Just upgraded from FCP 5 / Dual G5 / DVCam / DV deck as I/O system -to-
8 Core Mac Pro / FCP 7 & X / Sony FS-100 / BMD Deck Link Studio 2
I installed the BMD card and the new Desktop Video 8.5 software.
Q1. Is this the only software need for BMD DLS?
After installing, I just did a quick test to see if I could get a 1080p timeline to show up on my 40" Sony 1080P LED display via HDMI.
There were 10,000 codec/settings to choose from - I tried 1080p/24 to start. Pulled in some BARS from the BMD instsall disc - rendered them in case they were a different format. All I got was strange Red Noise on the plasma and my SD monitor feed by the Composit out just rolled.
When I set the timeline to SD DV NTSC everything worked fine - looked like crappy SD though.
Q2. Any quick tips on what my HD problem might be.
Q3. Anyone shooting wiht the Sony FS100? What camera setting do you use and what FCP setting do you use?
