Re: [Avid-L2] Likely done with Avid

 

Marcus - You pretty much described my life here. 

I keep Avid around for personal projects and because I don't want to loose those skills.  There's a high end feature director in my market, and she's Avid only, so it pays to keep it up - but nearly all of my corporate work is on Premiere.  There's just to comparison when you have to ingest multiple file formats, and output multiple file formats, or when you need to work with a bunch of graphics.  It's just easier.

Right now my Avid is crunching a Canon MXF file over to h.264 though.  Premiere wouldn't even recognize it as media and the Avid took it right in using AMA.  First time that's happened to me - but it was worth keeping the avid around just for this one project.

Yes, you do have to be very neurotic about keeping your media organized, because Premiere will really let you screw yourself - but I hop from two different windows systems to a Mac system, to my laptop - and the projects open just fine every time.

Hi All,

Been reading this thread with great interest.

I've been using Avid since the very early days, after I moved on from
D-Vision! But I left the employed post production environment almost
10years ago just when HD was gathering momentum. But in my freelance
roles I continued using Avids. Certainly not broke so no need to fix it.

I twiddled and dipped my toes with Premiere from time to time but it
never really seemed to work right and I got frustrated and just headed
home to Avid where it was safe and warm and everything worked.

But then came the world where getting it onto tape was not the be all
and end all of everything. Suddenly people wanted an 'medja file' or
can I e-mail this 10second clip. I noticed I was having to do the edit,
export a clip in which ever was the nice and quick codec and then re
compress it in media encoder to what the client wanted. Seemed a bit
clunky. One time a client wanted to 'just show' someone something we'd
do so they shot it on their mobile phone and sent it that way.

So I moved on to Premier.. Same client a few months later wanted to do
the same thing, the phone came out.. Hold on I said... Click, click,
tap, queue, export to a youtube preset. Carry on working.. A couple of
minutes later, whilst still working, I get a noise and flick back to
media encoder and pull up the uploaded youtube link.. 1080p unlisted,
send that to your client (I say in the e-mail to their phone.)

It is the ability for me to turn things around so quickly that lost my
patience with Avid and threw me at Premier Pro. Sure it is an A$$ when
discs need moving or when stuff gets lost, but you learn to deal with
that in the ways we learned to deal with 'time of day' camera rolls shot
over multiple days. You get on with it and come out the other side
stronger.

The final death knell for my avid was when I recently completed an 18
camera theatre production using PP CC. Sure it was an uphill struggle
on week 1. Things got lost, drives wouldn't serve up things fast enough
and moving media around and getting PP to find it when it's not where it
left it is tantamount to 'understanding women' (excuse the sexism but I
think it's a good analogy :-) ) But the show has multiple media types,
some of the inserts were shot 'crowd sourced' on mobile phones at daft
frame rates, aspects and codecs. there is 4K material, HD, SD and (aside
from playing all those streams at once) Premiere didn't even let me
notice there were all these variables. It just got on with it.

And now that show is done. Deliverables... Took me about 20minutes to
set going (yeah still takes hours to check when they are done) but it is
just the ease of in and out of things that has made me switch and I am
now a paid up Adobe subscriber. I'm sure there will be problems with
the software upgrading itself mid project (always a no no in my book) or
some other thing to totally F U the day, but keep good daily backups and
you'll only ever loose a day or two if it goes pear shaped.

The only fly in the ointment is I have to keep an old version of CS5 on
another laptop for when I want to digitise from my HDV camcorder :-)

Cheers,

Re: [Avid-L2] Re: Firefox tip for downloading many multiple files increasing limit

 

No connection issue possible.  This card has 3 bncs on it.  Ref in, SDI IN, SDI OUT.  It works fine on my OS 8.5 startup drive with Avid 8.4.5.  Now that I've ugraded to 10.9.5 I only see SD output from the card.  I do see Avid's video it's just SD.  There's only one output spigot which I haven't changed.  If I was on the Ref or SDI input I would see no signal at all.  Even with Avid not running there is a choice for what format to output and no matter what I toggle that to, in this case 1080P 23.976 the SDI Output is still SD.  This was with Video Desktop 10.6.  I've downloaded all the way back to Video desktop 9.2.3 or so.  I went back downloading each version back from 10.6 stopping at the last one that no longer said it was supported in 10.9.  I think that was around 9.2.3 ish.  I will start with the first version compatible with 10.9 and see what it outputs standalone with no software running and if it will toggle.  Then I'll move on from there.

When I fire up my NitrisDX it works fine and spits out HD 1080P 23.976 so I can always go there but I like the decklink because it's quieter in my edit room at home.  I didn't spring for an acoustically isolated rack.  Maybe for Xmas.

Re: [Avid-L2] Likely done with Avid

 

While I agree with you that they should have stuck to common conventions, I would offer that FCPX conforms to the naming conventions used in other Apple software. In addition, Apple made a definite move away from terminology based on film editing nomenclature. There's really no point using film-based terms in a digital application, but of course, that's what most of us are comfortable with.


Since we are talking about news cutting, though, FCPX uses the term "Event" in place of "Bin". In the context of holding source footage for a news story, it seems to me that Event is just as appropriate a term as Bin. Not the choice I would have made, but it does have a logic to it.

- Oliver

Oliver Peters - editor | colorist

Why FCP-X didn't maintain the gui conventions like Edius, Avid or PP is beyond me. This is no different than all cockpits in airplanes having a uniform commonality of controls and naming conventions.

Among editors and production folks I've talked too when I bring up FCP X they just roll their eyes, moan and walk off talking to themselves.

Oliver I guess I'm just getting old and grumpy. I just don't get why functional naming conventions that are universal among NLE's are not used?

When I went from Avid to Premiere to
FCP 7 it was relatively painless.
Why FCP-X didn't maintain the gui conventions like Edius, Avid or PP is beyond me. This is no different than all cockpits in airplanes having a uniform commonality of controls and naming conventions.

Among editors and production folks I've talked too when I bring up FCP X they just roll their eyes, moan and walk off talking to themselves.

Tom,

Have you ever cut anything for any length of time with FCPX? IMHO, to say it's like iMovie is a bit of a knee-jerk comment that doesn't match the facts. X is pretty complex once you get past the initial level. There's a lot of precision and strong database management. If anything, it's optimized for fast cutting.

I understand it's not everyone's cup of tea, but it is quite capable and there are plenty of network broadcast entities around the world that have and are adopting it. And after all, doesn't every NLE developer impose limitations and a design that determines how they want us to work?

FCP X's layout and terminology is so amateurish and deplorable it's a joke. It reminds me of Newscutter another
misfire. Screw Apple and their attitude that's the way we should work. It's iMovie on steroids and that ain't saying much....
