Avid Express Pro 5.X and HD Capture

hdfeature.gif


Now that we have the ability to edit in either High Definition or Standard Definition we now have more settings to choose before we capture. The most important setting is the Video Resolution Setting. The great thing about Avid Express Pro is that you can combine SD and HD in the same timeline as long as the frame-rate is the same. The first thing you need to do is determine the format that you are going to capture. You then need to decide if you are going to capture in OMF or MXF format. The formats are wrappers for your media files, your choice will not affect quality but you need to be aware of the programs you may need to open these files in. A good rule of thumb is OMF for all of your SD and MXF for HD. To switch between these formats you need to go to your settings tab in the project window and double-click media creation. Now select the media type tab and this is where you can choose your format. This is just an intro to what your different types of formats and what they are about.
