    Which BMD Desktop Video version certified with MC8.2.0?

    I'm having issues with 10.3.2, anyone has other setups that are working solid?

    Avid is really missing a clear webpage with a matrix for all version of all it's components and their compatibility.

    Had major issues with BM i/o on a number of systems earlier in the week. Tried all the V10 drivers and some of the V9 drivers. All hopelessly laggy. Swapped in an AJA card and problems resolved.

    I may have to abandon BM on the systems that don't need Resolve. It's just not cutting it in terms of performance and stability of updates. AJA however is much better.

    Re: Which BMD Desktop Video version certified with MC8.2.0?

    Hello,

    Same here issue after issue with the Blackmagic card Decklink sdi on my media COmposer 8.2. As soon as I press play get timeout errors in the broadcast monitor in Avid. At the Jigsaw 4k event in London last week I brought up in the room will verison 8.3 be any better with Blackmagic cards but the rep from Avid seemed to think the Blackmagic cards were functioning fine.

    I dont have the budget for the AJA cards and I have limited space as using Resolve on the same machine. I am just curious why version after version of the Decklink drivers causes nothing but frustration, crashes and new problems. What is different about the way AJA are halding the Avid SDK for using their cards in Avid Media Composer. I am suprised Blackmagic can't get their cards to work now seeing we have had problems since vrsion 7 of Media Composer using Blackmagic. At the moment I am cutting in software only mode as trimming, sliding clips, playing back in like wlaking through glue when I enable the decklink card.

    9.9.3 is the most solid driver. Ive tried them all. Something broke after that one, and for whatever reason both Avid and Blackmagic havent come up with any solution but 9.9.3 works solid when it comes th scub, and trimming. 

    Avid has continually acknowledged the problem, but alas still no fixs.

    Re: Which BMD Desktop Video version certified with MC8.2.0?

    We are seeing the same issues here.  We just finished installing 8 new Mac Pros running MC 8.2 with the BMD UltraStudio 4k on driver 10.3.2.  I want to roll back to the 9.9.3 driver but can't find it on the BMD website.  It goes from 9.9.2 to 10.1.  Can some one point me to where I can get the 9.9.3 driver?

     

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the information.

     

    Just an update.  We've noticed greater stability on our test machine if we run MC 8.1 and Blackmagic Desktop video driver 10.2.3
