I have just installed Pr Pro 5.5 on a Mac Pro but playback will not work properly through my Intensity Pro PCI card (which I use to output to a broadcast monitor via HDMI).
In Pr 5.5 I find it is possible to select 'Blackmagic Capture' in a new project, and also 'Blackmagic Playback' in Preferences, but in 'Playback Settings' the Blackmagic option isn't there - just 'DV' or 'None'.
Video in the prewiew window (on the left) plays out through the Intensity, but video WILL NOT play from the timeline. Sound is OK.
I am new to Premier having bought it to use along with F.C.P.7 which is on the same Mac. FCP playback through the Intensity card always worked fine and still does!
Can anyone help?!
My Mac is running 10.6.8 Snow Leopard. I also have instaled the latest driver version of Blackmagic Desktop Video.
On a PC, you have to create a new sequence using a Blackmagic codec. Once done. the Intensity Pro should channel the HDMI to the external monitor.
If you use an Adobe preset to create a new sequence, the timeline will not be output to the monitor.
Yes! You were completely right.
I hadn't noticed the 'Blackmagic' settings folder after I'd installed the later drivers. I might have spotted it eventually, but you have saved me a ton of grief. Thank you loads!
