Smoke output through a Black Magic card
on Mar 26, 2013 at 10:44:21 am

Hi,
We're looking at building a Resolve/ Smoke suite, and I'm trying to sort out the monitoring. The Resolve outputs through SDI and has a secondary HDMI output which we'll feed to a client monitor, but does anyone know if Smoke can also output through the HDMI out of a Decklink Extreme3D card?

Nedeem,
that's been on the Smoke Wishlist for quite a while..
I have no idea if it'll happen any time soon.

I use Resolve and Smoke on the same computer. Technically, you must use AJA card with Smoke and Resolve with BM. There is a way to run both cards on the same computer, but it's painful. Said that, I usually use BM card with Smoke. I just use SDI output of BM, while using Smoke. It works, not great, but it does work.

Could you describe this in more detail? I run Resolve and Smoke 2013 on the same system, and I've never had Smoke recognize my BM card. Is this only when both cards are installed on the same system?

Thanks Jake, I think we're going to try and use both cards. Can you give an outline of the problems we might face doing this?

BM card SDI output appears, if you select in Smoke Preferences/Broadcast Monitor/Dual Display
For me it runs great, but your individual; milage may cary. So, try it and see, if that works for you.

Would you have any idea how to get Smoke to recognize my BM SDI card? So far, under Preferences/Broadcast Monitor it simply says Off & does not give me the option to change or search for my SDI card...
