How does FCP handle 23.98 DV Files?

Hi All,
Has anyone Edited using the DV-NTSC 24P (23.98fps) Easy Setup?
1) How does FCP handle this video connected to a DV Converter Box like the Canopus ADVC-110?
2) Does it actually play at 23.98fps on a monitor connected to the DV Converter Box?
3) Does it get converted to 29.97fps somewhere in the process before it gets displayed?
4) is it displayed at 29.97fps or is it really being displayed at 23.98fps?
these are things that I am not sure of.
sorry if I posted this message a couple of times. I didn't know that hitting the "Tab" Button posts the message, I thought it would just function like the Tab in a normal Text editor and indent a line. But here it doesn't.
thanks

Hi,
Thanks for the feed back. I guess I should fill in the caps a little.
*DESCRIPTION OF ISSUE:*
One of our main Clients Disney, is migrating to a Tapeless Workflow based on ProRes HQ 422 @ 23.98fps. From here on out, they will only send us ProRes HQ 422 1920x1080 files @ 23.98fps and they want us to Edit every project we work on for them @ 23.98fps. At the moment, it doesn't sound like they care if we Edit our projects in ProRes HD or some SD format, but the important thing to them is that we edit @ 23.98fps.
PROBLEM:
Our facility doesn't have the infrastructure to support 25 machines accessing ProRes HQ 422 files. Our facility was built to support DV NTSC @ 29.97fps and we have been working this way fairly well, for a number of years.
SOLUTION:
I am trying to find a way to continue to us our current equipment and satisfy Disney's request to work on all their projects at 23.98fps, starting from 1920x1080 ProRes HQ 422 files @ 23.98fps. So, it was my hope to be able to take the 23.98fps ProRes files and export them to 23.98fps DV NTSC. This way we wouldn't have to reconfigure our entire Facility (which would cost a couple hundred Thousand dollars).
My approach was to:
1) Use Media Manager to render a new DV NTSC file at 23.98fps, which it does pretty well for the most part. It keeps the Timecode consistent between the two files (very important), but doesn't allow you to Letterbox the 16x9 video in the 4x3 frame, it just stretches it to fill the entire 4x3 frame (not so good).
2) Then import the newly created DV NTSC 23.98fps file into a FCP Project based on the DV NTSC 24(p) 23.98fps EASY SETUP. Which works well. No problems there.
3) Then Play the file in FCP out through a Firewire based Canopus ADVC-110 DV Converter connected to a SD Sony Monitor. This seemed to worked fine also.
The fact that it plays is great!!!! But, that brings up the question, is it really playing a 23.98fps?
My understanding of Standard Definition and specifically DV NTSC, is that it can only be displayed at 29.97fps, it doesn't support 23.98fps natively. So the fact that it played when I tested it got me thinking that I may be missing something here and DV NTSC and other SD equipment (like the Sony SD Monitor) can playback/support 23.98fps SD video. But that goes against everything I know up to this point!!!
Have I been wrong all this time?
1) Can SD Video and DV NTSC Video be displayed at 23.98fps?
2) Or is it getting converted to 29.97fps somewhere in the process before it is getting displayed?
3) If it is getting converted back to 29.97fps, then where is it getting converted, FCP or in the DV Converter Box?
I am sorry I went a little long on this email, but it is a problem that will have great influence on they way we work for a couple of years to come!!
Thanks for your input!!

  • How does APEX create and save new files. What extension does it save in?

    Hi can someone help me with this question?
    How does APEX create and save new files. What extension does it save in?
    Cheers!
    VJ

    It's really too bad we can't see VJ's face when the concept sinks in. This is one of my favorite moments when teaching APEX classes. Most people love it, some people don't. If nothing else it really proves the power and performance of the Oracle database. Each page view can generate 40+ queries, yet on the average system this takes less than .04 seconds.
    Keep in mind there are no undocumented features or "Oracle Internals" that the APEX team uses to achieve this performance, just sound database design. With every feature they add they evaluate how it will be used and design the tables and indexes to most efficiently answer the query. Sometimes this means going against "purist" normalized principals.

