Anyone know the correct sequence settings to get real time Kona output, to match FCP?
Using some test HDV footage I'm now getting good playback from a single clip, but as soon as I apply any kind of transformation I loose real time playback on the Kona - the screen flickers wildly (although Premiere still plays back in real time on the computer screen).
Even if I render I still get screen flicker, so in sequence settings I change the preview file format (the render codec?) from the default I-frame Only MPEG to 1440x1080i25 HDV, this enables the codec drop down underneath, which I then change to ProRes 422.
After a render this now plays fine - but it all seems a bit hit and miss - not sure I fully understand the logic of what's going on here.... and be nice not to get some real-time functionality back.
Anyone cracked the best sequence settings? Or is the Kona real-time functionality a lot more limited in Premiere, compared to FCP?
Finally - if this is indeed how things work - be nice if the Kona could just output a black screen when in real-time mode, instead of the wild flickering - looks a bit disturbing from the clients perspective!
Thanks - but I've got it working now - my only problem is that it does slow down the timeline responsiveness considerably - and there seems to be no way to toggle the Kona output on and off - it seems hard wired into the sequence preset. It would be great if I could edit fast, without the Kona output, and then turn on the Kona for critical viewing. The only way I can see to do this is to copy the edit into a non-Kona sequence - but then of course you loose all the renders.
