dirty heads or bad tape?
dirty heads or bad tape? For Jan

After Effects - "Perry Mitchell"


From:Edward Martin III
If anyone here uses After Effects, can you tell me if -- as shipped from
Adobe -- it has the capability to export MPEG-2 and if so, is it a
decent-enough-export for DVD authoring?



dirty heads or bad tape? - Jon Burkhart


Well, it could be a little of both. The general wisdom of
people on this list is to use quality tape and not mix
brands. If you do change brands, it's best to use a head
cleaning tape for 5 to 10 seconds to help clean the heads of
debris.
Head clogs don't happen often in DV, but it DOES happen now
and then. And, only at the WORST possible time :-(

dirty heads or bad tape? For Jan - "Crittenden, Jan"


I would then assume that any Panasonic DV with "MQ" in the part number is
dry?
Yes.



PD-150 Memory Stick - "Perry Mitchell"


I was amused by the recent conversation concerning the Memory Stick. You may
be interested to know that is used as a logo source for Network News
'stringer' cameras. Apparently the idea is that the Network company loan out
the cameras and can be pretty hopeful that the burnt-in logo deters sales of
'hot' items to other tv companies. At least I remember reading this was the
idea, perhaps somebody 'in the know' could tell us whether it works out.

PD-150 Memory Stick - "Perry Mitchell"


From: Blain
But the Memory stick pops right out. How would that deter theft? If it
works, I'll try it. I just bought a PD-150 and they are so small and highly
portable - good for me but also good for somebody who wants to snatch it.



VAIO R505BP for editing? - "Perry Mitchell"


From: Randy Quimpo
Has anyone has gotten any editing done on the smallish VAIO R505BP? Better
yet, has anyone had a happy experience editing on the VAIO R505? I have
always had video stuttering problems on my PCG-XG9, and I am wondering
whether the R505 with its Pentium IV 1.13 Ghz does something about that
problem. Its very cheap nowadays in Hongkong - just US with the docking
station included.

Panasonic offers two lubricants one is wet, the PQ series, and the other is
dry, MQ series. Sony has a wet lubricant. It is best not to mix lubricants
and wise to keep your equipment clean.

I can't imagine out of alignment but I can imagine really clogged heads.
You should try to stick with one brand of tape or type of tape. My
preferences would be on the MQ series as there is greater particle density,
less head wear and greater durability. But make your choice and stick with
it.
Hope this helps,

This is out of the Consumer company but if it is a brownish clear plastic it
is wet, if it is a white with blue lid, then dry.

These tapes come in black, blue, gold and white boxes. The cassettes are
gray. The tape (or maybe it's the leader) seems to be a blackish or
purplish color. The plastic box around the cassette is clear, with mostly
black and white liner paper in it. I'm not sure what the "it" is that
you're talking about, but I don't see anything that's either brownish clear
plastic, or white with a blue lid.

Jan!
We're using the same tape that Rik just mentioned. Your description
of "brownish clear plastic it is wet, if it is a white with blue lid, then
dry"
doesn't fit the packaging I'm looking at. There's a lot of this tape being
sold. It would be a big help if we can find if the
lubricant for AY-DVM60EJ is wet or dry.
Thanks.

If the tape cassette does not look like the white tape, then it is not Dry
lubricant.

The wet lubrication is all of the other tapes in the industry including
Sony, which certainly has its proponents on this list. It isn't bad, it
isn't the same as the dry. It is more expensive. So it is all a matter of
trade-offs.

I am not aware of an ME designation, I only know that if the cassette is
white with a blue lid then it is a Dry lubricant.

A few years back they were all wet. Only in the last year and a half has
the technology changed to the extent that the Dry lubricant appeared. The
wet lubrications were different and you shouldn't mix them, and that is true
today. Pick one tape and stay with that.
I hope this helps,
Jan
