10.8

Release: VideoTools, v2.5

Release Type: Production
Version: 2.5
Release Notes

Changes since VideoTools 2.4

  • Updated to Blackmagic SDK version 10.6.1.
  • Added the new 4K video modes available in the latest Blackmagic SDK (2160p50, 2160p5994, and 2160p60).
  • Fixed a potential crash when selecting a video mode unavailable on the selected Blackmagic device.

Credits

  • The Blackmagic Capture patch was commissioned by Stuart White of Control Freak Systems.
  • Support for selecting and simultaneously capturing from multiple Blackmagic devices was sponsored by Igloo Vision.

Known Issues

  • ProRes 4444 format does not support transparency (so videos are fully opaque)
  • H.264 videos stutter when played backwards
  • All VideoTools patches provide only video input, not audio input
  • Firewire cameras only support certain combinations of Color Coding, Resolution, and Framerate. Watch the Error output and Console log when troubleshooting.
  • Due to issues with the underlying frameworks, video device info cannot be queried once a video device is in use. Therefore Video Device Info is only updated once: when the composition is first started.

One of my friends kept on saying that QC is Turing complete, and I joked about rebuilding the ENIAC in QC.

This resulted in writing a big switch selector for the keyboard. Plugin and javascript free, stock patches only, made on Mavericks, no dependencies.

Some wires in there, and two interlaced feedback loops. Managing the delete key was the difficult part.

For the record:
