No issues using OD, in fact, this is very common in collaborative pro apps environments. The primary thing to pay attention to is the type of OD accounts you use. There are a few options, but for user

There are ways to get three monitors to work simultaneously, but you can't use the standard mini-display port to DVI adaptor - you'll need the mini-display port to dual link dvi adaptor. Here's the li

Shotput Pro will do any digital media card, since it's just pulling everything off in an unaltered state. It lets you choose between a file size comparison, which is fast, or a byte for byte compariso

Take a look at SynthEyes. This can be used in After Effects, and I know of many people using this successfully. Much cheaper than its competing products. http: www.ssontech.com

Re: Export for DVD studio Pro

Just remember that if you set the data rate too high in compressor, it won't play in many players. Think about it this way - a compression algorithm, even a variable one, can only be tweaked so much;

Your XML is fine. Just change the 'Open with...' in the get info window for your XML, and hit 'Change all'. You'd want to open it with FCP on your machine, but you can also open xmls in text edit. The

It depends on the material you want to edit. Since you only want 1TB my guess is you're editing very low-bandwidth media. Look @ Gtech for a really solid redudant raid1 FW eSata array. Some people use

What camera are you using If by 24p you mean 23.976, then yes. If you mean 24.000, then you need to either shoot in 23.98 (if you can) or conform later once you ingest your material. Going to Pro Res

Re: MacBook Pro stuttering on viewing in FCP
by Craig Thomas Quinlan 9 years ago
Couple of things. You need to convert 5d material before you edit, plain and simple. 5D h.264 is problematic for FCP as well as the frame rate (30, not 29.97, etc.). There are many ways to do this...
