The problem is not with my graphics card, which is an ATI Radeon HD5770 with 1MB of VRAM. The Intensity Pro is a video capture card which has analog video and HDMI In/Out:
FCP X is supposed to recognize cards such as this to allow for Broadcast Monitoring as of 10.0.3:
I also have FCP 6.0.6 running in OS 10.6.8. The Intensity Pro shows up A-OK. So, why isn't this working in FCP X?
Blackmagic hardware only supports FCP 6 & 7:
A recent beta release driver from Blackmagic purports to support FCX, but it's quite flakey. And remember that FCX 10.0.3's support for "broadcast monitoring" (in other words, real monitoring), is in beta, too.
So I would suggest doing your color correction in Final Cut Studio until the two betas become real releases.
Im having the same problem.
Im sure it says that it is supported in FCX.
I can get audio to output via, hdmi, but not the viewer.
Send viewer to external monitor is GREYED out...
The mac is seeing the external monitor, but not FCX.
Im awaiting a email back from Blackmagic....???
Desktop Video 9.2 beta 1 for Mac OS X is available for download now and is free of charge for all Blackmagic Design customers. This update includes support for all current DeckLink, Multibridge, Intensity and UltraStudio models.
Broadcast monitoring in Final Cut Pro X 10.0.3 allows video output to external monitors and other equipment using the SDI, HDMI or analog video outputs from Blackmagic Design video hardware.
Desktop Video 9.2 beta 1 includes a new control panel for selecting the video output format from Final Cut Pro X for output to devices such as broadcast quality monitors, HDTVs and projectors, so you can see exactly what your master will look like in television colorspace.
Is there a list of cards that work with FCPX? I'm also wondering if there are cards or external devices that are recognized by FCPX as a capture device. I'd love to be able to record a (non-firewire) live input directly into FCPX without having to use some other capture software and importing the capture.
