Ripped dvcpro tape
on Jun 24, 2012 at 11:49:42 pm

I have a dvcpro tape that ripped as I was pulling it out of our camcorder. I need to repair it. In the past I have just taken scotch tape and while I get a hit at that moment i can still recover the tape. Is there a better way to do this?

Most post houses can do this for a fee- just depends where you are in the world.

I'd take care of it the way you have been.

As a follow up:

I am torn (no pun intended) between capturing in DVCPro HD or through the SDI output of the deck to my capture card and then real-time transcoding to ProRes. I know at the end of the day only the most technical and sensitive will be able to tell but since this is supposed to be a master, I want the best quality possible. Would capturing as ProRes give me an more latitude and help with compression concatenation or not?

IMO, b/c it originates on DVCPROHD, you would not gain any noticable difference coming in via SDI to Prores. Unless;

You were planning on many, many layers of grfx and rendering and compositing and more layers, multi-rendered etc.

My thought exactly but they say you loose some with every generation so I am wondering if you loose less with transcoding to a better format.
