DV start/sop detection problem
on May 12, 2010 at 10:59:02 am

Hi,
Could not find a subject totally related to this exact issue. I have always used the DV start/stop detection with no problem. However, when I can click on a reel to put it in the viewer, I can see all the start stop detect flags. But when I click the reel in the browser to see all the detections, they are not all showing up (they stop around halfway or so). This has only happened on two reels within the same project. Those reels have around 45 dv start/stops when in the viewer... but only about half of them show up in the browser.

Is this a timecode problem? I'm on FCP 6.06, and I shot this on a Canon GL2.

Thanks to all!

Jonny

This sounds like a display problem in the browser. Make a new bin. Put the clip in the bin. Open the bin, make it big, and twirl open the disclosure triangle. Do you see more of them?


All the best,

Tom

Hey Tom, that was it! That fixed it!
I can now see them all and am naming the rest of the start/stops.

Gee, I wonder what would cause the browser to do this?

"off to editland now"

Anyway, thanks for the quick answer.

Hi, I have a Sony DCR_ VX 2100E and final cut pro 5.0.4
we import the movie but we can't go to start-stop detect so we need to work on big long segment
When we try this message appears :
''This movie do not have any breaks in the time/date information
no markers were added ''

if we segment manually it's difficult and long because we need to render every time we move a segment .
What can i do ??
thanks for your help

julia

This happens when the clock is not set in the camera. Without the date/time stamp Final Cut can't detected the start/stop of the shots.

You can add the markers manually at the shot changes and then break the marked segments into subclips.


All the best,

Tom

Sorry Julia, but you are out of luck. HDV had not come to market way back when FCP 5.0.4 was the current version, so of course, it cannot recognize that tape and there's nothing you can do to change that short of upgrading to FCP version 6.

Hello everyone,

i was wondering if the same thing goes with a vtr like a camera's clock; i got some telecined to digibeta then to dv footage (no log files) . so i am trying to create sub-clips for audio sync. but my fcp 7 gives the same error message about the camera clock.

i wonder if something can be done...

thank you.

You have to add the markers manually and convert them to subclips. No start/stop detect without the clock.

All the best,

Tom
