Question, I am using the Intensity Pro capture card and having major trouble using it to capture video. I have a DVD (not write protected) that is playing on a Panasonic BluRay player via HDMI cable. When I go into the FCP under the log and capture I get no signal what so ever.
Are there any special settings inside of FCP that I should know about?
Can someone give me a hand on this issue?
Thanks for any help.
I'm afraid that it would not be possible to capture over HDMI from a DVD or Blu-Ray player. These kinds of devices will have HDCP protection on their HDMI outputs, which means that they will not output to a capture device such as the Intensity Pro. Only to devices such as TVs or AV receivers. HDCP is more often than not always enabled, disregarding copy protection, or lack thereof, on the media.

If you have a blu-ray disc drive and it's an unencrypted, you can use BlueX from DVDxDV (http://www.dvdxdv.com). I realize maybe you didn't burn the disc and don't have a drive. That will let you rip parts or the whole disc to a ProRes Quicktime. There's other blu ray ripping software but they would rip straight to a compressed format which would be less preferable, to me at least.
