I hope someone out there can help me with this quickly because I am at a loss.
I am trying to capture DVCpro HD tapes shot in 1080pA24. Every time I capture there are drop frames and the audio goes out of sync. All night I wrestled with the capture settings and pull down removal because I thought that the audio drift was due to incorrect frame rate settings or something wrong with pull down.
I tried capturing through firewire as well as the Kona LHI. I also tried capturing 1080pA24 and I tried doing the pull down after.
Now I believe it is simply the drop frames that are throwing the sync off. Does anyone know how i can fix this? I tried cleaning the deck heads but no luck. What could be causing these drop frames?
8-Core 3.0 Intel Mac Pro, Dual 2 gig G5, AJA Kona SD, AJA Kona 2, Huge Systems Array UL3D, AJA Io HD, 17" MBP, Matrox MXO2 with MAX - Cinema Displays I have a 22" that I paid 4k for still working. G4 with Kona SD card, and SCSI card.
Ugh your right. I finally (after about 12 hours) isolated the problem as a balky firewire port and a slow drive. It really shouldn't have taken so long but I was so focused on thinking it was something I was doing wrong with the settings.
