Hi everyone, hope you’re all staying safe and creative
Until now I’ve used Syphon Recorder to capture the output from VDMX, but I want to move to an external recorder on a HDMI output. 1080p at 60fps. There needs to be practically zero latency as the audio has to be perfectly synced.
I’ve been suggested the Blackmagic Video Assist: Is this as simple as running a cable from the Thunderbolt 2 port on my Macbook Pro into the HDMI port of the BM Video Assist and pressing record?
In the Projectile Objects post, it says all the devices from Cloner-Alliance work and spoof HDCP but there are many devices, and I’m assuming I’d be looking at the “Standalone Recording” devices rather than the “Capture and Stream” devices off their website?
From the reading I’ve done I’m guessing that I’d want one type of device to record my visual set from VDMX and another type of device to receive a camera feed into VDMX and output that to a screen (with minimum latency) - or is there something that can handle both?
Got some good tips on this Facebook post relating to a (now cancelled) gig where I’d have been receiving a video feed of a performer, Adrian Wyard suggested a thunderbolt Blackmagic Capture Device - is a “capture device” all about recording a video signal COMING IN to your computer from eg. a DSLR rather than recording the OUTPUT from VDMX as a movie file?
Right now the priority is recording high quality audiovisual mixes at as high a frame rate as possible with minimal lag. Willing to invest in something decent, hope this all makes sense.
Thank in advance!
