The DR-HD100 ships with a cradle that features a 1/4" threaded insert which would allow you to mount to the IDX bracket.

DR-HD100, re: assigning clips to reels

for Mr. McEwen -

I have thusfar been unable to successfully assign clips to specific reels in spite of a close reading of the manual (p.81)
When I mount the HD100 to my computer my recorded clips show up in an unnumbered folder separate from the default numbered ones. This occurs even though I can confirm on the LCD screen that the specified target reel is showing on the line above the FA function reel selection. This reel selection is made while the camera is in record, as per the manual.

Could you give me the proper protocol to make this handy feature work?
Thanks,
Mark Sanford

From what you describe, it sounds like you have not done the Organize Reel step (from the Utilities menu) prior to connecting to a computer. This actually takes you Reel markings and physically moves the clip to a folder.

Hope that helps,

Matt

Matt -

Ahhh, yes, right there on page 82, plain as day.

Thanks for your help and prompt response.

Timcode w/ dr-hd100

I'm having trouble getting my hd100 to send time code to the dr-hd100. I have the setting at TC Ext. on the dr-hd100 and TC Rec. on the hd100. When I record, the clips on the dr-hd100 start from zero while the clips on the hd100 are different. I'm either doing something wrong or it isn't possible. Any ideas?

Thanks.

You need to press the DISP button which displays all of the different TC modes. Using the middle Function key on the DR-HD100 (top row, under DISP on the LCD), press the key until you see either TC 720p/XX or DV NTSC. This will display source TC.

Trouble getting my DR-HD100 to act as AV/C Device for FCP Capture

Hi Matt,

I've been trying to get Final Cut Studio to recognize my Firestore DR-HD100 as an av/c device so that I can capture my 720 24p m2ts into native QT HDV, but I'm having problems. Final Cut does not recognize my Firestore at all when I have it connected.

Can you tell me all the settings I need to have in place for Final Cut to recognize my Firestore for capture?

Thanks,

Geoff Murillo

I just tried it as you suggested and the tc did follow although when I took it into FCP (via MPEG Streamclip), I lost it again (it started from zero). I've ordered the Quicktime HDV upgrade and I'm assuming that that will fix the problem, no? When it converts it to QT in the DR-HD100, I'm hoping it will include the tc information. Is that right?

Thanks.

Yes, the QuickTime HDV (version 2.0) support does do a re-stripe of the TC so that it will match. I believe that MPEG Streamclip ignores the TC in the conversion, but I cannot be 100% sure. It has been a while since I have used it. But, you should be good to go with the 2.0 version.

Hope that helps,

Matt

Hi Geoff,

This is an known issue with FCP 5.1.2. I am happy to add you to the beta list for QuickTime HDV 720p24 support when it is available.

Thanks,
Matt
