Photoshop files into traditional online edit bay
on Nov 29, 2005 at 8:36:33 pm

Hi, I'm editing in a digital on-line room using an Abekas switcher, Accom edit controller, and Digital Betacam tapes. We have a PC in the room running Inscriber graphics for a CG and one of its cooler features is Video Clipboard. VC captures any image on the screen and sends it out the video card to the Abekas switcher. Photoshop pictures, web-sites, JPEGs, etc.
Here's the rub. Its a Windows NT system, Inscriber doesn't utilize VC in its new products running on XP.

I'm looking for a new solution that will do the same thing as VC - send out anything from the computer to the switcher.

any suggestions? Thanks, PB

save the psd files as tga files (resize to 720X486 first). You can then import em as fill screen graphics with the Inscriber. You can throw those in the DVE and have yer way with em.
Linear bays were toal chick magnets.
"wow, what do all these buttons do!?"

But usually not the kind of chicks you'd want to brag about with the engineers.:-)

There are other ways to screencap as well, Snapzpro or camtasia being among the most popular. You can also create batch operations in photoshop and the like to convert a whole folder's worth of images automatically.

Thanks folks. I'll give it a shot. I've got to say that Video Clipboard is a really nice, quick feature of the Inscriber package, and I think its a shame they have taken it out of their package in recent releases.

Just a note on Traditional On-line (albeit, digital with pre-read)
I've had several years in on-line before I operated Avid and the Quantel Editbox.
I loved the Quantel. Talk about a chick magnet, it was certainly the sexiest system I've edited on. Just a Wacom type tablet & wand and a screen, and everything looked like film. way cool. and Avid, of course is awesome. i still have Pro running on a laptop at home.

What makes the digital on-line bay at MDA cool is its using the Accom Axial editor which has some built in "un-linear" editing functions, especially when using the 2 Abekas DDRs. Without the DDRs and a lot of decks, this would not nearly be as sweet.

Thanks, Phil B

wow - the linear edit bay has evolved since I said goodbye to my Ampex setup. We used to use a Targa 2000 to put Photoshop images into the switcher, since the computer system was pretty useless as a nonlinear editor due to slow disk drive speeds.

I was one of a very small number of people that actually got delivery of the GVG Sabre Edit. That was the coolest linear edit system I have ever seen. I could stack up edits in tht timeline as far as I could go before actually making the edit, as long as the machines could cue up in time for real time play. It did a fabulous job of controlling my GVG 200 switcher, my Chyron Super Scribe, and my GVG (Dubner) Still Store Paint system, along with Digi-Betas and Beta machines. they never got it to talk to my Ampex VPR6's before teh project was canned and Tektronix closed the entire editing department. My buddies at Editware who came from GVG have done a very nice job with utilizing some of those features in their newer systems. I was told that I was only 1 out of maybe 7 people that ever fully understood that system and actually loved it.

Sorry to be so far off topic but had to get my 2 cents in.

Check out the NewTek VT4 http://www.newtek.com not only can you display whatever is on the VT4's screen on the program out but you also can view the display of ANY pc on your network using NewTek's revolutionary IVGA which sends the output from the video card over a network for use as a switcher input on the VT4
