Does anyone out there have a resolution chart available as a file (.dpx, .cin, TIFF, etc.) that I could download?
Prefer 1920 x 1080 but could live with 4K or 2K. Just want something to stick at the head of some film out tests...

Jeff, here's a link to various resolution charts you can use. You can download vector files so you can pretty much roll your own resolution files. Hope they're useful.

Thanks, Rune, and thanks to Rick Torpey, Dirk Meier, John Mastrogiacomo, and Matthias Buercher for their links and ideas.
Someone requested I add a resolution chart -- they weren't picky -- at the head of a transfer we're making on our film recorder. I could make one, but it was more fun making my own faux-academy leader.

That's cheap all right. How much ya gonna sell it for? Just got a fun little WiebeTech drive dock for plugging bare ATA drives to Firewire 800 with full bus power, one cable, with a power switch. The point - so one can fill up bare drives for mass near-line storage. A box with bridge board and power supply costs about as much as the mechanism these days. Not a RAID, and no SATA model available, though they do make SATA RAID's - go figure.

This one's mine...
8 300 gig Seagate SATA drives (about $200 each), a Sonnet 4+4 SATA card ($180), a cheap but ok 8 bay case from Ebay (new, but no one bid) for $25. And some cables.
OK, so really it's not a RAID -- it's a striped set of drives... but it's fine for film recorder tests. Also should be nice for my Decklink HD Pro (it's 4:4:4 so it's not off-topic!).

That sounds cool. I use the old one, which requires a PS, a slight drag, but great for cheap storage and moving big files around. I have a bunch of older 20-100 gig ATA drives that now have a reason to live!

Yes, we're taking that approach for cheap storage for the Kinetta. Six ATA drives in cheap trays -- clone 3 mags or more onto these drives for less cost per minute than HDCam SR tape.
(We also will have an LTO-3 workflow.)

That's the approach I've been taking with my direct to disk solution - I forget the 4:4:4 numbers (sorry, have to look up), but about $200/hr for 10 bit 4:2:2 uncompressed 1080p24 on fault tolerant storage (lose one of 4 drives you're still OK).
