We are currently trying to set up a hd decklink extreme on a MacPro Quad Core Intel Xeon 8GB.
The installation was successful also as far as FCP is concerned (Final Cut version is 6.0.5).
We are trying to get Log and Capture live from our Sony EX-3 throught HDSDI connection.
We are interested in getting the preview and capture at 4.2.2 10 bit uncompressed 25P or 24P
We set the capture settings (in the log and capture window) device control: Non-Controllable Device. All we get is a black image and the message No Communication.
It seems we are not able to set FCP or something in the camera itself.
Could anybody give us a step by step procedure for setting up FCP "Easy setup" window, "audio/Video settings" window and "Log and Capture" window or anything could solve our problem.
Thanks for your attention
You do not choose "Non controlable device", it should be the same setting as what your capturing and what your camera is outputing. In your case, it should be Black magic 1080p 4:2:2 or whatever setting your capturing with. They must match.
