Using Scopes

I am trying to achieve a "trucolor" scene file and in doing so I need to use a waveform and vector scope. The only problem is how to connect the 350 to the computer. I have available

AJA Xena Lh
Adobe Creative Suite, which includes OnLocation
Vegas 8
Hamlet VidScope

I have tried running HD-SDI from camera to the AJA Xena Lh and nothing from Adobe or Vegas saw to feed from camera. VidScope did see the camera but the monitor window was a scrambled mess and messing with the matrix setting in camera did not affect the vector scope any.

Suggestions?

Thanks

Jim

Hi,

VEGAS: even if the hardware generally supports the Lh card, Scopes (and other displays) do not show the incoming live signal but only playout (preview window) footage.

But I guess it should work with onlocation - or does Onlocation only support incoming fiwi signals?

Have a try to use the AVC Out (firewire) to Onlocation.

(yes, this is the downconverted SD signal, but worth a 1st try)

Got it. Now all I have to do is figure out how to make the little lines go where I want.

I tried to download from the link you provided for the excel sheet with no luck. Do you still happen to have it?
