Re: [Avid-L2] Error -2034

Yup. That's what was happening to me too. Made the "divide and conquer"
method not practical.

Re: [Avid-L2] Error -2034

 

What I finally did was forced a transcode to DNxHD 145, then exported
from that. I also turned off the "streaming' selection, so I'm not sure
which solved the issue.

[Avid-L2] Re: Canon 5D ama transcode has glitches is Perian a glitch maker?

 

I just noticed a typo in one of my earlier posts in this thread. The level issues on the ama'd clips on the mcsoft systems is that set to do not modify levels the clips show up as 0-255 according to the avid RGB parade waveform in color correction. Basically it's like a 601/709 vs RGB discrepancy.

Now in light of all this fun and the thread about the tapeless archive initiative being abandoned by the BBC I'd just like to say how much File Based SUCKS!!!!!. I know it's not going away but every time I turn around tapeless is biting me in the arse. Just last night when the AE's had 19 clips to re transcode due to level issues mentioned above the sequence lost it's ability to find clips in the decompose bin. Somehow the original transcode was done with 60 frame handles but after last nights ama clip fixes the sequence thought it had been entirely retranscode with 30 frame handles. Ironically by isolating clips in sub sequences I could show the reference clip in a bin and it was just like the original clips only with 30 frame handles and reveal file showed it still pointing to the original 60 frame handle mxf media file. Finally I had to manually highlight the original decompose bin clips and relink the sequence using relink to highlighted clips in open bins. After that I could matchframe and use the find in bin function. Tell me why I'm supposed to be happier with file based? Yeah I didn't have to buy an expensive SR deck but this project is SD shot mostly DVCPro it's just the interviews shot on Canon that are driving me nuts.

It is my understanding that these canon files are coming in through the QT plugin and with no QT 7.6.6 Avid must be using QT X on the Ae system. My SNDX has QT 7.6.6 and 7.6.2 as well as QT player which I assume is the QT X. This seems like a meaningful difference in the systems.

[Avid-L2] Re: Canon 5D ama transcode has glitches is Perian a glitch maker?

 

It doesn't look like there is any EOS app as I don't see a Canon folder in the applications folder. I did notice that the Ae's system only has QT X and no QT 7.6.6. I don't know what the Avid heirarchy is for which QT engine is implemented for Avid's ama but perhaps that might be a reason for the difference in level interpretation on the ama linked clips.

[Avid-L2] Re: Canon 5D ama transcode has glitches is Perian a glitch maker?

 

We removed/disabled Perian and saw no level difference. On my SNDX 5.5.3 I only have two ama plugins installed the Red R3D (R3SDK V3.1) Ver 1.5 which I assume has no epic support because we're 5.5.3 and the Quicktime plugin V1.2. The media composer system has just the same Quicktime Plugin. When they ama link to the Canon files all start time codes are 00:00:00:00 with the exception of a group of differently named clips. The zero time code start file names starting with MVI_6442_INTY-JOE.new01 with everything after the "MVI_" changing for each clip although there will be some groups of clips that have everything the same except the ".new01, .new02 etc....) The other clips that originally transcoded with glitches have clip names like WT5A0205-INRY-JOW.new01 and these clips have normal like TOD time code ascending for example 5;05;58;17. All the clips with or without glitches on transcode have the level discrepancy in between my symphony and the mcsoft ama linked clips. I will check on the other softwares on the mc systems.

I have the Canon XF Plugin on my home system. without any Canon plugin is it correct to assume the Canon files in the DCIM folder are being linked trough the QT plugin?

Re: [Avid-L2] Re: BBC axes £98m Digital Media "tapeless" Initiative

Terry, I knew you'd like that line. :-)

Michael, good point. Same sort of thing happened out here when a network affiliate tried to go tapeless/IP a few years ahead of the curve.

Others?

Jim

[Avid-L2] BBC axes £98m Digital Media "tapeless" Initiative

Yow! Anyone know more (and allowed to talk about it)?

=====
BBC axes £98m technology project to avoid 'throwing good money after bad'
Independent investigation launched after Digital Media Initiative, which aimed to digitise archive, results in catalogue of errors

The BBC has admitted that it has wasted almost £100m on a technology project that was designed to make the corporation "tapeless", and has closed it to stop it "throwing good money after bad".

The BBC has spent £98.4m on the controversial Digital Media Initiative – which was designed to do away with video tapes and create a kind of internal YouTube of BBC archive content that staff can access, upload, edit and then air from their computers – the equivalent of almost 660,000 licence fees.

[Avid-L2] Re: marquee question

 

> could we just say that marquee has room for improvement?

Yes, we could say that. And without getting into another Avid-bashing session, we might also characterize the Title Tool and Marquee as being the most completely pathetic excuses for titling solutions in the editing market. Because they are -- and there's no excuse for it.

You know, it was one thing when everyone in the world subscribed to a offline/online workflow, and you knew that what you were doing was temp at best. However, those days are long-gone -- and Avid still hasn't got the memo.

I've just wasted hours on a big project grappling with the moronic limitations of both toolsets -- and the whole time, as my blood pressure rose, all I could hear in my mind were the repeated empty promises of the past decade.

And those promises continue. Stand-up and deliver, Avid. Some of us are getting very tired of waiting.
