Ok i have a question and I KNOW I'm using an OLD machine (boss won't upgrade until this dies) and using OLD settings, but need them for commercial reasons.

About a month ago I started getting color shifts in my COMPONENT when digitizing footage from Beta, all was fine with COMPOSITE though. Don't know what's going on unless my cable is broke somewhere or what.

My next problem is that when I export my finished spots and then burn an MPEG 2 file to load into my Visual Circuits POP player i have a jumpy video. So my WORK around on this was to put my spot on tape, then re-digitize it using 640x480 as the screen size and it ends up working. HOWEVER now all of the sudden when I try to digitize anything, the video box turns yellow as if there is NO INPUT. I can't figure WHY this is happening.

Any suggestions from anyone???

Thanks,


Brad

I think you should run the Media 100 hardware test application. It sounds like maybe your Media 100 board has a problem. And it won´t hurt to check your cables from and to your Media 100 Breakout Box.

Yeah I ran the hardware test and it says everything is fine. I will pull the cable and check it too, however it works fine in the 720x486 setting.

Hmmm, but you said that acquring via Component did not work fine in 720*486, too?!? Can you check your Component input into the system with another device, like a DVD Player?

YES I can. I believe that it did the same thing...just colored bands in the video, kind of like if the head was clogged or something. The first time I saw that a couple of months ago, that's what I thought it was...a clogged head. I'll try the DVD and see what that does. Also just ran the hardware test again and it PASSED.

ABSOLUTELY no video issues with the Composite or DV at 720, but the composite does not work with 640 settings, and of course DV won't either.

So it is either your board, a software conflict (unlikely) or your cables.

1) Try re-seating your m100 cards

2) Make sure you're not using too new a version of Quicktime. I think 7.5 is the limit with 8.2.3a.

Best of luck!

Kind Regards,
Chris
