No video playback from AJA Kona LHe after FCP reinstall
on Jun 21, 2013 at 8:18:13 pm

Hi all,

I recently re-installed Final Cut 7 on a Mac Pro at work, but am now having issues with the video playing back through the AJA KonaLHe to a television. I've been running trial and error on the Audio/Video settings in Final Cut as well as the Kona Control Panel, but to no avail. I tried trashing the Final Cut preferences, and restoring old ones, but that doesn't seem to help either.

If I run quicktimes through the AJA TV app, the television plays back fine. Likewise, if I set the Default Video Output in the Control Panel to either bars or Macintosh Desktop, that shows up. I'm getting audio out from the Final Cut sequence, and if I hit View > External Video > Show Current, I get a single frame.

All roads seem to point to an issue with the A/V settings, but I can't seem to find the right combination. Settings on a similar machine here that works are as follows:

Sequence Preset: AJA Kona LH: 1080psf 23.98 Apple ProRes 422
Capture Preset: AJA Kona LH: 1080psf 23.98 Apple ProRes 422
Device Control Preset: AJA Kona LH: 29.97 Sony VTR B
Video Playback: AJA KonaLH 1080psf23.98 10 Bit (1920 x 1080)
Audio Playback: AJA KonaLH

Aside from testing all the countless combinations of settings, I'm sort of at a loss. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Collin

Try the 1080i 29.97 10 bit video playback option. The Kona will convert the 23.98 to play out as 29.97. I say this because there are many TVs that won't display 1080psf 23.98.

Thanks Shane,

Turns out after re-installing Final Cut, you also need to un-install all AJA software, run Final Cut once, then re-install the Kona driver, AJA ControlPanel, etc. After doing all this, video played back fine on the television.

Sorry, I assumed you did all that.

COOL!
