Here’s my blog plagiarism post of the week. From Little Frog in High Def:
Ken Stone wrote a VERY in depth article on the Matrox MXO over at KenStone.net. He goes into how to set the device up when you pull it out of the box, and into all of the various settings in the MXO System preference.
You may have read one of my other posts about my initial difficulties with my MXO. Well fear not dear reader, because Ken’s walkthru is ridiculously awesome and thorough. It even has pictures of the install screen!
Skipping ahead to the end, Ken notes three essential ingredients to make your MXO work correctly:
1 – The sequence settings must match the clip settings.
2 – In the FCP View menu > Video Playback must match the sequence settings.
3 – In the FCP View menu > Audio Playback > MXO Audio
Where have you been all my life Ken Stone Matrox MXO Setup Guide? This should be required reading for anyone even remotely considering purchasing an MXO. And it should be on a dvd in the box. Or at least on a piece of glossy paper.
Ken Stone, you are a godsend. Thank you!
