    Blackmagic removed desktop audio functionality from Declink cards on Windows.... now what?

      So, Blackmagic removed desktop audio functionality from Declink cards on Windows.... now what? After Effects is not programmed to talk to Decklink cards directly on the audio part, there is no ASIO, or mercury playback for the audio part, Blackmagic says it was never intended to be used as an audio card, yet up to last version of version 9 provided an audio driver for it, as a result, now any application not written to talk to the Decklink card directly, can't use the card for audio playback. I'm wondering if they think that the people that uses After Effects don't need audio at all....   rewiring all the rooms in  the post productions facilities that had all the audio of all the system going out via the decklink cards it is not an option.

       

      I'm wondering if Adobe is aware of this and if it have plans to support direct connection to the Decklink cards on the audio side of After Effects. This is a huge problem for all the people that uses AE and Decklink on windows and wants a profesiona quality audio monitoring.  Audition, Premiere, all of those can work now, but not AE. I remember some time ago AE used to support ASIO, but I do not see that option anymore.
