Greetings, I just purchased the COS-11D (Sennheiser connector) to use with my Sennheiser SK100 (Gen.3). The existing ME-2 sounds great, but when I switch to the 11D I get some sort of system or interf

It seems to be an issue with the connector on the mic. When I insert it into the transmitter most of the way, it sounds good. When I push it all he way in, I get the noise that s generated from the tr

23.976 fps has a framerate of Now, that is displayed as 24, as there are no fractional numbers in frames. So, after one second, the TC says 24, where in fact it should say 23.976. Here is the source o

by Bouke Vahl 2 years ago
23.976 is a non-drop TC format. Thus, 24 hours worth of TC is NOT 24 hours on the wall clock. I think that's what the messages are about. Bouke www.videotoolshed.com
Low-Res Playback Issue
by David C Jones 4 years ago
Hi All- At some point, during our merging clips for our doc, all clips, while playing, would look low-res, but fine when paused. Even the un-merged clips would look this way. We ended up closing PP an

Re: Merging Clips in Prelude?
by Paul Neumann 4 years ago
I would mark subclip the audio clips in Prelude as well. That makes it a lot easier to keep it all straight while merging in PPro. Plus you can use the TC info from the Video clips to mark the audio c

I doubt BMD will add TC input as a feature for the BMPC-4K. (Their new URSA cam will have a separate TC input connector.) I've seen mentioned online that you can record TC on one of the BMPC-4K's audi
