Just received our Ki Pro. I need to get setup using FCP Edit to Tape to lay off shows to the KP with Timecode.
Our previous workflow was to black and code, lay off to Digibeta with assemble edit so that the shows start at 1.00.00.00. FCP would lay down the bars, slate and countdown. I now want to use the Ki Pro in the same way so I can lay off to HDCAM.
I've successfully got the Ki Pro to record. I enter my start TC, and do an assemble edit. The KiPro displays the correct TC, 00.58.30.00 and acts like its doing pre-roll it then starts recording and the TC goes to 00.00.00.00.
Can anyone talk me through setting up and laying off through RS422?
[Richard Sutcliffe]"So it should work just fine to enter a TC in the edit to tape window and set that as my in point for the assemble edit?"
Set the tc in point in the ETT window. Drag the sequence from the browser on to the ETT window and place it on the Assemble overlay window.
*Your ki pro must be in remote mode and tc set to rs422.*
The ki will think for a few seconds, backup to 3 seconds before your inpoint and record. Once the file is done recording, it will have no preroll, just a file that starts at the in point you typed in the ETT window.
It's like mastering to tape, but no need for black and code. Just type in the in point to ETT and away you go.
