  • Re: CONSISTENCY CHECK FAILURE importing HDV on NAS drive

    I get the first error from time to time fast importing hdv material too, thankfully, not as often as in the past. What sometimes fixes the problem is to use an old program called HDV Split, which was primarily a tape capture program for HDV. However, it has another very useful feature for files already on disk: SCENE SPLITTING. Most of the time running

  • Re: Help! Need to bring .M2V files into MC7.

    Hi Ian, It's been several years since I needed to import M2V from Liquid to MC, but what worked for me then was MPEG StreamClip. i converted the M2V files to .ts files. Then just dragged and dropped the files into an MC bin. Media Composer fast imports the .ts files the same as importing the .m2t files from my DataVideo DN-60. (Used with my Canon

    Good choice!

  • Re: where are the rolling titles?

    Blue dot means a non-realtime effect, so it can't be played back from the time line until rendered. It's the same with some of the Avid FX effects too, not just rolling titles. Can you scroll through frame by frame in the record monitor and see your rolling title? If you can't see it scrolling through frame by frame, are you sure V3 is active

  • Re: where are the rolling titles?

    What happens when you view it in the record monitor, not the source monitor, and manually scroll through? Also, is there a green dot in the corner of the title icon, showing that it needs to be rendered? The reason I ask is that my Marquee scrolling titles won't play until they are rendered, but I can scroll though them to see how they appear over

  • Re: Firewire to USB 2 or 3 cable / connector?

    For desktops, there may still be some SoundBlaster audio cards that have a firewire port. There may also be some PCI Firewire Cards available, probably used. I used to have one made by Pinnacle. You might try a search on EBay. Also, I see quite a few used ( I know you said NEW) laptops in Pawn Shops and on CraigsList that have firewire ports. I have

  • Re: How to handle HD footage in Avid Media Composer

    Like Dave says, the .M2T files fast import. However, to save space, I choose HDV 1080i MXF from the import dialog, which leaves the files at their original size. In fact, the files are merely rewrapped, not converted at all. So the import process is extremely fast. My 32gb cards hold 2 hours 21 minutes of footage and only take about 12 minutes to import

  • Re: New blog, Intellectual Property

    I found your blog post very useful as well, and bookmarked it a while back in my IP COPYRIGHT AND PRIVACY ISSUES folder. A lot of my clients have no idea of these issues, and often don't want to take my word that "You can't use such and such in your project unless..." Then I email the appropriate links from that folder to them, including

  • Re: HDV M2T files cannot be (fast) imported into MC 8.1 - Crash

    [quote user="BarkinMadd"] Thanks Tomas - I just dug-up Avid's published workflow for HDV M2T from CF cards and they clearly state that either import or drag and drop will work. Both cause MC 8.1 to crash and burn. I wonder if you wouldn't mind passing on this variation in workflow (assuming you have someone's ear at Avid). The

  • Re: Sony MT2 import

    Most of my work is still HDV, but no longer tape. My footage is stored as M2T files on CF cards from my DataVideo DN-60 recorders. I've also imported files from the Sony unit. It works the same. The simplest method is old fashioned "Drag and Drop." Step 1: Copy the contents of the card to a directory (folder) on a hard drive. I create
