[Avid-L2] Re: Render Test Here's a new take that seems like BS?

 

Well after some testing it is now being suggested that if we make our graphics imports to 10:1 instead of 1:1 SD Avid mxf it will speed up our system. For three years we've always imported graphics and stills at 1:1 so we don't have to reimport for online etc... Now that we had our unity issues I've mentioned and sorted those out with a new media net unity connected with fibre instead of ethernet it is being suggested that the sluggish performance we had on very nested and complex sequences will be improved dramatically by importing our graphics at 10:1 instead of how we have always done it 1:1 SD. Perhaps this ties into the previous suggestion that we not render at 1:1 but render to 10:1. Now I'm sure our 3.1.1 ish media composers are rendering to same as source so I would think 10:1 media would render to 10:1 but the graphics at 1:1 would render at 1:1. I'm of the opinion the sluggish behavior was primarily due to complex nested sequences with many Pan and Zoom unrendered stills. One of the problem sequences would not save in a bin without breaking it in half. Once I had finished color correction and rendered all the stills in Pan and Zoom individually not a top down render like offline does I could save the whole sequence. This leads me to believe it is something about all the pointers and I believe the terms is objects that is the main problem here. All but the complex shows have worked fine. I checked bin info and saw an item count but nothing about object count. Is object the correct term and if so how does one asses that. I just can't buy that 1:1 graphic imports are drastically slowing down our system, especially after 3 years of relative stable performance except on really complex sequences which I see in all the facilities I work in. Anybody know how to check object count?

they are foam "tubes" in a way that expanded the size of the stylus. too many artists pinch that stylus and that can lead to shoulder pain, wrist, etc. You can stop by any physical therapy place and they can show you what the stuff looks like.

[Avid-L2] Re: Alexa ProRes 444 Log C to DNxHD?

 

Just to add a different solution, I recently had to deal with a similar
dailies workflow for a feature. A program called ³Alexicc4² automated the
process, and a tape operator handled the dailies ­ point to program to the
the Alexa footage, and the folder/drive for the transcoded files, and it
adds the Alexa Log C to Rec 709 LUT and transodes to the MXF resolution of
your choice. All metadata was retained, and the offline editor was happy.
There is a further solution by the same company, Light Illusion, to add
presets with looks created on set.

Re: [Avid-L2] Editor Wellness Tips

 

I recently found an adjustable height desk at a used office furniture
store here in Portland, OR. I just stumbled across it, hadn't thought
to look there (I was eying the expensive things from Anthro or Oregon's
own Martin & Ziegler). The desk is solid and in good shape, only cost
me a few hundred dollars.

I added some inexpensive wooded 4-space equipment racks to hold audio
gear (I have a ProTools setup), bolted to the table, with monitors on
top of these.

[Avid-L2] LTC output with AJA I/O Express?

 

IIRC LTC has not yet been supported on 3rd party open I/O.  I'm running Symphony 6.0.3 and the AJA I/O on my MBP OS 10.6.8.  I know not the supported OS but so far it's working.  Does anybody know if 6.5 did anything with Open I/O in regards to LTC support?  Right now I don't even see the check box for LTC on playback in the general settings tab.  I guess that is normal unless you have Avid Hardware like Nitris DX which I use to feed my error logging scope on my 5.5.3 SNDX at work.  Come on Avid I'm Jonesing  for a SMPTE LTC Fix.  Break me off a taste I won't go overboard this time, really.  ;-)  I don't find anything with a quick google search other than it isn't supported on the first version of open I/O.

Re: [Avid-L2] Editor Wellness Tips

 

I don't know who makes best ones, but I suspect that the "best" ones probably cost a lot of money. A producer friend of mine referred me to this one available at Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Adjustable-Height-Desk-Table-Workstation/dp/B00626A38A/ref=sr_1_11?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1347259616&sr=1-11&keywords=sit+stand+desk

I think you pay a lot for push button adjustment. This is one is affordable because it uses a hand crank.

Re: [Avid-L2] audio mystery

 

Was the problem all confined to one specific audio clip? And if so, was there anything different about that clips source, import specs, etc?

We'll probably never know, but I'm glad at least it's over for you.

I just replaced the edits with gain keyframes and that did the trick. It is so
odd as the other cuts of music all have edits and dissolves and even this
problem cue has other edits and dissolves. But at those points in the timeline,
nothing else took the stutter sound away.
