Offline capture AJA-IO LA
on Sep 12, 2007 at 2:03:44 pm

I am working in an environment with incredibly limited storage. I am currently capturing roughly 4 hours of industrial footage using the AJA IO LA interface. I can set up Offline Sequence settings but the AJA doesn't seem to have a corresponding Offline Capture quality setting that will keep capture disk space to a minimum and I REALLY MEAN MINIMUM.
I have tried a couple of things but am getting no real space savings. The only thing I can do is capture 8 bit and recompress using Media Manager.
Anybody else with this problem?

Do you know how to use the Io LA and the easy setups?

Hit control-q and choose form the myriad of inputs and codecs.

I would suggest capturing to DV and not 8Bit. This will also allow real time previews of footage, unlike offline rt.

Hit control-q and choose the AJA IO 'choose an input' 8 bit to dv.

Hi Jeremy, thanks.
I know about easy setup but I find that the DV codec is looking for a
firewire device and I need to log using RS-422 from BetaCam.
A few days ago I created an easy setup on this same project but in comparing
"original to modified" clip size,I wasn't saving much space on the drive.

Have you installed the io drivers?

Did you simply choose DV-NTSC (or DV-PAL) or did you choose the AJA 8bit to DV Easy Setup? You need to use the AJA Easy Setup.
