  • Blue footage during playback.

    Usually, when loading or starting a new project, I have to go into Video Display settings and uncheck Dual Copy Engine (OpenCL) as I normally end up with footage that turns blue, and this fixes the issue. Today I loaded up my project, with this setting unchecked, and my footage turns blue during playback...

  • best transcoding options?

    A7sII clips - AMA linking from m.2 drive. Now I can edit and play clips 90% seemless in 4k on the timeline and edit real time in 4k, but sometimes it slows down a bit. My question is should I transcode all of these clips in LB and edit smooth as possible, and re transcode the master sequence in HQ once...

  • i9 vs Threadripper (Intel vs AMD) plus some test results

    Is anyone running Threadripper with Media Composer? I recently was able to run a transcode test with Media Composer 2018.3 on an i9-7900X processor, an i7 iMac 18,3, and a Threadripper 1950 using 4K UHD footage shot on a Cannon C300 Mark II transcoding it to DNX36. Results: iMac 1.1 x faster than real...

  • background transcoding MXF files vanish!

    Hi folks Hoping someone can suggest what has happened. I was transcoding a batch of rushes into Mac based MC v7.05. Most clips came in fine but some would not behave properly. I could view all clips using AMA but got "unknown format error" when editing some of them (Same camera, same cards...

  • Transcoding speed

    Hey there I have a question about usage of multi-core cpus in MC 8. I mainly edit Full HD and I just did the jump from an XW8600 to a Z840 (see specs). Coming from 8 cores going to 20 cores (40 with ht) and guess what - render time is almost the same. In task manager it seems as if only 1 core would...

  • 23.976 and 59.94 at the same time?

    Hi! I have a slow-mo question. I'm ingesting Sony XAVC Intra 4K footage that was supposed to be shot at 23.976, but after transcoding, I noticed that some footage was obviously slow motion, even though I never noticed any odd formats. Looking more closely at the master clips, I realized that although...

  • System spec for background transcoding

    What would be a good system to concurrently edit dnxhd media without pausing the background transcode of H264 files, I currently use a 4Ghz i7 iMac (2014) which is at full throttle when transcoding. I am thinking of getting a Mac Pro, to achieve the above, while editing simple picture and sound. What...

  • C500 documentary AVID workflow

    Hi avid fans, I am in the process of planning my workflow for a feature length doc, mostly shot on a Canon C500 at 1080p 23.97 MXF files. There is a ton of footage but drive space for editing is budgeted and not a concern. I have edited before with Canon C500 footage and have done so, on shorter projects...
