CCG's SGI video notes

Saving a DV file on the PC's that the SGI O2 dmedia libraries can read

Using Quicktime Player Pro 4.0, export the movie using the "movie to dv stream" option. It should now load in movieplayer on the SGI. (tested with video - don't know if audio does the right thing).

SGI DV/1394 card and the Sony GVD-900 DV VCR

This is an extremely useful combination for video recording, editing, and use for large training sets of video. The program to run is dvlink (man also avc and raw1394). It can control the deck through the 1394 cable. You must be running 6.5.2 or better.
