STUPID REPLY FOR A STUPID POSTER (aka Me to Me)
DOH! DOUBLE DOH!.
I've told my two camera assistants that when the RECORD light doesn't come on when switching to RECORD, always check the STANDBY/LOCK lever below the record button.
Not thinking I could've accidently moved that lever when moving from my camera cradle to my desktop (less than 2' away) here at home, I abruptly posted the message.
Do we get any points from ADOBE for being DOH-heads?
No points for being stupid, but full points for acknowledging one's stupidity and educating others! (I am now less stupid than I was a few minutes ago!)
For On Location, go to the top level of the premiere forums:
and you'll see this.
You know, I would give Stanley a few of those points - he's been on a roll lately, and has been lighting up the Encore forum, without proper respect.
Glad that you got things sorted out. Often just the asking of a question will reveal the answer - that worked for me in engineering for many years. Just roll out the drawings, and outline the issue, and suddenly a divine light will shine down, and the answer will be there, where it has always been. The trick is to roll out those drawings on a co-worker's desk, or the "magic" does not work.
