    AJA IO Express with Media Composer 2021

    Hi all, 

     

    I'm looking into purchasing an AJA IO Express box, Was wondering if it was compatible with MC 2021?

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes, it should be. Just read the ReadMe documentation for the drivers.

    Thank you for your input! Do you think it would work on my amd Windows system? Is it compatible with most things?

     

    Thanks again

    Re: AJA IO Express with Media Composer 2021

    I have used several AJA IO products through the years.  And I have always been impressed with them. But ....

    Blackmagic has really hit them hard due to Resolve.  Resolve will only use Blackmagic IO products.  Stop.  A Blackmagic IO product is, in essence, the dongle for the free or even paid Resolve software.  And while the Resolve software is very impressive, the software for many of the Blackmagic hardware products is less so.  But if you have ANY thoughts about using Resolve, you need to consider this.

    Sorry for my slow response Jef, Just read this. 

    I colour grade/correct in baselight for avid, and do my online editing in avid symphony/boris FX, so, it isn't an issue for me :)

    Thanks for your input!
