Default Setting a PT HD rig with a sync HD device as the slave to a DCP


I could use some advice on the following: We've got a DCP on a DCP 2000 server running that needs a PT session to sync to it as a slave. How would I best go about setting up the PT session to follow the LTC that the DCP will generate?

Thank you in advance,

Default Re: Setting a PT HD rig with a sync HD device as the slave to a DCP

Patch LTC from DC server to SYNC HD and send same trilevel master video ref to both the SYNC HD and DCP server and make sure the DCP server is locked to ext video ref.
Set PT to
clock master: SYNC HD
Clock Reference: Video Ref.
Ref format: set to whatever your clock is set to. (most likely 1080P24 if it's a 24.00fps film).

Then hit command-J (chase external LTC) in PT.

The clocking is important otherwise they will drift apart over a long film.

PTHDn 2024.3 (OSX13.6.5), 8x8x8, MacPro 14,8, AJA LHi, SYNC HD, all genlocked via AJA GEN10, 64GB RAM, Xilica Neutrino, Meyersound Acheron
