iMAC 2017 Intensity Shuttle USB-c

PostSun Sep 16, 2018 2:54 pm

Good day all,

New to this product and forum.

I want to connect a Canon HFG25 via HDMI to an Intensity Shuttle and then to my iMAC (2017) using a Thunderbolt <> USB-C lead.

I have not bought the Shuttle yet, I need to know it will work!!

Will I be able to detect both the video and the audio when I run OBS software on the iMAC?

If not what is the workaround.

Many thanks in advance.

You might run into trouble with the USB version of the Intensity Shuttle, only selective hardware/chipsets will work with this one, i use the Thunderbolt 2 version on my MacBook Pro (early 2015 13" 8GBram)
better convert from that one, or....... why do you choose the Intensity Shuttle ? since you are "only" using HDMI .... you want to use the analog inputs/outputs also ?
Check for other devices, also some devices wil not go as high 1080p60, check this when looking for a capture device, when this is needed.
equipment/software used:
UltraStudio Mini Recorder, Intensity Shuttle (Thunderbolt), ADVC-100 (DV/iLink/Firewire), Davinci Resolve 15 free version, Media Express, MPEGStreamclip, Avidemux
