Re: [Avid-L2] WAY OT: Needed - an Accountant (for an individual - not a company) with familiarity of our industry

 

Where are you located?

Hey All.

Way Off topic, but I'm in need of an accountant / tax preparation team
to help out as I am getting ready to set myself up as an LLC to cover
all my business needs. Unfortunately, I know no one that meets my
criteria and thought I'd reach out and see if anyone here would want to
suggest an individual or two.

Thanks in advance.

Mark

Re: [Avid-L2] Making room for the Blackmagic Smartview 4K [1 Attachment]

 

just watched the video "what's new at IBC" on the blackmagicdesign site. https://www.blackmagicdesign.com

Cool to have a CEO demo new stuff, a CEO who's a geek nerd gearhead whatever, seems to make sense.
eyeon, fusion, hopefully will soon run on mac OS. Still wish BMD had its' eye on acquiring Avid.

I'd love to hear what that looks like from the IBC floor.  I have smart view 17- and the color is very funky- its really only good for making sure there's a picture.  The 5" on my black magic camera is more accurate!  I'm mostly a fan of BM stuff, love resolve and my (multiple) camerasp, but I even sent back the smartview under warranty thinking mine was just defective - and the replacement was actually more ugly.  It's worth pretty much what it cost.  

The idea that the UHD monitor can accept luts and has a blue-check function is promising.

Just been looking at Blackmagic's new 'broadcast' monitor, the Smartview 4K. 

Looking at the specs, there seems to be no mention of any calibration procedure/hardware/software, so that rules it out for any serious grading work, although it might make a good client monitor. There's also a claim that HD upscaling to 3840x2160 using their Pixelmotion algorithms is 'visually transparent, artifact free scaling'  - something I have to see. 
But is it really 482 inches wide?? Sounds like a re-run of the metric/imperial fiasco of the Mars climate orbiter again!

Re: [Avid-L2] sum of clip times in bin/project

 

I ended up exporting a tab delimited file. I had many duplicate clips for some reason. Then used Excel to get rid of the dupes. Then used Text wrangler to move the frames (final :xx) in each cell, to another cell, since Excel can't add frames properly. Then summed the time column as a duration. That gave me about 60 hours. and then added the frame column as straight numeric, dividing by 24 to get seconds and by 60 to get minutes. 


I then double checked with some rough math:
30 days of shooting at approximately 6 RED cards per day would be about 180 cards.
I added up the cards as well and got 185. Our biggest day we shot 10 cards, our shortest days we shot 4. Usually running 2 cameras. Sometimes 3. Sometimes only 1.

I'm not sure the size of the cards - thinking they were 64s. We shot 4K most of the time but also some 5K. Did very little shooting at 48fps or 36fps. Mostly 24fps. So does about 20 minutes per card sound right? If so, the MAXIMUM time we could have gotten out of 185 cards would be about 61hours and 40 minutes.

The spread sheet summed up to just under 59 hours. So that tells me that the math is correct.

Note, the last time I used that it will not calculate over 24 hours and rolls back to 00:.  So while you may have 50 hours of material it will display as 02:xx:xx:xx.  The footage rolls over at 100000.  So you do a few chunks of clips to get the proper count.

Hi Steve,
Is this what you're looking for:

Select clips in bin.
Right-Click.
Get Bin Info.

I went to the Media Tool and created a master clip list of JUST the video master clips.

Is there a way to sum the DURATION?

I tried exporting that as a TAB DELIMITED file and taking it to Excel.

But then you've got a column for FRAMES that Excel doesn't know how to convert to 24 fps/seconds.

Is there a Console command I can run on a bin or a some other way to come up with a footage number?

You used to be able to do a get info on a bin and it would sum up the time.

Re: [Avid-L2] sum of clip times in bin/project

 

I knew about this right click Get Bin Info, but for some reason, it only tells me the number of clips without giving a total duration. The duration for approximately 2200 clips is 00:00. This is version 8.x on a Mac.

And on a related note, I was digging through a drawer today and found my
old Ready-Eddy footage calculator. --J.B.
