Shut Down Previzion Before Starting BRec
Previzion and BRec access the same hardware resources of the video capture card. Starting one program while the other program is still running can blue screen the system.
For example, when exiting Previzion, wait a moment after the window has disappeared and make sure that the sfServer window is no longer active.
To start video in BRec: Start->All Programs->Merlin->BRec1.
Setting Video Inputs
Video->Input Select HD->HDSDI1 or HDSDI2
Opening Monitor Window
Video->Open Source Window
Setting Incoming Video Format
- Video->Input Select HD->see list
Analyzing Incoming Video Signal
Select Video->Video/Genlock Settings to bring up the above panel. This is extremely useful, as it will automatically identify the type of incoming video, shown under the Video Standard line. In the above image, the video standard is HD 1080/23.98PsF.
