Having a weird week of HDCAM fun. Here's the current issue, didn't see anything in prior cow posts...
Laying off at 23.98psf 1080i ProRes-422. Layback seems to go fine.
Intel Dual 3
AJA Kona 3 driver v5.0
Evertz Tri-Sync (feeds K3 and loops into deck)
When we play the tape back, there is a 1-2 frame offset on all the tapes. Not too upset about that one (but it'd be great if it were accurate!)
The weird thing is that in the ETT window, the timecode is innacurate from what is on the tape by about 3-5 frames. It never catches up. If you try to Shift-I to a specific in-point, FCP can't find the frame.
FYI, I have 23.98 sync going into the K3 and looping into the deck. I've done this many times before with no problems. Perhaps a deck setting?
I'm new to hdcam, but I have a weird problem w/ timecode too...
In the ETT window, the timecode is fine while the tape is playing, but when the tape stops, the timecode jumps to some (seemingly) random point. When I hit play again, it goes back to the correct code. I am sure it is something set-up wrong, but like I said, I am new to hdcam and can't seem to put my finger on it. ETT or insert edits do not work. When I code / black the tape, I only do the first 20 -30 secs or so... and don't want to waste the :30 to do whole tapes. It is weird b/c the digitbeta works fine. Any ideas?
