  • Re: Sample Buffer error - urgent

    I assume that when your HD got full, you moved/copied media to a different drive. I am guessing something got corrupted during the process. To figure out if that is the case and if so, what the corrupt media is, you need to do the "divide and conquer" dance. Duplicate the sequence, delete half the sequence. Play that remaing half. Is it ok

    [quote user="Kestiu"] The exports will be watched on various monitors, projectors and TV screens (not online). [/quote] You should not Scale from Legal to Full Range for the devices noted. Legal is Avid's label for broadcast type devices. Full range is for use on computer based monitors / viewing, not what you described. Jef

  • Re: Editing and export NTSC 4:3 QuickTime ProRes 422 (HQ)

    All possible. My gripe is that Avid does not seem to want to address any of this. SD is .9. End of story. As a result, image quality is degraded unless you jump through hopes. Jef

    My biggest issue with editing SD in Avid these days is with how it handles the pixel aspect ratio of SD files made by Adobe. And possibly other tools. You write you are AMA linking some files. They had to come from somewhere. Avid believes the PAR of SD should be .90 Adobe believes it should be .9091. When Avid see this difference, it "fixes"

  • Re: Feature request: Export QT with Metadata

    [quote user="AlexF"] In my world it is completely upside down. Quicktime ProRes is the gold standard. Independent from what is inside MC. MXF + others are deal-breakers. By the way: removing old APIs and dependencies from MC is not the same as removing the ability to work with it (import/link/export/...). In fact it does mean that Avid is

  • Re: MC 8.9.1 XAVC-S support. Good, but lacking common metadata.

    Steve - Sticking my nose in here, but I see one big issue in your screen grabs with the transcoded file - pixel aspect ratio! It should match the source and does not. That could cause real heartache. Jef

    The new Delta keyer in Fusion is really good. It is not directly in Avid as the OP wished. But it is part of the free Fusion version. Fusion has a very steep learning curve if you are not used to a node based comp tool. Plus you have to work out a round trip method based on your own situation. Just a thought. Jef

    [quote user="chapmattman"] And that said as well, I have an external client monitor... how do I get the image on it? It normally plays the timeline on both INSIDE composer and on the monitor. However its black at the moment. [/quote] Look for the gear shaped icon right above the sequence. Make sure it is not marked out. It is a toggle. Jef

  • Re: best preview

    First advantage is color accuracy. Using computer graphics card to feed a monitor puts the OS in the way. It may influence color. Second. Are you working with interlace material for broadcast delivery? If so, AJA or BM correctly handle that. You will also need a monitor that can display interlace. I do not believe that feeding a typical computer display
