Blackmagic Intensity Shuttle (Thunderbolt) with Black magic pocket

  • Hello, does somebody tried to use the Bmpkt with intensity shuttle(thunderbolt) , to get in isadora(1 3 06) or isadora 2.0?

  • Izzy Guru

    Yes I have one. Works fine for me.

  • Thanks you very much Skulpture

    You will have to play around with the settings, they can be a little tricky to set up as all frame rates, resolutions, etc have to match in the BM software and then in the chosen software (isadora). Once you do it a few times it's easy enough to remember.

  • Hello Sculpture, yes, it´s little tricky to find the the good set up. I didńt fixed it. tried to get in my black magic pocket in the shuttel thunderbold , but nothing is going on in isadora 1.0.6 et 2.0. Same think with Final Cut Pro 7. Have you got à idea? Thanks Best regards

  • Izzy Guru

    What do you have going into the shuttle thunderbolt? Camera?

  • Hello Sculpture, That ´s it, my camera goes inside but i tried many solutions without result. got Mac mini with 8g ram , i launched the driver from Blackmagic, . got another question. There's no video setting with 25fps, is it normal ? Thank you very much Bruno

  • Dear @bruno,

    To be clear, there are two ways to capture from Blackmagic.
    First is the QuickTime driver, which will appear along with the FaceTime internal web cam. This is not the most efficient way if you've got the 2.0 upgrade. Instead, it is better to use the direct capture from Blackmagic. To do that, go to the "Driver" menu in the Live Capture Settings and choose "Blackmagic"
    I find the frame rate choices confusing too. So, to be sure I've got the right setting, I always test first in Blackmagic's Media Express program. For example, my camera outputs HD 1080i 59.94\. You must match this when you capture. For my camera, if I choose 1080p 30, then I will not see an image. Anyway, once you see the image in Media Express you can be sure it will work with the same setting in Isadora.
    For 2.0.5 you must set the resolution to Native. In the upcoming release (which we're testing now and will release as soon as we humanly possible) you can capture at any resolution. But for the moment, you must use Native.
    Hopefully that makes things clear.
    Best Wishes,

  • Thanks Mark , i have to up grade my 2.0 to follow your advice, it Will be done soon. Best regards Bruno
