BlackMagic Cinema Camera 4K EF + Thunderbolt on Windows

PostSat Dec 23, 2017 2:40 am

Hello people,

I think I need some help, I've got a BlackMagic Camera a Thundbolt Cable and an iMac Late 2012 with Windows 10 as Bootcamp. How can I use my BlackMagic on Windows, the problem is:
On macOS I can use the BlackMagic via Thunderbolt on OBS, but there is no chance to use my Capture Card. On Windows I can use my Capture Card on OBS but not my BlackMagic Camera.

I installed already Desktop Video 1.9.7 like on macOS but it didn't work.

Anyone an idea?

Ok, got a solution for the problem. You have to boot the Camera with Thunderbolt Cable and then start Windows, now u can use the camera in OBS or something like this. In fact the problem is when you use bootcamp on mac, there is no plug an play to the devices on thunderbolt port while running Windows. The devices on this port get handle as PCIe Cards. So when you unplug or shutdown the camera during run Windows, it will crash, and you have to reinstall the Firmware on your Camera.
