If you've registered the Pro version as perscribed you should have no problems. See if QT now shows the correct version (after entering your registration) by looking at QT's "About" information. Either way, don't sweat it.

I saw some impressive color correction Demos with FCP 3 when I
was at IBC this weekend. Now I'm trying hard to remeber if they
did what you wanted or not, or if it was one of pinnacle's
professional products. I do know that FCP 3 has some amazingly
power color correction tools. Try to learn as much as you can with
them and I'm sure you can do a lot more than you though. I do
believe FCP 3 CC supports color masking/selecting (ie, only effect
a particular color), so that should perhaps do what you want.....

Fiddle with it!

out of town, but solved

Hey!
thanks for the reply, but I might have solved it. i was out of town and ran into a buddy who said to just try a different set of rca cables and keep an eye on the automatic switch (d to a, etc) so i did that and it works. Basically with my set up, I just need to cycle the bridge through the three different positions (d to a, pass through, a to d) and then it works fine. Thanks for the reply and if you know a way to simply this process, I'm totally open to it!

On a side note, I tried my friends sony dvmc da2 and it works flawlessly with my set up because you don't have the auto switch on the bridge, so I might go to that just for convience.

Apple OS X 10.2.1 is available

OS X has been updated and FCP boot up was listed as an improvement with many others. Ken, some printing improvements are listed also. It is about a 17MB download and I had no problems with the install. I downloaded it here http://www.versiontracker.com/macosx/

Hey, Jeff. Downloaded and installed 10.2.1 on my Powerbook G4; all's fine so far. It fixed one minor annoyance.

Will try it out on my desktop in the morning. Oish, if only it would fix the printing on my HP G85xi I would again be a happy Mac'er. BTW, I tried Gimp-Print 4.2.1 but no luck. (It's a rather mystifying Unix printing driver/complex that loves Epson but disses most of the HP line.) Apparently version 4.2.2, also released this week, has made strides, although haven't tried it yet. One way or another I'm determined to get that brand new sucker to spit ink (intelligibly) again.

One more point of view.

I also had alot of trouble with the DV Bridge.

I called/emailed the Dazzle people when I purchased it and still haven't heard back. Going on 2 months now!

I returned it and for the same money got the Canopus ADVC-100 which is working great.

OT: OSX Icon question

Hi everyone,

I know this is off-topic, but you were all so great giving me advice when I was getting ready to purchase my Mac that I thought you could help me out with this.

Last night when I was attempting to install Palm Desktop on my new Power Mac (using OS X v. 10.1.5) I was prompted to restart the computer after installing the software. When I did this the computer booted back up in OS 9. After a little confusion I was able to restart into OS X.

But, when I did this all of the icons for any apps that run under Classic/OS 9 are gone....replaced by the generic Apple application icon (the piece of paper with the ruler/paintbrush/pencil forming an A.)

Any ideas on how to get the original icons back? You all seem pretty knowledgable about OS X, so I thought I'd throw it out there.

Thanks in advance! Still saving up my cash and looking forward to the big FCP purchase later this year!

You might want to put in you MacOS X install CD, reboot to it, and run Disk Utility. (It's under a menu, I think it's called 'Disk Utility', and you want to run 'Repair'.) You can't run Disk Utility from your boot drive, but it'll run off the CD. Back in the olden days the recommendation would have been to rebuild your desktop, but now that we're living in a MacOS X world it's your best bet to fix drive issues. (It shouldn't take very long, you'll probably want to run it on all your drives.) Might be a good idea to re-verify permissions, too.

Follow-up

Well, 10.2.1 didn't fix my printing problems. But it turns out that HP released the updated 10.2 drivers for the Officejet G series printers this week. So all's well again in my printing plant. Happy, happy, joy, joy.

Break out boxes

What are you guys using to bring your old analog in? I got a buddy that has a bunch of old tape he wants to edit on a g-4 450 and I have never digitized analog and don't know what to look for in break out boxes.
thanks.

Chet,

You should take a look at the Dazzle's Hollywood DV Bridge. It's a sort of Swiss Army Knife for digital/analog connnections and conversions. Here's a link to it at MacConnection:

There are 3 or 4 decent convertors on the market. The Dazzle Hollywood Bridge is the least expensive. The instruction book is limited and not setting it up (pressing a few buttons and running a few cables) properly gives a few people fits. The quality seems fine. The Formac Studio is a little more money, but a don't here the troubles like I do with the Dazzle. Sony has a convertor as does Canopus. Users generally have the least complaints with them but they are more expensive yet. Laird makes a high end unit I've used on occasion, but at $1700 it's out of most peoples budget.
