Re: [Avid-L2] Pan and Zoom Avid really you can't fix this?

 


Stagetools is pretty good, but it's effect timeline is pretty rudimentary, and I don't think it automatically extends media to account for dissolves.

Use Stagetools. You won't crash, you'll render fast and you'll have control.
and you'll never have to use pan and zoom again.

I just wanted to add that while there is the BCC pan and zoom plug-in, I just used it on a project with 120 stills and I was in render hell with it. I'd render, it would create the render file and then not link to it (blue dot remained). Also, while it had a good deal of features, it lacks rotation on the X and Y axes.

Good info. Funny when I use avid help and search for "disable search" only things about optimizing vista and windows 7 performance come up. I'd still like to know how the _SearchDB_ is managed in a unity environment. Sense it is part of the project folder when multiple users have a unity project open who gets to have access to the _SearchDB_? Would it make sense to disable search on all but one station to speed the unity up.

All 64 bit applications must run 64 bit plug-ins. So a plug-in that works for 32 bit Media Composer, would need - at a minimum - recompiling for 64 bit for a 64 Media Composer.

[Avid-L2] Re: Pan and Zoom Avid really you can't fix this?

 

Also with Pan and Zoom there are times depending on the effect you can't slug in the still even if you want to because you are keying over a background underneath and the slug would cover the background. This may also be true with moving pictures if you import with alpha and key it. It's been a while since I did this with Moving Pictures so I may be wrong. Also one of the gothchas with moving pictures is the motion path info is not really saved as part of the effect, like a lot of other parameters. So if in offline you adjust the ease in, ease out kinda parameters in online the moving picture will ignore that and use whatever motion parameters were used the last time moving pictures was used on the online system. Very sneaky and totally wrong. Just like the 16x9 vs. 4x3 aspect setting. In my opinion all this data should be translated to the effect in online.

Yes moving pictures is nice but it has quirks too. The biggest problem is cost. When they have 20 bays that would need moving pictures you can bet the Bean Counters will just say use Pan and Zoom cause some Bonehead will say, "Avid has Pan and Zoom for stills." Mind you the people who make these decisions have no idea of how much they end up spending in extra man hours for work flow issues like this. I'm not asking for major upgrade to Pan and Zoom just some basic bug fixes and gotchas that can't be that hard to achieve.

Only if they imported the still and cut it in the timeline. (Recommended practice) Often you will get just the effect cut over filler. Then there is no easy way to track back to what picture it was linked to since that is done outside of Media Composer's universe by the AVX plugin.
