[Avid-L2] Re: Avid Airspeed

 

So I tried transcoding the clip before making a sequence into every available type and every time I get unsupported format of either  Uncompressed, DVC PRO or JPEG:AVBP.

 

So evidently MC 5.5.2 doesnt let me transcode any lower than DV25P and I dont think the airspeed supports progressive.  I made a 30i project, but still cant ranscode any clips in DV25...so again, still stuck....grrr

Have you tried the highest rated email app?

Okay...I realized I was using an HD project which isnt supported without an DNxchagne so I created an and NTSC 24P and imported some QT footage from an iphone and set import match project settings. When I try to send to playback device, I get "Unsupported Media Format in project AVID DVCPRO 25, but the AS manual says that NSTC DVCPRO (DV25 411) is supported....Though IM not entirely sure those two are the exact same thing =)

Re: [Avid-L2] Re: Avid Airspeed

 

okay so an UPDATE on my saga with the AirSpeed. I have tried Transfer. I have tried TM 2.2, 2.2.1 and 2.4 and everything seems to be set up right. But when I try to send TO the Airpseed I get this:

 

"Internal error in the DLL that sends media to playback device"

 

When I try to bring clips FROM he Airspeed, I get this:

 

" The required DLL for the ingest machine could not be located"

 

Additionally, the FTP transfer FROM the Airspeed doesnt work due to the default FTP setting of BIN (I) for binary transfer. From a command line FTP, these transfer also fail, however if I dont change the transfer mode to binary, it does in fact transfer the files to a designated folder but the local TE has no awareness of ware to pick these files up to bring into the BIN.

 

There MUST be a version issue, somewhere.

Im on MC 5.5.2

TM is 2.2.1

Airspeed is 2.7.11.R21020

Re: [Avid-L2] Is there a quality setting in New Blue fX titles? Now New Blue Enima

 

I remember your posts well and had to contact you directly when I finally had to promote an effect.  This kind of derelection of a core tool to most workflows is just plain BS.  Title tool may be limited and Kludgey but it's the Devil we all know.  To force anything above HD to resort to New Blue Titler which is a half assed implementation of a title tool replacement is just plain bad management.  Perhaps "Bad Management" and Avid in the same sentence is redundant but not inaccurate.  


It is not my intention to slam New Blue Titler as an app.  It seems to have potential to do many more sophisticated things.  It just is not implemented in Avid in a way that makes it an intuitive and simple to use replacement for the title tool.  This combined with the fact that offline will never move off title tool is just more icing on the Doo Doo sandwich Avid has served up for the user base.

The other gotcha that took me a while to suss out was that the timeline has to be in the foreground for promoting titles to New Blue. Normally you enter the effects editor, and then select to promote the title (a buried pulldown menu item not found in the effect editor). Then you will get the same "Install New Blue" bullshit error message. 

The proper way is to enter effect editor, now bring the timeline window back into the foreground, then go to the hidden pulldown menu to promote the title. 

Not to worry, this is Avid's way of giving us new features instead of building it themselves!!!!!

Last night on my home system I was playing around looking to see if I could find a quality setting.  All of a sudden while in the New Blue Title 2.0 interface the New Blue Application Manager popped up saying there is an update.  I saw a 2.1 something version number in the window so I figured that was the update to my current 2.x version.  I hit the update button and a download button appeared.  I hit download but there was no progress bar or any kind of download dialogue window popping up so I had no clue if I had in fact updated or done anything.

I quit out of new blue and then relaunched hitting the New Blue Interface button in the effects window.  When it opened up I clicked on the about New Blue and it said I had New Blue ver. 4.xxxxx of some sort.  

My understanding is with my perpetual license dongle system I can run New Blue V 2,0, I forget what the specifics are regarding New Blue V 2.5.  At any rate now in the Avid effects window the New Blue title still says Titler Pro 2 at the top of the effects window above the "Launch User Interface" button.  So what version am I running now?  It would seem I upgraded to Ver. 4 without realizing it but that is not part of my Avid license right?  I'm wondering if this update Version number is not really an indication of the master version of 2.0 but more like a build version.  I'm worried that if it's a newer version that isn't part of my avid license will it time out and am I in some kind of a trial period after downloading the update.

On my work system which is identical for the most part except it's Avid 8.5.2 and my home is Avid 8.5.3 I have not updated anything and I don't even see the ability to check for updates in the New Blue Titler menu bar.  Also when I check the "About New Blur" info it shows similar copyright dates to my home system of 2009-2015 but there is no version number only a "Build 160404" number.

Anybody from New Blue out there that can clarify what is going on with the upgrade I clicked on?  Did I upgrade to a version that I will have to pay extra for?  So far there have been no trial period prompts or anything to indicate I've upgraded to a New Blue Version that is not compatible but the upgrade dialogue and download process wasn't very transparent in it's process.  I hit download but was never instructed to install anything which leaves me wondering if the New Blue Application Manager just does the upgrade install in the background like Adobe's CC App manager does.  At least with Adobe you can see an indication that the App is installed etc…  Very confusing process, at least to me.

[Avid-L2] Avid Upgrade into 8.5 range?

 

Hey all.

Currently our office is working off MC 7.0.4.4 on OSX 10.10.3 and we've got to move up to 8.5+ due to client needs. Any thoughts on the most stable version that works with Blackmagic Ultrastudio Express?

Thanks

You can usually select USB sources if you disable the video hardware (with the little gear icon on the timeline window). I don't know why it is unavailable when the hardware is active, though.

[Avid-L2] Re: Does dragging sequence from Interplay to Avid Bin copy it?

 

Interplay has always worked this way and this is very powerful, but can be very dangerous.


It would probably be a better default workflow for dragging a sequence from Interplay window to be a copy.

As stated below you have to copy the sequence - either by control dragging, by duplicating within a bin & deleting original (it is still safe in interplay) or by dragging to source monitor and cutting into new sequence (I think you still lose sequence audio track effects that way).

If multiple editors drag the sequence to their project, make changes & check in to Interplay then whoever checked the sequence in last wins. 

Each editor will be oblivious - their version of the sequence remains unchanged in their project unless they 'update' their version of the sequence from Interplay - at which point they will lose all their changes and get the last 'checked in' version.

In Interplay Access you can see who has checked in the different versions and 'roll back' to an earlier version.
