I was wondering if anybody has been monitoring directly off the Red Rocket card? Reading various threads here it seems that nobody is actually doing this.
That is to say it doesn't seem like people are hooking monitors directly to the Rocket card. I understand its only 8 bit and without the breakout box connections are limited to the funny little splitter DVI? cables that came with the card.
Anyway, I have been reveiwing rushes on RocketcineX 1740 on my Apple 30" Cinema display running off the ATI graphics card. When I hook the monitor directly to the ROcket Card using one of the outputs on the card and one side of one of the splitter cables I get a black screen no matter what i do. Also have tried from REDCINE-X 104 and get the same results when I select to monitor directly from the Rocket card. Also should note that I can only get about 11-15 fps speed out of REDCINE-X at full resolution(I have latest quad-core Nehalem) but full frame rate on RocketCine-X.
So just wondering what people are doing for best monitoring results?
Is there anyway to involve Kona cards. I have a Li-Ro installed.
Can REDCINE or REDROCKET use this sort of card for monitoring?
Thanks for any and all thoughts.
