I am editing in FCP going through an AJA IoLa to a Sony Digibeta deck.
I can't get audio to the deck from FCP when "editing to tape". "print to video" works fine, but I cant get the right timecode, so I can't use that. I've checked ALL the FCP audio settings. Been through them with AJA tech support too.
I've tried different firmware upgrading/downgrading for the AJA IoLa and different drivers.
Also, scrubbing through the timeline works. Audio bars on the deck bounce, so that works fine.
Any idea why I can't get it to edit to tape with audio?
My to try list for tomorrow:
- try a 3rd firewire cable
- reinstall FCP (already tried 2 different computers)
- "edit to tape" a single file instead of a nested timeline.
... any more ideas to try?
My first guess is user error in enabling the deck. We have some Panny DVC Pro decks with a source button for video and one for audio, and each one can be toggled between SDI, Analog, built-in test tone, and lord knows what else. Usually, these things are "pilot error" where you thought you did a setting right, but didn't REALLY look hard at it. I've done it, you have too, or you will, someday. So, check those input selectors one more time, never hurts.
