DCP issues for a newbie by Adriano Castaldini 2 weeks ago Hi everyone, I'm in a big trouble: I've made a video with Davinci in Prores4444 1920*1080 @25fps (pal) using Rec.709 as color space. It was clearly video oriented. Now, the video has been selected for
Re: DCP issues for a newbie by Michael Gissing 2 weeks ago DCP can handle many frame rates including 25 but in my experience a lot of cinemas are a decade behind and many only safely handle 24fps. You might need to ask a lot of questions to determine if 25 is
Recommended video card for me? by Kaitlyn McLachlan 3 weeks ago I'm looking to upgrade my video card so I can functionally do some video editing. Have a bunch of 4k clips, although I can use the "optimized media" in davinci resolve. Right now I only have a GT 620
Re: Recommended video card for me? by Michael Gissing 3 weeks ago If 4k matters, the extra GPU memory makes a big difference to real time performance. The other ting to consider is Resolve 14 has a new playback engine which gives much better performance so maybe you

Markers or Metadata - The Debate! by David Lawrence 4 weeks ago One of FCPX's great strengths is its metadata-driven organizing tools. They're so good I've built logging workflows around them, even though I like cutting in Premiere Pro. But depending on your work

Re: Logo Animation Looks Soft on Export by Michael Gissing 2 months ago I'll bet your sequence settings have defaulted to DV codec. If so then change the sequence codec settings to ProRes 422 and it will render better. DV is a horrible old legacy codec that turns graphics

Frame Rate When Ripping DVDs? by Bobby Hall 3 months ago I'm editing a reel consisting of movie scenes from DVDs and I have some questions about frame rates. As I understand it, when a 24 fps film is put on DVD, it's first slowed down to 23.976 fps and then

Roles: got 'em to work. by Mark Morache 6 years ago Alright, I think I get it. Select clips -- assign role. I can use the minimize button to shrink the tracks that I've already assigned, and then assign (or re-assign) the remaining tracks. Makes sense.

Re: 5d prores transcode glitch by Michael Gissing 7 years ago Not much point in using HQ. Normal ProRes422 is fine for footage coming from a DSLR. Have a search on the Final Cut Pro forum for advice from Gary Adcock about avoiding HQ except for 2k up frame sizes

Re: Canon 5D Mark II Audio Question by Michael Gissing 7 years ago The 5dmk2 firmware upgrade a few months ago got rid of AGC. So using a device that puts noise on track two is no longer necessary. If you need mic powering, then best advice is a small sound devices f
