problems conforming on MAC
on Apr 2, 2012 at 9:24:55 am

hi,

we having problem in conforming in our MAC RESOLVE we had a film shot in 5 different cameras and as it is a low budget film we thought of grading on the mac config as our linux system is busy with commercials

mac config:

macpro quad core intel xeon 2.4
ati randeon hd5770 ,quadro 4000
tangentwave
10gb ram
promise storage 12tb fibre conectivity

problems:

black frame comes in the confirmed shots ( the place varies every time you login and logout) it used to come in the dpx files few days back now its in r3d files.

the edit points in the shots given in the mediapool and when pulled on to the timeline changes or it takes the same edit point given earlier .

confirmed shots in the time line show black but if you exit and relaunch the resolve software the shots reappear.

the timeline is of multi camera shoot(r3d,dpx,cannon 5d,viper,hdv)

any help will be appreciated

How long is the project ?

Do you have all material with the same frame rate ?

Try one reel per project.

You can't reliably mix frame rates in in a timeline if you need to take it out via an EDL. The EDL put out by the editing application cannot correctly represent shot lengths for different frame rates in one timeline. Whoever edited this should have first converted all the media to one common frame rate.

For now, they can either struggle with this, or go back, convert everything to one frame rate and re-edit. There is no simple fix for this. Clumsy edit work.

BTW your Quad core MacPro is underpowered for this task. Even a new i5 iMac will probably outperform it in some tasks.

thanks
yes i do understand its a mess of edit work but the editor has disappeared ;) and passed on the mess i was finding ways to sortout the issue. i do agree the config is not that great but any ways its our conforming station but for this job we are trying to squeeze it as our linux resolve is busy .
i was thinking is smoke the way???
conform on smoke and export dpx of the entire timeline.

You could try that, but in all probability, even Smoke might struggle with some of the clips.
There might be a way to fix this in FCP, though.
