ultrascope software via thunderbolt
on Jan 17, 2013 at 2:57:09 am

Hi Guys,

our blackmagic cinema camera just arrived and I managed to test the ultrascope software on a 13 inch macbook pro. The problem is that I cannot display all 6 displays for monitoring because of the screen resolution.

Is there any other way aside from getting a 5 inch macbook pro to fully display all of them?

thanks a lot.

iMac will also do it.

Thanks Juan.

Yeah it will do but bringing an imac on set is quite cumbersome. I guess there's no choice but to go 15 inch then. Thanks a lot.

Not just 15, but retina 15. Need 1920x1080+ for 6 up display,

Hi,

I tried UltraScope on my MacBook Pro Retina 13". Whilst UltraScope will run, the performance is not great. However I see someone has mentioned recently on another forum that a program like Quickres might allow you to run all six scopes at once.

The MacBook Pro Retina only allows up to the equivalent of 1680x1050, whereas the six-up view needs at least 1920x1080. Quickres allows you to use resolutions all the way up to the retina display's native resolution. I can't verify this myself right now, and I expect performance will be even worse, but maybe if you want to try it on this system, it seems like the only way to go.
