Default BM Intensity Pro 4K Driver

I am using the suggested driver 10.5.4 for the BM Intensity Pro 4K, but wonder if anyone has used the latest driver 10.7 to get any advantages?

I have been using 10.7 and so far no problems. I think the one thing which has been added which may be useful is that you can use the BM software to downscale a 4K timeline to give an HD output. I never actually use it as I have a 4K screen anyway. Apart from that I cannot think of much advantages with EDIUS. You may need the new drivers for other software if you use them as well (Resolve, Premiere etc..).

As far as Blackmagic drivers go though, if it were not for the fact that I sell the stuff and need to try updates, I would work on the "if it ain't broke don't fix it" principle, so if it is working don't bother.

EDIT: if reading this post and seeing me say I have no problems please read below - I do have problems and you should not use the 10.7 drivers.

Thanks David, I like to keep drivers up to date...as long as they don't break anything.

So if you have used 10.7, I might give it a go.

It is quite easy to go back to old drivers. However just because I have not had issues it does not meant there aren't any. I was using 10.6.8 and it seemed to be ok and then suddenly I had a lot of times where the sound simply stopped playing. EDIUS was playing sound but the Intensity pro 4K was not. That was definitely a driver issue.

What does seem to be fixed: my intensity Pro 4K will now capture UHD from my GH4, which it did not before. What is not fixed - the component capture still has the incorrect brightness levels.

and this will remain unfixed because it is not fixable without replacing a chip

Well it seems that 10.7 doesn't work for me.

I opened a project in Edius 8.2 and the timeline plays at double speed. It is the same if I use the spacebar or the Play icon or the L key. If I use the OHCI ouput the timeline plays OK.

Any idea why this might be....if not I will simply go back to 10.5.4

Ha! I was just about to post here that the moment after I sent this Ringo in the tech department said "have you seen a bug where EDIUS plays back at double speed" which went way when we stopped using Blackmagic playback.

Odd I seem to have a machine which works, so I will dig further but as it has happened on at least two machines you should probably not use it.

As for whether Blackmagic will fix the component problem in software or not - they have told us they can and will, but have not done it. Until we have a software fix or firmware update we will assume they cannot.

My impression is that BM can push a firmware update as part of the driver/software update release process. (I recall seeing a firmware update scroll by the screen during in a driver update a year or so ago.) So if it can be fixed in firmware, they should be able to push the component problem fix. The issue is more where it fits on their priority list, and if no one is pinging them for it it may not get done.

They do update the firmware frequently, and they have told us that it will fix the component issue. Anton is convinced they cannot fix it in firmware. I always say that you should never buy something on the basis of what someone says it will do but on what it actually does. That has been true in the computing industry for the last 20 years.

Now we have tried more machines here and are getting this double speed playback on practically all of them. Most of my recent work has been on a very effects heavy project so a lot of the time it does not play back at full speed. Possibly I just missed this completely but the main thing is, if you are using EDIUS DO NOT USE the 10.7 drivers.

David, thank you for confirming the issue. Is there a way you can let BM know about this?
