Was just wondering....

Is CineAcquire available to CineWave users that purchased their systems before it was offered?

I believe there is an upgrade price for pre-CineAcquire days Cinewave users. Check with your VAR.

It's a capture and record control software. Basically an alternative to FCP.

From the Pinnacle website:

http://www.pinnaclesys.com/docloader.asp?templ=10&doclink=/dotMedia/cinewav...

CinéAcquire

CinéWave Classic includes the new, robust CinéAcquire™ application and plug-in module for Commotion Pro and After Effects. CinéAcquire allows you to quickly and easily do everything from grab a frame to batch capture with complete RS-422 deck and device control in NTSC/PAL and widely used HD formats. Upgrading your CinéWave Classic system is as easy as attaching a breakout box or loading some new software. You do not need to change the underlying system configuration.

Is the CineAcquire interface different from the FCP capture/output interface?

I believe it is part of my Cinewave RT package, (purchased in July),
but I have always captured throught the FCP log & capture window, and output to video through the "edit to tape" interface.

Is there an option, or is this CineAcquire working in the background?

CineAcquire is a seperate program that's installed and runs on it's own. Plug-in's make it accessable directly from Commotion Pro and After Effects. If you have it you should install and take a look at it. It's a much more robust capture program than the Log and Capture applett in FCP.

francois.starkCineAcquire's handling of timecode....?
by on Nov 1, 2002 at 11:55:49 am

When you capture in Cineacquire, can you drag and drop those clips from your media drive into FCP? Will it keep the timecode information? Would FCP be able to recapture it?

Would you be able to use a standalone Cineacquire system for capturing to shared drives, and then move to the other Cinewave system on the same drives, and finish the project there? with the proper timecode transfer?

I know edit* stored timecodes for each clip in a seperate database. Goes over timecode breaks, stores one timcode for every frame in the clip. AVID just stores the first timecode of each clip in it's database, since it detects TC breaks and starts recapturing after each TC break. So avid assumes there are no TC breaks in each clip.

Where does FCP store timecode for each clip? Is it stored somewhere in the Quictime file format?

[francois.stark] "When you capture in Cineacquire, can you drag and drop those clips from your media drive into FCP?"

Yes

[francois.stark] "Will it keep the timecode information?"

Yes

[francois.stark] "Would FCP be able to recapture it?"

Yes

[francois.stark] "Would you be able to use a standalone Cineacquire system for capturing to shared drives, and then move to the other Cinewave system on the same drives, and finish the project there?"

Yes

[francois.stark] "with the proper timecode transfer? "

Yes

[francois.stark] "Where does FCP store timecode for each clip? Is it stored somewhere in the Quictime file format? "

Unlike edit* which stored timecode, the relationship with it's audio tracks, and other metafile information in seperate files and in the Windows registry Quicktime stores this information in the master Quicktime file. Any Quicktime aware application can have access to it. As a test open a CineWave/FCP captured video file in the Quicktime player and select the enable tracks menu. Note there are also "extract" tracks and "delete" tracks menu options.

Well Bart has done a great job of detailing Cineacquire. We realized there was a need, especially for graphic artist, to be able to capture directly into the application or with an inexpensive solution. Cineacquire does this. It comes with the rs422 Pipeline digital cable, so you have the deck control you need. If you are an AE artist, you can capture and record without having to leave AE. Here's some more info:

CinéAcquire, a powerful application introduced at NAB that expands the video graphics design capability of any CinéWave-equipped Power Mac G4 by providing direct, frame accurate, machine control for sophisticated video capture and record to tape. CinéAcquire works as both a stand-alone application and as a plug-in module for Pinnacle Systems Commotion Pro and Adobe After Effects. CinéAcquire allows users to efficiently perform critical tasks such as frame grabs and batch captures with complete RS-422 deck and device control in NTSC/PAL and widely used HD formats. CinéAcquire includes support for the 720p High Definition format, FireWire (IEEE 1394) deck and device control, frame capture with timecode, import and export of Final Cut Pro, and tab delimited batch lists and record-to-tape functions. CinéAcquire also includes the Pipeline Digital RS-422 Device Control Cable for easy connectivity to VTRs and other external devices.

Hope this helps,