  • How does Aperture handle file structure

    I have been working with iPhoto since its infancy and have one big issue with it, namely that it is such a closed system. I dislike that everything needs to be imported and exported to use it elsewhere, clogging up my computer with all these duplicates. Does Aperture handle that better? I spent 2 hours reading different reviews and discussions and for some reason, nobody seems to discuss exactly that, maybe most people don't mind to have a vault structure? If so, how do you handle sharing files outside of the tools like Facebook export etc that are offered?
    Thanks ~ Barb

    namely that it is such a closed system.
    It's not. It's a Database and this
    everything needs to be imported...
    is a characteristic of databases. This
    and exported to use it elsewhere
    is just not true if you use any of the very many ways that the OS and other applications integrate with iPhoto. I rarely, if ever, exported from iPhoto when it was my primary Photo app.
    The point is not to defend iPhoto, but if the database aspect of it irritates you then run a mile from Aperture. Everything has to be imported and can be accessed only in (pretty much) the same ways as they can be in iPhoto.
    how do you handle sharing files outside of the tools like Facebook export etc that are offered?
    Here's a stock answer I use over on the iPhoto forum. You can pretty much swap the word 'Aperture' for iPhoto:
    There are many, many ways to access your files in iPhoto:
    *For Users of 10.5 and later*
    You can use any Open / Attach / Browse dialogue. On the left there's a Media heading, your pics can be accessed there. Command-Click for selecting multiple pics.
    Uploaded with plasq's Skitch!
    +*(Note the above illustration is not a Finder Window. It's the dialogue you get when you go File -> Open)+*
    You can access the Library from the New Message Window in Mail:
    Uploaded with plasq's Skitch!
    If you use Apple's Mail, Entourage, AOL or Eudora you can email from within iPhoto.
    If you use a Cocoa-based Browser such as Safari, you can drag the pics from the iPhoto Window to the Attach window in the browser.
    *If you want to access the files with iPhoto not running*:
    For users of 10.6 and later:
    You can download a free Services component from MacOSXAutomation which will give you access to the iPhoto Library from your Services Menu. Using the Services Preference Pane you can even create a keyboard shortcut for it.
    Other options include:
    1. *Drag and Drop*: Drag a photo from the iPhoto Window to the desktop, there iPhoto will make a full-sized copy of the pic.
    2. *File -> Export*: Select the files in the iPhoto Window and go File -> Export. The dialogue will give you various options, including altering the format, naming the files and changing the size. Again, producing a copy.

  • [solved] How does Pacman handle config files?

    Hi,
    I've read that Pacman handles config files by comparing their hashes in 3 different statuses.
    (which are in current status, new status, and original status)
    The current config file's hash is easily obtained, and so does the new ones'.
    But how does Pacman get the original one's hash?
    Can someone tell me, please?
    Thank you, and happy new year,

  • How does Photostream handle duplicate file names?

    My sister has an iPhone and an iPad, and takes photos with both. Her husband has an iPhone, and also takes photos. They have a PC. Photostream is enabled on all of these devices.
    Now, since all three devices use a simple sequential file numbering system (IMG_XXXX), they will produce duplicate file names.
    This, of course, becomes an issue when you consolidate the photos taken by multiple iOS devices in one folder as is done by Photostream on PC.
    Which brings me to my question: How does Photostream (on PC) handle duplicate file names? Does it simply overwrite, keeping the one with the latest date, or what? Does it inform the user in any way?
    Oddly, I have seen little discussion on this. It really seems like Photostream is pointless

