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!

We have several clients, both large and small, that use Premiere for long form/ shared environment. It has the second biggest market share in our experience.

In the local Orlando market, several of the affiliates use Premiere Pro. They have for a few years now. In one case, they do all the hard news editing on Avid NewsCutter systems with shared Avid storage. But everything else related to creative services - promos, web videos, social media, long form projects - all get cut in Premiere Pro at that station. Those rooms connect to a separate storage system. They used to be on FCP 7, but were always heavy After Effects users, so the shift to Premiere was a natural.

[Avid-L2] Re: Premiere-Plural Eyes To MC?

 

That would require Premiere to output an AAF that MC would need to import and then link to the Premiere media.
I'm pretty sure that won't work.

[Avid-L2] Interplay w/Airspeed

 

So Ive been trying to get Interplay Transfer to work with my airspeed. I'm running MC 5.5.2 with TM 2.4 (I also tried 2.2, and 2.7) but per the compatibility Matrix 2.4 seems the way to go. As far as the AS Goes, Flight plan works, Pilot works, FTP with the command line works....however I cannot get playback or ingest to work to save my life.


Sending to playback device I get: "Internal error in the DLL that sends media to the playback device: MSS DHM, Unsupported media format in composition: Avid DVC Pro 25"  The only media I have in there is an .mov file


Dragging from Fightplan (ingest) into the bin I  get "FTPControlCon: Cannot connect socket to IT-SARAHS:6530: Connection refused"  This sort of makes sense since the FTP default for TM appears to be 6534


Any ideas?

[Avid-L2] Premiere-Plural Eyes To MC?

 

I'm starting a movie that will shoot in a distant land. I'll stay in LA and cut it here as they send dailies. They're shooting Alexa ArriRAW 2K. The remote AE tells me he'd like to use PluralEyes and PremierePro to do the transcode and sync.

I've never received anything via this workflow. What happens? Can this PluralEyes/Premiere path result in files transcoded to DNxHD115 MXFs? Can it carry multiple tracks of 24bit sound? Is this workflow likely to result in a bunch of files that are then imported into MC using an EDL that contains all the relevant metadata?

Anyone out there in the braintrust do it this way? Any insight would be mightily appreciated.

Many thanks.

[Avid-L2] Re: Fw: New SEC Document(s) for Avid Technology, Inc.

 

With my very limited fiscal awareness it seems they were all selling shares and not acquiring.  I guess that's the way of the stock market world but what kind of message does it send when the CEO and others are dumping shares?  I'm not being sarcastic here as I'm sure this is typical CEO stock market behavior but it isn't very reassuring IMHO.
