Engine wont start with decklink card

Postby vivid » Tue Apr 05, 2011 5:29 pm


I have just installed a Black Magic Design DeckLink HD Pro card in my PC. I get a message when I try to toggle full screen: "The engine failed to start, please check the display preferences."

If I select one of the monitors on the nVidea graphics card then it works fine but selecting the DeckLink card gives me this error. I have tried I think everything combination of engine accuracy resolution and time reference settings. Nothing results in it working.

Does anyone else use the card succesfuly?

Its a capture card, not a GFX card suitable for video rendering. It can do one video stream (or two if your using 3D sterioscopic) plus one still graphic key, not render a mix of eight video layers. Also if you intend to use any of the video inputs they are automatically routed to all of the video outputs for monitoring purposes.
