Ultrascope Update
on May 2, 2012 at 2:20:31 pm

Howdy. Is there a plan to update the software side of the Ultrascope anytime soon? It would be sooooooo nice to be able to select which scopes are on and to make them super big. I do not need the image to be up but I would love to have two waveforms and vectorscopes so one could be normal and the second scope magnified. I am young but my eyes are already lying to me.

thanks,

James

I just finished a new Resolve system today, and I wished for the same thing. It would be great to go FULL SCREEN on any scope, or even the monitor, at the selection of a menu - or choose "two up".
I love the Ultrascope, and install it all the time - but some simple new menus would be great.

Have you checked out scopebox? It's got that and tons more, plus works with any old decklink card and has broad hardware support.

hardware requirements spec have not been updated on the BMD site for quite a while.
Is there a standard "cheapest box" that people are using for the ultrascope?

Juan, would scope box run on a new 17" macbook pro / bmd intensity extreme? (of course it would be analog component input)

It would run spectacularly. It's only $99 and you can get a free trial.

that's sweet. already have everything else and I don't want to build a whole workstation around an ultrascope in case they come out with a pocket ver w/tbolt (seems like a no brainer product right?)

Might just want to get the ultrastudio instead so you have hdsdi.

If I may jump in, are you inferring that Ultrascope software works with other Blackmagic cards like decklink?

No. Ultrascope software only works with ultrascope and a couple of other newly announced devices. The scopebox software on the other hand, works with regular old decklink cards and various other interfaces.

I really want them two up and full screen as you described.

Lets say you need parade and its is only 1/6 of the screen and you have zoom option
but it makes working slower, go in and zoom and pan around, zoom out again.
Full screen would help a lot.

Also maybe someday 2 monitor version, 1 for fullscreen and second for 2 up and you could cycle them
as needed. Mostly we do not need audio levels or sdi window for example and could drop them or bring them up as needed?

Just mu 2 wild cents.

Anyone find a fast, modern graphics card for UltraScope lately? Blackmagic says cards can be purchased for $100, but the models they list seem to be old.
The card I'm using now has almost a 1 second delay with UltraScope.

Thanks,
Rob

I am currently using the windows screen magnifier.
It only works when ultrascope is in windowed (2-up) mode, so ctrl+f switches between the fullscreen 6-scopes view and "magnified" 2-up.

Still, this solution is ridiculous.
The build in zoom shows how very detailed ultrascope measures, yet it can't be used. Zooming into a parade won't show me all three channels next to each other, while that's exactly what one would need a parade for: exact neutrals by comparing the channels.

Considering the price for this product, I believe 1-scope-fullscreen to be a must-have feature and hope it get's added in a future update.

...and while we're at it: the vectorscope could get an I-Line (aka Fleshline). While it's not the be-all and end-all of skincolor, it's a great guideline.
