    Edit 1080/50P video

    Hi,

    as recently sony and canon are starting to sell camera with resolution of 1920x1080/50P my question is: can Media composer edit this files? if yes from which version?

     

    regards

    Media Composer is aimed squarely at producing outputs for Broadcast TV.

    There's no broadcasters transmitting 50P currently so it's not supported with MC currently.

    It's also why MC can't output anything bigger than HD resolutions. No 2K or 4K support because it's not a broadcast format (yet)

    Just to clarify Pat's answer a bit - Avid does have very clealy established workflows for 2K and 4K - it just doesn't edit them natively. Let's not forget Avid was originally designed for editing film projects.

    You can edit 1080P50 footage in Avid but only in a 1080i50 or 1080p25 project. You can get Avid to interpret these clips as 25P and hence get a 50% slowmotion end result.

    If you want a final product in 1080P50 (for what purpose I can't imagine, it would be a very "video" look) then Avid is probably not the right tool for the job. Peter Jackson did shoot the Hobbit in 48P and 3D and that was cut and conformed on Avid but of course using higher end tools as well. Plus at least most of the critics I read preferred the 24P version (not to mention wanting the movie sliced in half!). I can't tell you what workflow Jackson used but it probably was similar to 2K and 4K workflows. This article touches on it.

    Can we go back to the way audio nodes used to be selected? Please? ie if you have audio nodes at the same time on selected tracks; then selecting 1 audio node selects them all at that time. Having to shift select nodes or add an in and out is time consuming and counter productive. At least make it an option.

    Re: Edit 1080/50P video

    Avids only 2K 4K workflow I know of is using DS which will do 2K and even 4K

    But DS isn't MC.

    There are some workarounds to get 50P content in but you end up slowmo footage (and that's what a lot of folk use 50P for)

    But if you intent to shoot 1080 50P and edit it to produce a 1080 50P output or greater res then I'd suggest MC isn't the tool. Your timecodes will all go wrong if you try and go that route.

    True but you can still cut on MC (which most people do) and conform on DS or even other systems. Framerate is a different beast. We're both saying the same thing - MC is currently not the right tool for the job.

    Re: Edit 1080/50P video

    Hope its ok to revive an old thread, but shot some 1080/50P video on my Sony Nex 6 while trekking in Nepal.

    Have discovered that was a mistake with AVID 6 im using, so using Squeeze to convert it to 1080/25P

    Is this the simplest workflow or should I being doing something different.

    Im only a hobby shooter, so while this seems to work ok, any thoughts would be appreciated.

     

    Thanks

    Re: Edit 1080/50P video

    Does it work if you just AMA it into a 1080p25 project?  I've done similar with 1080p59.94 footage, in a 1080p29.97 project.  You could then transcode as needed, and it should create 1080p25 Avid media for you.

    This started to work with Avid 7, for Avid 6 other type of workflows are needed.

    To the previous poster, what other apps are installed on your system.

    edited ... just read that post  ok, Squeeze will do well, if you aren´t satisfied with the results play some with the settings
