Is there anyway that i can use a Kona3 card to convert on QT file on my hard drive to another format also save on the hard drive without exporting the clip outside?

Thanks for your response.
An example would be that I have PAl DV file on the disc and want to convert it to any HD format so that I end up with say a QT HD version of the file.

No. The Kona only works with feeding video signals to it not with Quicktime files on disc. If you feed a DV-PAL SDI signal to the Kona3, then you can upconvert and capture a PAL HD file in 1080 or 720. FOr file based upconversions there are plenty of options to choose from. Compressor doesn't a decent job or you can pay for one from a number of companies.

When I feed in by firewire from a camera - say a DV source and choose a Kona codec to up convert - will the card then handle the up convert to the disc?

No as you are using the firewire port on the computer, not the Kona card.

Make sense?

Makes sense - I just hoped that using the Kona codec would use the Kona processor.
I was misinformed by the dealer.
Thanks for your help.

FOr the majority of it's uses, the KOna uses codecs from FCP. If you feed SDI from a dv deck, you can up-convert your dv signal.
