Default Problems with video image on preview window

Hi,

Ive just installed v4.5 for Edius. I use DV Raptor RT2 in my system.

When I play a video, no image will be displayed on the preview window.

All I get is the sound.

When I stop the video, the current frame appears on the preview window, disappearing as soon as I play the video back again.

What can I do to sort out the problem?

Thanks.

Can you tell us what your Hardware Settings are for DVRaptor RT2? You can find this under the "Settings" menu.

Ok, everything appears correct there, so we now look to the video card - what chipset does it use?

Before we get into too many things, let me ak the obvious. Did you downlaod 4.51 from the US site or 4.5 from Japan? The Jp DL was for software only.

Default download version and videocard chipset

Hi,

I downloaded the file from canopus.com, this must be the US site.

I have a Gainward with nvidia 6800 gt chipset.

I updated the NVIDIA driver on my system and that solved it for me.

Hi,

I had the latest drivers 162.18 already installed. Just in case I did reinstall them and still have the same problem.

Please add a color clip to the Bin, and put that in the timeline. That will eliminate the problem being with the footage.

For some weird reason, I have done exactly what you mention on your message, which is exactly the same I was doing before, and it works now.

I wonder if having reinstalled the graphic drivers, plus having restarted the PC has made it.

Thanks.
