  • 1.  Carbonite Ultra Clip Store capacity

    Posted 11 days ago

    Hello people of Ross,

    I want to confirm something before I have a department go down a path. I may be getting a bunch of animated lower 3rds that I will key via chromakey. So a bunch of short mp4 files that I will cue and play using Custom Controls. In my head, this is an easy, doable workflow. Yes? 

    I assume the capacity is whatever the USB can handle? I know the media player has a memory limit but I don't see that indicated for the clip player. 

    Thanks!

    (note to Les ... oh boy. I am going down the Ross chromakey path again. Tell David I said hi).

    Hi Danny, you are correct, the capacity of the USB dictates max lengths. If your heading to NAB I would be happy to give you a 'refresher' on the nuances of the Chroma key. Of course Les can do the same. :)

    Thank you. And no ... after many trips to NAB, I'm done! I know how much work goes into it for companies like Ross. Good luck! :)

    Yet another question:

    I noticed that when cueing clips in Clip Player via Custom Control, the player in Dashboard doesn't update. The clip cues, but the player stays empty. You can't really confirm that you have the right clip loaded.

    Feature? Bug?

    I am seeing this as well ... I will have them look at it.

    I don't see the thumbnail update with the correct clip .. but the Time Duration and Bar is updating..

    PS you can click on the progress bar to jump to a point with the content viewable and then press the Capture Thumbnail to generate a thumbnail for you.
