Kona 3 Down Convert on Smoke on MAc
on Mar 4, 2011 at 9:03:53 am

I have certified hardware for smoke on mac installed on my system.

I use SD SDI monitor that work fine if work with SD material in SOM.

But if I work with HD material i can not preview it in my SD SDI monitor, event thouhg i have down convert it kona 3.

I know this down convert feature works very well in Kona 3 + FCP or event in AJA TV application.

Does smoke support the down convert feature on Kona 3 ??

Need info . I appreciate it. Thank you.

do it digital

Smoke does not talk to the Kona like FCP. So the downconvert is irrelevant.

If you are working in HD, then you should really have some sort of HD monitor.

Thank you Brian, You are right, Smoke does not support down convertion on Kona 3.

But i will give a try to use external down conversion hardware. So, Kona 3 will send HD SDI to the converter and the converter to supply SD to my SD monitor.

At the moment i just rely on the down scale performed by smoke software that i am sure it will task my mac processor.
