    Blackmagic biggest joke?

    Uli Grimm

      Hi

       

      Finally Blackmagic updated their Desktop Video Software to make it "customizable" in AE 2014.

      Well the setup dialogue in AE video preferences gives three options:

       

       

      No output: which means "off"

       

      center: which cuts off the picture if you are working with material wider than HD (like Scope, or everything that needs to be letterboxed)

       

      scale to fit: which distorts the picture awfully because it fits everything into a wrong aspect ratio

       

       

      What we would need is just what is in AE:

       

      Like "fit to width" which would maintain the right aspect ratio and scale a scope into HD.

       

      This should be possible I think. Otherwise nesting into a HD sequence is the only way again.

      (DaVinci does it, easydcp does it, all with the same BM card)

       

      Regards,

      Uli
