Anyone have a successful setup with the Kona 3 on a MacPro with CS4? I have found that disabling the Adobe plugins makes for a more stable system. Load them up and output via Kona card and I get the lovely rainbow wheel plenty.
We are running the 7.5.1 control panel and the 7.5.1 Adobe Utils. Can we run the 8.5 Control Panel with the 8.5 Adobe Utils with CS4? Is it any more stable?
We typically run FCP on this system which works great, but Premier has been giving us fits just outputting to the broadcast monitor.

The latest versions of the KONA drivers will specifically work with the later versions of plugins, which are designed for and tested with CS5. For example, our AJA Mac Plugins for Adobe v. 7.5.1 are specifically designed for use with the version 7.5.1 KONA 3 driver. That was the last release of Plugins for CS4 and all subsequent releases of AJA Mac Plugins for Adobe have been designed for, and tested with CS5.
That being said, if you drop a line to our support department they may be able to help you identify issues that may be causing your problems. Be prepeared to tell them about the file types, resolutions, and framerates you're using. Also, if you have other Adobe plugins installed for CS4, be sure to let them know. Being able to describe the steps you go through to reach the problem you're describing will also help them to identify and troubleshoot the issue.
