It was a little confusing reading the release notes. Does Smoke 2013 support video output via AJA? I have an AJA Kona 3 and it clicks on when opening Smoke, but it doesn't sync up, so no video. Anyone else have this happen?

Smoke does usually support Video I/O through AJA, but the functionality is not enabled in the Pre-Release trial 1.

It will be back in a future Pre-Release trial.

Hmm. Weird. It works for me. I love that you can click the "Monitor" button in connectFX to get either the fx tree or video on the monitor.

Jeremy, are you running 2012 as well? Maybe it's enabled for Smoke owners? I'll know soon enough as I'm DL'ing SP2 and updating the Kona drivers. 2013 is up and running at home but I was concerned putting it on SMACK at work... Looks like other folks are doing it so let the adventure begin!

Should be a fun summer, ay ;o)

Nope, Smoke noob here.

I read that video monitor out was enabled, but capture/deck control out was not enabled.

ah, ok, was ready to fire away questions on how your sys was working because I just heard through the grapevine that putting 2013 on the same sys w/2012 will 'cause problems. Guess I'll continue evaluating 2013 at home and keep 2012 running smoothly.

I just realized my Aja is working fine through sdi, just not component. My reference monitor is component, which does not have a signal, and my plasma, which is sdi, does have a signal.

Weird

I think that's correct. Smoke is all digi-tahl.

Just to clarify ,

Smoke pre_release 1 has broadcast monitor support trough AJA kona 3 / 3G and ioXt devices. All you need is driver 10.3.1 from AJA.

What Frederic meant was , the capture/output to VTR is not yet available in preview 1.

you can also broadcast on a Dual monitor setup , if your Mac OS detects one ,DVI , HDMI ..etc

What probs have you heard about with 12/13 on same sys? I have an alt boot drive for 13, and also using a different media storage drive. Should be ok in that setup, right?

Are there plans to support BMD devices?
