Yes, I just loaded premiere 4.2 updates, Quicktime the newest version, updated media encoder,and installed the 4.2 AJA Xena Driver,as instructed by the release notes. I'm running 64bit Vista with two quad core intel's and 16GB of RAM.

I'm running it through some test. It seems to do well as long as everything in the sequence is native framerate,frame size, etc for the sequence.

It's all good until I tried to mix and scale video footage in a sequence. It seems that it has some distinct playback issues with scaled footage in certain types of sequences namely, 1080i sequences. It hangs and loops the top 1/4 of the screen when scaling footage. I'm working with mixed HD and SD 24p footage. I have been experimenting and got better results when using the AJA preset for 1080p/sf 23.97 sequence. I am now working with interpreting the footage in several configurations to see if I get better results with other preset sequences. I'll post what I find over the next couple of days.

In the documentation included with the installers, be sure to check out page 82 of the IO Express manual for some info on the new Premiere Pro Player setup. The rest of the docs are in the process of being revised, but that segment will give you the basic procedure for all AJA Xena series products...

[Norbert Rudzik] "Problem with Cineform codec for PPro. After uninstall ProspectHD v4 is AJA working.

CineForm does NOT run under AJA retail drivers...CineForm uses OEM AJA drivers. Installing the retail version (the drivers this thread refers to are the retail drivers) over the top of CineForm and the OEM drivers will cause a mess.

There is an extensive thread on this below.

Check in with CineForm to see what drivers you are supposed to be running, they are probably included in the latest update for your CineForm product.

I would also advise against the manual gutting you're doing by removing plugins without an uninstall...you'll just make things less stable.

Uninstall the Xena retail drivers and get the latest CineForm update and install the Xena drivers that come with it.

If you feel you need the retail drivers for some other use, you'll need to have a dual-boot system (I have one of these). The CineForm side and the AJA retail side. It works fine.

These latest drivers seem to work fine for most...
