  • Hitch w/ DV25 ingest via Host-1394

  • Closing Capture tool causes crash

    Hi We have an (intermittent) error that might be specific to our build, although it's hard to say as it only happens on a couple of machines. Essentially, closing the capture tool after recording a line of comm is enough to bring up the beachball of doom from which MC can't recover and a force...

  • Capture Tool toggle source icon

    Hi all, Just wondering if I could get confirmation from some other users. In the Media Composer manual, going back a few versions, the intructions for capturing from a non controllable device include Click the Toggle Source button in the Capture tool until the Deck Offline icon appears to disable the...

  • 4x3 archival footage in 1920x1080 project

    Hi all, I'm working in a 1080p 23.976 project that has a good amount of 4x3 29.97 archival footage from the early 90's. The issue I'm having is, when the 4x3 footage was captured from tape, the 4x3 footage became stretched to fill the 16x9 raster (no pillarbox). In order to avoid looking...

  • Capture Tool Crashing in MC8.5.1

    After getting all 31 stations up to 8.4.3, we bumped up to 8.5.1. While lots of small stuff got fixed (like the window focus problem when putting in markers) we immediately ran into issues when recording VO using the capture tool. So see below: - Capture tool crashes immediately when tracks are un-ganged...

  • Live capture on set using capture tool and Blackmagic UltraStudio Mini Recorder

    Has anyone done this? I have a fast-approaching shoot where I need to live-record an SDI feed out of video village and cut temp rushes so the director can see immediately if his fx shots are working etc. The production has previously used the UltraStudio Mini Recorder into Blackmagic Media Express and...

  • Captured audio linking to wrong MXF file

    I just finished a recording session with my narrator who laid down a scratch track for me. This was recorded via a Mackie, straight into the Avid using the capture tool. To my horror, upon playback of the file I discovered that the MXF had managed to wrap 2 different recording sessions together, "deleting"...

  • Blackmagic Ultrastudio Mini Recorder doesn't work w/ Avid MC 8

    Hey Guys, I've been testing out the Blackmagic Ultrastudio Mini Recorder with the idea of editing on set. However, there must be something that I'm missing, as it doesn't want to work with Avid. (I'm testing it out on Avid 8.1, MacBook Pro late 2012, retina, 2,3 GHz Intel Core i7, 8GB...
