by Derek Tow 3 years ago
Hey all. Recently, FCPX has been placing weird proxy files in the main directory instead of the Final Cut Proxy Media folder. See attached. The actual proxy rendered files are in the correct folder. W

Those look like the temp files X makes during it's optimizing and proxy processing process. (say that three times fast!) They should be auto-deleting when the transcode is complete. Are you force quit
Compressor 4.1 ! Missing File
by Derek Tow 7 years ago
Hi all. I don't see a Compressor forum so here I am. I have a project finished in FCPX - I have no errors or missing file messages. When I send it to Compressor, the opening logo and ending logo show
Re: Compressor 4.1 ! Missing File

I've figured it out. When I imported, I kept the original clip on an external hard drive and had FCPX import and create a proxy but not copy the original media. When I go to export, Compressor is look
HPX-370 Manually adjusting color temperature
by Derek Tow 8 years ago
One feature I loved with my old XH-A1 was the ability to roll the color temperature in 100 degree increments from 2800 to 8000 (or thereabouts) and find a happy place visually. I have not been able to

I'll check that out - thanks. That would be a useful feature on this camera when trying to adjust color temp by eye.
Freeze Frame Hue Change on export
by Derek Tow 9 years ago
Hey... I have a clip that I have added a freeze frame to the end of and dissolved it out. Very standard fare. In the timeline, there is no issue as I scrub through the transition to freeze. But in the

Hey all, I am capturing clips from blu-ray via BlackMagic Intensity Pro and during slow camera pans during the scene, the image is choppy. Almost hanging slightly on each frame with a bad ghosting eff

Hello out there.. I am trying to get the right settings to CAPTURE NOW "live" from a Sony HDV camera (SONY Z1U) via firewire WITHOUT recording to tape. I am filming wildlife. I have tried all the sett

by Derek Tow 9 years ago
Hey Chris, I have an XH-A1 as well and am testing these settings. Yes - once the tape head disengages, it stops working. But, if you hit record on the tape, it will capture through firewire for as lon
HVX-200A > FS-100 > FCP Screw Up
by Derek Tow 11 years ago
Hey there... Need Help!! We shot on a HVX-200A at 720p30 to the Firestore FS-100 with the P2 PN setting instead of QT. Neglecting to organize reels, we copied only the folder with the mxf files in it
Re: HVX-200A > FS-100 > FCP Screw Up
by Derek Tow 11 years ago
That worked! We had to reformat the FS-100, copy the folder of mxf files into the '0' folder and run ORGANIZE P2. Hooked up the Mac, FCP - Log and Transfer - they all showed up. Thanks for the experti
DVCPRO HD 720p Export Settings for Compressor
by Derek Tow 11 years ago
Hey there... I've searched for this on the forum but didn't really find the answer - though I'm sure it's an old issue. I am working in a DVCPRO HD timeline that is 960x720. When I send it to Compress

Another option I tried was to nest the 960x720 sequence into a 1280x720 sequence in FCP before exporting. This worked but again - render time was four+ hours. It seems to me that there is an unnecessa
Imported WMV blurry
by Derek Tow 12 years ago
Hi! I have a WMV file which has a 1024x768 resolution and looks fairly decent when I open it directly with Windows Media Player. However, as soon as I import it into Premiere Pro 2.0, the video is not

by Arie Stavchansky 12 years ago
I've tried exporting back out in multiple HQ file types and it still looks bad. The video will look very different in the viewport in Premiere regardless of how you import it. However, are you export
