Is there a 64bit version of SCRATCH which runs on Vista?

No.

Limiting factor is always Nvidia driver development for SDI output. SDI capable drivers are currently only available on XP & Server 2003.

Interestingly enough Nvidia released Vista 64bit drives today for non SDI Quadra FX 5600/5800 cards:

Hopefully SDI Vista 63bit drivers will follow suit soon!

That's sort of good news, but I think 64 bit drivers have been available for a while (at least XP 64), but never anyhthing resembling an SDI capable driver...

Clearly there's a demand, but maybe we have to wait for Windows 7.

We are working hard internally on 64-bit.

Embedded audio and timecode are not currently supported in the NVidia API for the SDI cards. Although the cards are technically capable of doing these things, until it is enabled in the API, nobody can access it.

Best,

Will embedded audio work with the red rocket as a replacement for the sdi daughter card?

But does it run or not? I donīt care about sdi output, i would just like to know if it work. Redcine works fine in vista 64.

Audio embedders are available from numerous manufacturers, both analog and digital. Blackmagic has one for under $500.
