If ever you are right about womble accepting mjpeg the loop is indeed complete. I will try that for sure.

It's a simple, yet slightly pricey, way to get it back to the HD10.

Better than 5k "getting to DVHS only" solution. Thanks for the tip, I thought womble only accepted MPEG2 files...

This is what Mullen is saying we'll need to get back to the camera with HDV Cinema.

Well... I guess I should have tried it anyway without listening just in case it worked :)

I posted this originally at camcorderinfo.com, then reposted here on a different thread, Heath suggested that I post it on this thread, sorry about all the redundancy.

Project X is an alternative for demuxing transport streams, it also will convert program streams to transport streams, the hurdle right now seems to be the limitation on MPEG2 encoders for the Mac, Compressor and Quicktime mpeg2 encoders both limit the video resolution to 720x480

Project X compiled on 10.2.7 but started generating compile errors with
10.2.8, some error about "claims 0 max advance but is fixed-pitch", this seems to be a known bug which is affecting many different Java apps.
Alfred Tsang who I work with got it to compile by:
Downloading the zip file to the Desktop
Double clicking on the file to unzip it using stuffit expander
You should have a folder called ProjectX_Source open that folder and
go into the src folder and edit the folliowng line in X.java (using TextEdit)
Object[] fonts = (Object[])GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment().getAvailableFontFamilyNames();

change it to:


//Object[] fonts = (Object[])GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment().getAvailableFontFamilyNames();
String[] fonts = new String[1];
fonts[0] = "SansSerif";

This will affect a portion of the program that allows for conversion of captioning, which I am not using anyway.

Open a Terminal window (located in Applications/Utilities)
type
cd Desktop
cd ProjectX_Source
cd src
javac [-O] *.java
jar cfvm X.jar MANIFEST.MF *.class

if all goes well you will have a file called X.jar in the src folder, double clicking on it will launch the application
There will be a bunch of tabs, click on the files tab and drag the m2t file created form DVHSCap into the window.
Click on the audio tab and Check "decode MPEG Layer to PCM" and "add RIFF(RIFX) header to PCM (.wav)"
click on "main" and the use the "Go!" button.
The application is fast, faster than realtime on a G5. (even faster if you don't convert the audio to wav)
it will produce a mpv file and a .wav file both which FCP understand.
I have needed to match the duration of the two files some times to fix synch issues

I hope this works for all who try it, let me know if anyone tries to convert mpv's back to a transport stream

Thanks go to Arick Chang who discovered Project_X on the web and showed me how to use it.

Oh, and you shouldn't have to download the SDK. javac and jar come with OSX (I have not tried any of this on OS9)

Paul, is it possible you could post the compiled program somewhere to save us all having to go through the compilation process, or forward it by email to us? Or maybe DVinfo.net could host it for people to access if this is allowed?

Thanks

Question about Wommble. What OS does it require? I've got an older copy of Virtual PC with WIN95 on it.

Thanks,

JT

Jeremiah,
the Womble manual says it requires Windows 95,98 or NT with a 400mhz CPU or better for MPEG2. I've got it on windows XP and it seems to run ok, though I've got to say the editing methods it uses are just weird to me after FCP.

Chris,
could you please post when the ProjectX program is available for download, I'd really like to try it.

Thanks

Paul

I can't wait to try Project X! Thanks for offering to post it for us.

Hey everyone - I've got some HD10 footage that I would like to post. Is there anywhere I can, so people can download?

Thanks, Chris
