QC of clips before card erase

Tue Nov 03, 2020 4:41 pm

Watching clips one by one on a 4k monitor on set, doing a 100% visual QC, looking for errors like dead pixels, glitches, black frames etc. And doing this right after offloading a data pack, and before erasing it. Is doing this manually the only method? Are there softwares that can run through Arri ari/arx/mxf/mov files and spit out a report listing any such issues?

What's the standard workflow with QC for Arri files? Watching each clip in real time? Is that what's normal?
How often does one come across such errors necessitating a reshoot? In my limited experience I haven't come across an Arri camera that throws such errors and needs some or all shots from that mag to be reshot. May happen but must be very rare.

I have a client who's insisting on this. Wondering about the right way to go about it.
