I’m new to video synthesis, but from what I read, I assumed that I could display a video from a given source on a vector monitor with just the Visual Cortex. Anyhow I couldn’t display anything (exept for ramps) yet.
I patched the horizontal ramp to X and the vertical to Y. When I patched the (composite) video into the Gamma Input on the Visual Cortex and the Output Signal into Z on the Vector Monitor I only saw bizare patterns and not the video.
The control lamp for sync lock is red unfortunately. Is this the mother of all this evil or was I completely wrong with my assumption that I’d only need the VC to begin with?
Any ideas for troubleshooting?
I’m waiting for a digital to analog converter so I can use my bluray/dvd player as a source via component (Y,Pb,Pr) cable. Maybe then the sync will work.
[Side question: Why is it that the VC sometimes is able to sync lock from an external source and sometimes not?]
I live in Europe and switched the VC to PAL-mode.
The video source is a super nintendo (composite).
The vector monitor is an oscilloscope.
Thank you and have a nice day y’all.
After cross checking the Video Output in my TV I see the Game in a weird unsorted fashion, similar to the “bizare patterns” on my oscilloscope. So I think it’s the sync, but I’m courious about your opinions.
