NoteSmoke can only read VTR archives, it cannot create nor write to VTR archives.
You can create a VTR archive for clips of any resolution supported by your video board and VTR device. To archive and restore from a VTR archive, your clips FPS, resolution and bit depth need to match your VTR tape device settings.
When you change projects without exiting Flame Premium, the video timing selected at start-up applies to the project you are switching to.
Header Information Slate
All VTR archives contain a Header Info Slate, which is a single frame providing information about the archive. Located in the archive before the table of contents, the Header Info Slate provides information such as:
- Name of the archive
- Name of the Online Table of Contents (OTOC)
- Name of the workstation where the archive was created and name and version of the Autodesk application used for archive creation
- Start timecode
- Creation date and time
- Modification date and time
- Minimum size of the clip library buffer (in MB) required to restore the archive
