Digital Cinema Desktop Preview not working
on Oct 2, 2009 at 5:14:26 pm

I've just set up a new FCP system for a project with a Mac Pro 2.93 GHz Quad-Core / 6GB RAM / OS 10.5.8 / FCP 6.0.6 / 2 of the new 24" Apple LED displays...

my project is XDCAM 1080p23.98

when I try to use one display as a workspace and the other as digital cinema desktop preview (raw or fullscreen), the display I am trying to use as desktop preview goes completely white and won't show me anything. I've tried different arrangements to no avail. If I do digital cinema desktop preview on the main screen it plays fine...

any ideas?

I have 2 different graphics cards- 1 is ATI Radeon HD 4870 / 1 is NVIDIA GeForce GT 120... could that be my issue?

thanks,
Pablo

That'd be the first place to start, yes.

thanks. but both these cards to my knowledge should support what I'm doing...before I swap out the card, anyone else ever encounter this issue before?

thanks

Yeah, the cards will, but FCP won't. If you don't believe me, then read this:

bummer dude. since I'm using the new LED monitors, there's no graphics card that will support 2 of them on the same card. anyone know if this thing Atlona AT-DP200 thing would work-

if I ran 1 display off that to the DVI port on the card... and the other display straight into the mini port?

thanks
