  • HDV Editing

    I just purchased the Canon XH-A1. Recently I purchased Edius Broadcast to progress into the HD world. Is there a preferred method of digitizing HDV footage?

    YES
    Capture using Edius and let it convert the files to CanopusHQ AVI, providing your computer has enough grunt and it will save you so much pain.
    If your computer is not up to it, capture in HDV (mpeg) and then set up a watch folder, drag the files into it and they will be converted.
    Takes a while but worth it
    CanopusHQ AVI! Edius should be set up when installed to do it automatically, does it on the fly so it is effectively transparent

      Help

      Guy,
      I'm in the same boat as you somewhat. I also just purchased the XH A1 and am dealing right now with a builder to get me the computer I need to work with hdv...which I am also very new to. I spend hours researching everything but it all still seems very confusing. I guess it may be that way until I sit down and actually get aquainted with it all.

      Here's my dilema...and I think I may have even posted another thread about it a couple months back but figured you were someone who just may have gone through the same process so I just thought it'd be best to get yours or others opinions. Because I'm so new to the world of hdv, I just want to make sure the specific machine I'm ordering is going to adequate.

      NLE Q6600
      • Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 64Bit 8MB Cache CPU
      • 4GB DDR2-667 RAM
      • 250GB SATA Boot Hard Drive + 500GB SATA Capture Hard Drive + 500GB SATA Editing Hard Drive (In removable bay)
      • NVidia 512MB 9600GT PCI Express Video with Dual Display (VGA/DVI)
      • Lite-On DH-4B1S Blu Ray Burner
      • 10/100/1000 Network card (Gigabit)
      • 6 USB 2.0 Ports / 3 Firewire 1394 Ports
      • Keyboard & Mouse
      • Windows XP Professional
      • System Restore DVD
      • One Year Parts/Labor Warranty
      • Card Reader

      The price I was quoted for this set up was around $2300 and it seems quite a bit lower than any other builders I've looked at for a similar set up. I also plan on purchasing the Edius NX version w/ PCI Express, EDIUS NX Baseboard, and HD/SD Component & MPEG-2/4 Module. (The builder is not a reseller for Canopus so I'm adding this on my own) I've been confused by the different versions of NX but as far as I understand, this is the only version I've seen that offers the realtime component out. I also should mention I've only used an older version of Edius a couple times and still work primarily with the old Storm2...so this would explain my confusion with the different versions of NX.

      It all looks good to me but I am the most NON-technical person when it comes to computer systems. I can edit but I just don't know crap about computers. Any thoughts or opinions on this system would be greatly appreciated. I'm very close to making the purchase but I wanted to get an idea from Edius users if this seems like a good computer for working with hdv.

      Thanks in advance.

      Matt

          Luzcanon,

          What kind of motherboard are you getting? EDIUS NX has two versions - one for PCI-X (64bits PCI) and one for PCI-Express. The PCI-X is better (if your motherboard supports that). AND you need one 32 bits PCI slot for the Component out board.

            From an earlier conversation, he had said it was a Gigabyte board with the Intel P35 chipset...I have to find out specifically I guess. He had said it would support the PCIe version. You mentioned the PCI X being better...what is really the difference between the two versions?

              He meant that the pci-x board is better if you have that slot on your motherboard. That way the pci express slots are free. Both cards are equal in what they do as far as speed. The pci express is a newer card that also has an encoder and requires 2 pci express 1x slots. The pci-x card is an older version that also requires 1 32bit pci slot. Keep in mind neither one of these cards 'accelerate' anything. They just provide a very clean realtime output to monitor. The computer processing power and hard drive throughput is what makes it go.
              You have to decide which is best for you.

                Also, in conversation with members of this forum and elsewhere, it would appear that problems that are reported in the PCI-e version are absent in the PCI-X version. Although PCI-e is younger, it does not mean it is more stable. Only server class motherboards are equipped with PCI-X.

                  Yes I have read that also.
                  Perharps this is due to the sum of favours : NX PCI-X + MB (WS type).

                  In any case, my NX PCI-X works like a charm !

                    Are there problems with NX PCI-e plugged into MB "pro" , type WS - Workstation ?
