Any further word on that laptop monitoring solution? I'm a ConnectHD user and would love to try it. Thanks.

Phil is with AspectHD if I'm not mistaken, which means it's for PC only. I believe...

It is for PC only and it needs to be fast enough to decode the full-res stream in real-time.

So if your laptop can playback one of the transport streams generated by the camera in VLC or some other MPEG2 player with at least a little bit of CPU left over it will probably work.

And that's correct Heath. I work for CineForm.

Any possiblity of getting software vectorscope and waveform while monitoring HDV on the laptop? We use FCP on a laptop for this with DV and it is great since we can't afford hardware scopes.

It looks like Ulead's HDV plugin will do monitoring also on the PC side, but I don't know if it will be fullscreen or not.

A real laptop monitoring solution available

Hi,

At this time, you can use Paul Glagla's Captureflux for incoming DV sources.

It's a freeware. And you can use live picture coming from the camcorder in fullscreen at full speed on a 2 GHz laptop


http://paul.glagla.free.fr/6.htm


In French and usable first for direct capture on Notebook.


Try it !

Is that software DV only? HDV is a different issue, although the idea is similar. I sure that tool could be upgraded.

I think Paul Glaga has no access to HDV camcorder for a release. I will ask him.

Look in my post, i had precised in the first line for incoming DV sources. By waiting for the tool from Cineform, you can use Captureflux with Y/C c‚ble from the JVC camcorder to a compact convert Box (analkogue to DV) like Canopus ADVC-55 (pocket size).


Message for David Newman, are Aspect HP and Connect HD PAL ready now ?

Sylvain,

The CFHD codec can handle just about any format. HDLink -- the CineForm capture/convert utility -- will happily convert 720p30, 480p60 and 576p50 without any issues. However, converting the 576p25 is problematic today -- this will be adressed soon. With this one exception Connect HD is ready today. Aspect HD has many more real-time tools than Connect HD, these tools are being finalized to support the p60 and p50 modes that will be part of a free upgrade soon.

For the Mac folks (like myself) I ran across this on the iMovie page the other day:

Quote:
iMovie also lets you take greater advantage of other members of your digital hub. Do you use iSight? Now, if you train that lens away from yourself and towards another subject, iMovie can capture that video stream. Thatís right, iMovie will import live audio and video from iSight and place it in the Clips pane (or directly into the Timeline), where you can edit it just like the footage you capture with your camcorder.
I don't have iMovie 4 yet to test this function out with a different FireWire camera than it suggests (iSight). If someone has tested this, let us know. My new Powerbook should be here in time for my first weekend of shooting and I'd like to give it a try as a monitor.

Um....of course there needs to be a pretty long cable, too.

Patrick,

does this have to do with cutting via HDV (the new hi-def video format) from the JVC HD10 or HD1?
