Creative COWHow Do I Down-convert with the AJA Konas?

From FAQ:

This method applies to the AJA Kona 2, 3, LH and LHe.

Final Cut Pro MUST be set up in the HD format you are editing in. Do NOT change anything in FCP to SD. For example if you are editing in AJA Kona 3 DVCPro HD 1080i/29.97, then leave FCP set to AJA Kona 3 DVCPro HD 1080i/29.97.

Click on the Kona Control Panel.

Click on the Control Tab

Primary should be set to your FCP HD format. In this example that would be 1080i/29.97

Secondary should be set to the SD format you want to downconvert to. In this example that would be 525/29.97.

Click on the Output tab you want to downconvert. The Konas have up to three outputs represented on the right side of the Control Panel. Simply click on the one you want to Downconvert.

Select Secondary 525.

If you want to downconvert more than one output, select those outputs and do the same.

Now go back to Final Cut Pro.

The outputs you chose to downconvert are now displaying the downconverted SD.

This is the correct way to use the Control Panel. NEVER use Final Cut Pro to do any sort of conversions. You leave that set up in the Primary format.
