Controlling External VTRs & ATRs with the MC-20PRO
The MC-20PRO VTR A/B Select in the Capture mode permits using a 2nd digital or
analog VTR or audio deck that can be controlled by the MC-20PRO via the
FutureVideo MC-100 device controller. When VTR B is selected, the transport keys
on the MC-20PRO will control the B deck independently of the A deck. Thus, for
example, VTRs that do not have any firewire control or are slow-responsive with
Firewire control may be used to capture clips. In order to have full Jog &
shuttle control, the assignments of these controls may also be changed by
redefining the “A” VTR jog/shuttle commands as MC-100 commands.
Adobe Premiere PRO using FutureVideo Device Control
FutureVideo provides a special plug-in especially for Adobe Premiere PRO 2 which
allows using one or more external VTRs or Camcorders to control and capture
video from within Premiere PRO 2. This allows using non-fire wire devices (such
as RS-422A, RS-232C, Lanc, Panasonic 5 pin, devices) as well as improving device
responsiveness that do not provide very accurate control via Premiere’s software
Can’t find COM Port for KeyAssigner (Win2k/XP only)
This may be due to the fact that the COM port assigned during USB serial port
installation did not select one of the ports in the range 1-4. To check the
installed COM port, ensure the MC-20PRO is plugged into the computer, and go to
My Computer… Properties..select the Hardware tab… Device Manager.. and expand
the Ports (COM & LPT) and see which USB Serial port assignment number is
assigned. If it is not there at all, retry the
Quick Install for PC procedure again. If it is there but
the port number is larger than 4, change the port # to between 1 and 4 by
following the directions in the Quick Install for PC procedure in the Advanced
Settings dialog box.
MC-20PRO keys or Jog/Shuttle do not Work with Computer
Unplug MC-20PRO power adapter and USB cable. Re-plug in the power first, then
plug in the USB Cable. If this does not work, try a different USB port on the
Computer. If this does not work, then review the appropriate Quick Install
instructions (see MC-20PRO Installation).
