be a stereo mix. Coworkers
Re: CH1&2 Stereo Mix / FCP question
by Asmund Voll Tesdal 11 years ago
Actually, you and your coworkers may both be right, since FCP's behavior on this is controlled by its sequence settings. However, the default settings should be that FCP does a stereo downmix of all t

Difference between Video Lenses and SLR Lenses?

Re: Difference between Video Lenses and SLR Lenses?
by Asmund Voll Tesdal 11 years ago
Interesting ponder. I don't really have much clue when it comes to SLR lenses, but if I were to take a wild guess, I'd agree that servos and more lens elements is a big part of the equation. For one,

- With the advent of NLE editing, most tracks are batched in and so the editor has all the tracks available for preview. Having mic information is ancillary since the best track should be decided upon
