[WORKFLOW] Canon 5D Mk II --> LaCie LaCinema Rugged HD
on Jun 18, 2010 at 11:49:31 pm

I'm having partial success editing 5D footage in FCP for deployment via a LaCie LaCinema Rugged HD.

The LaCie drive is very cool, but poorly documented. Or maybe my FCP config is not right.

My distribution is targeted for public exhibition in on 50" Panasonic industrial plasma displays in showrooms. The LaCinema drives with HDMI output look a lot easier than Blu-Ray authoring.

Specific problem:

I need to set the LaCinema to loop play. The video looks fine, but at the loop point the LaCinema "reloads" the program. The source program is 1080P, a perfect match for the monitor. But after looping, the video restarts in letterbox mode, with program video horizontally squished.

If I cycle through the monitor inputs, it correctly sets the aspect once my video begins to play. Not workable for unattended continuous playback.

Also, I'm not getting audio.

My current workflow:

5D 1080P @ 24P --> MPEG Streamclip to ProRes 422 LT --> FCP --> output as H.264 file (via FCP -> File -> Share).

The LaCinema supports a wide variety of file formats. Documentation is little more than a spec sheet.
