[Ben Holmes]" we recently tried to use an IO-HD to record the 720p output from a RED, as we thought it might be a viable off-line option with burnt-in data. The IO-HD would not lock up within FCP, so we could not capture this way, although it would pass through the video to the monitor. And yes, I tried every possible capture option."
never had an issue with that - the HDSDI coming out is 59.94 and I can capture that all day long. what setting? I use the 720p59.94 setting out from the HDSDI- the HDMI output from RED is a non-standard geometry ( its not video) and cannot be recorded.
there are NO flags so that you cannot have anything other than the Baseband video signal.
Will do some more tests when I have access to the camera at base again - but I know I tried that setup. Glad to hear it's doable, although I don't now think it's the way we'll work with RED, with the log and transfer option available now.
