Easy Video Storage Calculator

COW Blogs : walter biscardi's Blog : Easy Video Storage Calculator
Share on Facebook

One question we see a lot on the forums, in fact there was another one today, is "How much storage will I need for X amount of video?" Our friends at Digital Heaven have created a wonderful free widget for those of you on Mac OS 10 computer systems for this very thing.

Call VideoSpace, all you do is enter the video format and the amount of footage you have (in hours and minutes) and voilá! You get exactly how much storage it will take to hold that amount of footage. And keep in mind, this is just the raw camera footage, you also need to factor in space for graphics, renders and audio files. It's a great little tool and I highly recommend it!

Timecode Calculator
by walter biscardi

My favorite is this widget. It looks really good, and does exactly what it's supposed to do. Gotta love that combination.

I used that calcuator recently and it does exactly what you need it to do.  We were cutting a 720p/60 project which Final Cut Pro only displays in Non Drop Frame.  But the original SD cut of the project was done in 29.97 SD Drop Frame so some of my captures were up to 1 minute off.  By typing in the original DF timecode of the capture points, I was able to find the exact NDF timecodes for the recapture and everything was spot on.

Say Walter, great idea for a segment on your spectacular Apple-oriented podcast. Smile

As Jean-Luc Picard would say, "Brilliant idea Number One."

While we're talking about helpful doo-dads, I've relied on timecode calculators for years.

There are approximately two million of them for Windows (windows folks, look 'em up), but only a teensy handful for Mac. My favorite is this widget. It looks really good, and does exactly what it's supposed to do. Gotta love that combination.

Anybody else got any cool utilities? A discussion of cool widgets would take a year.

Say Walter, great idea for a segment on your spectacular Apple-oriented podcast. Smile

If I wasn't in video production I would either own a restaurant or a movie theater.
