Yea, subject says it all. Reboot. Set up DS Keyer. Launch FCP. Output has key over it. Activate Edit to Tape. DS Keyer stops working.

Kona 3
FCP 7.0.1
AJA 7.1

Is there a way to fix this? I'm hoping that driver 7.5 fixes it.

Yea, AJA 7.5 didn't work any better.

Jay-

What format is everything in including your alpha?

Video in FCP is ProRes 422. File being loaded for the DS Keyer is a PhotoShop file. I'm doing Graphic over Frame Buffer.

I'll admit, it's been a long time since I have done this, but after the ETT start and you click back on the control panel, you can't force it to start again?

I honestly can't remember if you can do this on ETT, I know it can be done in AJA TV.

SDI is set to video+key?

I don't think that Video+Key is it. According to page 60 of the manual it's for feeing an outboard downstream keyer. Plus that the Kona3 internal DS Keyer is working until I activate Edit To Tape and then it quits working. And also that I just tried that and it still does the same thing.

Sorry, Jay. Not at a machine right now I'll have to check for you tomorrow
unless someone else gets here first.

Video+key is for a switcher.

Doing te method you are trying using an exported
movie in to AJATV will work. Just have to check on fcp.

It use to work fine back when I was running FC Studio 2 on an earlier MacPro. AJA was v6.something. I upgraded a couple of months ago we upgraded and I noticed then that it quit working. But I only need it for another week so I suffered through cutting the element into the timeline in FCP and rendering to do the output. But now I need the feature again, doing a custom graphic element on the output to tape and I would really like to do it in real time like I use to. And it would be nice if this could get fixed.

I'd contact AJA, Jay.

Hi Jay,

This is a known issue.
Look for the fix on Monday when we release v7.5.1.

Best regards

So, I was told last Friday by Rudy Van Kol at AJA that a new driver would be posted last Monday, and it was not. I wrote to them Monday and Tuesday asking when it would be posted and still have not gotten any reply at all.

Anyone hear anything on this yet?

Thanks,
Jay

The KONA version 7.5.1 driver released on Monday addresses the issue you experienced with the Downstream Keyer and the KONA 3.

Thank you,
