hook up an external confidence monitor cs6 premiere pro

Dec 10, 2012 8:28 AM

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

    Someone else will have to help with that.  I'm aware of the devices, but haven't used one yet.

    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)

    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 .

     

    First the

    KONA 3 Driver for Windows (64-bit) Version 10.3.2,

     

    , then reboot and install the

     

    AJA Windows Plug-ins for Adobe CS6 Version 10.3.2

     

    It will then show up as a check box on tthe above screen/

    Most third party  external video hardware I know of needs drivers to allow it to work in tandem with CS6. Like I said, I dont like BMD stuff so I can speak to theat specifically. Good luck!
