DV widescreen footage - aspect ratio
by Julian Roberts 7 years ago
I'm using a DeckLink Studio card with Premiere Pro CS6 and the latest BMD drivers. The footage I'm editing is PAL widescreen DV, but my monitor (a Dell 2408 in 1:1 mode connected via HDMI) plays it ba
Re: DV widescreen footage - aspect ratio

Yup - all the sequence settings are correct for a DV 16:9 project. Playback in PPr is 16:9 - but just not in my client monitor. Either PPr isn't sending the anamorphic flag or the monitor isn't interp

by Julian Roberts 8 years ago
I have several hours of old analogue Hi-8 4:3 footage to capture and cut. Having tested a few minutes - brought in via a Canopus DV converter, the image looks so tiny in the middle of my 1920x1200 cli
Audio clipping

Having loaded on the new 9.2 beta drivers I'm now getting massive clipping on all my audio with MC6. I've turned all my audio channels (in the Decklink settings) down to the minimum, but it's still re

Hi Kristian Thanks for the link to the old drivers. Should I be connecting to both the Channel 1 & 2 analogue outputs to monitor my audio I find that if I only connect Channel 1 I can reduce the clipp

There were are copies on eBay for over 50, which seemed excessive. In the end I googled the book title and bought it from Amazon.com, total about 25 including shipping from the US. If you do this be c
MC6 - 1080i footage in a SD timeline
by Benny Christensen 8 years ago
First of all, as one of the Avid exodus considering coming back into the fold, I am amazed at how much I have forgotten and how foreign it feels to edit in MC compared to FCP. So I downloaded the MC 6

Until this gets fixed, I make sure I keep Premiere Pro in my toolset - particularly for shorter form and effects heave projects. Julian

Graphics card
by Julian Roberts 8 years ago
I currently have a MacPro with an ATI 5770 graphics card. This allows me to run a dual monitor set-up with PPro, but has now Cuda acceleration. I was thinking about swapping this for an Nvidia Quadro
Re: Graphics card
by Tim Kolb 8 years ago
I wouldn't mix them myself...I'd put the bigger Quadro, and add a smaller, less expensive one...then run them under one driver installation. That's my Windows approach anyway...I run 4 displays. TimK,
Moving around the project window using the keyboard
by Julian Roberts 8 years ago
I've recently come across from Final Cut and have been trying to get to grips with as many keyboard shortcuts as possible. In the project panel list view I can move up and down a level (in the bin str

Thanks. Can't even see the shortcuts for the list view, which I know work. There must be a way of navigating in icon view with the keyboard... J

As I'm experiencing playback problems with the Matrox Mini, I'm investigating whether I can get better leverage from the Mercury playback engine by buying a compatible graphics card for my MacPro. I r
Re: Compatible graphics card

Thanks Jeff. Live used to simpler when I had the RT.X2 running on the PC... Looks like I'm a bit compromised on the Mac with PPro.

Although if you select 'storage' as opposed to 'AVI' all the Matrox codecas (and others) are accessible... If I select Quicktime, I can encode to anything, including the Avid codecs I have on my syste
