Sorry on the learning curve at the steep end – another post – but a quick one:
Is it possible to turn Kona output off temporarily? According to the manual this is accomplished in playback settings inside the sequence settings menu – but the Kona software appears to have hijacked this page with its own menu.
Spent ages getting it to work (and it does) – now I can’t turn it off!

… in fact I can’t see how to turn Kona output either off or on in Premiere, retrospectively, once a sequence has been created.

My issue is the Kona output slowing down the responsiveness of the timeline – apologies I thought I’d mentioned that – but it was in another post. Otherwise, a great idea!

read this elsewhere – tested it out and it works very well – so for the archive:
To improve edit performance using Premiere and Kona – edit in a non Kona Sequence, like ProRes (for now), then drop this as a nested sequence into a Kona sequence. This way one can effectively turn the Kona output ON and OFF by switching between the sequences during editing. Fast, effective, and no need to re-render when switching to Kona output.

Are there any plans to change this? It’s very simple to do this in FCP and even Motion.

see my post below – for now you can do this by nesting the non-Kona sequence into a Kona sequence – and jumping back and forth – works well – and no need to re-render for the Kona sequence.

Yeah I know the trick. I’m just hoping this is something that can be addressed. Every other program I have that uses Kona – AE, FCP, Motion, Nuke – can all easily turn the Kona on or off.
