    Editrate does not match tc editrate

    Hi, This is an annoying problem that i thought had gone away.

    MC 3.1.3    os 10.5.5    qt 7.5.5

    I have set up a 25p project and trying to capture from 25frame minidv via firewire sony hvr-m15ap direct to mac (mojoDX)

    What appears to be happening is the capture tool is expecting 30 frames even though the project is 25 (i can see this from the timecode in logging mode). If i log the clip, i get this error - Exception: SMReturnTapeMobOffset: sourceMob editrate (25) does not match tc editrate (30). If i record from in it can't find pre roll, if i crash record it comes up with another error.

    Previously i overcame this by switching project formats back and forth and restarting a few times but it was completely random. So i managed to capture 5 rolls in this project already at 25 frames.

    Is there somewhere i can switch the framerate that capture is expecting? The footage already in seems to edit fine. Any ideas would be much appreciated. In the meantime i will try digitizing in another avid.

    Cheers, Sam Brunette.

    Re: Editrate does not match tc editrate

    Update- This seems to be a problem with the machine template setup.

    Previously was set to Generic Basic DVDevice-PAL, just changed it to Generic DVDevice-PAL and now seems to work.

    Although the Auto-configure option seems to reset to the Basic DV PAL setup which thinks it's NTSC?? Another thing to put on my bug list i guess.
