This is a short manual how to use the Logger and the required software. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to get in touch.
To ingest the markers into Premiere Pro you need to install two things:
And don’t forget to charge your NanoLockit Logger before you shoot 🙂
Fully charged the battery will last for at least 20 hours running time. That should be enough even for the worst shooting days.
That’s it. Basically it’s about pressing the green for a good take (or several good parts within the take, since you’ll see all markers in the timeline) or the red button for a bad take. Still there are some things to consider before you start logging:
Often it will be the case that you press „Green“ or „Red“ when the camera isn’t recording anymore.
Don’t worry: the algorithm in our Premiere Pro panel ensures that these markers are assigned to the last clip. Until the next clip starts.
Sometimes you might forget to shoot the clapper clip at the beginning of the day.
Don’t worry: you can also shoot it in the middle of the day or at the end. The algorithm will still work. Just make sure all relevant cameras are rolling and and the NanoLockit Logger is visible while you triple-press the button.
It is important to download the .markers file after every shooting day. Otherwise the timestamps might overlap and the matching process goes wrong. We recommend to rename the .markers file to a telling name like: ProjectX_Day1.markers
When using Creative Mode with multiple cameras, markers have to be imported in a separate step for each camera. If you can use Timecode as a reference (Sync Mode) you can select all clips of all synced cameras at once.
