multi formats?

Hi guys,

may have been addressed, I did a search and nothing came up, can you shoot multiformats to the same CF card with the nano? EG shooting 720/50p and 720/25p or 1080i on the same card? Or do you format the card for one format type only?

Thanks

Adam

Dear Adam,

Yes, you can shoot any format that you want on one card.

However, since the nanoFlash and Flash XDR automatically advance to the next file on playback, if the next file is a seriously different format (and not just a different bit-rate or Long-GOP versus I-Frame Only), then the playback will glitch as the nanoFlash has to detect the different format, then adjust.

This glitch is minor, and does not affect the contents of the file, nor editing the file (Unless one wants to playback the files via HD -SDI or SD-SDI to another device. If this is your plan, then do not mix formats.

Adam, I thought I answered your question earlier. However, maybe it did not get through yet.

Multi format Playback

Hey Adam,

Just to Correct the nanoFlash will play multi formats on one card, but not consecutively, or in loop play, it will abort playback and display "Aborting playback different Format detected"

If you select individual files you can play them just fine, but not multi format and bit rate in a loop function
will not work. This is also true for mixing video format's 1080i60 / 1080i50 / 720p60 as well as file types .mov / .mxf / .mpg

Best Regards
