Dear Olakunle,

I worked in Osogbo in the nineties on a World bank project (DHV Consultants). We had an Olakunle in our team. It doesn't happen to be you, I suppose?

No, though I was born near Osogbo and Schooled in Osogbo. It is nice to know you've been to Osogbo anyway we could hook-up any time you decide to come back visiting.

Atmos isn't Working

I have noticed that for some time now the atmos site is working Enter The Ninja, what could be wrong? I don't think this is good for Business.

I haven't tried it myself but based on the reports of many other Vegas users it reads ProRes just fine once you install the codec.

Atomos's website is fine ?

Just checked and their website is still active ?

Have also sent them an Email Jim asking them to include an SDI input in the future, I suggest we send them a few queries about when the upgrade will take place :-)

Good luck with sending emails. I sent one and received no response. When or if their product is released, be careful. Wait for some credible reviews before placing an order.

I've used ProRes for years on Vegas. Works fine.

True. But they still work for Premier, Avid, and Vegas.

Your choices are limited to whatever you choose them to be. Others are doing every day, what say you cannot do.

This one:

Blackmagic Design: H.264 Pro Recorder

Only now it says it will ship in November instead of October.

I finally queried BlackMagic on its intended deliver date as I have had this device on order from B&H since the beginning of June 2010. BlackMagic responded this week as follows:

"Barry,

Thank you for your interest in our products.

At this time, the Blackmagic Design, H.264 Pro Recorder is still considered
to be under development. Currently, the most up to date information I have
is that we are hoping to see this unit, production ready and shipping
sometime by the end of 2010/beginning of 2011 timeframe. However, because
this unit is still under development, ship time estimates are still subject
to change.

I have no information regarding any plans to replace this unit with an
updated version. Nor am I aware of any future feature additions which will
allow for the storage of captured material in the manner for which you are
looking.

It is highly doubtful at this time, that we would release a device that will
more closely suit the workflow you have described below.

Hope this information was helpful.

Richard T. Chao
Support Engineer
Blackmagic Design Inc. USA"

Needless to say, I have since cancelled my order. Given that another thread has been discussing the merits of ProRes vs. H.264 I am now leaning towards a ProRes solution. However, I refuse to purchase anything that uses Compact Flash cards. Toshiba is now manufacturing very thin and space saving SSD's with as much as 256GB of storage and a SATAII interface as used in the MacBook Air. Surely, AJA and/or Convergent will get the drift and abandon Compact Flash cards. If and when that happens, they will receive my consideration.

You may be waiting a while. A significant part of professional workflow (which these units are aimed at) includes hand-off) as the shooter is often on contract, and does not get to take the tape/SDHC card/CF card home. To facilitate this common professional workflow, practically every modern pro or prosumer camera offers removable media.

The inability to do a footage handoff after shooting would likely preclude sales to most professional shooters because it means that they could not do a hand-off, and it means that any media issue would render the unit inoperable until it's fixed. That problem is solved on removable media by placing another card in the slot.

Maybe what you want will be developed. But I wouldn't bet on it.
