Re: nanoFlash for Playout - settings..?

Dear Jyrki,

Our File Converter works with Final Cut Pro files only at this time.

On other systems, playing out via HD-SDI, or even SD-SDI, to the nanoFlash is one way of accomplishing the task.

Of course, this requires your NLE to be equipped with a HD-SDI output port.

Re: nanoFlash for Playout - settings..?

Dear Dan

Thank you for the quick reply.
Please add an option for Premiere Pro to your File Converter, then.
Premiere has a long list of outputs to choose from, some of which should be suitable for conversion.

Any changes to this since the advent of FCP-X?

Ron

ps Merry Christmas to all

Re: nanoFlash for Playout - settings..?

I had a look on the CD Downloads page and "File Convertor" seems to have disappeared unless I'm looking in the wrong place,

Re: nanoFlash for Playout - settings..?

I also note from elsewhere that this good only for 50Mbps recordings, whereas mine are 100Mbps,

Re: nanoFlash for Playout - settings..?

I've installed the File Converter, converted my movie into XDCAM 4:2:2 format, connected a blank formatted CF card to my Desktop.

I have added my XDCAM movie as the source folder and added "/volumes/No Name/CLP" as the destination.

When I click "Convert" I get the message " Check the Logs in the destination folder".

I must be doing something wrong but what?

Ron

Re: nanoFlash for Playout - settings..?

Hello Ron,

Are you exporting out of Final Cut Pro 7 or Final Cut Pro X?

Also have you check the error Log to see what the Error is?

Or could you forward the error to me, and I can try to replicate the issue.

Re: nanoFlash for Playout - settings..?

Andy thanks,

Video out of FCP X, and I don't know how to find the "Error Log", let alone forward it. Your further advice will be welcome.

Another thing I noticed is that my 100Mbps .Mov video, when converted to XDCAM 4:2:2 was about half the file size. Is this because of some 50Mbps limiter on your File Converter?


At the end of the day I'm looking to be able to project ,via my 1080p projector, edited video as near as possible to the quality I get when connecting my nanoFlash, with unedited footage, to my 1080p monitor.

Investigating both Blu Ray and Flash devices via a Western Digital Media Player. Hope C.D. can come up trumps as potentially a very elegant solution,

Ron

Re: nanoFlash for Playout - settings..?

Andy,
Under "CLP" on the CF card I see "FileConvertorLog.txt" when I open this I see **NEXT LOG** and then a string, 6 , of "Unknown error : - 11

** NEXT LOG**


and so on, Ron

Re: nanoFlash for Playout - settings..?

Re-formatted the card and tried again . Seems the six messages I referred to above each correspond to a click on the "CONVERT" button,
