varicam phantom HD and the KI Pro
on Feb 26, 2010 at 6:24:21 pm

Hi two questions rolled into one.

1. is it possible to use the Ki Pro to record from the varicam I understand that the Ki Pro hasn't got variable speed play back. Does that mean how ever that I could capture proxies that we could then up ress in the online? Will time code be the same? Assuming i can use the HD-SDI out put?

2. I presume its irrelevant what your HD-SDI signal comes from? If i use the playback feature on the Phantom HD Gold it will play back at 25 fps ( with the software you can set it back to play how ever you want ) So that it will be recorded on the KI PRO as 25fps, is this assumption correct?


Cheers

[jennie stenhouse] "is it possible to use the Ki Pro to record from the varicam I understand that the Ki Pro hasn't got variable speed play back. "

The current version of the KiPro software does what I will call VFR "lite"- I can capture the standard frame rates the camera supports- so with the 1.1 update you can record 720p materials at 23.98, 24, 25, and 29.97 without pulldown. The 1.1 firmware does not allow for true "offspeed" recordings yet.

Note too that when you shoot with Varicam @ 25/ 60p (not 59.94) you will not be able to monitor the video being passed thru the KiPro.

Yep- do it all the time, Please note that the camera does not do a full debayer when playing back - only the Phantom's Cinestation allows for full debayer playback.

Yes it will, are you aware of the PhantomCine QT plugin that allows you to work with the native Phantom .Cine files? <http://www.gluetools.com>

IMHO Gluetools is still the best way to get the most out of the phantom camera, it allows access to the full 16bit color space the camera records and it allows preview of the cine files in QT player.
