No, not yet. There will be support for Avid and FCP. Premiere Pro has very limited import facilities in order to have much use. Most people copy-paste the log of a production in a spreadsheet and keep it handy while editing.
If you select a FPS of 29.97, it is assumed that you're dealing with drop frames. The time code display will take this into account and shows a 'df' indicator on the top-right hand of the display.
If you have two or more Flex Clappers on site, you can sync the time code of the Flex clapper as follows:
- Make sure that blue tooth is enabled on all devices.
- Double tap in the time code field on all devices. The Time code editor dialog will pop up.
- The devices connect automatically using blue tooth (no 'pairing' or other manual action is necessary). Connected devices will show a 'Sync + Update' button.
- Set the desired time code on one of the devices and press the 'Sync + Update' buttons.
- The other devices will sync up and on each device, the Time code editor is automatically closed.
Save a layoutOnce you've created a clapper that you're satisfied with, you can save this as a layout. Popup the toolbar by tapping anywhere and tap on 'New Layout'. A layout is comprised of all cells and functionality and also stores all values of all cells. So, if you want to create a layout that is usable across productions, leave Production, PoD, Director etc fields empty. If you're preparing for a specific production or shoot, you may store the specific values and store it all in a layout. This allows you to quickly create suitable clappers on site.
Creating a clapper based on a layoutPopup the toolbar by tapping anywhere and tap on 'New Clapper'. Select a layout and tap 'Done'. A clapper will be shown according to the saved layout. Note that this new clapper has a locked layout. If you want to change the layout of this new clapper, you'll need to unlock it first. You can unlock the layout by tapping the lock icon in the top toolbar.
You can change the value of a cell by double tapping in that cell. Depending on the type of cell, a specialized editor is presented.
Unlock the layoutFirst, make sure the layout-lock is deactivated. Show the top bar by tapping anywhere and unlock the layout it if necessary. This lock only indicates wether or not layout changes can be made - in order to avoid inadvertent changes in the layout while operating the FC.
Split a rowYou may split a row into more columns by swiping your finger up or down. A row may be divided in up to four cells. Don't worry about precision - FC will find the split closest. The cell that you created by splitting a row, does not have any function assigned to it.
Assign a functionAssigning a function to a cell is easy: press and hold (approx. 2 seconds) the cell, and a function - selection dialog is presented. Select a function a press 'Done'. The function dialog is closed and the cell will display the function.
Join cellsYou may join two neighboring cells on a row by swipe from the one to the other. The resulting cell will get the function of the cell where the swipe originated. Note that the display of cell contents are changed based on the size of the cell. If you need big letters - use bigger cells! You cannot join rows or join cells across rows.
- make sure the layout is unlocked - check the lock icon in top the tool bar
- split cells by swiping up or down
- join cells by swiping left or right
- assign a function to a cell by long pressing in that cell and selecting a function
If you cannot hear a clap, check the following:
- Make sure the head-phone jack is unplugged and unobstructed
- Turn up the volume
