David and Aurora,

I tried all the different codecs. None would allow capture without
"broken timecode" abort. The abort is never at the same place.
I'm capturing from SDI, just like I did on the old setup.

As far as capturing from firewire...
I don't see an input option within the Aurora codecs.
It's just composite, component, s video, and SDI.
I don't want to do that anyway. It won't solve the problem of
Aurora/FCP working with the Panasonic DVCPRO AJ455 deck.
It might cause me other problems with sync and timecode
when I uprez or capture a different way later.
I'll have to disconnect the deck from the rack and patchbay
and other AVID edit rooms use the deck too. This will not
look good down the road as far as future purchases go,
if you know what I mean. This place loves their AVIDs
as it is. This is just another reason to not stick with FCP.

This is very frustrating, and the reason by the way,
many people won't go with an FCP setup.
I've lost two days of work when I could have been
digitizing and getting ready for the edit sessions.
I'm probably going to have to stay overnight and dub
all the DVCPRO tapes to DigiBeta so I can get this project done.

And we're not talking about a deck that's new or not in use.
There are thousands of these AJ455s out there.
Or maybe it's not FCP/Aurora.
Maybe it's Tiger/Quicktime 7.
Who the heck knows.
That's the trouble.

Finally, I'd just stay in the old partition with the old setup
if it wasn't for the fact this new project is multicam
and I need that part of FCP5. I sold management
on the upgrade because of this ability.
We already can do Multicam on the AVIDs and now
they are scheduled for other projects.

Dan
