Background

Avid-L was established in 1994 at Calvin College by Steven Koster.
It was created to be a forum for Avid users to meet, discuss, and share
information.

Avid-L quickly grew into the premiere on-line users group for
professional film and video editors. It was one of the earliest examples

of an Internet community, allowing hundreds of editors worldwide to
share their experiences and expertise with their peers. There was no
better place for a professional Avid editor to get such wealth of
informed professional advice.

At various times, individual subscribers volunteered services to the
group. Searchable archives were maintained by Germany's Berlin Users
Group as well as the UIUC. A tips & tricks list was posted by Andy
Birkhead of Innovative Edit. Wes Plate, a longtime contributor, not only

shared key techniques on his Web site, he also created a photo gallery
for members' portraits.

In 1997, several subscribers began a tradition of meeting in person at
the NAB trade show in Las Vegas. The first gatherings were organized by Jaime Fowler. In 1999,
Avid Technology itself began sponsoring these gatherings as an exclusive reception and seminar for Avid-L members only. In 2002, this changed to the "Avid Users Group" meeting.

By 1999, Avid-L boasted over 1600 subscribers, exhibiting a true
international scope with over 300 international members. The community
included participants from a wide variety of well-known corporate
organizations in broadcasting, technical, and content creation fields,
as well as and multiple local TV stations, colleges, and universities.

In 2000, Avid-L joined AvidProNet.com, and then, in 2002, was integrated
Into Avid.com.

In 2005 Due to problems with signal to noise ratio and abusive posters, the Avid-L2 was formed. A year later the Avid-L was discontinued by Avid.

At the middle of 2006, the L2 has around 1100 members, with plenty of "lurker only" members who simply use the web version of the list. The L2 is spam-free, by moderation and with Yahoo's tools and will remain that way. The integrated archives with both old L and L2 posts came on line recently as well at the University of Illinois. That can be found at http://archives.itg.uiuc.edu/avid/.

Cross-posting to the FCP-L is welcome, tho reply's will not flow back to either list necessarily- check your own email reply preferences. The Final Cut list is found at: http://movies.groups.yahoo.com/group/FinalCutPro-L

Welcome, and Enjoy!

Re: [Avid-L2] Re: Input Device in DPX File Header?

 

It's the device that created the file.

 

If it was an R&S Clipster it would say that in there. If it was an R&S Venice it would say that there. It requires the manufacturer to bother to write the data.

 

Why are you interested?

found this info and I'm almost sorry I asked in the first place.  I still don't see what the purpose of input device is.

Here's what I found on a google:

Orientation Header

The last of the generic headers is the orientation header. Information in this header describes the position of the image on the display and also contains some additional information on the source of the image data.

This header is 256 bytes in length and has the following format:

typedef struct _GenericOrientationHeader
{
        DWORD  XOffset;             /* X offset */
        DWORD  YOffset;             /* Y offset */
        SINGLE XCenter;             /* X center */
        SINGLE YCenter;             /* Y center */
        DWORD  XOriginalSize;       /* X original size */
        DWORD  YOriginalSize;       /* Y original size */
        char   FileName[100];       /* Source image file name */
        char   TimeDate[24];        /* Source image date and time */
        char   InputName[32];       /* Input device name */
        char   InputSN[32];         /* Input device serial number */
        WORD   Border[4];           /* Border validity (XL, XR, YT, YB) */
        DWORD  AspectRatio[2];      /* Pixel aspect ratio (H:V) */
        BYTE   Reserved[28];        /* Reserved field used for padding */
} GENERICORIENTATIONHEADER;

XOffset and YOffset indicate the offset of the first pixel in the stored image from the first pixel in the original image. If the two images are not offset, then the values of these fields will be 0.

XCenter and YCenter are floating-point values indicating the X and Y coordinates of the center of the image.

XOriginalSize and YOriginalSize indicate the width and height, respectively, of the original image, in pixels per line and lines per image.

FileName is the name of the source image from which the image was processed or extracted.

TimeDate is a 24-byte field containing a time and date stamp of when the source image was created. This stamp is a string in the form YYYY:MM:DD:HH:MM:SS:LTZ.

InputName is a 32-byte ASCII string declaring the name of the input device.

InputSN is a 32-byte ASCII string declaring the serial number of the input device.

Border is a set of four values that describe the region of the image eroded due to edge-sensitive filter processing. These values are, in order: X left, X right, Y top, and Y bottom. Values of 0, 0, 0, 0 indicate no border and therefore no erosion.

AspectRatio is the pixel aspect ratio described as a horizontal value (AspectRatio[0]) divided by a vertical value (AspectRatio[1]).

Reserved is a 28-byte field used to pad the header out to 256 bytes in length. Future versions of the DPX format may support additional fields in this area.

I did find in photoshop the file info which lists all kinds of file metadata but I don't see anything listed as "input device"  Perhaps I'm just looking in the wrong place.  It's part of the header data.  I think of that is something like the vertical interval data in a video signal but I know it's different.  So what is a dpx input device?

Re: [Avid-L2] Frame Flex

 

Roger,

Thank you for the reply.  I am not getting "real time" updates when I alter the FF parameters in the effect editor.  Are you able to see both the clip you are matching as well as the high res ff clip at the same time?

Thank you.

Re: [Avid-L2] Frame Flex

 

There is a difference between using FF in Source Settings (to make a basic correction) and using FF in a sequence. Drop your Hi-Res clip onto V2 above your scaled clip and drop on a Superimpose effect. Manipulate the FF parameters in the Effect Editor. When done, remove the Superimpose. I hope you don't have too many of these to fix.

Subject: [Avid-L2] Frame Flex

 
Hi All,

I have a project finishing in 1920x1080 23.98 on Avid.

Some source material was shot 2880 x 1620.

During edit, dalies were made @ 1920x1080 (scaled to fit) and zooms and repos were done with resize or 3d warp avid effects.

I would like to have access to all of the extra pixels available in the original 2.8k footage.  I have gotten as far as re-linking the clips to the 2.8k media in my 1920x1080 avid project.  This of course scales down the 2.8k with frame flex (no quality loss).  I know i can't just throw a 3DW or resize on top of that to emulate a push in, because I would now sacrifice resolution when pushing into these shots.

My question is:  How do I create a push in at maximum resolution using all source pixels while still working an Avid workflow?

Also, Is there a way to manipulate the frame flex tools while simultaneously superimposing my editorial reference to create a match.  Instead, the frame flex effect only allows me to see the 2.8k clip solo.  This makes pixel for pixel matching to a reference very cumbersome and inefficient.  Why not offer some sort of transparency tools?

Anybody have a work around?

Thanks!
