Lock and Load X natively supports Multi-cam clips and has a batch processing option to stabilize many clips at once

AV Output in the Window menu would be my guess.
Thats how I send video to my HDMI display.

I realize this is a new feature introduced with Catalina but can someone tell me if how to send the video only (using Sidecar) to my iPad connected to my iMac Pro? I seem to be able to put the viewer pane on my iPad using Workspaces but then it disappears from my main iMac workspace. I'm interested in having the viewer/browser/timeline show on my iMac Pro and the video only on my iPad as seen in this image from the Sidecar white paper.

I am following the Help recommendations to the letter, trying to create a de-interlaced compressed .MOV file from a 422 ProRes which is a digital capture from a HiDef DV tape using an Atomos Ninja. The ProRes file is interlaced, even though it showed 1080p on the screen of the recorder.

I then tried to create a H.264 .mov SD file with de-interlacing, but no such luck.

Perhaps someone would like to test how to do this successfully, using a short file segment, and report back?

Thanks, in advance,

If the interlace was recorded as progressive, wouldn't the interlace be baked in ?
as in: it recorded both field on 1 progressive frame.
Does it show as interlace in Media Info?
How about : select clip->inspector->field dominance override->upper first ? in FCP X
Or the deinterlace checkbox ?

If you blade what needs to be taken out, then shift delete it, your TC will stay accurate until you're done as it will put a gap clip in it's place.

Running HighSierra
It first gave me an error message about: something.something.icloud.something
Then after that it gave me the developper message.

Maybe it as something to do with the fact that is was the first time I used Automator since Lion?

Anyway, It's working fine.

Thanks for the tip

Really cool. I often start multiple export job and go home, wait for the export to finish before I can upload it to an ftp from remote access to my work iMac.

On my test run, it gave me the "not from a trusted developper" message.
Just had to right click on the app and tell it to open it even if not from a trusted developper and then it's working.

Not a bug
Compound clip is like another sequence so not showing the orange bar.
Kind of annoying, but thats how it always been.

Firewire is the bottleneck, get a USB 3 drive

You need to manually put the QuickTimeMPEG2.component into Macintosh HD--->Library--->QuickTime for quickTime 7 or MPEGStreamclip to open mpeg2.
For me it doesn't play smoothly in QT7 and MPEGStreamclip is having display issue but it does work.
