so i'm running a pc with cs6 and i'd like to hook up an external monitor for playback while using 2 monitors for the program itself.
how can i do this?
i've looked into some of the blackmagic cards but i'm not sure if they work well, or if they will display the playback only at fullscreen while using two monitors for the programs.
on my avid set up i'm coming out via a kona card to an aja breakout box, then i can feed monitors, decks, etc.
i'm trying to have the same set up on my premiere system without spending the big bucks that avid requires.
thanks for your help
I would suggest an AJA Kona 3 card over Black Magic. I have used them in edti bays for YEARS. They cost a bit more but in my opinion are more durable and AJA tech support is the best. Recently Adobe deveoped the ability (CS6) to allow you to have any sequence you create in PrP play out thru a third party card more efficiently then in the past. I take the HD-SDI output to an engineering monitor for more accurate QC of video and as a client montior as well.
On the software side...its a simple matter of making a selction in a Premiere preferences checkbox once the 3rd party hardware software is installed.
I use a BM card. (with only a minor issue)
las video, thank you i use this route for avid symphony 6.
however i'm looking for a cheaper route for the premiere wuite.
shooternz... what is the minor issue and where is the checkbox located?
thanks again everyone for your help!
Depending on the driver for the BM...a slight lag in stopping timeline playback with the spacebar.
I believe that Adobe introduced it with one of the updates . The one that was supposedly only a security certificate update and nothing else!
Hard to prove but thats when the lag reared its head for me.
Check box in Playback Preferences IIRC.
Im barely able to read it. From what I can see it looks like you havent installed it correctly.
There are 2 drivers you need to download and install .
, then reboot and install the
It will then show up as a check box on tthe above screen/
ok, thanks lasvideo!
i'm going to pass on this step as this is the same system my avid runs on. i'd hate to screw something up.
i'm still leaning torwards the black magic setup for my premiere system.
are there drivers to install for that as well?
ps, you guys are great!!! thanks for of the knowledge and i hope i can share some of mine to you one day!!
