Capturing ProRes 422 with Black Magic Decklink HD
on Jul 2, 2012 at 2:25:10 pm

I may be blind, but I've looked and looked and can't find a way to capture my 720P60 video via Decklink HD to anything other than ProRes HQ. I don't want HQ, my entire workflow is 422. I've tried altering the capture settings from within FCP but all I get is a black screen. Is this just a ridiculous Black Magic limitation (wouldn't be the first) or am I missing something?

Since nobody answered for a couple of days, I'll post a thought...

Are there or is there a control panel or app which sets up the decklink? Check that for sure... sounds like a deckling problem so might also reinstall it's drivers.

[Jerry Hofmann] "Are there or is there a control panel or app which sets up the decklink?"

There is a decklink panel in system preferences, but it doesn't address codecs, its for up and down conversion settings.

[Jerry Hofmann] "sounds like a deckling problem so might also reinstall it's drivers."

Re-installed already. I'm beginning to think it just might be a decklink limitation. While their cards are solid they have zero customer support and they seem to make curious choices in what codecs / frame rates they choose to support.

Could be right Herb... it's why I use AJA products.. tons of customer service.

I'd get the good folks at Black Magic Design on the phone...

Better than that I got someone on the Cow's BM forum who suggested where I might tweak a setting and it worked! Bessie to the rescue again!

I have the same problem. What did you do to "Tweak the settings".
We have a customer that only wants ProRes 422 "SQ" not "HQ"

With Blackmagic, it's doesn't have that option....regretfully, we sold our KonaCard.

may be a little late, but go into your capture presets, click on the prores HQ setting, duplicate it, then edit it...change the codec to 422, and rename it....
