Re: Reels!

Why did they want it in 2 channel configurations? Odd they wanted film order when DCPs are SMPTE channel order.

Re: Dante for Atmos

If you're running off SSD or a fast NAS or RAID I see no reason to run from a separate drive, but it did used to be one of the first things to fix if you were getting issues. Mainly due to spinning...

Re: Video sync drift

If you're getting serious drift, there could be something else at play. Lots of people use AJA and BM cards without a Sync HD without serious drift. Yes a fully genlocked system will be the tightest,...

Re: the QuickTime wrapper failed to load

H.264 IS AVC. The problem here was the video was H.265/HEVC which Pro Tools doesn't yet support.

Re: Quality control of LtRt

Yeah it was called Dolby Surround. Are you sure all the films being scanned are LtRt mixes? I work with a lot of archive material from the 50s through to the 90s, and it's mostly mono with a bit of...

I'm *almost* certain that's how it works anyway - can try and find the documentation.

Re: Time Shift Plug-In fps change

Elastique AAX will take care of everything, but do it in 2 separate internal processes, but the end user it looks like one process.

There's also Elastique V2 which only deals with pitch. For SRC...

Re: Time Shift Plug-In fps change

Get Elastique Pitch and/or Elastique AAX. Process on stems, not a full mix.

Re: How to transfer 32bit float into session without clipping

I know this is an old thread but I also find normalizing it works. You can keep the normalize value at 0 but it recovers all the information there and you don’t have to guess how much to bring it...

Re: How to transfer 32bit float into session without clipping

Is the audio embedded in the AAF? If so it won’t be higher than 24-bit so the 32-bit workflow won’t help you. It was probably recorded at 16 or 24-bit too. Does the waveform look clipped in RX? If it...

Re: Aja vs Blackmagic - current state of play in Pro Tools on Catalina/new Mac Pro

In a lot of cases it's just as good as a referenced system. Given you won't have it in your Atmos workflow I wouldn't worry too much.

On the drivers front, both BM and AJA are very stable these...

Re: Aja vs Blackmagic - current state of play in Pro Tools on Catalina/new Mac Pro

I'm guessing you'll be using the Dolby Audio Bridge to send audio from Pro Tools to DAPS? If so you won't be able to use your Sync HD, so don't worry about Video ref.

For almost all workflows it's...

Re: Aja vs Blackmagic with Video Slave/PT - current state of play

I believe VideoSlave plays nice with both. It certainly does with BM. Although Pro Tools is pretty good these days!

Re: Codecs & Catalina (what are you using?)

Premiere Pro, Resolve and plenty of others manage to implement their own QT export options so Avid should be more than capable of it!

Re: Codecs & Catalina (what are you using?)

Split the ref audio. MXF audio isn't supported yet, and now QuickTime support has gone so Pro Tools can't import the audio ref tracks either. Definitely avoid H.264!

Re: Best AAX DSP reverb available?

I think what is more likely is Avid will eventually give up on the 32 IO limit. They already have with the Dolby Audio Bridge. I think they just don't want to annoy HDX users, and finally admit HDX...

Re: Best AAX DSP reverb available?

Sadly given that HDX cards were underpowered 10 years ago, it's not all that crazy. What is crazy is that Avid won't let native go beyond 32 IO and they still flog the deadhorse that is HDX.

Re: Cedar DNS on Catalina yet?

Yeah, I mean I don’t use it daily, but had about 6 instances at once of DNS One. Never on a mega session or anything, but not a single freeze or crash. Installed fine, and no warning signs that it’s...

Using DNS One and Two on Catalina with no problems. I wasn't even aware there was an issue and bought after I upgraded!

On latest PT Ultimate.

Re: Pro Tools 2020 MJPEG Video

As Frank said, great advice. Lose those ancient and inefficient CODECs. ProRes Proxy or DNxHD36/DNxHR LB are the way to go.

Re: MTRX Studio + Atmos Prod Suite

You can setup an aggregate device, so some channels go to your B-chain and others are sent to Pro Tools via Dante. You could also entirely avoid the Dolby Audio Bridge and use a MTRX Studio and send...

Re: MTRX Studio + Atmos Prod Suite

It seems Alan Sallabank is doing exactly this. Recording the Atmos master in the renderer but sending the re-renders and 5.1 for loundess measuring back to Pro Tools.

Re: ProRes Video - Protools Ultimate PC Prob

QuickTime X on Mac should play it, if it doesn’t it may be corrupted. Premiere Pro is one piece of software than can encode to ProRes on Windows.

Re: ProRes Video - Protools Ultimate PC Prob

ProRes isn't an Avid CODEC, so that wouldn't work. As far as I know you'd need 3rd party software to encode to ProRes on Windows.
