"On behalf of the dedicated team, we would like to thank you for your pre-order Sales Order xxxxx of the AJA Io HD. Due to a manufacturing delay, AJA is expected to begin shipping this product the second week of September."
I hope when they release this box it is everything promised. I am not usually a person that buys stuff before getting to play with it a couple times;-) Id rather they get it right instead of us downloading patches/updates, etc.
Do you think this card can let me cut my 10 hours of HDCAM (1080/60i) footage on Final cut studio 2 and 1TB (non raid) hard drive? I need to chop total footage in 5 different projects no mare then 2 hrs. each.
Let me clarify that the IOHD is not a card, but rather a portable desktop "breakout box," if you will, with analog and digital connectors, and it has a hardware-based ProRes422 encoder/decoder.
The amount of drive space a ProRes422 project will take will depend on several factors, and these include the volume of footage, the resolution at which footage is captured, the frame rate, the amount of rendering needed based on the number of layers and the power of your computer, graphics, animation, etc. I have found sometimes that my render folder actually takes more space than the capture scratch folder, particularly when you're taking the same set of clips within a project and making several versions/sequences that need to be rendered.
