Avid Liquid 7.0

Does anyone know if there is the 4 second problem with PC users using Avid Liquid? The four second loss at the beginning of each recording?

There is no such problem capturing HDV with Liquid. As far as I can tell, it works flawlessly. I've been using Liquid to conform EDLs for very involved timelines from Media Composer and Xpress Pro with no trouble whatsoever. I have also captured complete tapes straight into Liquid with no problems.

Second what Antony says. I'v been using Liquid for years in SD, now I have upgraded to Canon HV 10 and Canon XLH1 camcorders. I use the HV 10 as a deck. The capture is painlessly without any issues.

Note: the hardware requirement for HDV is higher than for SD footage. You should also download the SP1 patch for Liquid 7.

No problems with the Liquid system and ProHD. It's all predictable as if you're working with regular DV.

Stephen, do you know if Liquid also supports the XDcam HD Cams? (350)

Yes, I know for sure it does. AAMOF, I was working on XDCamHD just yesterday (35Mb & 25Mb)

I'll third that. Running 7.1 on MBP 2 and love it. I have simply stopped using FCP. I'm also confident Liquid will handle 720p60 when I get an HD250 in a few weeks.

Stephen, have you found any way to remove 2:3 pulldown on HDV video? Would like to useLiquid rather than Vegas for V1 24p.

Likewise, anyway to add 2:3 pull-down on export?

Liquid also flows nicely into the XP tools for making HD red laser DVDs for HD DVD players. It also will feed BD burning software including AC-3 audio.

I only wish Avid would confirm they are not planning to stop development. I've pushed them and they simply refuse to comment. They claim they never comment on future products. When I reminded them they have talked about Xpro features a year in advance, they just get pissed cause you've caught them in a lie.

I'm not saying they'll stop selling 7.1, but there's a ton of work that needs to be done for 7.2 let alone 7.5 or 8.0.
