  • Show audio peaks in timeline

    The ability to show where audio peaks (ie: over zero db) are in the timeline and mark them with some kind of flag, is another feature from FCP7 that I found invaluable and saved a huge amount of time before exporting long shows. I'm not talking about showing wavforms, just where it goes "over the top" and add a marker. With Avid you have
  • Show both fields in pause on external monitor

    The ability to show both fields in pause mode should be an option on the external monitor. Avid still strips out one field when paused, causing the shot to look terrible. With graphics, and wide shots trying to see/guess detail is a nightmare when working on interlaced projects. Yes I know there's the "forward one field" button, but it's
  • Re: audio peak detection in sequence

    Yes, you can export back to FCP (as long as you know there are no overload peaks in any of the tracks). I've done that! And it takes a lot of bother - especially if your FCP and AVID are on separate boot drives. Or. worse you don't have FPC to hand at your workplace. What I'm asking for in AVID MC is a feature update that does what is already
  • Re: field order fixing

    Larry thanks for replying, but my request is not to turn it into progressive and lose the fields; it's to retain the interlacing but shift the field order. I once saw a demonstration on Avid by someone who used masks to blank out every upper field and then every lower field and then edit them back into the timeline in a different order - took forever
  • field order fixing

    Another thing I miss from FCP7 coming back to MC is the "change field order" filter. ON FCP7 you just drop an effect on the clip and the filed order is reversed. Simples. Related, but slightly different problem is when the field order is correct but the fileds are out of kilter with the frames. Again, from my time with FCP7 there is a purchase
  • audio peak detection in sequence

    I have been with Avid since it was invented, but work has dictated working with FCP7 more often than not. Now that era is passing and I'm working more on Avid again, what I miss from FCP7 is being able to mark audio peaks in a sequence between in and out points. In FCP7 you can mark the hot spots and adjust them before exporting a QT or mixdown
  • Re: Tutorial: Importing Images into MC and keeping their sharpness

    "Welcome to the Forum, Danny. Thanks for your input. I completely agree with you" Thanks for your welcome Douglas. Over the years, I've done quite a lot of docs featuring loads of stills with "rostrum" moves - as we say in th UK. Until 3 or 4 years ago, I used to get a lab print the jpegs and tiffs onto 10x8 inch photo paper

    Douglas, by pre-cropping your image to 1920x1080, you have reduced the number of pixels to fit the HD format as a full-frame image. That's fine if you are not going to zoom in. If you're planning "Ken burns" zooms and pans, you need to make sure that the image has more pixels. Your original image was 3888x2592. If you had set your
