I downloaded the demo It runs great and works on the demo PAL footage but when attempting to load any of my own DV footage from final Cut it does not appear in the bin?

Is this a DEMO restriction of is there something else going on?

File > Import Media

An Importing box should pop up to load in the footage, and then it'll appear in your media window. Or atleast it should...

If Hybrid-Halo's method doesn't work, try exporting from Final Cut Pro using a different codec / format. Maybe Chromanator doesn't support the codec that your footage is in.

I used the import command and the file selector comes up, i select a file that was digitized into Finalcut as NTSC DV via firewire and the progress bar flashes across and then there is nothing in the media window.

Huh? I'll try it again. Don't really want to use any codec other than DV, I'm sure the DV codec is supported? So far this program appears to be very useful and very well layed out. Great work.

Just tried it again with different footage and I get the same results. Is the program attempting to load the clip into ram?

Do your files have proper suffixes? ie, .mov or .dv on the end of them. Files need to have proper suffixes to be identified properly. If you make sure your files are suffixed correctly, it should work fine.

Let us know if you have continued problems.

thanks,
adding .mov suffix did the trick.
