Re: [Avid-L2] MXF subfolder

 

I renamed the "1" folder to "SYMPH1.2" and the magic of database building started happening.
Thanks.

[Avid-L2] MXF subfolder

 

I have a folder on our ISIS - Avid MediaFiles\MXF\1. MC is not recognizing that "1" folder or the Avid MXF files are in it.  It is not rebuilding the database.
There are other folders such as Avid MediaFiles\MXF\SYMPH1.1 that it does recognize and maintains the database.
What could be wrong with the "1" folder?

thanks for any input.

Re: [Avid-L2] Re: video monitor

 

I just got a 24" HP Dreamcolor (within my budget for my home system). Feeding it via a Matrox MX02 Mini and HDMI. Audio out to feed monitors. Good for what I need.

If you can live with "smaller" -- you might want to look into the brand new 27" HP Z27x.

Reportedly a better panel, better features, better signal compatibility (including 4k), better calibration options -- and seemingly less expensive than the LP2480zx (at least at B&H).

The only cautions I am aware of (I don't own one yet) would be that the inputs are limited to HDMI and DisplayPort -- and that the HDMI input is currently 1.4, and not yet 2.0.

On ISIS. 'Unity Attic' at top level of each workspace. On a Mac with local drives, Users>Shared>AvidMediaComposer>Avid Attic. On Windows, probably in Public folder (I'm behind the times on Windows).

Hi there

 

We used to routinely delete the attic on Unity once in a while when it got large and what used to happen is a new one got created and every bin that got opening just started building new attic folders.

 

We are running a mix of 6.5.4 and 7.04 and we find bins that used to have attic files don't build a new attic. If we make a new bin then an attic folder is created. The error suggests the MC is looking for the last good attic file and because it can't find it doesn't make a new one.

 

Any way around this?

 

Thanks

 

NIge

Re: [Avid-L2] video monitor

 

No longer made, I don't think there's much stock left, if any.


When I asked a similar Q recently, folks suggested the (more expensive) Flanders Image 50" screen.

You're best bet is probably a Dreamcolor LP2480zx.

Set the IOExpress HDMI output to pure p and color space to RGB so that you can unlock the color management in the monitor, then choose REC709 color space and you should be good to go.

Wondering what folks like for a video monitor these days -- on the more inexpensive end. 

Not looking for a colour-critical grading monitor, or anything close to it, just something decent in the 40 - 50" range.

Usually I work with 3 computer monitors, but we're set up with an AJA IO Express for this project, so a broadcast monitor makes sense.  The IO Express doesn't seem to do cross-conversions.  Our project format is 1080/23.98p -- anything to be careful about in terms of the monitor accepting the signal?

I remember some discussion of progressive vs psf, but that was awhile ago.  It looks to me like the AJA box can output either one -- does that sound right? 

Thanks for any recommendations,
--Michael
