some of you might already know of this but I just stumbled on to it recently and thought I’d share.
You can record Live clips straight from Preditor just as you would in Air Command.
Right click on the pink Timeline button that is under the right hand side monitor of the Preditor interface and choose TM Record. click on the appropriate video source and Audio channels. Make sure you activate the V A1 A2 buttons. Press play on the deck and record on the preditor VTR and off you go. You even get a timer to know how long you record.
Once you have what you need press stop an drag the clip icon to a bin.
Now you can use it on a timeline. If you don’t drag the clip icon to a bin after recording it doesn’t get stored properly and is not usable on a timeline.
