Looks like the new 6.0.3 drivers are out. Wonder if it will fix the sparkly white pixel problem on the K3?

I'm going to give it a whirl on our K3 to see! Mid-week excitement! :-)

Wanna know the cool part?

"Improved gamma integrity of KONA captured clips that are modified in After Effects and
then brought back into Final Cut Pro for further editing. (all KONA)"

This means that when you render out of After Effects, there's no more big gamma shift AND you don't have to remove the AJAUncompressed.component from your library. This has been a problem with AE for a long while and AJA has found a way around it it looks like.

Cool....

I'll believe it when I see it.
That freaking gamma has created way too many issues and headaches for way too long.

Cool!

How about MacOS 10.5.6 support? I was told that this was a serious issue with the Kona cards. Is this true?

Been running 10.5.6 for two or three months now all all three of our Kona 3 systems. What issues are supposed to be there?

Hmmmm, I guess everything was resolved then. I know back in December we were told to hold up mainly due to ATTO R380 issues. We updated in late January with the installation of our SAN and all has been well so far.

Thanks for reminding me on that.

WOW!

That was a quick bunch of responses. Thanks, guys!

The issues... I'm not sure, but the last I talked with AJA thru email back before Christmas, they said to stay away at all cost. And reading the emails with 10.5.6 came out - the nightmares that occurred.

Well, let's just say that I don't have very much downtime to fix a meltdown.

Still on 10.5.5 here.

If you are going to go to 10.5.6, download the combo update from Apple.

Hey Jeremy.. why would that yield a result different that from Software Update?

If you have multiple systems, and most of us do, then you only need to download the update once and you can pass it around to all of your systems to be updated - Intel and PowerPC.

[jason levy] "Hey Jeremy.. why would that yield a result different that from Software Update? "

I honestly don't know for sure, bud. I would imagine that there's differernt components and frame works that get updated differently since it's a combo update and is looking for older versions of the OS (10.5.4 or earlier). I am sorry, I don't know much about software on that level. Supposedly if you were having issues with 10.5.6, a combo update solved it.

I have done the combo update on my laptop and all is running okay with a minor hiccup, I think 10.5.6 makes some PCIe stuff go weird. It also had broken Shotput Pro but Imagine Products sent me a new build that fixes it. So there's definitely something different about 10.5.6.

Spent the day editing yesterday with Kona 3 6.03 updates on an 8-core with OS X 10.5.6 & QT 7.6. This is on a SAN set up by Mr. Zelin. All works flawlessly. Did not notice any problems. This is on FCP 6.0.5 by the way.

I tried installing the Kona LH 6.03 drivers on my G5 Tiger 10.4.11 machine today (latest FCP), and it didn't work. After rebooting, it came up with the red "hardware offline" message in the AJA Control panel. Since I had a project I was working on I just went back to 6.02 with no problems. I'm just glad the 6.03 uninstaller worked!

Have you tried the NDD version of the driver? I know that some of the G5s were having issues with the Mac Desktop feature in the AJA Control Panel.

Just an FYI, we had a problem installing on a Leopard install. We would get an Install Error when we tried to install WITH the additional presets. When we installed with just the "Base" settings, 6.0.3 installed fine. AJA tech support know about this.

Has anybody tested the feature for preserving closed captioning? That would have been a ife saver at my last gig.

It works flawlessly. I do this every week with loss of captioning.

[Richard Sanchez] "Has anybody tested the feature for preserving closed captioning?"

The preserving CC data on conversion is part of the code base from aja incredibly popular FSI rack converter. This is not something that is normally found in a product like a capture card.

This is the only product I am aware of that maintains the CC data integrity during the up / down / cross conversion via hardware during capture or playback.
