The Blackmagic card seems to be the culprit with OL CS5.
OL CS5 works correctly once the BM drivers are uninstalled.
Looks like I'll stay with CS4, as it seems unaffected by installed BM drivers!
Does anyone know whether the OL that comes bundles with CS5.5 has fixed this? The trial version will not allow HDV capture.
This appears to be a problem with the OL CS4 4.04 update...
I performed a clean install of Win 7 on my laptop and installed only OL from the CS4 suite.
I ran OL CS4 and ignored prompts to update the application. HDV capture from the Z1 ran flawlessly for over 6 hours.
I set a restore point and then updated to version 4.03. The pixelation/break-up and crashing returned immediately followwed by 3 IRQL not less or equal BSODs.
Windows 7 Event viewer indicated possible issues with atikmdag.sys - so whther 4.03 updates this driver, only Adobe can tell me!!
A disappointing endnote, restoring to my restore point did not revert back to a stable system.
I'm clean installing Win 7 yet again and will install CS5 without first installing CS4.
A clean install of Win 7 and CS5 OL also introduces the corruption/break-up.
It would appear that this is a graphics driver issue that's introduced by Adobe from CS4 4.03 onwards.
Does anyone from Adobe TS know the product well enough to comment? Mark Mapes??
Oh well, yet another clean install of Win 7 about to happen!
A false b****y dawn!
I was hoping to repeat the success I acheived yesterday with the clean Win 7 / OL CS4 - without the 4.0.3 update. Yesterday this allowed OL to preform flawlessly.
Today, after repeating the process, I am back with pixelation/break-up. So it appears that a series of coincidences are in force, and that 4.03 is not the only culprit.
Each time it crashes, there is an atikmdag.sys error in Event Viewer, although I do not know how to act upon the information. I have loaded/unloaded latest ati drivers etc, etc, ad nauseum.
