Archiving Clips

The Archive Play feature allows you to automatically play all clips in a playlist on a selected channel and record the output of that channel on a VTR.

To configure Archive Play, you must select the archive channel from the Archive Play configuration tab. You can also change the Archive Black duration on that tab; GV STRATUS Rundown rolls five seconds of black between each archived clip by default. You need to create a black clip if you don’t have one.

  1. Click the Archive Play button to enable Archive Play. A message indicating successful connection to the VTR appears.
  2. Cue a clip to the archive channel. Select the first clip and click the Cue All button on the toolbar.
    Note: If you are archiving clips to a VTR, the first clip cued is the BLACK file.
  3. Click the Play button in the channel window. GV STRATUS Rundown starts the VTR deck recording and a message indicating play has started appears.

After all clips have played, the VTR deck stops recording and Archive Play mode automatically turns off.

You can use the Run Time counter to determine if you have enough room on the VTR tape to record all of the clips in a rundown for archiving.

In Archive Play mode, Run Time displays as current hit time/total run time, including black clip duration. You can also clear the Run Time counter by clicking the Reset Counter button.

GV STRATUS Rundown logs “as run” data in a comma-delimited log file (C:\GV STRATUS Rundown\Log\ArchivePlay.log). Each line includes the Date, Time (start time to the nearest second), VTR Tape Time Code, Rundown Name, Clip Name, Clip ID, and Duration. You can use log data to determine where a specific story starts.

Each time you enable Archive Play, you can choose whether to clear the existing log file or append the new data.
