  2. Hi Nick, Wow. thanks. I found it. need to hover. yep. Got it. thanks.
  3. Bottom right, it's a cross and it says "fullscreen" if you hoover the mouse over it.
  4. The L01: Project Manager video cannot be maximize the screen. There is no maximize screen button so the video is so small.
  5. I'm afraid you've learnt the hard way that you should never delete your original camera files. Storage is so cheap nowadays that you could have easily backed up your rushes to a portable/external hard drive before you freed up the space on your camera and laptop. Most professional outfits make multiple backup copies in case a particular backup should fail. You never know when these backups will be needed - possibly corrupted media or a re-edit some months (or even years) later. I'm not sure why you deleted all copies of your camera rushes if you still needed them - maybe you thought you wouldn't need them again after you'd finished editing and outputted your the final edit to a movie file. The recovery software that Emily mentioned relies on the fact that when files are 'permanently' deleted, all that's really deleted is the index to those files on the hard disk or camera card. It's possible to recover these files with the right software, but the problem is that by removing the index to your files means that the space used by these files is then available to be re-written by any other program. It's possible that some portions of the old files remain, but the longer you use the computer, the more likely the chance these files will be overwritten. If you haven't used your camera (cards?) since you deleted the rushes, there's much more chance that you can completely recover your files.
  6. i permanently deleted them from my camera and my laptop so i can film the next part and transfer the next part . it was taking up space ... i dont have copies anywhere.. i have been trying to recover from the recycling bin tried so many things after downloading its not even showing my deleted files...
  7. Let me know if there is any specific test or benchmark you want me to check.
  8. That should definitely do it! I'm looking for the exact same setup as you and I'm quite happy to hear that it serves you well. I can't wait to finally get rid of the old z820 that has been bugging me for years. Any chance to insert normal HDD disks or is that something that belongs to the past?
  9. You can always get a R4i https://www.promise.com/Products/Pegasus/R4i-J2i?utm_source=homebanner&utm_medium=banner&utm_campaign=PegasusR4i-J2i-20191210 but I have no idea what performance we are looking at. I don't really need external sharing at the moment so internal would be fine. Looking at the above option including the Sonnet M2 solution it would give me 2TB SSD (Mac Pro) + 8TB SSD (Sonnet) + a RAID5 Promise R4i 24TB. This backed up to an external 36TB storage as well as off-site + cloud. That should do it. I'm open for any and all suggestions of course! What system are you considering @Nicolas Hanson?
  10. Thanks Michael, I can't wait to get rid of my old system! Do you need external sharing or can you load it with internal HDD's?
  11. Yes, very happy! Just in need for a better monitor (for GUI). I did consider the XDR, but I'm no longer looking at it. Curious about the ASUS ones, tempted by the EIZO CG319x but no clear choices right now. As for storage my older Promise Pegasus is the bottleneck in the system. So considering a Sonnet m2 PCI card for 4x 2TB SSDs from WD paired with an external storage via 10Gbit Ethernet. Not sure here. At the moment the single Vega II 32GB does the job very well. Realtime performance with my 5K R3D footage, very fast renders in pretty much all the work that I do. I would considering adding another card further down the line when I will notice that the system would feel better with a speed bump. Posted some Standard Candle tests earlier: MacPro 20193,2 GHz 16-Core Intel Xeon W48 GB 2933 MHz DDR41x AMD Radeon Pro Vega II 32 GB Resolve 16.1.2.026 using the original file attached with the project in a 1080 timeline. (Some people are starting to test this with R3D files as well as in other resolutions, so results may vary, will post this as well later on. 09 Blur Nodes - 24fps (60 @ 60fps)18 Blur Nodes - 24fps (60 @ 60fps)30 Blur Nodes - 24fps (40 @ 60fps)66 Blur Nodes - 18fps (18 @ 60fps)01 TNR Node - 24fps (60 @ 60fps)02 TNR Nodes - 24fps (60 @ 60fps)04 TNR Nodes - 24fps (39 @ 60fps)06 TNR Nodes - 24fps (28 @ 60fps) You can get discounts if you spend (too much) a lot of money on Apple products. 🙂
  12. And how did you get the discount? And no need for an extra graphic card except what you listed above?
  13. Michael, are you happy with your setup? Good performance?

    Seems like a good spec for a laptop so I'm sure it would be fine to run Avid. If you don't need all the features of the latest 2019 version, you could install an earlier stable version, which would probably run more smoothly. Most modern laptops seem to be able to handle 4K , especially if you're using a half resolution display mode, but will struggle once you start loading up the effects on the timeline. This is especially true once the CPU/GPU start running hot and the laptop can't dissipate the heat fast enough. Not sure with Premiere since I don't really use it, but GPU performance is much more important than it is with Avid. I know they removed earlier versions from the Adobe downloads because of a dispute with Dolby, so you'll need to try it out. Does your laptop really have 512 GB RAM?
  15. I'm not sure I fully understand what you did. When you say 'original files' do you mean you created copies or proxies, and decided you didn't need the original media?
  16. If I understand you correctly, the footage is deleted both from your hard drive and the camera cards? Then recovery software is your solution. There are some risks involved with self-recovery so if the footage is important you should might consider contacting professionals.
