Inputting and outputting clips using various VTR devices is the most common means of handling AV material. Smoke allows you to perform numerous VTR-based clip input and output operations in a fast and efficient manner. You can capture individual clips or frames, or log clips for capture using an EDL. To learn about the complete EDL conforming process, see Importing EDL Files and Exporting EDLs. Similarly, the application allows you to output single clips or frames, as well as multiple clips to a VTR device.
Clip input and output general workflow:
- Make sure all hardware devices involved in the clip input and output process are properly configured. If not, the Output Clip and Input Clip buttons will be disabled. See Configuring Hardware For Clip Input and Output Using a VTR.
- Edit the software initialization configuration file to ensure the proper devices and settings are initialized on application start-up. See Configuring Software For Clip Input and Output Using a VTR.
- Do one of the following:
- Carry out additional required procedures, depending on the clip input and output operations that you perform. See:
If you are using an NVIDIA® Quadro® FX 5600 SDI graphics card, Smoke also supports real-time output of certain operations. See Outputting Clips with a Logo Overlay and Clip Output Using Real-Time Deliverables .
