    Blackmagic biggest joke?

      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
