Release: Matrox 3.0.1 for FCP X 10.0.4 and Compressor

Matrox has provided a release of Matrox MXO2/Mojito MAX 3.0.1 for use with Apple FCP X 10.0.4 and Compressor software on Mac OS.

This release provides professional monitoring capabilities while editing with Apple Final Cut Pro X and encoding video in Apple Compressor using the Matrox MAX H.264 codec.

Important: This software is provided as is. We recommend that you back up your system before installing new software and we do not recommend that you update your MXO2/Mojito MAX software if you are in the middle of a project. Please report all of your findings (positive or negative) to the corresponding section of the MXO2 user forum. Your feedback is important.

The drivers available here will only work and install in conjunction with Apple FCP X 10.0.4 software. No other version of Apple FCP X will work with these drivers. If you do not have Apple FCP X 10.0.4, then you do not need to download and install these drivers.

We recommend all FCP X users upgrade to FCP X 10.0.4 before installing the Matrox Utilities 3.0.1 driver version.

Limitations and important information:

  •  This release does not support a Matrox CompressHD card installed on the same system as your MXO2 product.
  •  In the Playback pane of FCP X, set Playback Quality to High Quality. However, if you experience dropped frames in your video output, select Better Performance.
  • Switching (ALT+TABBING) between applications that use the MXO2 hardware is not supported with this release. Therefore, if you’re working in Final Cut Pro X, you must close it before opening Compressor.
  • The predefined High-Quality Matrox MAX H.264 settings, and hardware scaling are not supported in this release. When creating a custom setting, ensure that theHardware scaling option is disabled before encoding your video.

Installation instructions:

To install this release of Matrox MXO2/Mojito MAX 3.0.1, you must first uninstall any previous release of Matrox MXO2/Mojito MAX software by choosing Applications > Matrox MXO2 Utilities, and double-click the software uninstaller file.

Important: To avoid losing your custom Matrox MAX H.264 settings in Compressor when updating your MXO2/Mojito MAX software, you must uninstall the MXO2/Mojito MAX software that is installed on your system, restart your computer, and then install the new MXO2/Mojito MAX software version before opening Compressor. If you open Compressor before installing the new MXO2/Mojito MAX software, that is, with no MXO2/Mojito MAX software installed on your computer, your custom Matrox MAX H.264 settings will be deleted by Compressor.
