NEW Blackmagic Intensity v1.8.4 drivers

Blackmagic released new WinXP v1.8.4 drivers today for the Intensity Pro. I just installed the drivers and I can confirm that Vegas will now both read and write Intensity Pro MJPEG files!!! I've been waiting almost a year for this to happen and I am thrilled! I'll check out the rest of the Intensity/Vegas integration over the next few days and report back to this thread. So far, so good.


(EDIT: 1920x1080 MJPEG files do not play at full frame rate in Vegas, but the fact that they play at all is a major step forward. The same files will play at full quality and frame rate in Premiere CS3, probably due to the fact that the Intensity is using its on-board hardware MJPEG decoder when being run from within Premiere.)

John, if you're a user of the standalone Cineform packages (Neo HDV for example), my understanding is that you can select Cineform AVI as the recording file format - not sure if it is BM cap software seeing the codec, or Neo seeing the BM card.

In any event, I'd be very interested in your impressions of using Intensity acquisition and timeline playback with BM MJPEG format vs. Cineform.
