  1. Hello on set today yet another debate about the naming of the slate for pick-up takes... Not the first nor the last I am pretty sure, especially when working with newcomers continuity person. There seems to be 2 schools of thought: The ones who name it scene/shot/take pickup (like scene 100 shot 2 take 3 pickup after a 100/02/T03 take. Then onward 100/02/ take 4 pickup...). The other ones -including myself - who prefers to name it scene/shot/pickup/take (starting from take 1) as the point is to do a pickup of the shot, not of the take, so take number of the pickup can
  2. I have read the TS-C manual a million times. For some reason I'm just not understanding how to change the clap hold so that it will display the timecode, and not the date. Can someone explain how to change the clap hold, and also if there is supplemental help to understanding the TS-C other than Denecke's manual? Update: I've been informed that this can only be changed on my mixer side of things. When I head to my Time Code Jam pressing the TC key twice, and then I select jam date and jam time, then I sync my slate, it will hold time code only after the clap. That's what I w
  3. Hey folks, I recently saw this slate on consignment at a local camera shop, and I was wondering if any of you out there recognised it. it is fairly inexpensive, but it may be a case of too good to be true. I've done my own search, and have had no luck finding anything in current, or legacy products that even look close. It has a unibody design with an indent in the back as a handle. The T/C input is a 3.5mm plug. it takes 6 AA batteries with an opening panel on the back. There seems to be no brand name of any kind anywhere on it, control wise, there are 4 colored buttons on the back

  5. I've gone over the relevant threads, which were very helpful (and must publicly aknowledge Marc Wielage for his time on email and over the phone, helping me figure out this issue,) but I couldn't find an answer to this particular issue. I have an upcoming shoot that includes playback of a track, which a few 9-year olds (background) will lip-synch to. I've built a striped-timecode playback track, with the appropriate countdown beeps, by summing both stereo tracks into the L channel and TC on the R channel. Regular speed is 23.98 and we're shooting with an Alexa. They also requested a 60
  6. hey all, Im kinda in a pinch, on a small budget. I will be running sound for a single person interview w/ multiple takes this sunday. I have a 788t. Limo out to bnc is the only cable i have to use. Obviously the 5d does not have a bnc in. I dont have it in the budget for a Denecke time slate or timecode buddy. Does anyone have any suggestions on a way to sync my 788t (master) to the 5d without potential for alot of drift.. the good ol hand clap? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks ced
  7. Hey guys, Just wondering which among you do sound reports manually with pen and paper or do them electronically with a laptop, iOS device, etc. (or who doesn't do them at all? I.E. OMB? Reality Shows? etc.) Also wondering how often you put a reference tone file (-20dBFS) in the daily folder for post? Is this still needed usually? Thanks Guys!
  8. For all you timecode buddy users out there, I have made my own custom TC slate to use with MovieSlate or your other favorite slate app. I started by customizing a cheap Ikan slate. I removed the clappers, bought new light weight, yet durable black board and cut it to size. Then I drilled new holes, fastened the clapper sticks via screws to the board, did some other mysterious modifications to improve the quality of the clappers and made the new slate customizable. I am using the survivor military case for the ipad, along with additional screen protection that is replaceable. Th
  9. Email sent to Denecke but I figured I'd throw it out here and see if anyone has an answer (I wasn't able to find any postings via search or google). I have a TS-3 and the clip for the notes plate came off the other day. I was able to fish out the spring and nut so the whole piece is together. I was wondering if it's easy enough for me to open up and pop back on myself or if it's necessary to bring it in. Thanks!
  10. Just been checking different breeds of time code, and I found it cross jammed fine. Should I leave it as is, or make sure it can't be done? Thanks martin
  11. Hey Guys, Back again for some insight. Starting my 3rd feature and we are going to be using the Alexa along with my 788t and an Ambient radio slate with one receiver. We will not be using lockits, so my plan is to have the ambient receiver on the camera and jam the slate from my 788t as much as possible. What mode is the best to work in? If we go with free run or 24 hour run, could i keep the wireless receiver off and just instruct the AC to flip it on for jamming purposes? Should we do a rec run setup? I know the camera guys wont be thrilled about me controlling camera record fu
  12. Anybody know of any manufacturer who makes a whiteboard slate that has a 'Sound' section for the name of the sound mixer along the the Directer and Camera Op? I was thinking I would be well served by having a dumb slate with me as it is frustrating how many camera people and productions claim they don't need one (or don't own one for whatever reason), so I thought I'd get one where I could put my name on it. Or maybe a manufacture that makes them custom ordered? Suggestions?
  13. Hey guys, So, I'm doing some run and gun type shooting with DSLR's tomorrow. I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience using the built in slate on the Nomad. Does it work well enough for quick stuff? If i can eliminate needing the slate, it would be cool. Or is it just easier to old fashion slate it? -w
  14. Got thinking about it be soundslikejustin's post: "A timecode slate, if required, is the property and responsibility of the sound dept, but is used by the camera dept. A traditional clap slate (at least on the jobs i work on) is solely the responsibility of the camera dept. " Why is this? I my mind, if there is a piece of equipment that is used constantly by the camera department, it should be the camera department's. I realize that sound is responsible for timecode, but does that mean we should have to bring the camera dept a slate to use and abuse? I worked on a Union show where A
