Thanks for the great tutorial!!
I've been using FCP7 with an Intensity card to capture tethered by 30' HDMI cable 'live', bypassing the mpeg conversion, etc. of my inexpensive video camera. I've been waiting for the Scarlet release to purchase a 'real' camera.
I purchased Production Premium 5.5 for Win7 when FCP X was released, my way of voting with my wallet.
I'd like to know if I can shoot Scarlet tethered like that, out of the hdmi. The hdmi goes from the camera to an HDMI switch which puts one output to a 22" monitor and sends the other upstairs to the Mac Pro..
It makes it very easy to shoot, get the levels perfect and immediately review the footage.
I was thinking that if I could also shoot 4K with Scarlet at the same time to flash, this would have some advantages, but I'm curious if any come to mind?
1. If I'm at 4K in the Scarlet, what comes out of the HDMI? Is it re-sampled 1080p from the 4K? Does sound also come out?
2. I've never used Premiere at all yet. Can I shoot tethered using Premiere 5.5 with the Scarlet? I've got a Matrox mx02 mini in addition to the Intensity card
3. One last question. How much time does it take to create final output, which for me has generally been h.264 sized for the web - and also one of the BluRay codecs.
I have a 2GB GTX 285 on my Win7 now, but am looking into upgrading the card.
