  • Re: avid titler+ cannot work in 2020.6

    I can meet you halfway and it might provide a clue. When I right click on an unselected segment of filler and try to create a title Avid throws an error, but when I select the segment and right click it works as expected.

  • Re: Apples move away from Intel CPUs to ARM

    I dumped Apple from my phone and PC, and other than a few cosmetic niceties haven't missed it. Indeed, day to day work became smoother and less frustrating. I'm not particularly an Apple hater. I admire their innovations over the years, but on an operational level -- why bother?

  • Re: What to use for H.264 encoding....

    For web-bound work, my normal output procedure now is to export an mxf op-1a file at a suitable DNxHD or DNxHR bitrate and then use Adobe Media Encoder to create h.264 mp4s. That said, Avid will now directly output h.264 into a .mov container but audio encoding remains limited to pcm. With 32-bit quicktime no longer in the loop it's much faster

  • Re: Import of 50i and *.mov files into 50p project

    Try linking first, but Blu Ray Video and variable frame rate iphone video are not usually supported by Avid. You can use something like shutter encoder to convert them into appropriate flavors of DNxHD or DNxHR and then link the new files.

    Of course. Avid is very good at working with multiple framerates and filetypes. You may want to consider linking and consolidating rather than straight out importing. But you're going to have to supply more information about those files if you want more specific advice.

  • Re: can I edit doc (for web) using 720p proxy files—and skip the huge 4K files?)

    There are a number of ways to skin this cat, but here is what I would do. Create a 720p project and link to the 4K files. Transcode from the links to either 1/4 source resolution (1920x1080) or 1/16 source resolution (960x540) Edit away. When you are ready to output, link back to the 4K files and export. This way you always have the 4K option available

  • Re: Using Shapes in Symphony Color Corrector

    Clicking on the image and hitting CTRL-L zooms into the image in every mode I've ever tried. CTRL-K zooms back out. ALT-CTRL gives you the hand tool to navigate around. Obviously it doen't make the window bigger, but it gives you more precise control of placement.

  • Re: Does Avid accept H265 yet?

    [quote user="DIESELE"]y pro camera is H264, as was my 10 year old Panasonic P2 AVC camera! Can you tell me why you think the Shutter Encoder DNxHR type HQX is 10 bit - the spec seems to say 12 bit for DNxHR type HQX ? [/quote] Double checked -- both MediaInfo and Premiere are reporting the files as 10-bit.

  • Re: Does Avid accept H265 yet?

    [quote user="DIESELE"] It works but produces DNxHR HQX intra files 10 times bigger than the H265. These barely play! It ups the 10 bit source to 12 bit (which isnt really possible of course) creating huge files and pointless fro my 10bit Symphony? Anyone know why there isnt a 10 bit option in DNxHR? Same as source bitrate...? [/quote] Hi DIESELE

  • Re: Oversized motiongraphics

    Link to your 4K media. Cut it into your timeline. Use FrameFlex to do your moves. (Optionally you can transcode your linked media at either full raster size or a smaller proxy size. As long as you relink to your source before outputting you're good to go.)
