We are shooting on a F35. My editor wants to see if we can get the footage directly into final cut pro. apparently you can because the final cut manual
"If you’re working with HDCAM SR media, you can ingest it directly as
Apple ProRes 4444 clips using Final Cut Pro with a capture device that supports this. Both HDCAM SR and Apple ProRes 4444 are RGB-based, 4:4:4 color subsampled formats, so one is a natural container for the other."
So when it says "Capture device" is it talking about one of the IO aja units? If so which one would I need? Is there an article out there on the process I can read?
[Granger Pushton]"So when it says "Capture device" is it talking about one of the IO aja units? If so which one would I need?"
Yes it is talking about a capture card or something like an IoHD.
HDCamSR materials are often recorded as 444 RGB and to access that level of material you are limited to the Kona3 card in a powerful Desktop computer which will allow you to capture HDCamSR materials in all manners up to 10bit 444 RGB over DUAL LINK HDSDI.
You are going to need incredibly fast storage to be able to handle that amount of data when being captured. Data Rates for uncompressed materials run from 150MBps to over 600 MBps ( that's megabytes per second)
Did I mention that there are NO such thing as realtime effects when working uncompressed?
