AJA-You Rock!
on Oct 16, 2006 at 6:43:48 pm



well,

I just want to thank AJA for putting in the SD to SD anamorphic in the latest driver release. This is a major value added feature and it also proves that AJA listens to it's cutomers. I suggested this feature in a post some time ago and VIOLA, it shows up.

Why is this great?

1. no more rendering of 4x3 versions in FCP saving us all disk space.
2. Monitor while you edit.
3. Saves you from buying a device that would cost about 750.00 for monitoring.


WAY TO GO AJA!
Excellent product and always thinking of your customers needs.

David



Peace and Love :)

[David Battistella] "I suggested this feature in a post some time ago and VIOLA, it shows up."

Actually I requested this feature AND sent a box of dark chocolates to Nick Rashby and Steve Barsky so I'm not really sure if it was your very kind request or the chocolates that actually got this feature included. :-)

Hey,
Ensemble Designs used to send ME chocolate whenever I helped them complete a sale. With this mindset, I should have AJA have the chocolate tractor trailer back up to my house.

[mody] "Ohh didnt we have this feature in CineWave 3 years back."

Anamorphic SD to realtime crop? Nope. I don't recall this feature ever being there on my system and I ran all the versions right up until the very last update. Mixed formats in the same timeline, sure, but not a feature like this.

We could start the AJA Chocolate Fund. Everybody chip in $5 and we just keep sending another box of chocolates each month. My momma always said Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what improvements those engineers can make when they're hopped up on chocolate!

Walter -
I hate this idea. There is a very good chocolate shop in Grass Valley. It should be a new AJA policy that anyone who registers their AJA product with AJA properly, should receive a FREE box of Chocolate from AJA. The hell with free firmware upgrades - I want candy !

Yes your team certainly does rock, and i am by no means trying to break up the well deserved love fest, but i must bring everyones attention to an adjacent post topic regarding this new SD to SD feature not working for all.

http://forums.creativecow.net/cgi-bin/new_read_post.cgi?univpostid=861212&f...

while it seems that only myself and JeremyG have spoken up regarding this, and i have yet to call you guys directly due to lack of a chance to (but i will try to Wednesday), but for some of us this truly great (when working) feature is just not working at all...

as i posted in my other thread:

"On both the IN and Out, turning on any of the SD to SD conversions, i am not getting a working signal.
I would compare what it looks like to lets say when you send a Pal or HD signal to a monitor which can not process it correctly.
I have reinstalled the software, and flashed the Firmware. I assumed it would work as simply as the Kona's ability to up and down convert HD under the Secondary Format section of the Control Panel."


So Bob, David, and Walter, i take it that you have all tested it out and it works perfectly for you?

Hopefully both Jeremy and I dont have a defect in our Kona2...? There must be something else that is a miss.....

Hello,

Please call our support group when you have a chance. Based on your posts, we today again verified that KONA 2 is working with this SD-SD anamorphic function, so perhaps there is another reason for the issues you are seeing. Our support department will be happy to help, and the feedback and resolution will be good for us to log as well.

Thank you,

Bob
long ago are the days when the post houses offered "candy" to their clients and coworkers.
I am beginning to think you spend way too much time in South Florida.

We now prefer it in the more refined cacao state.
unless you count the starbucks and red bull post junkies out there.

I think that's quite possibly the funniest thing you might have ever committed to disk, Gary.

Long ago you say? I have a complete chocolate bar in my shop. Seriously. If I didn't, clients would complain. We even have YooHoo!

Chocolate, it's always in style!

It has to be the real thing. It can't a cholate "candy" bar. It really has to be fine chocolate from Belgium or Venezuela.

I am so happy for this thread. we have all been able to vent our good nature.



Peace and Love :)

Well, I'm not sure where they make it, but it's some fine Godiva Chocolates. :-)
