    Catalina - Beta MC2020.2 - Video output?

    I'm runnning 10.15.3 and getting no video output tool/video on client monitor. Using the Intensity Pro 4k card. Audio is ok though. Is this just one of those beta limitations?

    Hi ES1,

      I have to double check but I'm not certain if those drivers are supported yet on Catalina. 

    @chris Bove - Do you know more about this?

    Keith.

    Thanks for the response. Blackmagic Design's drivers were last updated in October, so you're probably right. It says Catalina support but only for MC 2019.

    Although there is no 4k output from MC. I set the BMD output for 4k and launch MC. As soon as I select the project and it reads the user settings, it changes to 1080 output.

    Re: Catalina - Beta MC2020.2 - Video output?

    I've got a BM UltraStudio Mini Monitor, and I don't seem to be able to get anything out of it via the HDMI cable into my LG 4K tv. The output is set to 108025p, which should be no problem. Is it because I'm using a Thunderbolt3 - 2 converter? (it's an Apple one, so should be good) Could someone point me in the direction of the most up to date drivers? I've installed the Blackmgic Video Setup app, version 11.5

     

    cheers

    You can get them from the Black Magic Design website. "Desktop Video" version 11.5

    Make sure your monitor accepts 25p over HDMI. Some only take 23/24p and 50i and 60i.

    Also, I understand it is recommended to install MC before installing BMD Video.

    Re: Catalina - Beta MC2020.2 - Video output?

    I’ve downloaded and installed it on my MacBook Pro 15 (Retina, Mid 2015) but I don’t see any change - please let me know what else I need to do? AVID MC was already installed.

    Re: Catalina - Beta MC2020.2 - Video output?

    Did you try a 50i project/signal? Just to make sure that your monitor accepts 25p. Not all do.

    Also: did you perhaps toggle the hardware inside MC?

    Re: Catalina - Beta MC2020.2 - Video output?

    My issue is not with the monitor - I am using my laptop to edit a project at 23.97fps and have no problems - what I need to do is export my cuts as QT clips and there seems no way to do this except to output mxf files and convert them using 3rd party software.  How does BM Desktop Video help with exporting QT from Avid?

    well, this is a thread about the BM output specifically. The driver wont help with QTs not sure anyone here said it would. Are you in the right thread? 

     

    As fat as QT's there is another thread going for that. 

     

    You cant output QT at all plain and simple. Its a limitation of the beta and clearly mentioned in the readme. 

     

    In the meantime - I would export OP1 (legacy) and convert in a different program. Thats the best we got for now.
