- Tape Name box
Select an option to determine how the tape name is set for the imported clips.
|Select: ||To: |
|Enter Tape ||Activate the Tape Name field so that you can manually enter the tape name. When selecting multiple files for import, this tape name is used for all imported files. |
|Tape from Filename ||Use the name of the imported file as the tape name. |
|Tape from Directory ||Determine the tape name from the detected directory structure. A Level field appears below the Tape Name box. Use this to configure the relative path to the directory from which the tape name can be determined. |
|Tape from File Header ||Read the tape name from the header of the imported file. |
- Level field
Select an option to set the relative file path to the directory from which the tape name can be determined. Although it is available for all file types, the Level field is specifically designed to work with the directory structures that are output by film scanners. A typical file structure would look like: ./<tape>/<resolution>/clip.######.dpx
. In this case, selecting Up 2 Levels in the Level field identifies the directory that corresponds to the tape name (./<tape>
). Enabled if Tape Name is set to Tape From Directory.
- Tape Name field
Set the name to use as the tape name of the imported clip. Enabled if Tape Name is set to Enter Tape.
- Timecode box
Select an option to specify how the timecode information for the clip is set.
|Select: ||To: |
|Timecode from Header ||Set the source timecode of the imported clip based on the timecode information in the image file header. |
|Timecode from File Name ||Use a numerical filename (for instance, 100000.dpx) and translate it into timecode for the resulting clip (based on the selected framerate ). This is useful when working with files that do not have embedded timecode. |
- Rate box
Select how the framerate is determined. Select Auto to use the framerate specified by the imported clip; if the clip specifies no framerate, it uses the one of the project. Select Select rate to set the framerate using the Framerate box.
- Framerate box
Select the frame rate of the imported clip. Enabled if the Rate box is set to Select rate.
- Drop Frame button
Enable to have use a drop frame mode. Disable to use non-drop frame mode. Enabled if the Rate box is set to Select rate.
- Clip Name box
Select how the clip is named when the file is imported.
|Select: ||To: |
|Enter Clip Name ||Activate the Clip Name field so that you can manually enter the clip name. When selecting multiple files for import, this name is used for all imported files. |
|Clip Name from File Name ||Use the name of the imported file as the clip name. |
|Clip Name from Header ||Read the clip name from the header of the imported file. |
- Clip Name field
Enter the name to use when importing the clip. Enabled if Name is set to Enter Clip Name.
- Include YUV Headroom
Enable to keep the YUV headroom information during clip import. Only applies to 10-bit YCbCr-material found in some mp4 and QuickTime files. Disabling this option for clips that use the headroom (usually clips from cameras) results in clips with clamped black and whites. Enabling this option for clips that do not use the headroom (usually clips from Final Cut Pro) results in an imported clip with lowered contrast.
- Aspect Ratio box
Select the aspect ratio of the frames used to import the file and override the aspect ratio stored in the file as specified. You might need to change the aspect ratio as many applications erroneously write a pixel aspect ratio of 1 (a square pixel), even for formats that have non-square pixels (NTSC, PAL).
Viewing the clip in the Player with the specified aspect ratio requires that you enable . The Previewer in the MediaHub always displays clips with the specified aspect ratio.
Note that the application internally uses a frame ratio, not a pixel ratio. To specify a pixel ratio, you must select either Square Pixels or Enter Pixel Aspect Ratio; Aspect Ratio from Resolution and Aspect Ratio from Header are interpreted as frame ratios.
- Aspect Ratio field
Set the ratio used to define the frame or pixel aspect. Affects the frame aspect if the Aspect Ratio box is set to Enter Frame Aspect Ratio. Affects the pixel aspect if it is set to Enter Pixel Aspect Ratio.
