Support Issues (7)
What is the practice for overcoming the 999 events limit of the CMX3600 format? Can we load several EDLs at the same time? How should I organize a VK project?
When using the CMX3600 format, the limit for an EDL is 999 changes per iteration. So if a project exceeds this limit you have to split it into multiple edls. You can load the multiple EDLs into VK and it will run it sequentially.
The organization of the project depends on your convenience (basically the number of iterations you want to work with). You can use 2, 3 or 4 edls in the project or divide it according to chapter/scenes. But the main thing is to organize the project around the limit of 999 events per edl.
VK5 keeps crashing whenever I attempt to import an edl. Why does this happen? What format must I use to generate the EDLs?
The EDLs need to be in the CMX3600 format.
If VK4/VK5 is crashing on import its probably an issue with the EDL format. Make sure the EDLs use CMX3600.
When I tried to run VK, a message was displayed, “You don’t have any licenses in your account, or none of the licenses there have activations available”. What does this mean?
This means that you do not have a valid license in your iLok account to run VK.
If you have purchased a VK license and you are getting this message, this means it has not been deposited in your iLok account. VK licenses are deposited manually. It takes around 24 hours for an order to be processed.
