    Adapters icons & render needed on "regular" clips ?

    I have a UHD project in 23.976. My clips have been transcoded to MXF using the project profile. But when I create a sequence, all of my clips still have an “S”, “C” or “SC” adapter icon on top… And if doing an expert render, it’s suggesting I render every single clip, even without CC or effect. 

    The source clips are the same resolution & frame rates.  No frame flex. 

    I’ve tried “Remove all color adapter” and “refresh sequence” but it does not change anything.

    JPBU:

    Can you post a screen grab of your transcode settings?  They can be confusing to get right.  And right can be different depending on what you are really doing.

    Of course. Here is the transcode window, the project settings tab, and a samble of a timeline (with two frame rate in this case, I know):  https://imgur.com/a/jVA82qC

     

    Thank you

    Re: Adapters icons & render needed on "regular" clips ?

    Ok, I can help.

    About the S iscon.  S is for Size.  Your sequence is 3840x2160.  Your source clips are 4096x2160.  So Avid is putting a Frameflex on to allow you to manipulate the image.

    If you do not want to do that, and let's say you want to crop the image to 3840x2160 when you transcode, you need to adjust the settings on the clips before transcoding.  Right click on a Linked clip and at the top of the next menu you will see Source Settings.  Click on that, go to the Frameflex tab, choose how you want the image to look (this can be a bit confusing - read the manual), press Apply.  You can do a group with one setting if needed.

    Once that is set, back on the transcode page, check the FrameFlex box to the right of Apply Source Transformations.  When you then transcode the image will become the dimension of your sequence (3840x2160) with image permantly cropped (assuming that was your choice in Source Settings).  There should not be a S on these clips.

    About the C.  That is very similar to the S.  C is color transformation.  You need to inspect the Color tab under Source Settings on the linked clips in question. If you choose to "burn" this color into the transcode, check the Color box under Apply Source Transformations on the transcode page. Once again, read the manual as to how the color transformations work.

    I wrote this from memory - not in front of a system.  But this is the gist of it.

    Does that help?
