I have an on going problem that I must address. After grading my footage in resolve transcoding the master file in AME and burning a blu ray, I am seeing a tremendous gamma, contrast and sharpness boo
Re: Grade Inconsistency
by ninetto makavejev 6 years ago
OK, AME... Nevertheless, Gustavo's query is spot-on. You are transcoding FROM what TO what with "AME" It really sounds like you have got your scaling or Color-Models wrong: then, of course, there is t
Resolve and DNxHD data levels
by kristaps kazaks 6 years ago
Hey guys, I was experimenting with how Resolve 9 deals with ProRes and DNxHD encoded footage in terms of data levels and found that strange things are happening. When I import a ProRes HQ footage (gen

Oh I would so much like to get to the bottom of this. I have been struggling with this DNxHD shift for weeks and have not found a definite answer. I have tried many combinations of export-import with

It will just create a new trimmed project, and you can choose options handles on how the manager trims and deals with offline material: usually you should "remove unused media" in the original project
Pr & ProRes transcoding. pros and cons?
by Al Bergstein 7 years ago
So I left FCP about a year or so ago. Have enjoyed using Pr with no transcoding. I am working on a rather large project with both Canon mxf files and Canon 5D mov files. My project size is over 30MBs

You didn't really describe what "problems" you are running into, but recently on a long P2 (mxf) project that began acting strange, esp. on exports, the best fountain-of-youth cure I discovered was cl

Hi. It was this guy: http: forums.creativecow.net thread 124 883576#883629 but he had an BM Intensity Pro, not Decklink. I am in the middle of a project and haven't the chance time to fiddle with driv
HERE we go again: 25p vs 50i Headaches with Decklink HD Extreme + CS6

Hello. Well this one might seem familiar to some, I have posted in the past about the problem of getting 25p or 25PsF material to work with Prem.Pro and Decklink HD Extreme card. The system is a brand

Wierd thing though, or proof how evil lazy manufacturers are regarding hardware support: using the very same "old" Decklink HD Extreme, RESOLVE has no problem displaying 25p! It just works. So it real

Thanks much for the heads-up on this. Have you seen this on other mts files or only from GH2 material Stange that it took so long for anybody to notice this, I had other oddities with GH1 100mbps-mts

Hmmm, there are several solutions, some people apply a LUT or use TRACK instead of CLIP correction. The dumb and lazy amongst us sends the finished outputed file thru another application in FCP or AE

UPDATE: Data Levels vs. "Automatic"

An update after some tests: well, I am still not quite sure how Premiere handles 709 color space, but the only way I could get a 100% identical DNxHD round-trip was: 1. export from Premiere as 709 DNx

Sorry to say my optimism with the "easy" fix in the previous post has not panned out. Today I had to re-boot 4 times before the BM-drivers "kicked in". This is not good. When I have more time I will o
I have to say CS6 is very sluggish with Mac Decklink.
by Peter Corbett 7 years ago
I'm noticing that scrubbing on Blackmagic timelines is VERY sluggish, sometimes completely jamming. Response seems worse than 5.5. I don't have benchmarks to show, but anecdotally it just feels worse.

Blackmagic has a "drive-speed" app that tells you what your drive-speed and bandwidth can handle. Are you talking SD or HD, that makes a huge difference... but in the end this is a system problem not
Does AME interpet AE interlaced composition correctly?

Thanks for the response, Dave. It appears that CS4 was intepreting the file incorrectly. In any case, over at a workstation with CS5 the file shows up as what one would expect, 1.09 720x576. Strange t

How to copy and paste text attribute?

Re: SD-DV to BetaSP, workflow /DecklinkSP ?

Thanks for the info and motivation! I suppose the workflow is a bit backwards, but since the DV edit is done already, it is OK to just drop the finished edited DV sequence into a new ProRes sequence,
