Hi - This is my post on this forum, as I'm in the process of moving from FCP7 to Media Composer 6 and Premiere Pro CS5.5
I've been using a Matrox MX02 Mini for some time now, but have got increasingly frustrated with the quality of the drivers and customer support. Now they provided separate drivers for MC and PPro - which isn't helpful.
I'm looking at replacing the Mini with an alternative solution from BMD - probably the Declink Studio or even the Intensity Pro
I don't need necessarily SDI IO right now, but am looking for
- a one driver fits all approach;
- HDMI out, and in/out for component and composite; and
- Something which doesn't cost a fortune...
Am I better off keeping my options open, getting a few more features and investing in the Declink Studio (rather than the cheaper Intensity Pro)?
I would really appreciate the advice of other editors with experience of the various solutions.
