Hi Everyone FCP version 5.0.2, Mac OSX 10.4.2 I have a client who has shot their footage on Panasonic Varicam DVCPro, 720p 25fps. Also some of the footage is shot on HDV. This project is not going to be onlined therefore they would like best possible picture quality possible. If in Avid they were going to select 2:1 res) I use Blackmagic Declink Capture card and normally for offline I use Blackmagic DV preset.I have xserve raid with 2tb stoarage which I dont think dont think will be sufficient to do it in 8bit or 10bit considering I might have 30 hours worht of footage. Is there a capture setting that is higher quality than DV that wouldn't require too much drive space.?
Any help is very much appreciated. Thanks Julie. Mixing different footage on a timeline is a BAD idea. A proven workflow is to capture the DVCproHD footage across firewire using the DVCproHD set up then capture the HDV footage using the DVCProHD codec but capturing over analogue component in via a card like the Decklink HD Pro or Kona LH from an HDV deck with component outs. That way you don't mx codecs, stay HD and don't have to faff about with the HDV intermediates etc. Do you have an HD card? I assume you do because you need to monitor it, right?
Hello, I found this storage calculator which is quite handy. Scroll down the download page to the storage calculator DVCPRO HD is only 14.5 MByets/second. 30 hours of DVCPRO HD is only 1.57 TB. This is actually about half the size of a Digibeta uncompressed. You didn't say how many hours of HDV you had but it is only 3.32MBytes/second or 12 GB/Hour which is actually slightly smaller than DV files. So why go small picture when HD is really here!
You should get an HD Monitor but you can still downconvert in real time and view analog. Good Luck, Tim.
AMD's graphics label ATI tonight claimed to set a new benchmark for graphics with the Radeon HD 5800 series. The new video hardware is theoretically twice as fast as the 4870 and has an extremely large set of 1,600 stream (visual effect) cores - enough to calculate 2.72 teraflops per second. Besides handling twice as many rendering tasks at once, the 5800 is also running a sixth-generation engine that shades and tessellates geometry more quickly, more GDDR5 memory bandwidth (150Gbps), and much improved techniques for antialiasing and anisotropic texture filtering.
Apple on Tuesday released iTunes 9.01 83MB, an update to media management software. Version 9.01 of iTunes, posted on Tuesday, provides a number of fixes, including issues browsing the iTunes Store, a performance issue where iTunes may become unresponsive, and fixes for unexpected quits, syncing Podcasts in playlists, and sorting albums with multiple discs. Apple also said that it addresses an issue with the Zoom button not switching to Mini Player, improves application syncing for iPod touch and iPhone. The company also said that its Genius feature has been updated to now automatically updated to show Genius Mixes. A prematurely released copy of Intel's plans for a Wednesday keynote has surfaced a day in advance and has provided details of the company's plans for the near future. The release obtained by ZDNet has Intel executive VP Sean Maloney revealing that the company has started shipping its many-cored Larrabee graphics chip to developers ahead of a full release and demonstrating what it can do in real-time. The demo should show a custom build of the online shooter Enemy Territory: Quake Wars running with raytraced lighting, a feat which is technically difficult for any graphics hardware as it calculates the path of each ray of light rather than making 'shortcut' calculations.

How to Fill Out PDF Forms and Documents on Mac May 19, 2017 - 6 Comments For many computer users, filling out PDF forms and PDF documents is a routine occurrence, and the Mac Preview app allows you to easily and quickly fill in a PDF file. Get serious with Numbers, Apple's powerful spreadsheet for the Mac! Apple's Numbers has become a grown-up spreadsheet (and it's free on every Mac sold since October 2013!), but many of us still haven't learned even the basics, much less been able to take advantage of its surprisingly deep collection of features. Numbers supports the Excel spreadsheets (.xlsx), but converting PDF to Numbers could be hard to do if you don't have the right software. Now you can convert PDF to Numbers using some suitable 3rd party software like iSkysoft PDF Converter for Mac.
MOST Training & Consulting has released Mac HelpMate version 3, an update to the Mac OS X remote support software. The software has automatic screen sharing launch support and a dashboard widget for launching a help session. Mac HelpMate has configurable proactive alerts, which allow IT managers to monitor any disk, both local or network on the network, e-mailing an alert when a disk falls below a certain percentage of free space and when kernel panics or S.M.A.R.T errors occur or a Time Machine backup fails. Apple will open its 270th store this weekend, launching the Promenade Temecula Apple Store Saturday, September 26. The store, located at 40820 Winchester Road, Temecula, CA 92591 in the Promenade Temecula mall, will open at 10:00 a.m. The store will offer the Apple standards - Apple products like the iPhone, iMac and MacBooks, and Genius Bar face to face support.
