Shirley, Some high frequency stuff will still sneak through. The
easiest way to deal with it is to turn off the alarm on your WFM. You
can activate the levels tab on your Symphony CC and it will clamp off
most RGB gamut errors. --J.B.

Hi,

I'm on Symphony 6.0.1.1, running on Mac 10.7.3, and I'm hoping to get my hands

hardware legalizer, have no intention of outsourcing he final legalization

Of course, Avid used to have a software legalizer as part of the Symphony color

Thanks in advance for any suggestions! I hope you all are having a great holiday

It's the safe color effect in the image effects category. You can drop it over the entire timeline.

I say:

Steve, I had no trouble accessing the download page. I found the

Re: [Avid-L2] DVD workflow

CCE is actually a full fledged PC encoder. The Mac version is just a
plugin for Compressor. If you go on the Doom9 forums (the best to learn
about anything encoding), you'll probably see some people compare the
quality off CCE to HCenc. You can check it out here (it's free):

Re: [Avid-L2] Re: Halp... Import Color/Gamma Shift

 

Job,
All nice, but there is no way to set correct levels on AMA import.
(In my case, Prores import does not work correctly with AMA, i need a normal
import with RGB as input..)

This makes very little sense to me, sorry.

There are two project types, RGB709 and YCrCb709. One is 4:4:4, the other is
4:2:2. In either, Avid works in studio swing (16-235 in 8-bit).

The RGB/601/709 setting in the import dialogue box is ill-named, and does
not refer to 4:4:4 versus 4:2:2 but rather to full swing (0-255 8bit) versus
studio swing (16-235 8bit).

Nothing changed with those import settings in v6.

When you AMA, you STILL need to consider full swing versus studio swing
issues, and through Source Settings you can still modify these settings when
needed.

See for some more explanation:
http://www.xs4all.nl/~terburg/Publications/601_709_RGB.pdf

Re: [Avid-L2] DVD workflow

 

I still am very fond of Cinemacraft, but it will set you back some 1K
(cheap, i've paid over 2K back in the days).
But, only reason to use a very expensive encoder is if you want really low
bitrates.
If you stay over about 5000 the differences are very hard to spot, unless
you have a really lousy encoder.
(I had to do commercial DVD's with a huge amount of difficult content, so i
needed the best of the best, and there were not many alternatives back then)
IOW, there is open source that will do what you want, for free...
