View Full Version : record a live production with DDR

10-03-2003, 12:24 AM
Is that possible?

Can i set one DDR to record my program out?
Or is there other way to record my live production on disk?
Because after that, i'll need it to add some stuffs and make a DVD project.

You can record Main In, Preview In or Record Out as far as I know... but I seem to remember Andrew detailing a method in the Beta forum to record multiple DV sources at once. I will try to find it and post it here. Here it is cleaned up a bit:

Can we take 3 DV cameras, and capture each DV stream seperatley?
No switching involved, we just want to record each stream simultaneously.

In did this with 2 streems

I did one record in VT Capture
I did the second record in Movie maker 2 simultaneously.
The trick is to not have source you selected in Toaster you want to use In Movie maker.
I tried running more than one Capture panel in VT3 but it keeps show Main in as the source.
Movie maker will only allow me to run one instance.
I wonder If I load Premier If I can do 3
It would be nice if the VT capture would allow several DV sources to be recorded at the same time.
Anyhow synced them up in Ted and all worked great.

Ok, here is a hidden hack to do this ...

If you start recording a DV source it will continue recording, even if you switch away from it. So you can record as many DV sources as you want by selecting them onto main in order, starting a record, then switching to the next one.

But, can I record a live production w/o the DSK?

I'd like to be able to do this so that I can later fix up the overlaid graphics in TEd after the event and use potentially different overlay graphics.

For example, I'd like to be able to have a bunch of logo's and burn-ins augmented with the word "Live" that I'd like to use for an upcoming North America wide live show. However, I'd like to release the DVD for the show without "Live" burnt in everywhere. I hope this is possible given that VT is a studio-in-a-box :)

Please kindly advise.
