    ? about Discontinuous TC base tolerance = 6

    I thought I saw a post about changing this setting in the console. I am trying to capture an entire tape, but the tape stops on every break. They are not TC breaks. I could not find the post that discussed changing the base tolerance to a lower amount to reduce the amount of stoppages.

    It's 45 minute tape that I do not want to have to keep restarting every 45 seconds.

     

    All help is greatly appreciated.

    From MichaelP

    Users can now enter a command into the console: TCBreakTolerance

    The console is opened via the Tools menu or by doing a CMD-6 on Mac or CTRL-6 on a PC. Once the console is open:

    • type: TCBreakTolerance 3

      • Where 3 is the value of the frame detection (2-12)

    • Then the user hits:  ENTER


    This should be entered each time the application is started up as it does not stick. The supported values are 2-12. Users who have tested this feature have found that “3” provided excellent results.

    1” is not allowed as it will return timecode breaks where there are none as it is too sensitive a setting. Users may find that “2” or “4” will work better for their tapes,


    I believe you need to set it when you are in capture mode

    Thanks AA,

    I thought it was 3 but was not sure of the exact lettering.

     

    Thanks again

    " Where's that Avid wikipedia?" Avid Knowledge base? A word document on Andrews desktop?

    Re: ? about Discontinuous TC base tolerance = 6

    In another thread on one of the forums here someone was proposing a wikipedia for Avid.  That's what I was referring to.

    Their concerns were in relation to terminology differences between Avid and other NLEs, but I think console commands would have to be in there too.

    "In another thread on one of the forums here someone was proposing a wikipedia for Avid" Yes I followed it. In this case I was being facetious.
