I'm making a greenscreen installation with a standard definition DV camera. The computer is a mac mini with a fully updated 10.6. The camera is attached to the mac mini by a 9pin Firewire 800 to 4pin Firewire 400 cable. Max is version 5.1.3.
When the camera is left on and the computer is rebooted, if I open up a jit.qt.grab component, the stream is black until I unplug and replug the firewire cable. The jit.qt.grab opens without errors. Opening, closing, and reopening the component doesn't do anything.
