MOJO vs. Other breakouts
on May 19, 2006 at 5:46:07 pm

Looking to add Xpress Pro to my home system, which current runs FCStudio. I'm wondering if the AJA IOla I have will work with Avid. I see that it is basically designed with FCP in mind, but it basically does the same function of the Mojo. Doesn't it?

I'm hoping I can use tat for any non-firewire imports/exports.... Any ideas?

Thanks,
Jason

While I strongly believe Avid will not play with the Io directly, I think you could potentially use it to digitize analog video (BSP? VHS?) to Avid Codec'd QTs that would fast import into Xpress Pro. IF the Io will let you select a codec to use when digitizing, choose Avid DV or Avid 15:1s. The ugly caveat to this is Xpress Pro won't read the embedded TC info on its own. I've seen many posts here and on the Xpress Pro Mac forums over on the Avid site which explain how to use Sebsky Tools (free) to create a bin in FCP, then batch import the QTs into XPro with TC intact.
Of course the Mojo will give you hardware acceleration allowing for more realtime streams, plus the ability to work in D1-sized uncompressed Avid 1:1 resolution for much cleaner titles and chroma keys.

the I/O will NOT work with the AVID software - neither will ANY MANUFACTURER's product - AJA, Blackmagic, Aurora, Convergent Design - NONE WORK. If you want to use a firewire converter (like a Canopus) to go in DV25, that's another story - but WHY ?

Yeah, Avid is very finicky about what they have working with their stuff. Their stuff and ONLY their stuff works with their stuff.

What STUFF ? The stuff dreams are made of, or that other thing that looks like dust ?
