  • Avid supported imac config

    Hello, There is maybe already an answer to this somewhere but I haven't found it and would really appreciate some feedback. I need to get a new imac (not the expensive pro model, but a modest little imac). This one is on sale, but is not listed as an Avid supported model. Could anybody tell me if there's a chance it could be approved for Avid

  • Re: Mixed Frame Rate Workflow

    This whole thread is most interesting, I'm keeping a copy for reference. I work with loads of archival footage in a 25 fps interlaced HD project. We wget footage from all over the world with timecode burned in, then conform after offline editing is completed. My biggest issue is with traveling or panoramic shots (converting 30fps to 25 fps) , when

  • Re: shooting progressive for interlaced TV

    Belated thank you, Tomas! This opens my eyes to 50p footage. Our shoot is 25p. I'm reassured that Avid will treat footage right when linked in a 50i project.

  • shooting progressive for interlaced TV

    Hi, I will soon begin editing a project shot with Canon 5D mark iii, for TV which requires interlaced master. What is best, link and transcode media in an Avid interlaced project? Will the material become truly interlaced ? Will panoramic shots look jerky? Or is it better to work in an Avid progressive project, export, then interlace with an encoder

  • Re: Invalid File Name error upon startup

    This thread is 3 years old but still relevant. I've just spent an hour trying to understand why I got a "Invalid File Name" error message upon start up. It had never happened before! I copied all my Project folders onto another drive, deleted them from my main drive, searched for misplaced slashes or colons or whatever, then decided to

  • Re: Time warp help AVID MC 8.3

    Thanks, didn't think of that. Duh. Just used to old habits. You know what, after awhile I finally found the "motion effect" icon over with the so-called smart tools. I guess that makes more sense for newer users.

  • Time warp help AVID MC 8.3

    Hi, Could someone help me with timewarp? Usually I paste a Timwarp icon on the timeline, click Effect Editor, and the graph appears. But now, when I click Effect Editor I get just the usual Effect Editor window, with nothing in it except "Color Adapter"; Is this a novelty of MC 8.3? How can I access the Timewarp Graph? I'm working with

  • Re: Media Composer and "Yosemite"

    Hullo there, I'm working with MC 8.3 and Yosemite, and a 8 core Mac Pro tower, and have had a number of issues transcoding, particularly when transcoding AMA. The system often crashes or freezes. Media are on external drive: G-Tech G-speed Studio R. I'm working with QuickTime Apple pro Res HQ 422 (I think 10 bits). I would welcome any information

  • AVCHD and Dolby AC-3

    Hi, I'm currently helping a student with an important project. My Avid MC 7.0.3 handles his AVCHD footage just fine, from AMA linking to sound and video editing to export. Up until today. Using AMA link we cut the sound bites, but were unable to visualize sound on the timeline. Further investigation revealed that audio format is Dolby AC-3 256 kbs
