Capturing ProRes 422 with Black Magic Decklink HD
on Jul 5, 2012 at 2:13:50 pm

Using Final Cut Pro 7 and I may be blind, but I've looked and looked and can't find a way to capture my 720P60 video via Decklink HD to anything other than ProRes HQ. I don't want HQ, my entire workflow is ProRes 422. I've tried altering the capture settings from within FCP but all I get is a black screen in the capture window. Is this just a Black Magic limitation or am I missing something?

Just change the codec in your capture settings in The audio/video setting menu.

When i do that I get a black screen, no video, just audio.

Are you in the right frame rate/frame size? Sounds like you're not getting signal lock. I've done this without issue many times.

Thank you for making me re-check my settings. When creating the ProRes 422 capture setting I had it on 60 instead of 59.94. That seems to have been the issue. Still, I can't understand why Blackmagic doesn't provide ProRes capture settings and easy settups for FCP in 422 as well as HQ. Oh well.

Mostly because we'd basically have to quadruple every setting that includes the ProRes Codec. So for every frame size and rate, we'd need to essentially add 3 more preset per. As you can see the Blackmagic List is already long. No technical reason, just a practical reason.

Easiest thing to is to duplicate the default prores setting and change the codec as Juan mentioned, then save it out again. Do this for the framesizes and rates you use.

Sincerely,
