    Avid for Liquid Users: Lesson 5 - Simple capture error

     The fifth in a series of tutorials created to assist Avid/Pinnacle Liquid users who are considering migrating to Media Composer.

    It is so easy to overlook this simple piece of information when trying to capture, in the beginning.

    Re: Avid for Liquid Users: Lesson 5 - Simple capture error

    I am trying to capture video with the audio into MC from a Panasonic DV Deck. When I go to select the Video and Audio Tracks in the capture tool it tells me that the Audio sample clock must be pulled down in order for the video and audio to be captured at the same time. I clicked on the pulldown tab and it said not supported.

    I am trying to capture 24p video format in NTSC

    Can you help me to see what I might be doing wrong>

    thanks

    Re: Avid for Liquid Users: Lesson 5 - Simple capture error

    Hi Douglas; I just a week ago installed MC4 (will do MC5 when I get my Win 7 64) and thanks to your tutorials, as well as some others from Avid, I am up and running. I didn't find the transition from LE 7.2 hard. In fact I found the workflow rather similar, except that the buttons are in different places.

    However, in reference to lesson 5 in your tutorials: "Simple capture error", I ran into an other problem which also can be called a simple user error:
    After having hocked up the cam to the PC's 1394 port, I could run the tape nicely and see the video in the record monitor.

    Hoever, when I tried the second time, the Capture Tool stated "No Deck" in the green timeline window! Leaving MC, and launcheing LE, the cam worked ok.

    Back in MC I looked around and found under Settings (Project window) > Deck configuration, there had appeared a second entry: "Firmware on No Port" and a Sony cam name in the ajacent box. I deleted this entry, and the cam worked ok. Where this entry came from I don't know because I was in this setting only once to map my Canon.
    I have a screen-shot of this, but don't know how to upload it to  this thread.

    Hope this helps somone in the future.

    Gerrit.

    Re: Avid for Liquid Users: Lesson 5 - Simple capture error

    I have am trying to capture using firewire directly to my sony laptop from a Sony pd150.

    The software reconizes the camera and allows me to play the video but when i attempt to capture i get the following error:

    You may not capture audio & video together unless the audio sample clock is pulled down.

    The tab for the clock is not active.  Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Re: Avid for Liquid Users: Lesson 5 - Simple capture error

    Hello Marc,

    This is something that I have never come across.
    So I have no idea at all what you need to do.

    The posts above this one mention a similar problem and the solution.
    Have you tried that?

    Otherwise keep your fingers crossed..... maybe someone with the answer will post their solution.

    Regards,
    Douglas

    Are you trying to capture in a 24p project?

    But you're using a Sony PD-150.  Does that record at 24p?  I can't recall, but I don't think it does.  So, if that's the case, then you're trying to capture non-24p footage into a 24p project type.

    What?

    You're not making a lot of sense.  This is an issue of frame rate.  You shot in either 30i or 25i (depending on where in the world you are) and are trying to capture it into a 24p project.  Audio Sample Clock Pulldown only matters in a 24p project. 

    Is there a specific reason why you're trying to capture this stuff into a 24p project?  Can you use a 30i or 25i project?

    changing the frame rate to  30I or 23.976  both work.  Can i change  the frame rate in a project that I have already created or do i have to start a new project.   Which of the 2 frame rates is preferable.   Sorry if these questions sound stupid but i am just geting started with avid (previous liquid user

    You'd have to start a new project. 

    Marc Eppler:

    That depends on how your footage was shot and how you're using it.  For example, if your footage is all SD 30i then it makes sense (to me) to create a 30i project.  If you footage is 24p, then it makes sense to start a 24p project.  But, as I said earlier, I don't think the PD150 shoots 24p.
