AJA IO HD Support with new FCP Studio
on Jul 30, 2009 at 5:40:08 pm

Anyone know if upgrading to the new FCP studio will mess up output with an IOHD? I have a multicam project I'd like to work on with the new marker system but I don't want to upgrade and kill my output on my main tower.

I realize that I probably won't have support for any of the new prores codecs (proxy would be nice...) but that's ok because I'm just using standard prores422

Also - on a side note - I purchased my IOHD about a month and a half ago and it's been really squirrely. I get green flashing frames on playback a lot of times and I also seem to have to render a ton (I'm just using the Easy Setup for AJA IoHD- 1080i 29.97 Apple ProRes 422 and my sequence is set to the AJA IoHD: 1080i 29.97 Apple ProRes 422 setting and all of my footage is captured as ProRes). I'm running a 2x2.26 Quad Core Nehaliem with 16 GB of ram and I have a 3.5 terabyte interal Raid 0 - I would assume that I'd be able to playback everything without rendering, especially since the IoHD handles a lot of the prores playout itself... several of my sequences have 6+ tracks of audio - any chance that's the issue? If so - what's the best way to handle that?

AJA recommends sticking to FCS2 until they release official drivers/firmware updates.

Hvae you talked to AJA about your ioHD problem? I assume you have the latest firmware and software updates?

MY guess is that they have NOT updated to FCP 6.06. since that was a specific fix for this issue with the new 8 core machines.

I did speak with Aja and I did upgrade my firmware... didn't realize I had missed an update.

Things are generally more stable and the real time performance is much much better... but I'm still getting some wonkyness - I've had a couple kernel crashes and the IoHD has frozen up a few times. I'm starting to wonder if it's an issue with the actual box I have. I'm still talking to AJA... I'll let you know what they say.

Thanks for the help

re-run the firmware updater on the IoHD.
