Blackmagic and FCPX - Finally Fixed!?
on Aug 19, 2017 at 7:44:33 pm

Blackmagic design has released Desktop Video 10.9.5 which among other things, fixes the "intermittent Final Cut Pro X crash."
I had clients come into my office to look at progress on a project I was working on, and amazingly, with A/V output turned on, X did not crash once, which i can say as never happened as long as I can remember using BMD capture devices.
I'm posting this information to inform the masses, and to see if anyone else as the same experience.

It looks to me our long editing nightmare is over.

On the Windows side I have never had Premiere Pro crash although the drivers can be a tad bit buggy at times. Having said that I am glad you got it working. I cannot edit interlaced video clips for clients without my Intensity Shuttle. Interlaced video just doesn't look good on the computer monitors.

I haven't had that experience, however, performance was always awful. That's been improved in this same update, too.

I, too had ongoing issues with BM drivers - the newer ones had no video output at all and I was forced to stay on an older version which gave me regular crashes. Fingers crossed for V10.9.5 - it seems a bit sluggish on my system but it hasn't crashed all day.

Would Premiere Pro have a slight advantage if true broadcast compliant output is needed? I know Premiere Pro does not suffer any real-time performance loss on the Windows side using an Intensity Shuttle (USB 3.0). For some editors a magnetic timeline without tracks may not be the most important feature of their workflow.
