  • Hi there, just wondering if the Blackmagic video recorder (VIDREC) is compatible with the latest release of OSX (Yosemite 10.10)? Thank you. Renae

    Hi Renae,

    The short answer is yes.

    All of these BlackMagic devices use a set of drivers and software that Black Magic call Desktop Video. The desktop video OS compatibility will determine whether the unit can be used with the OS you have.

    The following is the most recent release of Desktop Video, and as you can see the OS Compatibility is listed under the system requirements.


    https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/support/readme/35077

    You can also download legacy versions of Desktop video if you want to use an older OS, and these are in the downloads column on the left side of the blackmagic support page


  • Why can I not get playback on my new Atomos Shogun 4K RAW Recorder ?

    The playback on screen feature was not enabled in the previous firmware release. The Shogun feature release schedule can be downloaded here. Screen playback on the Atomos Shogun 4K RAW Recorder has been included in the latest update AtomOS6.11 from Atomos available for download here.
