The first thing to check would be playback in a native PP sequence. Granted, you don't get video out, but if it works there, then you know to look to BlackMagic rather than Adobe for support on this one.
Alot of times my playback stops.
1. Sequence > Sequence Settings
2. Click on Playback Settings
3. Check the Turn Off Dropped Frame Warning
4. Click OK
This should help but may give some stuttering output.
Ehm, I partially agree.
The way BlackMagic has to provide a way to playback footage over their video cards is a limitation made by Adobe. It's an extremely inconvinient and outdated way of playback. Playback should have NOTHING to do with the codec I use in my timeline.
You can say I should edit in a native timeline, but playback over my external monitors is essential.
So the question remains.
Thanks for the advice.
I already have the dropped frames warning off.
1. What card do you have?
2. Which drivers version are you using for the BMD card?
3. Mac OSX or Windows?
4. When the playback stops, do you see a small red icon down right in Pr's user interface and if yes, what does it say when you double click on it?
If i remeber correctly the Turn Off Dropped Frame Warning is a per timeline setting. I am not at the editing station now, so i can't check.
I assumed that 1280p50 was a typo in your first post and that you actually mean 720p50. Am i correct?
Four questions, four answers please!
Thanks for your reply.
1. BlackMagic Decklink HD Extreme.
2. BlackMagic Design desktop video 8.2 (they recently changed their DeckLink software to Desktop Video)
3. Mac OSX 10.6.8.
4. Yes, I do get the dropped frames during playback warning. However - not always. And this is even when I have the warning off in my timeline settings.
You are right, 720p50.
Five questions, five answeres
/Roger, over and out.
O.k, i have not seen those issues, that the playback stops despite that the Turn Off Dropped Frame Warning is checked. I am on a Windows computer though.
Try to contack BMD via their Support Center and see if they can help:

Maybe so. But if the issue only occurs in a BM preset, then you're more likely to get that resolved taking the issue up directly with BM (or at least, you may do better also taking it up with them). That's why I suggested the test, to see if it happens with all sequences, or just BM presets.
