Hi video friends!
I am trying to capture the output of a Visual Cortex using an UltraStudio HD Mini.
I’ve verified that the composite output from the VC is producing what I expect by monitoring it on a Liquid TV and also a projector.
I have an RCA component snake, but the UltraStudio has BNC inputs. Ok - I have a few RCA to BNC adapters of the correct gender. I hook the VC to the UltraStudio using the snake with adapters - and the input on the UltraStudio doesn’t report a signal format. Adapters maybe suck? So I toned them out, tip to ring, and they seem fine from the RCA end to the BNC end.
I have only one (cry) BNC to RCA cable, so I connect the VC to the UltraStudio using one of the composite outputs of the VC to the NTSC/Y input on the UltraStudio. The capture locks on and reports NTSC as expected, and records in color. (And records in black and white if using the luminance(?) output of the composite section.)
So I guess my question(s) are,
are Blackmagic widgets super sensitive to cable quality in this application?
is there anything obvious I’m missing in trying to capture component output with the tools I’ve mentioned above?
cheers and thanks!
Here’s the composite output:
And the component luminance captured as composite:
