Uncompressed video

Need help here. I recently purchase used Kona SD card for editing in uncompressed video. Question if I capture footage via firewire can I still edit in uncompressed timeline? I guess my question is will it go from compressed to uncompressed? Also in order to edit with an NTSC monitor do i need the AJA D5D converter? Please help newbie to uncompressed world. I do not have RAID setup yet but I read where you can edit with Kona JPEG compression with a single drive.

If you put DV footage in an uncompressed SD timeline then FCP will convert it, but you will probably have to render every frame before it will play back. Mixing formats on the fly is not a strength of FCP.

P.S. I don't know anything about the AJA converter.

Yes, if you're editing in the same timebase then you should be able to just copy and paste the clips. You might want to check on what, if any, distort settings FCP applies to the DV clips to compensate for the extra 6 lines of resolution in the uncompressed sequences.

Uhm...if you captured using the Kona card, then it IS uncompressed. The beauty of the Kona is that is captures uncompressed video over firewire.

Did you not get any documentation with this? It sounds like you don't really know how this works.

As stated in above post, footage was not captured via Kona SD, instead I captured via firewire from DV. I think you are referring to AJA IO that has firewire, this is Kona SD card and it does not have firewire. I just wanted to know if captured from DV will it uncompress on timeline or will I have to capture from SDI but I think Zach cleared that up for me.

What I want to know is "why?". Are you connecting a DV to deck to the Kona over SDI? Are you mastering to DigiBeta?

If you're not, you may as well have stayed in a DV timeline, only perhaps making an uncompressed master on disc for DVD authoring, but that doesn't need a kona card.

I have not connected a dv desk to Kona SD. I had some footage that was already capture from a dv deck and wanted to know if it will uncompress on the timeline.
