Thread: Blackmagic

  1. #1

    Question Blackmagic

    OK, I have a bit of time on my hands, so want to see if I can better aquainted with Vegas. (6.5) One of the things I disliked about it before was the preview. Apparently this can be much improved with a Blackmagic card. So can anyone tell me which one I need? And where's the cheapest place to buy it? I'm in the UK.

    I am certainly no expert here, but i understood that the blackmagic card just adds an sdi interface (a very high b width video standard), if they do make a 'vegas accelerator' I will fight you for the first.

    Smoother preview = faster cpu (s)

    Yup MArk is right - its not an accelorator at all.

    While I love Vegas i find this to be its biggest downfall, mind you worrd on the grapevie is that they are working with hardware sony gurus to provide something in future versiions

    Yes, I read that somewhere, I am sure what I saw hinted at a cell processor based card... now that really would be cool, and sooo fast.

    So I'm stuck with previewing via firewire?

    Yes - or on a pc mon, whats the problem with this for you ? A decnt cpu will render most stuff in real time, esp if u use lower quality settings.
