    Hello Kang,

    syncVUE was a product produced by my company Intelligent Gadgets. I sold the product rights to Callwave, Inc. where I am now Chief Software Designer. syncVUE is being superceded by new collaboration products called FUZE Meeting and FUZE Movie.

    If you’re interested in learning more about these products, visit our website: https://www.fuzemeeting.com/. FUZE Meeting also works on the iPhone and later this month on Blackberry Bold, Storm and Curve 8900.

    If you need any additional info, feel free to write me at: mbuday@callwave.com

    Sincerely,
    Michael Buday

    All the best,

    Hi Kristian,

    Thanks for your advice. It was indeed a reference issue. Setting the DVW’s OUTPUT REF switch to INPUT fixed the problem. However, I was feeding both the card and the DVW house sync, so I don’t see why this was an issue with the switch set to EXT REF.

    Thanks John, I’ll try that. An answer I received on the FCP-L suggested switching the deck’s OUTPUT REF to INPUT during edit-to-tape, which also worked.

    Wow! That was fast! Thanks Kristian. I guess it wold be accurate to say “Good Morning” to you?

    Well, Good Night from Los Angeles!

    The fact that I can render to the RGB codec without any issues leads me to believe that Shake is rendering higher then 8-bits, but in any event – using the BYTE node in Shake to work at 16-bits or in FLOAT doesn’t change the look of the rendered output to the 4:2:2 codec. So – I’m stumped!

    The new MacPro seating bar is crap if you ask me. And yes, despite torquing it down, the cards still “float” around. I’m tempted to get rid of it and use plain old screws like most other computers!

    Hi Jeremy,

    You’re right, I’m actually using the Apple Uncompressed 10 bit 4:2:2 codec which is the one causing the banding issues. If I render out to the Blackmagic RGB codec, everything looks great – but I wanted to stay in the 4:2:2 codec since all the source media is already in that format, and I can maintain realtime performance if I keep everything the same.

    It appears to me that there is a problem with the Apple uncompressed codec, but I can’t be sure. I’ve tried the same exercise on both my PowerPC G5 and my MacPro and get the same results. Someone recommended on the Blackmagic forum uninstalling the Blackmagic codecs because they sometimes have a negative effect on the Apple codecs, but this didn’t work.

    Any help would be apreciated!

    OK, I tried uninstalling the Blackmagic drivers (I did this manually because I needed to re-download the installer to uninstall the drivers, but the Declink site was down).

    Anyway, I removed the drivers from the Library\QuickTime folder and verified that they no longer appeared as an option withing QT, but the problem is still there. It’s almost as if it’s outputting to an 8-bit or less bit depth. As I mentioned before, rendering out to RGB or BMP or other uncompressed formats looks great.

    So I apologise if this isn’t a Blackmagic issue, but what else could it be?

    I’ll give that a go George. Many thanks for your help, and I’ll let you know if that works.

    Hello Kristian and thanks for your quick response:

    >> The Blackmagic codecs (other than 8-bit (2vuy) and 10-bit RGB) are not available in Shake or FCP, only the Apple Uncompressed 4:2:2 codecs are. Can you verify which codec you’ve used? << Well, it says "Uncompressed 10-Bit 4:2:2" in the Shake/FCP options during export, but when I open the file in QT player and look at it's properties, it reports "Blackmagic 10-Bit". >> What version of our drivers do you have installed? << The very latest since a couple of days ago. >> Are you on a G5 or Intel Mac Pro? << Mac Pro >> What version is Shake? << v4.10.0606 I'll try uninstalling the drivers as you recommend, but FYI I digitized all the uprezzed footage via the Decklink card as uncompressed 10-bit 4:22, so if I uninstall the QT drivers, will I still be able to play this media? Thanks again, Michael Buday
