GL2, sync problem revisited

I've read through the previous thread on audio synch issues with Canon cameras but am still confused about a few things.

1) Does the problem still occur with the GL2?

2) Is it a problem with the code on the tape or would capturing via a Sony camcorder take care of the problem?

Thanks.

Jeff Price

I've heard of problems either way. I don't have a definite answer for you. I capture to separate folders without a problem. It sounds like the problem was filling it to 90%. Disk Warrior has a good shot at fixing your drive. It is the best repair utility in my opinion.

The sync problem still occurs. I believe, and I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong that capturing with a different brand of deck will fix your problem. Some people have had success using capture now, but the only think that worked for me was captureing in imovie....

I've captured many hours of video from a GL2 to a Mac G4 and have never experienced an audio sync problem. I always capture my tapes straight through, 60 or 80 minutes worth of material and the audio lines up perfectly at the end.
FCP 3.02, OSX10.2.x, using internal and external devices as the capture disk.

Adobe Encore vs. DVD Studio Pro

Anyone had a hands-on look at Adobe Encore yet? How does it compare to DVD SP?

No comparison to DVD SP 2. By Apple dropping the price to $499 ($199 upgrade) and making the integration of FCP 4 and DVD SP 2 tighter, Mac users should look no further. It will not be initially available for Mac either. By the sounds of it you can kiss Cleaner goodbye also. Sorrenson may still prove useful for web work.

Strange that there are no samples of what they can do...just the one little animated logo.

20" cinema display

Right now I'm using a 17" Samsung 171s with my powermac. I was thinking of selling this monitor and getting a 20" apple cinema display. Anyone use this monitor? Any issues or any reason why I shouldn't make this move?

timeline on dual monitors?

I'm trying to find out if it is possible to stretch the timeline in FCP over 2 monitors? I know I could do this in premiere but am unsure about FCP. Another 17" would be cheaper than a 20" cinema :)

Problems with Certain Firewire Drives Resolved

I was having a minor, but incovenient, problem with Wiebetech's MicroGB+ drive until I installed OS 10.2.5 . The problem, in brief, was that video passing from the computer (ie. during Final Cut Pro sessions) to external monitors through the Firewire bus was being scrambled if my MicroGB+ drive was connected and powered-on, even if no footage was being read from that drive. This was quite a mystery to the Wiebetech folks who worked diligently with me over several months to track this down, with no success. Particularly mysterious was that my two other Wiebetech drives did not cause such a problem.

In the end, it seems that something in the 10.2.5 update provided the magic elixir to cure the problem.

Just thought I'd post this note in the event that there are silent sufferers out there.

This seems to be the most stable (read extremely stable) version of Jaguar to date. Some minor issues with Mail.app and printer sharing have been solved for me. I would recommend it to everyone. I have read of a few people with troubles (MacFix It, Apple Support Forums) but for the vast majority it cleans up many different minor issues.
