Toast And Blackmagic Design Ultrastudio Express



3 answers to this question

Recommended Posts

Sorry for the lack of information. What I am trying to do is use the BlackMagic UltraStudio Express to capture HDMI Video with hdmi audio in a h.264 or MP$ codec. This way the actual capture file is not so huge. So I was looking at Toast Pro to use the Blackmagic UltraStudio Express device as the capture device and Toast is the encoding software for H.264 or MP4 codec. Please let me know if you need more information. Thanks

Toast won't be a capture device for that product. It can convert the already-captured video to other formats and to Blu-ray and DVD-video discs. It appears to me that Blackmagic uses it "Media Express" application for the actual capturing. It's possible that the UltraStudio Express can capture using codecs not present in the QuickTime library. If so, Toast won't be able to convert those. But Toast can handle any QuickTime-playable video along with some MPEG 2 formats not playable by QuickTime.


You likely know that Blackmagic has a superb reputation and supports the Mac OS. So you should be in good shape. If you ever want a tool for converting various video formats to h.264 I suggest you check out ElGato's Turbo264.
