  • Intensity Pro-How to pillar box SD to HD upconversion?

    Hi all

    Have looked through all the settings and can’t find one for making a pillar box of 4×3 content. I notice in the manual that it exists, but BM often writes one manual for several versions of their product.

    Does anyone know if this is a feature to work on the Pro version? Or does it just work on Shuttle, etc? Am trying to get cleanest look when upconverting.

    Same question. I am trying to capture some VHS footage and was hoping that I could up convert on capture.

    I just bought the Intensity Shuttle for USB 3.0

    Capturing SD footage to 1080i59.94, with the SD to HD setting on Pillarbox, does NOT Pillarbox; it zooms into the SD image and crops the top and bottom of the original 4:3 footage.

    This is seemingly a software glitch in the settings of the Desktop Video Utility. Is there a fix? Blackmagic refuses to address it in the forums.

    How are we supposed to capture/upconvert SD footage on the fly if this doesn’t work? I’ve seen this issue around the web and no one is getting answers.
