by Matthew Boylan 10 years ago
When working with 23.976p footage, I know that many capture cards will add 3:2 pulldown when laying video off to tape, but what if you don't want to go to tape What if you just want a 29.97 file, but

Re: Resolve on the new Mac Pro
by Peter Barrett 6 years ago
Yeah, still very little info out there. We have a 4,1 8-core with 3x GTX680s and a RR in a Cubix box - and I'm beginning to feel we should have bought a 2012 or 2013 12-core rather than hedge our bets
Audio stems export at lower levels

Hi all I'm attempting to export stems from FCP X and I'm getting attenuation that I can't explain, and can't seem to avoid. My steps here are: Import the 5.1 stems from the sound mix at their native l

Hi Claudibus Yes, I filed a bug report also, a week later when the bug page unhacked itself. I see no easy answer - except, cautiously, to explore bypassing FCP X altogether for outputs and using inst
Panel discussion: Who loves their DaVinci panels?

Discussion on all these fora is dominated by "Wave v Avid " "No! Buy Elements JLCooper xxxx!". But what about the real thing We had CP200B BK with Color, expensive and sweet, we've bought Euphonics, t

Thank you both, these are reassuring endorsements. I guess two is sufficient - I thought there might be more but i guess this space is occupied mostly by the searching, uncertain neophytes like myself
Proxy filenames in XDCAM Transfer
by Simon Green 10 years ago
Hi there I have recently been capturing material in XDCAM transfer with the intention of having someone else work with the proxy files for a rough cut, and then re-link at the end to the HD material.

Hi Simon, thanks Andy for the heads-up. I built Proximate a while ago to copy the proxies stored in the Library XDCAM Transfer folder and rename them in a folder named according to the XD disc - which

We've just bought an HP LTO-4 for the purpose, using Retrospect on Macs and the supplied drivers on PCs. I'm intrigued by the Quantum "MXF-aware" argument - does that mean something happens to native
Sync Issues with FCP and ProTools

Hey there everyone. I'm having a rather strange issue with Final Cut and ProTools. I'm hoping someone has come across this problem before and might have a solution. We recently posted a feature length
Re: Sync Issues with FCP and ProTools
by Peter Barrett 12 years ago
Interesting that it's a drop frame issue - I always assumed it was a 24 v 23.976 thing but this makes sense. I've often noticed drift on PAL projects that adds up to about 4 secs every 45 mins, which
Highlight banding issue with HDV

Urgent!! Adding pulldown on output

Re: Urgent!! Adding pulldown on output
by Peter Barrett 13 years ago
Thanks, tried that but the output was significantly jerkier, with what looked like the odd dropped or doubled frame - yet normal 1080i50 and 59.94 play out perfectly, as does Graeme Nattress's plugin
