3/4" to HD with K3 card and an Io
on Feb 1, 2008 at 2:57:17 pm

I'm digging back in our archives and I'm trying to digitize some 3/4. I can hook it up to the Io and everything works just dandy. But what I want to do is digitize it to pro rez.

I have the composite of the 3/4 deck going into the Io, should the Io be sending that signal out of the SDI into the k3?

What would a workflow be for this?

Like I said I have no problems bringing the 3/4 in through the Io, but than bringing it in pro rez isn't an option. Could I just create a different easy set up that will capture pro rez?

FCP 6.02, Octo with 8 Gigs ram, Kona 3, AJA Io, 3tb xraid with 2 tb free space. 10.4.11 if it matters.

Ultimately I would like to be able to take the 3/4 through the k3 so I could uprez it although that is not crucial for the project I'm working on currently.

I don't have a full Io, I have the LA. Does it convert Analog Signals to SDI?

You would set up the Io as a pass through device and send the signal on to the Kona 3.

In the Easy Setup of FCP, you would set up for ProRes capture via the Kona 3. You should be able to hook up the RS-422 from the K3 to the 3/4 deck and get this to work, I think.

I've never tried it, but if the Io does convert analog to SDI, then I would expect that to work.

"Does it convert Analog Signals to SDI? "

That is the question I don't know the answer to. I have the composite going into the Io and the component out works, but when I try the SDI the signal doesn't pass through. I'm not sure it that's just the way it is or if it should be converting the analog signal to SDI. I thought all the outs were live, but I could be wrong.

Do you have the io Control panel open? If so, choose analog composite as the input and then the SDI should be live. Make sure to pass audio as well and choose embedded audio on output.

No I don't have the Io control panel open. Now for the dumb part - where do I find the Io control panel? The only control panel I find is my K3 control panel. I can find all the Io presets, but I don't see a control panel.

[Jeremy Doyle] "where do I find the Io control panel?"

If it's not installed, you can download it from aja.com

Shouldn't have this installed when I downloaded and installed all the drivers yesterday? All the presets showed up.

It's separate form the drivers unlike the Kona.

Thanks for all the help. It's now working like I thought it should.

I would never have found that control panel without help. I would never have guessed it to be separate from the drivers. Guess I'm just used to the K2 and K3's that I've been using the past years.

[Jeremy Doyle] "uess I'm just used to the K2 and K3's that I've been using the past years. "

When the io was first released, it did not have a control panel as the video conversion options were disabled. After a while, AJA released the control panel to allow all the conversion options and it was separate form the drivers as there was no new driver release when the control panel released. That's probably more than you wanted to know, but there it is.

That probably explains the firmware update my Io needed too.

Yessir. The firmware updater is bundled with the control panel to allow for all those cool new thingies like presets and proc amp levels.

Perhaps it's time to download and install it.
