AJA Kona Easy Setup for DVCPro HD
on Jun 17, 2010 at 5:47:17 pm

Can anyone provide me the specs to create a AJA Kona Easy Setup for DVCPro HD for Final Cut. I see Easy Setups for DVCPro HD, but they all use firewire and say that DVCPro HD Digitizer is missing. Can I download this from AJA?

You have to install them.

Run the driver install again, but UNCHECK the driver portion at the top and UNCHECK 'Base', then install the DVCPro HD setups towards the bottom that pertain to your particular format.

Thanks for the help. It worked. It there anyway to do the same thing for XDCam Easy Setups? I did not see those options when I re-installed the drivers. I can make one myself, but I am not sure what the specs are for Capture presets.

Try 'HDV'.

I'm not sure how that would help me. Are HDV and XDCam the same codec? If I make an Easy Setup with XDCam, under the Capture Presets, what Digitizer would I use 10bit or 8bit?

No, they aren't but I think the XDcam codecs might be bundled in the HDV.

Thanks for the response. I installed the HDV setups, but no XDCam setups came with them. Maybe in AJA's next update.

Sorry about that. I am not sure if you can capture XDcam like that as it's usually a tapeless format. I'd suggest capturing to ProRes anyway, and editing your XDcam clips in a ProRes timeline.

You can probably do it via firewire.

Thanks I could do that. A client wants XDCam files. We would be capturing from HDCam or D5. I figured it would work in Final Cut Capture like any other capture codec. I'll test when the time comes.

Yeah, I can't remember exactly why, but XDcam doesn't work like that I don't think, otherwise the presets would be there.

What you could do is make the files in Compressor after you capture ProRes.
