I put in a support request to Blackmagic a few days ago but haven't had a reply, so I hope one of you out there can help me..
I am trying to 'Edit to Video' on FCP 6.0.5, to DigiBeta via SDI on a new Extreme HD card. I have a MacPro OSX 10.5.7, latest drivers etc... PAL, and my sequence is Apple Pro Res 4:22.
When I play my timeline the SDI signal goes to the deck just fine (ie: I can crash record and master that way, with inaccurate timecode). However, when I use 'Edit to Video' to assemble edit my sequence at an exact timecode, my Mac no longer sends the SDI signal to the deck. I presume my output settings are wrong but I have tried a number of them. Am I missing something? My system controls the deck via RS422 just fine.
Please help ASAP, as I have a big job for broadcast and need to master the tape with exact timecode points, not crash record and play from my timeline.
