Known Issues with Studio for Mac Beta

We have released a public beta of Studio 5.0 for macOS. This beta has some known issues and limitations which are detailed below.

  • Studio access is only available via a Livestream or Vimeo subscription; the Studio dongle is not supported on Mac.

  • The Studio Surface is not supported at this time.

  • Tally light systems are not supported at this time. 

  • Currently, the media bins can only import and transcode AVI/MJPEG files; other file types (.mp4, .wmv, etc.) will not load.

  • Webcam sources may become intermittently unavailable after prolonged use. 

  • There are occasional connectivity problems with Studio Web Control. 

  • The network dashboard shows incorrect network information when streaming (i.e. it shows that one network device is in use when actually, another network device is being used).

  • The Event from Livestream remote camera option currently does not work.

  • The AutoFormat detection feature (in Input Settings > Convert) does not work for Blackmagic Devices.

    The media bins import don't work at all... I've tried converting my files to AVI/MJPEG and they still won't show up.

    I'm trying to run Studio 5 on Mac Pro. I've tried to convert my media files to AVI and they still don't load/transcode. Any suggestions?
