    Blackmagic Intensity Pro 4k No Longer Works with Avid

    It used to capture - now I can't get a preview.  No input.  

    Man, I am sure tired of trying to get analog stuff into my Avid.  I have never found a product that regularly works - they all seem to break on a very regular basis.  A while ago, I bought a Blackmagic Intensity Pro 4k, and it worked for a few months.  Then that too broke with MC.  I don't know if it's MC, or the 3rd parties that continually break MC, but I really wish I didn't have to fight constantly just to get some video into my Avid.  

    Has anyone else figured out a workaround to get these products to work together again?  Using latest driver from Blackmagic.  10.6 or 11.6 or somethign like that I think.

    Have you thought about capturing it with BM software.  Add the media to a  free version of Resolve projects media page and deliver to Resolve's Avid Export to transcode the media to a MC friendly format?   Resolve happily coexists  with MC on the same computer. You can set a number folder in your Avid MediaFiles folder as the destination folder for your transcodes. MC finds them as soon as it index's that folder.  

    I like using a new number folder for each captures export. Then I add a project identifier to the folders number name after MC has indexed it. This lets me drag each project named folder's database file into a new bin in MC as a first step in media management.

    Most of the clients who have to do analogue capturing get a system setup and working and never update it!

    Its then just a cpature machine. No OS upgrades. No driver updates etc.

    There are so many factors to juggle that its more reliable to stick with a proven setup.

    Very true here, I keep a 2008 Mac Pro with MC 5.5 and an Adrenaline HD for almost all analog captures. Occasionally a Windows 7 machine setup with Resolve 14, BM Intensity Pro 4k, and  5 year old BM Desktop software is more appropriate for some analog captures.

    Ah the Adrenaline, it was a sad day when I had to throw mine out after nearly 10 years of faithful service.

    On 2020.12 with DV 11.7, I don't have a problem here capturing component/composite via an Utlrastudio Mini 4K. What I did have to do though was retain the Addendum Rosetta rs422, for remote on the Ultrastudio to function with Avid and Resolve.
