    ADVC110 - Real time preview?

    41NBC Engineer Level 1

      I'm looking into the ADVC110 as an NTSC output solution on a CS5 setup that I'm building.  My question is, with the ADVC110 do I get realtime video output to a studio monitor when playing and scrubbing video on the timeline?  If not, does anyone have a decent solution to getting an NTSC signal out from Premiere to an NTSC studio monitor?

          That wont work very well with MPE enabled and is  not a solution for

          HD at all because it is a DV device.

           

          F/W and HD dont really like each other much.

           

          It works as a "fudge" only but you wont like it.

            Ah, thanks.  HD isn't really an issue.  I still have to work in SD for local tv stations and since nobody around here can broadcast local HD content yet, I need something that will get my video to an SD studio monitor so I can check the playback before it has to go to them to air.  I primarily use it to constantly check and correct fields on source video, and I have do that often so it's a necessity.

             

            Is there anything that will work well with MPE enabled?  Could I get what I'm looking for by simply connecting a second video card and outputting a 3rd monitor signal to the studio monitor?  As long as the 3rd monitor solution would out the fields properly so that I can check them then I wouldn't mind doing that in order to keep the MPE enabled.

              Sadly, no.
              You must set MPE to "Software Only" to output a DV signal via firewire.

              Look here for the "official" Adobe endorsed workaround.

                Thanks for answering my questions and for doing so pretty quickly!  Looks like the multiple monitor solution may be the only decent option.  I head over to the discussion thread to try to find some info about the NTSC output from the video card.
