BMK UltraStudio 4K and Avid MC 2018.7

PostFri Aug 03, 2018 4:04 pm

Hi All,

I tried to upgrade my Media Composer to the latest 2018.7.1, but It won't recognized my UltraStudio 4K.
I downgraded MC back to 2018.5 and it sees my card again.

I'm on an iMac running 10.11.6 32GB Ram
Desktop Video Version 10.10. I did try 10.11, but nothing changed.

The folks at Avid said to check with the Blackmagic folks. Any idea?

Thx

Upgraded to High Sierra 10.13.6, Avid MC 2018.7.1 and BM 10.11.1

I had some fun and games with the Avid output - sometimes the BM driver thought I was outputting 3D, when I plainly wasn't. Switching through the formats seemed to sort it.
R15.0.b6 - testing on...

You don't necessary want latest drivers at all. Use ones which are specified in AVID info/guide.
This is ALWAYS an issue when parts come from different manufactures.

Thanks for the replies. I think I'm gonna wait until an updated version of MC comes out. It seems this version was pretty buggy for everyone on a bunch of fronts.

Thx!
