Basically when I try to capture from DVCAM through my decklink extreme my system crashes. I have trashed the perfs in FCP, tried digitizing from the Blackmagic Deck control window (which won’t work either) I have tried to capture using firewire and YRB with the RS4222 deck control thing. (not a moron just not cable/setup savvy really)
I have a Dual 2.5 G5 4gig SDRAM running FCP 4.5 HD, AE 6.5 et al.
If you can point me in a direction…I’d be grateful
It seems I have to beg to get help. Really I am in a pinch. I am not out of my league or in over my head. I have read the flipping manual and nothing zip zero zilch, I have tried everything in the book on this particular problem and nothing is working. I need to figure it out…Could my card be decklink extreme be faulty?
There is no “Blackmagic” DV codec. The Blackmagic codec is uncompressed. Try using one of the “easy setups” so that the pixel format will match your input. You maybe trying to capture to a nonexistent codec.
can i ask you if you’ve downloaded the latest 4.8 BM drivers?
Which os and Quicktime are you Running?
could you let me know if you have antivirus program on?
Try something for me.
connect your deck to the g5 throught firewire,
in fcp Go to easy setup ( ctrl q ) and select
dv-ntsc if in the states, create new sequence so it will
register the new settings.. try to capture, is this working??
close your project
now unplug the firewire,
connect your yuv or y cable to the deck,do not forget rs422
go to esasy setup again only this time select Blackmagic dv ntsc,
create a new sequence,
then go to log and capture, make sure your deck is set to remote then
fcp should see your card without a problem..
If you have an antivirus program disable it when you do video work.
I have downloaded the latest drivers, I did the easy set up thing, and the hooking up via firewire and rs422. I got the same result in both setups. It would record about a second of vid then stop on a frame and digitize the frame till I told it to stop or it crashed (which it did most often) I do have virus software on it but I have now at your recommendation disabled it and am trying that next.
