component video levels revert to SMPTE
by Michael Rosing on Jun 27, 2008 at 5:47:16 pm
Using 12.1 standard definition, analog component input with a Kona Lhe, and I just discovered that when I go to the preferences-video input, the component levels revert to 'SMPTE', even though I had 'beta' selected before. Something to watch out for if you are using betacam component...

This is a known bug. It is fixed in 12.5, but if anything is written to the prefs file the levels will revert to SMPTE. Even though it will always show SMPTE it will be Beta levels until those prefs get re-written. So, when you are ready to digitize, switch to Beta and batch and you'll be fine.
