    UI delay

    The world of editing is going more and more to using consumer monitors (think LG c8 UHD) which have no SDI in and fairly significant latency due to image processing.

    If you add up all the accumulated latency that comes with getting the picture and sound to one of these with good IO card (AJA or BM) it is annoying to edit with, as Marks on the fly are not accurate (ignore human reaction time). This is in addition to the issue of the UI monitor being earlier than the "broadcast" monitor.

    It would be great to have a working UI delay that can be adjusted by the user that is separate from the SDI path so that we can get what we see in the UI and timeline in sync with what we see and hear at the "broadcast monitor".

    Re: UI delay

    Honestly I had forgotten about that console tool. But memory says it did not do what I wanted.

    But thanks for reminding me.  I will try again.

    Cheers,

    Re: UI delay

    So based on a nudge from Job, I did a quick test today of moncondel.  And it has potential, but ....

    It seems to break my AJA Kona3g output in a bad way.

    When I put a value into it and then play, all is good.  But if I attempt to move frame by frame, picture output of the AJA is frozen where it stopped playing last.

    This was a bug in an old driver version that was fixed.  Bet they never tested with this console command!

    I may have written to quickly.  I am seeing the "frozen image while frame advancing" issue with moncondel set at 0.  I had updated to the latest AJA driver when I installed 2018.11 (AJA 15.0.1).  A roll back to 14.0.2 fixed that in normal editing.  Moncondel also does not have the issue.  Off to write to AJA support .....

    And thanks Job!
