Drop frames using Black Magic Intensity w/ iMAC
on Dec 10, 2013 at 5:12:52 pm

I am using my Sony HDR-FX1000 and my iMAC w/ 2.7 GHz Intel Core i5 4GB memory w/ MAC OS X 10.8 using Black Magic Intensity Extreme and it keeps on dropping frames. Please help me.

Are you just recording to the iMac's standard SATA internal hard drive? If so, that may be your bottleneck, at least for fully uncompressed video recording from Blackmagic products. Run the "Blackmagic Disk Speed Test" that's included in the Intensity driver/software install and post the results here.

In my case, I installed the Apple ProRes codecs and switched to recording in ProRes LT which was sufficient for my needs:

Otherwise, you will probably need a SSD or external Thunderbolt drive for fully uncompressed recording.
