Edit to tape just plane funky
Hi All –
I figured I would check here to see if anyone has the same issues as I do! Here are my system specs:
MacPro – dual 2.8 quad, 10GB Ram
FCP Studio 2(ver 6.0.5 foar FCP)
Kona3 running 6.0.3 Software
Everything running SDI via patchbay to/from decks to suite
So my issue is when I open the edit to tape window, it will begin to show a blinking screen that blinks from black, to the open sequence, to green, and then just really starts going crazy, until I drop the sequence into the edit to tape window and lock up the output. It usually doesn’t hinder the output process, but it is definitely sending out a strange signal to our decks or legalizer until the edit is locked in. Our decks always (SRW-5500, or any of the SD decks) reads asynchronous input and freaks out every second or so – and when plugged into our legalizer (Harris DL860), it says unrecognized format. Again, it does this always, no matter what format, up until you drop the sequence into the edit to tape window. This even happened with our LHe, so I’m not sure if it’s a kona thing, or FCP thing.
So, it doesn’t really effect the output, but it can freeze up our legalizer every now and then because of the switching between signals so quickly (it seems it’s switching between a bunch of different signals/formats or something). I’ve posted a pic of it “in action” – I just don’t know if this is a common thing or not!
Thanks for anyone that can offer any help!
