Mini Monitor downscales 1080p50 to 720p50 with Media Compos

PostFri Dec 07, 2018 6:23 pm

Hi All,

Just discovered that in a 1080p50 Media Composer 2018.9 project, the Blackmagic Mini Monitor device outputs 720p50 on the HDMI output. I found no way to force it to output 1080i50 instead.

I understand it will not support 1080p50, but why does it downconvert to 720p50 instead of 1080i50 ???
The connected monitor (TV set) accepts anything up to 1080p60 and 1080i50 projects output 1080i50 just fine.

Must be a problem in Avid, since I can output in Resolve just fine, both in 1080p25 or 1080i50.

I can also output 1080p25 and 1080i50 from a corresponding project.
The problem is the output from a 1080p50 project.

Not that suprising.. The Mini Monitor and Mini Recorder do not support 1080P50/60 ;)

I can play from a timeline in DR with 1080p50 just fine, both to 1080p25 or 1080i50. The frame rate under "Playback" in the settings will be shown as 25 then.

Thanks for clarification...I'll see with Avid