  17. Hi please help me with this problem i worked on a project for 2 days filming and editing and when i finally finnished editing part 1 i deleted the original files from my laptop to have more space for my part 2 but now when i go back to all of my work it say media offline... i also deleted the videos from my camera...i dont what to do is there any way to fix the media offline without the files i even spent hours trying to recover my files but no luck please help....

    I just got access to a laptop with the following specs, is that good enough to run Avid and Premiere? 3,1 GHz 512 GB, 4 GB VRAM (2017)
  19. https://bit.ly/2TDUhU4 Rejoignez nous le 28 Janvier à partir de 14h pour des sessions dédiées à tous les créatifs et techniciens en production et post-production ; et en soirée autour d’un cocktail dinatoire au ‘Nord Marais’ privatisé pour l’occasion. -------- Nos spécialistes workflow, Matthieu Straub et Thomas Eberschveiler, dévoileront les nouveaux outils couleur des solutions FilmLight tel que l'outil de correction de déformations optique, le nouveau Hue Angle, la nouvelle version de T-Cam, une introduction à l’API FilmLight, et la gestion des versions VFX dans le Baselight. Nos invités partageront leur expérience de terrain: Dans un premier temps, l’étalonneur Stéphane Azouze présentera le documentaire à venir ‘Woman' bientôt en salles, et discutera de sa collaboration avec les metteurs en scène Anastasia Mikova et Yann Arthus-Bertrand, ainsi que de son travail sur Baselight. Puis Florine Bel, ‘colour scientist’, parlera de son expertise de l’image, avec un focus sur le développement de l’esthétique du film, les espaces couleurs et leurs conversions.
  20. Hey Geoff, not 100% sure what you intend with the sequence - note though that you can just load an image sequence just like a container shot - for the sequence just pass the name of the first file. As for retrieving the full project database in xml form - you would add to the project settings to always generate an xml database on exiting the project or create a so called custom command button and set this to export the full project database in xml. You can do that in the System Settings ==> Custom Commands tab. Check this (rather old) video for a quick explanation: Cheers, Mazze
  21. You can get them 50% off around black Friday. As to accuracy that's so hard to ever judge. Accurate to what? A film print can look so different depending on the settings used when it was processed / scanned. One thing for sure is the Pipeline LUTS look good and they are smooth artefacts wise. The only LUT i've seen that could demonstrate accuracy would be the one created by Steve Yedlin to emulate 5218 printed to 2383. I'm sure there are other accurate LUTS but they'll be propriety LUTS held by post facilities like efilm etc.
  22. Hi Mazze, many thanks for your reply and sorry to bother you during the weekend. That is definitely answering my question about the slot name. For the sequence I wanted to link a shot to a sequence, for tracking purpose that is why I wanted to add a tag called <sequence> into the <shot> tag . but no biggie if it is not a feature, a basic regex on the <name> of the shot will do it! I have one tiny last question that you could for sure help me with (a very stupid one!): I've been looking in C:\ProgramData\Assimilator\Project\<Name_of_the_project> to find the entire project xml file, but only I can find the projectPaths.xml. I was wondering where was it stored by default? because I want to insert new shots within the project and not just as a playlist that is not attached to a project. Does it make sense? Again thank you so much for your precious time and expertise with SCRATCH, this is a fantastic software!
  23. Hi Geoff, yes it is possible to name slots: just use a <name> tag within the <slot> tag (rather than an attribute). As for the sequence: If you mean that you want to use different sections of the same shot, then just add the same file multiple times (as <shot>) and set different in-out in the <handles> section. Hope this answers your questions^^. Greetz, Mazze
  24. Hi all, I was playing with python to be able to go trough the .xml file and I was wondering if we can customize some attributes in the xml/splx? For instance I would like to give a name to a slot, is it possible? an I add extra children tags like sequence in a shot tag? like this example: <slot index="0" name="124_LAC_0030"> <length>212</length> <timecode>00:00:00:00</timecode> <transition> <type>Cut</type> <before>0</before> <after>0</after> </transition> <smode>Once</smode> <shots> <shot uuid="c239468a-ad13-42f6-83ac-6877ae70dbc8" type="4823CDE5-74BB-425B-92E8-0699A027F7C3" slot="0" layer="0"> <file>C:\FILM\124_LAC_0030\COMP\124_LAC_0030_comp_v020\QT\124_LAC_0030_comp_v020.mp4</file> <name>124_LAC_0030_comp_v020</name> <sequence>124_LAC</sequence> <handles> <in>0</in> <out>211</out> </handles> <length>212</length> <size> <width>1920</width> <height>1080</height> </size> <fps>24.000</fps> <timecode>00:00:00:00</timecode> <view> <projection_type>normal</projection_type> <stereo_mode>mono</stereo_mode> </view> <colorgrade> <input> <colorspace>Lin/sRGB</colorspace> <eotf>SDR</eotf> </input> </colorgrade> <MOS>Y</MOS> <metadata> <dataitem> <key>Bit Depth</key> <value>8</value> </dataitem> <dataitem> <key>Compression</key> <value>H.264 High</value> </dataitem> </metadata> </shot> </shots> </slot> Thanks a lot for your answers! Geoff
  25. Cinegrain Pipeline is quite expensive for LUTs that don’t offer a demo or even side by side pictures on the site. Normally $999! How accurate are they to the actual film stocks?
