Red Explanation Mark

PostMon Feb 11, 2019 2:32 am

Ok so I just updated the software for BMPCC and now when I go to record it gives me a "Red Explanation" mark and it stops recording, does anybody have a solution for this problem? Thanks in advance!

That indicates that the card you're using to record on isn't able to sustain the write speeds for the format set, it starts dropping frames and stops. When you update to 6.1 all the setting go back to factory, so have a look at the settings.

Are you recording in ProRes? Try if you can record in DNG Raw. If you can record in raw and not in ProRes then you have the same issue as mine when I updated to 6.1 . BM tech support told me they are working on a fix. As to when, they did not say.

Yeah I am figuring it was something technical on there end and with the new update, because I switched back to 6.0 and everything was back fine, I see the update took out the ProRes I believe and that's what I was shooting with before, so I am going to wait for that bug fix and then update I hope!!

Yes, I feel a bit about Red this way myself, except its more a question mark too?
Often people deceive themselves so much they do not understand, even when the truth is explained to them.
