  • Re: No Option to Import P2 on Composer 4.0.2

    Everything should work just the same with AMA. In the old workflow you would import the P2 clips, then select them all and import the media, if you wanted to. With AMA it's essentially the same. Once you've got clips in a bin you can select them all and consolidate them to an Avid media folder. But you'll get a lot more meta-data from the

    That's all true, Kenton. For the sake of simplicity though, the easiest route should be to export a DV quicktime from Avid and take that straight to Roxio, which can then be used to author a DVD. Seems like Jene was thrown by all the preset export settings in Avid, so getting a good quality export is the first priority. I agree that a QTref to Sorenson

    cool. h.264 is a really good codec, as long as you do it at high enough quality. doing it low quality results in the messy pans you saw. if you want to use this, then in the export window choose "options", then click on the "format options" button, then video "Settings" and make sure the compressor quality is set to Best

    You can find out what the codec is by opening the quicktime in quicktime player and pressing ctrl+i. there you will get the information. one of the things about Avid codecs is they don't always play back cleanly in quicktime player. this doesn't mean there is anything wrong with the file - just that you will need to burn a dvd with it and look

  • Re: Exporting a quicktime.mov from Avid

    Hve you checked what codec you exported with? Sounds like it was a long GOP codec (mp4 or something) as that would explain things getting messy during pans across complex material. That would also explain the size of the file. If you export Same as source that should help, and the file will be larger accordingly. The colour being washed out usually

    Don't know what your workflow is, but you should give AMA a try before you switch back to the old system. It may not make too much difference for a P2 workflow, but there are a few things about it you may like (media you link directly to a P2 folder on your hard-drive doesn't lose it's connections and need to be re-imported when you restart

    other thing - what resolution was your video mixdown? was it across the entire project? if so you could duplicate your timeline (ctrl-d) and then delete all the tracks except for the mixdown. this would simplify things for you. may not make a difference, but might make it simpler for exporting. You could export "same as source" then, and the

    nightmare? well, 80 minutes is a fairly serious film, and if it has lots of effects then it's really going to push your system. i guess that's why there are still dedicated editors around, to look after all this stuff. that's another issue though. press "p" to get your percentage back. what codec did you choose for your export

    ok, so are you actually just planning to burn a data disk of the quicktime onto DVD? or are you making a video DVD that will play in a DVD player? which will involve some level of authoring, even if it is just Roxio transcoding the quicktime you give it to mpeg2 for the disk (and there may be some settings in Roxio you can set so the mpeg2 file is processed

  • Re: Exporting a quicktime.mov from Avid

    Ok, sounds like you may be having issues because of the different frame rates and also because it was shot progressive. The first thing to understand when making a DVD is that you often can't trust what you see on the compter screen, so you should always try and watch a test DVD on a TV. That generally applies to interlaced projects, but I'd
