    Can my Kona Lhi card that I use with FCP7 also be used with PP5 on the same Mac? Can the drivers co-exist?

    Yep, the Driver for the card itself is the same.

    You just need to install the CS 5.5 plug-ins so Premiere Pro can use the card. Be aware that as of right now there is sluggish performance from Premiere Pro / AJA Kona and the workaround to improve performance is to set the Preferences > Player to Adobe.

    Also you need to set the Preferences > Audio Hardware to anything BUT the AJA Kona.

    Same for PP CS5 (not 5.5)?

    I believe you have to step up to 5.5 for the latest plug-ins, but you can look at the Kona LHi Support page to find out for sure. I believe there is a plug-in for CS5, but 5.5 is definitely very stable.

    Just heard from AJA and current software has a known issue that does not allow component analog output. I have composite (only as a “video presence detector”) and HDMI. I don’t have an SDI monitor so don’t know if that works. AJA says component analog will be in next version.

    Both FCP7 and PP5 work OK on same card, just need to save preset for each for quick setup.

    Interesting….
    I’m running FCS2 and CS5 together… and I’d already installed the recomended codec and switched the Premiere preferences, but don’t get an SDI output from the Kona card…?

    [David Scott] “I’m running FCS2 and CS5 together… and I’d already installed the recomended codec and switched the Premiere preferences, but don’t get an SDI output from the Kona card…?”

    The latest plug-in from AJA is for CS 5.5 I believe.

    Thanks for the reply Walter.
    Yes the lastest Kona driver is for CS5.5 but I installed the one for CS5 – version: “AJA Mac Plug-ins for Adobe CS5 Version 8.5”
    As the driver and CS version were the same I was suprised not to get a picture on the external display…..?!
    Wondered if anyone had that combination working?

    For what it’s worth, with the same driver I get composite and HDMI.