    FOLLOWUP. Below, is a clearer explanation of my concern/question.
    My sister has an iPhone and an iPad, and takes photos with both. Her husband has an iPhone, and also takes photos. Photostream is enabled on three devices. They have a PC. iCloud Control Panel for Windows is installed, and Photostream is enabled.
    Now, since iOS devices use a simple sequential file numbering system (IMG_XXXX.JPG), when you consolidate these images into one folder as is done by Photostream on PC, you will sooner or later encounter two (or more) different photos that have the same file name. Different photos with the same file names can/will happen when you consolidate images taken with different iOS devices into the same folder.
    Which brings me to my question:
    How does Photostream (on PC) handle duplicate file names that are not duplicate images?
    Q: Does it simply overwrite, perhaps keeping the one with the latest date taken? In this case Photostream will not contain all of the photos it should.
    Q: Or, does it do something to create a unique filename when it encounters a duplicate file name? For example: IMG_0001, IMG_0001(1), IMG_0001(2)
    Oddly, I have seen no discussion on this. I hope someone can help me understand how Photostream handles this so we can decide how best to use Photostream, or if it is a feature we want to disable.
    Thank you,

  • How does FCP Pro X handle mixed frame rate video clips?

    My camcorders are by Canon and both can shoot 50i or 25p. Normally I shoot 25p to avoid interlace artefacts. As I understand it, FCP Pro X conforms the clips to match the initial clip in the storyline. But what would be the outcome if I included clips from another camcorder that only offered 30p? Would those clips be converted to 25p if the initial clip was 25p. Or, would the 25p clips be converted to 30p if the initial clip was 30p?
    Assuming I made a movie entirely out 30p footage, would that be uploaded to You-Tube at that frame rate?  If my movie is 25p is that converted to 30p for You-Tube upload? Could I otherwise export a QT movie to my desktop at 30 fps or any other frame rate?
    It seems that the 25p setting on my camcorders still means that the recording is made as 50i but repackaged somehow. Can anyone explain please?
    Yes, I am in the UK in a PAL environment.
    AW.

    But what would be the outcome if I included clips from another camcorder that only offered 30p? Would those clips be converted to 25p if the initial clip was 25p. Or, would the 25p clips be converted to 30p if the initial clip was 30p?
    Subsequent clips will be converted to match the project settings created by the first clip into the timeline. I don't know how well FCP does this timebase conversion from NTSC to PAL frame rates or vice versa. Compressor would probably do a better job. There is also Standard Conversion software from Graeme Nattress that will do an excellent job.
    YouTube will take either. You would need to use Compressor to change the frame rate on export, though you don't want to do that unless you absolutely have to.
    Most consumer cameras do not actually shoot 25 separate frames when they're set to 25p. They shoot what's called segmented frames, two fields just as the 50i setting, only the two fields are supposed to be identical. That's the theory; in practice some cameras do this better than others.

  • How does iphoto handle files exactly?

    using the program spring cleaning, i found all images outside of my iphoto library and imported them into my library. my question now is, if i run the search again, finding all images not in my iphoto library, can i safely delete those images since they have been copied into iphoto or are they still needed as a reference for the program? how does iphoto work with files exactly? i know there's an "original" and a "data file", but where are each of these stored? when a photo is imported to the iphoto library, does it make a copy of the original and the data file or what?

    ryanfg
    Unless you changed the default setting in the iPhoto preferences, then if a photo is in the iPhoto Window then it's in the iPhoto Library Folder.
    A Note about the iPhoto Library Folder:
    In this folder there are various files, which are the Library itself and some ancillary files. Then you have three folders
    Originals are the photos as they were downloaded from your camera or scanner.
    (ii) Modified contains edited pics, shots that you have cropped, rotated or changed in any way.
    This allows the Photos -> Revert to Original command - very useful if you don't like the changes you've made.
    (iii) Data holds the thumbnails the the app needs to show you the photos in the iPhoto Window.

  • How does FCPX handle audio?

    Still working on getting audio exported to an AAF, and having problem doing this.  So I need help understanding how FCPX is handling my audio.
    When it's on the timeline, is it being conformed to the frame rate of the video? 
    When audio is exported, does FCPX force it to conform to the video frame rate in the project settings, audio properties, or both?  Or does it allow the audio to export at whatever rate the original media is at?
    I export an XML from FCPX, then open that with X2Pro and it makes an AAF file, but a report tells me that   "Conform rates are not supported. The Conform rate at 01:04:49.23 has been ignored."  So when I go to that timecode, all I see is video at 24p and a detached audio piece at 23.98.  Why are these different?  How would I fix?

