I have connected the HD SDI output of the camera (1080i50) to my decklink board and I have image and timecode on the capture window of Final Cut Pro.
But I am not able to have the Device Control from FCP, the best I can do until now it use the "DVCPRO HD FireWire 25fps" it shows VTR OK just for a few seconds, and during that time I am able to control the camera, after that few seconds it shows No Communication
If I switch the Easy Setup in FCP to 720p25 I am able to control the camera, but I am not able to digitize using my Blackmagic board.
Is there a way to control and digitize from the camera using the HD-SDI output and Firewire for Device Control?
I am trying to use this setup for several reasons:
1 - Final Cut when digitizing from JVC Decks or cameras in firewire doesn't capture the complete footage (make holes of 7 seconds in the beginning of each filmed clip, sometime in the midle)
2 - Final Cut doesn't have support for 720p50, so using the camera built in capability of converting to 1080i50. I will be able to edit this material in Final Cut.
