re: 3 perf panic
The best way of dealing with 3 perf that I've found is to use the Metaspeed.
With somewhat minor Rank modifications, the Metaspeed can
do the necessary math to generate tach pulses for TLC and daVinci, TLC,
Keycode readers, and mag machines. This allows you to use a normal
4 perf gate for a 3 perf job. I believe Evertz has Keylog support for 3
perf , and I assume Aaton also supports it. There is, what seems a first
glance, a somewhat" nightmarish" spec for a 3 perf Keycode sequence. I seem
to remember the sequence repeating every one and one third feet (it's been
a while since I looked at it). Audio syncing with Nagra is the same as
always, whether you are chasing time code or using serial control from TLC
. If mag (or another biphase driven machine) is the audio source, the
Metaspeed can provide the correct pulses.
