Having Editing Problems with Final Cut Pro Suite. I am a novice.

I am new at non-linear editing. I just purchase final cut pro 4 hd along with dvd studio pro 4. I need help bad. I have already create my project in fcp but I am having trouble importing and burning it to a dvd in studio pro. I tried to burn it but when it finished I got a lot of warning messages saying things like "folder not found." I hope that I am making sense. Can someone help me please!

Thank you
Clint

This has been discussed in several different forums in the past, so you may want to do a search. It sets a flag that tells the replicator to apply Macrovision on the DVD's that are replicated from your DLT tapes.

I've never none that, so I'm uncertain of the consequences. I would suspect that you might have audio sync issues at the least.

So all of the editing in FCP went fine? It was just when you tried to get the project into DVD SP for burning a DVD that you had a problem? What were you trying to do in DVD SP? Did you use menus, transitions, etc? Or were you just testing it out trying to burn your FCP movie?

That's pretty cheap for a useful plugin.

For those who don't want to spend money though, you could place the same clip on another video track, offset it by pixel (or two), and crop it down to 1 pixel dimensions.

Could work :)

cheers,
Peter

How did you export your final edited project for DVDSP? Did you use Compressor? Did you export a reference movie, did you export a quicktime movie?

compressor issue

FPC 4.5
Comp 1.21
upon export to Commpressor, it runs in FPC 4.5
not indepently as with FCP4.
this renders FCP 4.5 useless.
Is this a known bug?

Quicktime playing full screen on external powerbook monitor?

Hi all

Quick question, is it possible to get quicktime to play full-screen on an external monitor ie: connected to dvi output on side of powerbook.

I put the window onto the external monitor and then select full screen from the quicktime menu. I would expect it to full screen onto the monitor it's on but no, it full screens on the powerbook's own lcd screen.

Is there a way to do this?

thanks
Donie

Any Hard Drive Gurus here ?

I have a G5 Dual 2.0 with the stock 160 Gb HD. I just purchased a Seagate 200 Gb SATA HD (internal) and a Vantec Nexstar case with a western Digital 200 Gb IDe HD. I plan on using Carbon Copy cloner to clone the two internal drives to the external. My question is how do i use the Seagate as a media drive ? Do i install panther and make this drive bootable. All i want this drive for is media (final cut pro/express, pictures, music etc) What is the best way to set this drive up ? Do i install a copy of final cut on this drive or do i just store only media files ?

I believe most professional monitors support both PAL and NTSC,
but I could be wrong in that. Keep in mind that if you are using
a camera to output to this monitor you will need a PAL camera
in this case (or set your project properties to NTSC).

A burner inside a computer coupled with an authoring application
like DVD Studio Pro can make both NTSC and PAL DVD's.

The problems are in getting the footage in a computer (ie, an
NTSC camera will not process a PAL tape, but it sounds like you
already did this phase) and getting it out to a monitor. Other
than that, basically all video processing applications on a
computer can handle both formats.

I wouldn't go as far as to combine gamma correction with film look.
Gamma correction is another way to brighten or darken an image.

I cannot really answer your question as to why it would like better,
perhaps the darker tones supress some problems or the filter
does some other things as well, who knows.

It sounds like your DVD is actually NOT 16:9. The first clue might
be your export from Final Cut. Is your footage in final cut in true
16:9 or do you want to crop it to 16:9 on output (ie, the footage
was shot in 4:3)? Is your FCP project 16:9? When you output to
mpeg2 you should be able to indicate the footage is 16:9 to let
DVDSP know.

Then in DVDSP the project and everything else should be in 16:9
as well. Not 4:3 letterbox or Pan & Scan.

I don't have a Mac so I cannot tell you the exact workflow. But
your problem sounds like the "this is 16:9 footage flag" is NOT
enabled on the DVD.
