Hi, I have a camera that puts out 1080p at 29.97 (or 25) fps, over SDI. I got a Blackmagic Mini Recorder to grab it with. In jit.qt.grab, I can select the "Blackmagic HD 1080" device, but the input list only shows 1080p 23.976 or 24; or 1080i 59.94 etc. - no 1080p/29.97. I even tried with the new qtkit grabber. Same thing happens if I try to capture in Final Cut 7. But if I use Blackmagic Media Express, it works.
I asked Blackmagic tech support, and they said:
Final Cut Pro 7 uses a legacy version of QuickTime that was developed before those formats were supported by our hardware.
Third party softwares that use a more recent version of QuickTime should be able to access these format with no problems.
As we do not include support for applications such as Max/MSP in our drivers I would recommend checking that they do support our cards and are compatible."
I guess "a more recent version of QuickTime" means AVFoundation? Which is not supported in Jitter? Is it actually not possible for Blackmagic to support 1080p/29.97 capture for "old fashioned" QuickTime, or are they just not interested, and some other company's capture device could work?
I'd much appreciate a solution to get this video into Jitter. Different hardware, some other Blackmagic-enabled Jitter object, maybe another application (free?) that could grab and send via syphon?
