Re: TM900 and Editing the 50p files

Well I just finished viewing my newly burnt Blu Ray on my Sony BR Player and 50" LG Plasma and I gotta say I am gobbsmacked!! I used VMS to create a 1280 x 720 50p MPEG 2 BR compliant file which I burnt with Corel DVD Movie Factory and the results are outstanding. I found it very hard to notice the difference between the full resolution 1080 50p file and the 720 50p file.

I am VERY happy with my workflow to create my 50p videos. I am off to Thailand for a 3 week holiday in October/November and I can't wait to take my new toy and grab some awesome footage. It will make my return home a bit exiting as well as I'll be keen to create a HQ video diary.

I'll put up the application once finished.

720p is a very good compromise currently. I know what you are getting at regarding the WD live player. I think we need to wait for media players sporting AVCHD 2.0 to guarantee proper playback of 1080/50p footage.

Re: TM900 and Editing the 50p files


Some of the newer Sony Blu-ray players now have firmware updates to support AVCHD 2.0.

I think the trend will be those Blu-ray players that are 3D capable will get upgrades as they have the processing power available, older 2D models probably not.

TM900 - Adobe CS 5.5 for Editing the 50p Files?

I've just decided to buy CS5.5 Production Premium for my Mac Pro and get to know it as I slowly wind down use of Final Cut Studio 2 for my professional video work (mainly XDCAM EX and 7D workflow) and switch to something I'm happy to use going forward knowing it'll be properly supported/have the professional features I need. FCPX certainly does not!

Anyone know if Adobe CS5.5 Production Premium will handle the TM900 1080p50 28Mbps AVCHD 2 format files yet? (FCP6 certainly won't). I have Vegas 9E on a Windows 7 Core i7 box that does really well but I'm hoping I can easily mix XDCAM EX, 7D and TM900 clips all on one platform/NLE in the not too distant future, if only to save some round tripping between computers etc.

Re: TM900 and Editing the 50p files

Prem CS5.5 has a preset for 1080/50p, so no problem there. You will need one of the Adobe accredited graphics cards fitted to unleash the power of the Mercury playback engine. You can however save a fortune by using much cheaper cards, with a simple, and apparently very safe hack. info here.