    FINALLY!  Thank you God, this issue is resolved.  Here's what I learned and had to do in case anyone else may be wrestling with this issue.
    Apparently, FCPX handles audio like this:
    • Adjusts varying frame rates to match the project property,  e.g. if you drop footage that is 24, 30, and 60 all on a 24p timeline, FCPX makes them fit into 24p, it does not tell you or show you this, it just does it automatically
    • It may handle detached audio a little differently.  For instance, I had a 24p timeline, and there were 39 detached audio clips that were 23.98 because they were not attached to any video, so I had to reimport and sync, see the workaround below.
    The X2Pro, program to convert FCPXML to AAF, spits out a report showing where all the conform errors were, 39 total, but still required calculating where exactly it was because it didn't identify precisely by frames.  Once the offending detached audio clip was located, I then Expanded the Audio Components to see both the original and synchronized audio.  Next I had to go find the external audio that had been synced, then do a replace edit on the old synchronized clip.  This made the audio's video frame rate 24 and took away the conform errors!  Then I had to sync up  the new detached audio clip manually with the video clips above it. 
    Also, to get out to an AAF with X2Pro, it does not support retiming, so I had to strip out 22 instances of retiming.
    Whew, glad that's all over!  Hopefully this AAF will be pristine for my audio post supervisor to bring into ProTools!
    Thank you all for your help and input along the way!

  • How does client download Applet dependencies jar files?

    I made an Applet which dependencies on several jar files. I think when client browser access this applet, it will download these dependencies. I want to know where these dependencies are located in client machine, will these dependencies are downloaded once. If so, how does the browser handle duplicated downloaded issue.
    thanks.

    It is no business of client code (read 'your applet') to know the location where it is downloaded. The browser will often cache the dependant Jar's, but that is up to the browser and its settings.
    For more reliable caching, launch the applet using webstart (either embedded, in 1.6.0_10+ JRE, or free floating).

  • How does JRE handle PKI certificates?

    I've got a bunch of Macs, all running OS X 10.10.2 and JRE 8u31  Most, no problems.  But I've got two on which Java complains about the certificates of at least one web site.  In the browser, the cert is just fine.  Trusted, etc.  Java doesn't think it's trusted.  I didn't have to do anything with keystores or truststores on any of them... install java and it "just works".  So I have no idea what or how Java is handling certs differently than the OS.

    If you mean hal, then at some point, it creates a data file /media/.hal-mtab, which on old installations (that went through a lot of ext media mounts), saves the dir, even if hal is removed. Of course, a separate question is why does hal contain /media. But otherwise, Allan is right: there is no natural good way of fixing this pacman behavior.

  • MappedByteBuffer - How does it handle the physical memory?

    Hello!
    I have some question regarding the java.nio.MappedByteBuffer class. I am wondering how does it exactly handle the physical memory.
    As first, I guess when I map a file into the the memory it does not mean that the whole file is being read into the physical memory. Am I right?
    My second question is, if I map more files into the memory, is there a real danger that I will get an out-of-memory exception? Is available any official resource about the memory management of this class?
    And my third question is, what is more efficient way at all, to use the MappedByteBuffer class or to use a FileChannel?
    I am looking forward to your replies!

Java has no control over how the OS does this, nor should it need to.
    As first, I guess when I map a file into the the memory it does not mean that the whole file is being read into the physical memory. Am I right?True, map != read or what would be the point.
    My second question is, if I map more files into the memory, is there a real danger that I will get an out-of-memory exception? An out of memory ERROR occurs when you run out of heap space. If you create enough file maps you are likely to run out of file handles or some other resourfe before you run out of heap.
    Exception != Error.
    Is available any official resource about the memory management of this class?Which class?
    And my third question is, what is more efficient way at all, to use the MappedByteBuffer class or to use a FileChannel?It depends on what you are doing.
