    More Blackmagic Crashes Media Composer 8.2

    I am on Media Composer 8.2 on Windows 7 pro 64bit. I import an dnxhd file, by dragging my database file into the bin from my Avid Media Files folder.

    The video imports fine, if I have the Blackmagic hardware in my case Decklink SDI using verison 10 onwards tried 9 onwards as well. Even the latest 10.3.2. I try and play back the video in the source monitor dnxhd 30, dnxhd 175x for example. The video sticks but the audio VU meters are pulsing down and up like its jammed. I then get a Windows blue screeen saying System service exception decklink.sys and the entire system crashes. I am always having ecklink issues with Media composer since version 7, I think I should jus tmove towards an AJA or Matrox card as Blackmagic seem to be oblvious when you call or email them about Avid Media Composer support and think it should all be happily working together then blame Avid and say to contcat them. Can we for once and for all get Avid to lay down what the problems are geting Blackmagic video capture cartds working in any version of Media Composer 7-8. Also jkl, scrubbing a video I get constant black screens with white writing wanring me of a timeout when using Decklink from Blackmagic.

    Its like walking in glue and problem after problem with these Blackmagcic cards its un-useable.

    Hi Leo,


    I am having the same problem with my Multibridge.

    Plays fine just with video. ( DNx )

    With Audio it crashes the App plus blue screen system..

    Spoken with BMDesign a number of times and nothing is done.


    Please AVID, take a look.

    Re: More Blackmagic Crashes Media Composer 8.2

    So Blackmagic wrote me to try the 10.1.4 driver again - and ja this is the one working best with avid. its much faster - the problem is, that the windows audio driver is then not working in this driver release. i use the tool asiolink with this you can route your system sound to the blackmagic asiodriver. this seams for me to be a working solution. For my studio 4k

    But my main problem that h264 footage run out of sync when its amaed don`t solve. so what....

    kind regards
