Re: Video Capture?

FYI, the latest beta of media express captures to all the ProRes flavors (provided you have those codecs installed, of course) as well as MJPEG and DVCPROHD.

Re: Sync Generator to resolve PT with Blackmagic Extreme card

Well that doesn't make any sense to me at all. I can't even decipher what you're talking about. But it doesn't seem to have anything to do with resolved reference.

Re: Pro Tools Video Output Options Compendium

ProRes (Proxy) at 1080p24 has a data rate similar to NTSC DV25, believe it or not. And it looks great. 42 min ~ 11GB, feature film ~ 30GB.

Re: The Big Upgrade PCI to PCIe. Native or Accel!!!

Re: How Important is it to have my Video Satellite LE system Videos REF Locked

Don't worry, your work done with the canopus wasn't out of sync. (although, the canopus is known to play back with varying amounts of offset, on the order of <1 frame, but don't confuse offset with...

The "better" and "best" AAC encoding quality settings in the quicktime export dialog are optimized for 24-bit sources.

Re: Why won't my dealer sell me an HD Native card by itself?

So there is absolutely no "deal" for PCI-X owners???

That's ridiculous. We lost our PCIe crossgrade opportunity with no warning, and now there's nothing to replace it? We were gearing up to get 4...

Re: How much time for DVD Commentaries?

it depends on the condition of the track when you receive it.

if it's just a linear track with no edit breaks, sure, it'll take about as long as Meads indicated.
