  • Beginner's question

    I recently finished a DV project on Edius Broadcast, but when I printed to tape (DV) the first few frames were lost. I reprinted it and the same thing happened. What is the best way to insert a black "pre-roll" at the beginning of the project to avoid this problem ?

    You can futz with deck preroll, but you have the best solution already. I tend to stick 10 sec. of black at the beginning of every project. If a tape is going to have a problem, it's usually at the beginning or end.

      simply move timeline content to right to create black in front, then set in and out and Bob is your uncle

      also, set outpoint around 10 sec after project ends

        Along with the excellent advice given you can place a dissolve on the first clip to bring it in softly if you want that look :)
