Inputting/outputting LTC via SDK

Hey all

On the back of the UltraStudio 4K there are 2 timecode ports.

Can anybody confirm whether the only way to interface with these from the BlackMagic SDK is with the following function calls:

Code: Select all
IDeckLinkVideoFrame::GetTimecode
IDeckLinkMutableVideoFrame::SetTimecode


I.e. is the LTC timecode signal always associated with a video frame, and if so, does the BlackMagic signal automatically select between using an SDI timecode signal or the LTC timecode input port?

Thanks and regards
Elliot

BlackMagic developer support confirms that we need to first call:

Code: Select all
IDeckLinkConfiguration::SetFlag(bmdDeckLinkConfigUseDedicatedLTCInput,  < setting > )


Or select the LTC source in the BlackMagic control panel
