I am using PPro 5.5.2 on an HP xw8600 with 16GB ram and dual xeons. I have a decklink sdi card installed and the drivers loaded.
PPro does not see the decklink card and only DV/HDV are available for capture/playback. I have looked for Blackmagic presets in capture and in sequence settings, but don't see them.
I can not see my outboard deck either, a Panasonic AJ HS1200a with SDI. I can capture using the BM Media express and then importing that into PPro(which does see the deck and has RS 422 control), but I have seen people talking about using the decklink presets in PPro. I also don't see all the presets for SLRs either. What I am missing here? Do I have to load drivers for BM into PPro somewhere? This deck also has firewire and PPro saw an active firewire hooked up but only has presets for DV/HDV camcorders-so I doubt that would be DVCPro HD. But am willing to use firewire if the sdi is unavailable. Thanks
Hi Jack, I encountered a similar problem with CS3 and the Intensity card. I upgraded the Blackmagic software to the latest version and eventually discovered that the latest version (at that time) did not support CS3. There was nothing in the documentation about this. I eventually found that v 3.9.4 was the newest version that supported CS3. Maybe you have a similar issue with CS5? I'd suggest uninstalling the BM software, install the version that came with your product and if that works, upgrade the versions one version at a time to find the last one that works with CS5.
