Capturing with final cut pro keeps dropping frames
on Apr 10, 2007 at 2:50:22 pm

Hello,

I am trying to capture various formats (mini Dv, DVD, Digibeta) to Final Cut pro through an AJA Io system. I am using a G5 and have plenty of free space on my scratch drive. All was working perfectly well until this week. When ever I try and capture it will work for 20 seconds then an error message will pop up saying the capture failed due to dropped frames. I

What kind of scratch disk do you have and at what codec are you capturing to?

because if you are trying to work on an internal single drive in your G5, you ain't gonna do much of anything other than DV25 - and that is if you have a second internal drive to capture on. You need a big mama drive array to do this work - anything from an external FW800, to products from Cal Digit, Ciprico, Medea, and others. You must specify what resolution you are working at, for me to give you more details as well - yes, it does matter.

Hello,

I have 2 extra internal drives one entirly devoted to capturing.

My set up setting are:

Sequence Preset: DV PAL 48 Khz
Capture Preset AJA io: Composite 8-bit PAL to DV 48 Khz
Device Control Preset: AJA io RS-422 PAL
Platback output video - PAL - Component YPbPr SMPTE N10 - 8 - bit 422 (720 x 576)

Im working at 720 x 576


it will capture for 20 seconds then the error will come up 'Dropped frames were detected during the last capture attempt'

When was the last time you wiped that second internal drive? A little fragmentation in a single drive setup goes a long way towards dropped frames on capture.

download AJA Kona System Test (even though you have the I/O), and report back the read and write times. You should be getting at least 60mb/sec on a properly working internal single SATA drive. If you are not, there is an issue with your drive. It looks like you are only working at DV resolution, so a single internal SATA will work for this (but not for higher resoltuions). It's easy to run AJA Kona System Test, and is critical for testing out your drive speeds, to see if they can work for you.

That's awesome, but all you really need to report is the overall read and write in the top right corner of the Kona System Test.

Write : 35.8 - 39.5 MB/s
Read : 36.1 - 39.7 MB/s

The range is relative to different file sizes..but it seems to be quite low...

yes - this is WAY TOO LOW - a normal SATA drive will do above 60mb/sec. Simply test your boot drive - you will see, even though it is full, you will probably get over 55mb/sec. This is the reason you are getting dropped frames. I urge you to use the Apple Disk Utility to ERASE this drive (make it OS-X Extended, NOT Journaled), and try this test again. If you still get 30mb/sec, something is wrong with your second internal drive.

So I erased my scratch drive and ran the AJA Kona system test.

Results:

Write: 58.5 MB/s
Read: 57.4 MB/s

So both have been increased but I still get the same error message when I try and capture...

Any ideas?

You have selected the 8bit to DV pal easy setup?

And you are sure in your FCP preferences that you are pointing FCP to that scratch drive?

hi guys,

As you guys suggested above, I did them all like; convert drive to OS-extened, check the camera, uninstalling and re-install the FCP but still, it didn't work.

My assumption was change setting at perference and uncheck at
- report dropped frames during plaback
- abort ETT/PTV on dropped frames
- abort capture on dropped frames and
- warn when improrting non-optimised media

After that I shut down both camera and FCP software. And start over again. It works!!

But i'm not sure my assuption will either revelant with the problem or will it create another problem. Please suggest

[ekkachit] "After that I shut down both camera and FCP software. And start over again. It works!!"

That's because you have told FCP to keep capturing even when there's dropped frames. This is not recommended. There is something wrong with the way you have everything configured, or you are leaving out a very crucial step of your workflow that you aren't telling us. It's hard to help in these situations as we don't know the whole story. YOu have plenty of drive speed to capture DV PAL, you have plenty of space there's just something amiss in your settings or workflow.

i am having a similar problem with FCP on a Dual 2GHZ G5 2GB Ram seperate Media drive capturing DV only. It started with FCP not seeing the Deck at all. I reinstalled FCP and quicktime and it now saw the deck but reports dropped frames after about 20 seconds. The strange thing is that Avid on the same system could see the deck all the time and doesn't drop frames.

Assuming that there was some sort of OS problem i have formated the system drive and reinstalled the OS and FCP and Avid. Again Avid has no problems but FCP drops frames. This system was working fine for 2 years. I have 5 other systems with the same configuration all running fine with no problems.

Any suggestions?

Is your separate media drive a firewire drive?
