Re: multiclip problem (using Kona 3)

both Warren and I have observed (his thru shared storage, mine thru local storage) that with DVCProHD clips (in my case 3), you get dropped frames, however, if you just play back 3 streams of DVCProHD (or more), there is no issue. IT's multiclip ! Warren properly suggested going into User Settings and turning off "abort on dropped frames", and he was correct- this is how we are working for multiclip at "higher resoutions" than DV25. I am now told that OS-X 10.6 and FCP supports multithreading (using all the core processors, not just one), and this is no longer an issue.

I am not experienced in multiclip. As I speak to others that do this all day long, it is apparantly a common practice to do an "offline" multiclip - with offline photo jpeg or DV25, and then redig back to DVCProHD or ProRes422HQ for the media that you have selected. I ASSUMED that with larger fibre systems (like XSAN) or
simply local storage, doing multiple cameras all live at full HQ resolution would be no issue.
