Intermittent handle problems
on Nov 5, 2008 at 4:09:32 pm

When doing a batch capture I have set it for 1 sec. handles.
All clips have a handle on the tail but only about half have it on the head.

Mac Pro
OS-10.5.2
FCP-6.01
QT-7.4.5
Kona 3-6.0.1

Is it possible that you forgot to click the handles button on some of the captures or are you doing this in one go?

Nope. Doing it all in one go. What has me confused is why it is honoring the tail end handle but not the the head?

Trash your FCp preferences.

Did that Jeremy first thing. No effect. What makes it so difficult to diagnose is how intermitent it is.

Did you uninstall and reinstall the Kona drivers?

Is it happening to the same clips? or is it completely random?

Cheers,
Ramona

Well, sometimes yes and sometimes no. I found that there are random in/out's set. So I cleared those and recaptured a test clip. One time it seemed to work and another still had the random tail handle and no handle at the head. Plus what is weird is the tail handle is not what I set it at. Its not even a whole second.

So far I have trashed prefs, re-installed Kona drivers.

Is it only this deck that you have these problems?

Jeremy, I just got our HVR-M15U and hooked it up via FW. Capturing perfectly. On capture with the HVR-1500 I kept getting the warning that it was reading NDF so I assumed that the tapes were shot NDF and set the TC as NDF. With the M15 I set it at DF and all is fine. Do you know how to get DF out of the 1500? I am looking through the user manual and don't see anything.

I have not worked with that deck before, but doesn't the 1500 have rs422? If you re using 9 pin serial control df/ndf should be detected automatically.

Ok, after banging my head against this all morning. I confirmed with the DP that the field tapes are absolutley NDF. Both the 1500 and the M15 are detecting this correctly. The 1500 is sending NDF TC out. The M15 I cant tell.

-In the AJA control panel it says that the incoming video signal is 1080i29.97.

-I am capturing into DV. Is DV a DF TC codec only?

Thanks, for you help. I feel like a dog chasing his own tail right now.

No, it's not but it usually defaults to DF. There's a firewire NDF device control preset.

Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you, I just returned from a job.

Jeremy, thanks for your help. After numerous test I've come to the conclusion that the problem lies with some sort of incompatibility between FCP/Kona/HVR-1500. Our M15u with FW control work great. Go figure. I've sent the 1500 back (we were renting) and got an M25 instead.
