    Transmit/AJA/Playback monitor

    .:Algernon:. Community Member

      Hello,

       

      In CS5.5 when i selected "Computer monitor only" in AE it would only display on my computer monitor. When ever i selected AJA it would play thorugh the AJA but with degraded render times. (So i always kept it on "Computer moinitor only" becuase i never reviewed with clients in AE so it never bothered me.

       

      However in CS6, i can not get if OFF the AJA monitor.. Even when i select "computer monitor only" it's still displaying through my AJA. I can tell that while it is displaying through AJA it is taxing my system. Even the most simple things won't play back in real time.

       

       

      So i am wondering, is it possible disable the "Adobe Transmit" or w/e ever is causing it to display on through the AJA?

       

       

      Thanks,

          You may need to get updated drivers for your Kona card.  That's the first thing to check.

           

          You also need to understand that AE need to render each and every frame in the comp's work area to memory -- or until the memory is used up -- to get anything approaching real time.  It's a RAM Preview.

           

          "Playback" implies you're just hitting the space bar and hoping for the best.  Good luck with that one.

            Yes, i have the newest drivers... and firmware....

             

             

            Yes, I am aware of how AE renders/plays back.

            And by playback i mean a full RAM preview.

            I've been using AE for many years so i am quite familer with it.

             

            I just can't seem to figure out how to disable the AJA playback when in AE.

            It works fine in premere, Media composer 6, final cut.

             

            Like i said, i think (I could be wrong), but i think something is getting messed up with the "murcury transmit". thats new in CS6.

             

            -Thanks,

                Try turning off Open GL accelleration in your preferences as a test.

                 

                We had a MacPro with a Black Magic card that wouldn't playback ram previews smoothly until we changed the settings there. That was with CS5.5...
