If us as a Linux community can get this card well integrated with Ubuntu or Ubuntu Studio, we will have made the final huge step to considering Ubuntu as an un-compromising alternative to proprietary Apple and Windows based products. True professional video editing/finishing will be the last leg of the "Linux as a production solution" rise to popularity.
    Autodesk Smoke has been running on Linux for years and is the pinnacle of video editing, allthough very specific on it's host OS Linux flavor and hardware specs. Having this Intensity Pro card fully integrated into professional editing available for any Linux flavor would give any professional absolutely no reason to look anywhere else.

    I became excited when I learned Linux was supported as noted on the Blackmagic website for the Intensity Pro. I was a bit less excited when I've been reading mixed reviews on the card's actual integration with available editing applications.
    If anyone has any first hand experience with this card, I would love to know how it all has went. I'm trying to collect several data points while planning my system build.
    If you don't mind using the included "Media Express" package from Black Magic then it works, though it won't directly integrate with anything else in Linux. I was pretty disappointed to find out it didn't support GStreamer framework out of the box. The plugin to use the card with GStreamer from that Media Magic company will cost more than half what the card itself costs.

    There's a free gstreamer plugin now sitting in the official gstreamer repository under gst-plugins-bad. I hope this helps. KDEnlive also has support for the card.

    The MLT Framework supports capturing from Decklink and Inensity Pro devices.

    so capturing with BM Intensity Pro in ubuntu is as easy as:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install melt
    Code:
    melt decklink: -consumer avformat:myfile.mp4
    you can find a list of available options for the avformat consumer here: http://www.mltframework.org/bin/view...nsumerAvformat

    if people are interested in a GUI to capture from the Intensity Pro you can use kdenlive as it's built on melt. I suggest sunab's PPA, he has 2 different ones. Either the kdenlive-release (which is very stable) or his kdenlive-svn (which is experimental from git)

    Took me a good bit more searching after seeing this post. But the gstreamer plugin is called decklink and works with the intensity pro.

    My pipeline to view video from SD pal composite source:


    Code:
    gst-launch-0.10 -v decklinksrc mode=2 connection=4 ! ffmpegcolorspace ! xvimagesink sync=false
    To check out the other modes:

    gst-inspect-0.10 decklinksrc
