Any Blackmagic decklink experts?
on Jul 28, 2011 at 5:16:40 am

Hey guys,

Does anyone knows how to setup a blackmagic decklink HD extreme 2 so that I can capture video coming from an HDMI input (1080i)?


I bought this converter http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...VGA_Audio.html that outputs the video coming from the graphics card to 1080i but I'm still not able to configure my Decklink HD extreme 2 so I can capture the video to FCP 6.

In FCP 6 this are the settings I tried...

EASY SETUP
Format: Blackmagic RGB 10 bit
Use: Blackmagic HDTV 1080i 59.94 - 10 bit RGB 4:4:4
Rate: 29.97

AUDIO/VIDEO SETTINGS
Sequence preset: Blackmagic HDTV 1080i 59.94 - 10 bit RGB 4:4:4
Capture preset: Blackmagic HDTV 1080i 59.94 - 10 bit RGB 4:4:4
Device control preset: Non-controllable device (since the video is coming from the converter that comes from the VGA out of the computer)
Video playback: Digital Cinema Desktop Preview - Main


I have a mac pro quad-core, 16GM ram, and a GSPEED ES 4T Raid to store the video.

I read the entire manual and there is nothing that shows you how to deal with this... Any suggestions will be GREATLY appreciated!!!

To Capture this quality you need a fast RAID.
Try Blackmagic ProRes Capture.

First. Check your Decklink control panel in the Mac system preferences. The input must be set to HDMI.

I have a pretty fast RAID (G-SPEED ES) and I already setup the blackmagic to capture form the HDMI input in the mac system prefs but still no luck...

I just tried to capture from the HDMI output of a graphics card to the HDMI input of the blackmagic and this is what it showed at first:

Then I tried reconnecting the cable and this happen:

I have no idea why the screen turn like this... and for some reason I'm still not able to capture any video before windows starts... All I want to be able to do is to capture the BIOS setup of a computer without actually recording a monitor screen using a video camera... any ideas?

Try 50i settings?
Try other capture settings?

All the same?
