    A couple of useful console commands

    A few I had not spotted before, usual warnings apply. I'm using MCA v2.6.6, don't know when they appeared, but would say v2.5 at a guess (certainly for the FSP one). Also in Xpress Pro.

    If you get video 'tearing' in Fullscreen playback mode, then you can try enabling 'FSP Locked' which locks the video to the monitors vsync. Type 'FSP Unlocked' to put back to the default setting.

    With my system this fixes the tearing, but I get a frame being help onto in the Open-GL buffer which momentarily appears when I move to another place in the timeline. However for others its works great.

    Secondly there is 'IgnoreQTRate' which when set to 'True' will ignore a Quicktime files play rate and import it frame for frame to the current project rate. For example if your working in a PAL 24p film project and have a 25fps Quicktime to import, you can set this Console command to 'IgnoreQTRate True' and the file will import frame for frame. With it turned off the import would drop a frame a second. Nice.

    Re: A couple of useful console commands

    Thanks!

    I have two questions:

    The first is, I have used your FSP Locked command and the full screen monitor plays my material without these anoying horizontal lines (not the interpolated ones) but my source recordmonitor still gives me these lines. Do you know a console command for that aswell? Or what causes these lines to be there?

    My second question is about the "MotionFXRendertype" console command (witch I used a lot on the old MC1000). It seems to be gone. Or is it?

    If you're using version 3.x, the sync command is now part of the FSP setup.  You don't need the console command.  Possibly MotionFXRendertype has gone for a similar reason.  If you use Timewarp for your motion control effect quality becomes part of the general render settings.
