Avid Liquid 7.2 - Great News!

Hi all,
Avid Liquid are shipping 7.2 patch very soon (hopefully later today!). The good news is several progressive support for different camcorders like:
Supports HDV 720p/50 for JVC, XReceive imports for Panasonic P2 DVCPRO, Native capture for Canon XL H1: 1080/24F, 1080/25F og 1080/30F.

I think this is very good news for us who are using this formats :-)




Excerpt from the original message at the Avid Liquid Forum (confirmed by the Avid reps in Norway in a email from NAB):

New Functions in Version 7.2

24p: Capture, editing and output (IEEE 1394, JVC devices)
24p workflows from capture to output to tape (IEEE 1394) are supported, if the source material is supplied and/or recorded by JVC devices (camcorder, recorder).


Support for DVCPRO HD (XReceive P2)
1080/50i, 1080/24p and 1080/60i, 1080/30p are supported via XReceive from P2; Timeline editing is possible as well.


Canon XL H1
Capture: 1080/24F, 25F and 30F, 1080/50i and 60i formats are supported; also 4 channel audio. Record to tape: 1080/50i and 60i, Audio: 2 channels. (24F = 23.98 fps.).


RS 232 to RS 422 cables and adapters
Liquid 7.2 supports these commonly available cables/adapters (widely known as “Rosetta Stone” cables; sometimes equipped with voltage conversion) to remote control professional VTRs. You may also use Avid MediaLog cables.

Yes indeed. Great news for expanded camera support (Canon 24F i/o anybody?) and the HVX200.

Patch is now available it appears ...

http://www.avid.com/onlineSupport/br...ID=405&browse=

I do have a really dumb question though. The answer to this should be obvious but given we are talking about Avid here, who seem to be masters at not telling you everything, I thought I would see if we can get a very clear answer.

Does anyone know if the 7.2 upgrade will capture 24P and 30P footage from a Canon XL2? I know it says it will from an XL-H1, but it doesn't say that it will capture all Canon 24P footage!

I've read the pdf for the upgrade, but it doesn't say conclusively either.

Thanks,

Tim Hodgson

Tim, the short answer is no. No DV 24p streams, only HDV. The line has been drawn it seems. If you're working in DV you'll have to find another solution. If you're working in HDV (any variant including XDCamHD) then Liquid is Avids only native editor with complete workflow.

Sorry but no DV24p

I loaded it up the other night and so far things are looking good for the update. Solved a few problems and improved performance of the rendering engine a lot. I'm quite pleased in this area.

I was disappointed that there was no mention about 24p with the V1. I'm going to shoot some to see what happens but I suspect its not going to work. Liquid 7.1 didn't handle 30p correctly either. I DO hope this is fixed.

Also for the Sony XDCamHD group, Liquid offers proxy editing. The only NLE to do it AFAIK.

Liquid is currently the only application to directly integrate, and support XDCAM proxy files and metadata. Footage can be logged in proxy format in short periods of time and offline editing can begin. As the user edits, Liquid will automatically up the footage to its original format, or, the user can manually select which clips to be up-converted.
