Hi. I just got a Kona 3 with a dual link fB array. The mac is a dual quad core. Can anyone tell me if it is possible to capture and work NTSC VIDEO in a 444 uncompressed RGB 10 Bits project?

Hi marco. Spanish speaker?
My problem is that within FCP i do no find the correct settings for this. I just find uncompress 10 bit 422.

Unfortunately my Spanish is limited to incomplete sentences! My German is even worse. Oh how I dishonor my parents, LOL!
You’ll probably have to make a custom setting for it from scratch. Dual-stream 10-bit RGB 4:4:4 isn’t a commonly used format. I’d wager less than 1% of the entire FCP community uses it. Making a new custom preset is a snap.
What is your source?

yes, but the hard thing is that Kona recongnizes that setting

marco……polo. Like I’m sure you’ve never heard that one before. How do you make a custom 444 setting? in fcp6
Is that the color red you want to use?

I don’t think it will work unless it’s HD.

there is NO WAY to capture 10bit Dual Link RGB from an NTSC source as NTSC – (NTSC is only YUV anyway) Dual Link content is only supported by SMPTE in 1080
You can capture single link 10bit YUV and convert to RGB but do not do that with FCP – it does not do it correctly ( all YUV / RGB conversions are done in QT at 8bits)
RGB captures are usually only from HDCAMSR tapes or from a DPX or Cineon Still seq.

If it’s a 4:4:4 HD source, and you just want a downrezzed 4:4:4 RGB file (not sure why – animation project?), you’ll have to capture it in HD first, then use software to convert it.
