Progressive Scan video


    Jul 14 2008 | 9:20 am
    What are people using to capture Jitter output to a progressive scan recording device? I just spent a frustrating weekend trying to revive an older piece and get it on DVD without first recording it on a DV camera (interlaced). Doing a NRT recording is possible, but not desirable. Any hardware out there to deal with this?
    Thanks

      For those of you on the edge of your seats, I ended up using Randy Jones' render_node patch (http://2uptech.com/render_node.html), which if you're not familiar with it, is well worth the investment of time and energy. It took a little bit of work to retrofit my performance patch to work with it, but once it was working, I was more or less able to do a realtime performance and then sit back and watch it render to good-quality, non-interlaced video. In case you were wondering, it works fine under Max 5.

      at ucsb we have just build a really badass system with a macpro souped
      up with a 1.2 TB striped raid array for fast read/write. We use the
      Blackmagic Intensity Pro to record DVI out at 720p i.e. 1280x720
      resolution with stereo audio. You hook the DVI out to a DVI->HDMI
      converter cable (~$30) and it shows up in final cut pro.