Hands-on workshops will be available and the One to One program will be available. The store phone number will be (951) 326-2400.
Currently, no workshops have been scheduled in the first week of operation. Hours will run 10:00 a.m. Mon-Sat, with Sunday hours of 11:00 a.m. The French National Assembly today passed its controversial anti-piracy law by a ratio of 258 for and 131 against. Locally referred to as Hadopi, the measure will give users allegedly caught pirating media two warnings followed by punishment from a judge that could include either a ban on Internet access, fines as high as 300,000 Euros ($443,500) or up to a two-year prison term. Those who unintentionally allow others to use their connection for piracy, such as by running an insecure Wi-Fi hotspot, could face a temporary one-month ban or else as much as a 1,500 Euro ($2,218) fine. Alienware announcements slated for Wednesday and teased in recent days should include sweeping updates to three of its core product lines, a last-minute leak today shows.
The company plans to unveil a redone m15x gaming notebook and is said by Engadget to be reworking both the Area-51 and Aurora gaming towers as well as their high-end ALX variants. Actual specs are unknown but are likely to involve revamped AMD, Intel and NVIDIA hardware, such as Intel's mobile Core i7 quad-core and new Radeon HD 5800 graphics. Sega has inadvertently left an SCEA meeting document (since pulled) on its server that appears to confirm major details of Sony's future PlayStation 3 plans. The notes appear to put the PS3 motion controller on store shelves in Japan for March, narrowing down the official spring launch window to the very early part of the season. Sony also expects to sell between four to five million of the peripheral and is helping game developers like Sega adapt their titles to support it; a 2012 London Olympics game and a Virtua Tennis port or sequel are labeled as candidates. Korea's UMID will soon release the successor to its mBook M1 UMPC simply known as the mBook M2.
Changes include a new exterior with a wider opening angle, a conventional USB port instead of needing a dongle, and a new VGA video output. There is also a new optical mouse integrated into the screen frame, while RAM has been doubled to 1GB.
Processors are also different, with the standard 1.2GHz Intel Atom slightly slower than the outgoing model's 1.33GHz Atom, while the optional CPU is faster, at 1.6GHz. Samsung this morning unveiled a pair of components that could give smartphones 1080p video playback and capture. The S5PC110 (not pictured) is based on ARM's faster Cortex-A8 architecture but can run at 1GHz even in the tight space of a smartphone; the feat is achieved through a 45 nanometer manufacturing process that keeps it relatively cool and power-efficient. Running it past even the 833MHz of earlier chips lets it decode and record 1080p video at a full 30 frames per second, including with HDMI 1.3 output of the image at full resolution.
Cirrus creates Lightning-headphone dev kit Apple supplier Cirrus Logic has introduced a MFi-compliant new development kit for companies interested in using Cirrus' chips to create Lightning-based headphones, which - regardless of whether rumors about Apple dropping the analog headphone jack in its iPhone this fall - can offer advantages to music-loving iOS device users. The kit mentions some of the advantages of an all-digital headset or headphone connector, including higher-bitrate support, a more customizable experience, and support for power and data transfer into headphone hardware. Several companies already make Lightning headphones, and Apple has supported the concept since June 2014. The Apple Store app for iPhone, which periodically rewards users with free app gifts, is now offering the iPhone 'Pocket' version of drawing app Procreate for those who have the free Apple Store app until July 28.

The move is slightly unusual in that, while retail employees have previously been used to test pre-release versions of OS X and iOS, this marks the first time they've been included in the otherwise developer-only watchOS betas. The company is said to have gone to great lengths to modify the activity tracker for wheelchair users, including changing the 'time to stand' notification to 'time to roll' and including two wheelchair-centric workout apps. Twitter stickers slowly roll out to users Twitter has introduced 'stickers,' allowing users to add extra graphical elements to their photos before uploading them to the micro-blogging service. A library of hundreds of accessories, props, and emoji will be available to use as stickers, which can be resized, rotated, and placed anywhere on the photograph. Images with stickers will also become searchable with viewers able to select a sticker to see how others use the same graphic in their own posts. Twitter advises stickers will be rolling out to users over the next few weeks, and will work on both the mobile apps and through the browser.
