[Avid-L2] Re: NitrisDX HDMI output YCbCr vs RGB No change?

I'm trying to regain my sanity for one but since you asked. It's a new bay, new monitor, new footage that is crappy. At least I have a good scope which I trust but I wanted to make sure when I was trying to balance the Pioneer Plasma to a Sony PVM 20L5 I wasn't somehow creating an issue comparing the HDMI feed to the Plasma to the HD component feed to the 20L5. When I could see no difference between HDMI settings I thought there might be some subtle gamma like issues between the settings that was creating a discrepancy between the monitors. It seems to my tired eyes the plasma is pulling the near blacks down a bit more than the CRT. This may be some sort of enhancement that helps give better looking blacks on the monitor. I'm not about to start digging for advanced menus on the plasma at this stage since the monitors are close depending on the video content. If Avid does lock the HDMI to YUV in an interlaced project it would be nice if it wouldn't let you toggle the settings in the video output pull down menu leading me to believe the HDMI was truely set to RGB. If there is really a drastic difference between the two I aint seeing it, which seems to support your information. I was starting to wonder if I could be seeing something like the difference in the betasp version of component signals vs regular component signals that I remember hearing about back in the day but never really spent much time in a component enviroment to really suss that one out. Bottom line is everything is working okay but I usually like to ring a bay out before I start color correcting but the weekend all by myself session with no AC or tech support, as if that exists anywhere these days. I will take some time tomorrow to see if a progressive project generates a noticable shift but now It's time to head out. Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I'll keep you posted.

Re: [Avid-L2] NitrisDX HDMI output YCbCr vs RGB No change?

'The project is 59.94I if that would make any difference'

It does, big time. Interlaced projects are by nature YUV 422, so I think your MC filters out the RGB mode for HDMI. Switch the format(top tab in prj settings) to 1080p/29.97 and you should see the difference. Which is very noticeable by the way.

What are you trying to achieve anyway?

[Avid-L2] Re: Is there an elegant way to locate a pan and zoom still?

Interesting. I tried a subsequence of a pan and zoom with no slug in the source import report but no info. Just tried your approach with a pan and zoom nested in a 3dwarp with no slug video underneath, the way it came from offline. Showing sources on the subsequence in it's own bin show a tape ref, odd, and a source with a name of one of the folders that some of the stills for this project are in. Going into the pan and zoom effects window asks for a 7 digit.jpg which is the actual still. A fine kettle of metadata if you ask me.

[Avid-L2] MacPro 2nd ethernet connection for network loop thru?

If I've got a MacPro Avid editing computer hooked to the ethernet network at work could I connect my macbookpro over ethernet to the 2nd ethernet connection of the macpro and get access to the network?  Is there a special setting in preferences to enable this if it's possible.  I'm not at the system right now so I wanted to check the possibility out before opting for a switch to get more ethernet connections in the bay.

Re: [Avid-L2] Re: Is there an elegant way to locate a pan and zoom still?

I tried a test -- cut a different picture as slug under an existing
pan&zoom effect, then subsequenced it into its own bin.

Displaying sources in that bin shows a source item for both the new and
old pictures.

So that's a little more elegant way to get the picture name, although
unlike Pat's method, I don't see any way to get the path information,
just the filename.

Cheers,
--Michael Brockington

[Avid-L2] Re: Is there an elegant way to locate a pan and zoom still?

I use Moving Picture plug in. It does a good job of linking to the hi res file. But I generally create a low res jpeg in photoshop with the same clip name and import that for use as the slug in the time line that I put the plug in on. This way I can match back to a facsimile of the photo and it has the same name. Plus all the low res photos are available for viewing as thumbnails in their own bin.

A little convoluted, but fail safe, especially in a doc with a couple of hundred photos.

Re: [Avid-L2] RE: Needed: Symphony Trainer

Why thank you Terry. Terry would be the other good suggestion, if he'd
do it.

I have done personal training on Symphony color correction for Turner
Networks in Atlanta (several times a year actually) and at Creative
Bubble in New York. I can provide references if you want.

I've been using Symphony's color correction since it was in beta...
what, over a decade ago? - and I have my own Symphony, so I use it
often, though I have to admit, that I haven't been using it as much as
Color lately. I miss the Color secondaries too much when I work in
Symphony.

(Five years ago - or maybe more - Greg Staten promised me at NAB that
the new color correction capabilities would blow me away in 18 months.
When he told me that I said "Wow. You're only going to be about two
years too late. Now they're SEVEN years too late. My how technology
time flies.

Have I talked myself out of a job yet?)

Anyway, I can usually train between 1 and 6 editors at a time in one
day of training. The fewer trainees the better for the editors.

And I'll even show you how Terry Curren uses curves!

OK, now you can blush, Shirley.

[Avid-L2] Re: Is there an elegant way to locate a pan and zoom still?

Wow that appeals to my inner geekdom and programmer wanna be side. When I have time I'll try that. So far the subsequence to laptop and have the effect ask for the still is the least non elegant solution. And I'm not gonna do no more sessions this weekend, except for the ones on Saturday and Sunday day and night. Man even my dog is asking for ID when I come home. Hope Rubin understands I'm doing it all for his treats. ;-)

To get back to my original request the pan and zoom effect definately knows to ask for the still by name when it is offline to the effect. How do I access that info when the still is still online so I can find out the source for the pan and zoom effect. Seems like the metadata is in the effect so why not let me see it? This is a bug/shortcoming of the Pan and Zoom effect, one of many unfortunately.
