The green flashes and 1/2 resolution captures have been around with ProRes HQ since that codec was introduced. As Gary Adcock has posted in numerous threads, the HQ codec is really intended for frame sizes larger than 1920, yet folks insist on using it for 1080 projects.

We only work with the standard ProRes codec. So far my FCP system has blown up twice today with the AJA Output error. It's only happening on the very latest Mac Pro machine which seems to be a lemon from Apple. They have issues with the Hartwell chips that run the Ethernet ports and now the Kona is having all sorts of issues in that machine as well.

Looks like Apple released this machine well before it was ready for prime time.
