I used an easy setup for the project XDCAM VBR 1080 24P (something like that).

It's not pro rez.

When I would edit with HVX200 footage captured using 24 pn (only 24 p - no pull down), I would set my Kona Card to 720 P 59.97 DVC PRO HD (something like that). The Kona would play that just fine, so I think that Jeremy is right.

The footage was imported with the XDCAM import/FCP tool. I shot it as EX1 1080 24P footage (best quality).

I am not sure what is going on. I'll keep looking over my settings. I opened up a few other projects and they all go out of sync. I did not notice it before because they were just scenic shots. This new footage/project has people talking in it. It's obviously messed up. I am hoping that it's just a Kona thing and that my footage is fine.

When you said out of sync I assumed you meant VIDEO sync. Are you saying it is AV sync???

Oops! I meant lip sync. The audio plays in real time. The video lags behind (looks like slow motion).

I wonder if you are taking the audio from the Mac or from the Kona. It should/must come from the Kona.

The audio comes from the Kona.

It's not just out of sync, but the audio is running at real time and the video is behind and playing at a slow speed (kind of like slow motion).

I love this camera, but Final Cut Pro seems to have some issues with it. Besides the audio/video sync issue with the Kona, I often get the dropped frame error often (I think thats what it's called -- when the timeline stops playing) AND the xdcam transfer program makes duplicate browser items of each clip I import. This is very annoying.

Let me know if you guys figure out how to fix any of these problems. It could be user error!

I see a lot of people shoot in 720p with this camera. Is that to avoid these issues?

I'll bet your computer and/or disk is simply too slow for 1920x1080 HD. Run the Kona system checker.

And, yes I've seen duplicate clips. Not a big deal.

Here's what AJA had to say:

Hi Jason,

XDCAM playback is not supported however is should work.

1) Go to FCP audio video settings and set video playback to AJA Kona
1080i29.97 8-bit.

2) Go to FCP system settings -> playback control and set video quality to
HIGH and frame rate to FULL.

3) If Kona is install in a Mac Pro:
a) Install Kona in slot 3.
b) Go to: /system/library/core services/
i) Run the expansion slot utility
ii) Configure PCIe slots for: 16:1:4:4 (option 2)
iii) reboot.


Let us know if you need additional support.
Best regards
Rudy

I WILL TRY IT OUT SOON AND LET YU KNOW!
