FCP 6.1, HDV and Io
on Jul 3, 2007 at 9:09:51 pm

I just upgraded to Final Cut Studio 2 today and discovered something interesting. I'm now able to play out an HDV Sequence to my SD NTSC monitor via the Io. In 5.1.4 Io would pass the signal, but update only when you paused playback. Now it updates every frame during playback. The quality is nothing you would want to output to tape, but it could allow me to monitor and judge levels on my broadcast monitor and scopes. It also might be useful for output to tape or DVD recorder for client review (sort of like a low res review from my Avid and Media 100 days).

Yeah its great. I use it when doing colourgrading the HDV timeline although it would be even better it 'Color' could output thru it.

I agree. What's the sense of providing a color grading tool that won't output to video hardware?

[BazinoZ] "although it would be even better it 'Color' could output thru it."

that is an apple enforced restriction on Color. It is not something that Aja is doing

Yes of course. That is what I meant to imply. It's somewhat similar to the way Soundtrack Pro won't use Io for monitoring unless you load a video file.

... and here I was think Apple actually made it into the 21st century.

Here is a copy of my enquiry to aja

product: Io

message:
Hello.,, when I use "color" and try and set the video output to the Aja IO it is displayed but it won't allow me to select it. Is this a driver issue and if so will there be an update to address this?

thanks

Hi Baz,

Thanks for your message. Unfortunately Color is not support with the
Ios. I am not aware of any plans of to allow Color to support the Io
boxes or if it is even possible.

Regards,
Jim

This is not a driver issue it is a limitation imposed by Apple on use of the FW buss. It has more to do with the original workflow for what was Final Touch, and it not something that AJA has any control over.

Do you really think that the company with only 3rd party codec that is supported by Color ( that would be AJA) would not have access to the entire code base??

I agree. AJA is a first rate company with outstanding customer support. If Color were capable of accessing Io, AJA would support it.

Just out of interest, what is the quality actually like working in this way?
I've yet to upgrade to FCP6 and only usually use my Io for monitoring while grading. Is it good enough quality for that? Or is it not as good as an HD-SD downconvert?
