PREPARATION OF EDITING TAPE
The preparation of the tape for editing differs depending on whether assemble or insert editing is to be performed.
The control signal (CTL) must be recorded on the tape before any attempt is made to edit.
For assemble editing, the control signal is recorded at the start of the editing tape. (1st edit)
! Press the IN button while holding down the ENTRY button to register the IN point of VTR2.
The registered position is set 23 seconds before the time which is set by the 1ST EDIT preset value. When the 1ST EDIT
(SHIFT+ASMBL) buttons are then pressed, recording commences, recording proceeds up to a point 3 seconds beyond the
IN point, and the tape is automatically rewound to the 0-second point where it stops.
When the first edit function is used, black burst signals are always recorded as the video signals and the sound is muted.
For insert editing, the control signal must be recorded from the start to the end of the editing tape.
• If the T-END setting is selected for set-up menu item No. 311 (1ST EDIT DUR), 1ST EDIT operation continues to the end of
the tape or until the ALL STOP button is pressed. (Black burst and time code signals are recorded.)
To record the time code together with the video signals onto a new tape:
! Insert the tape into the recorder.
@ While holding down the SHIFT button, press the MENU button to establish the set-up mode.
1) Select set-up item No.507 (TC MODE), and set it to P-REC (0000).
2) Select set-up item No.508 (TC PRESET), and set the default value of the time code.*
3) Select set-up item No.506 (DF MODE), and set the drop frame or non-frame mode.
*To reset the time code to "0," press the RESET button while pressing the SHIFT button.
