I recently got an Intensity Pro 4k to replace my Intensity Pro, which served me well for more than 6 years. It has mixed reviews on the internet, but mostly because of one of two reasons:
- Noise, which was indeed terrible but is fixed completely by updating the firmware.
- Software compatibility, which I can’t speak for. I only use one piece of software and I make that one compatible if it isn’t.
I have to say that the device has worked pretty flawlessly for me. Nice to finally get full RGB input and 1080p60 capture.
Of course, to actually make use of those features I had to release a new version of PtBi. Since it’s a pretty major upgrade I decided to call it version 6 now. More specifically, the release is 6.1877. In addition to supporting the new pixel formats PtBi should now also produce somewhat more useful messages on errors.
It’s still not quite user-friendly though. You have to select the pixel format and video mode with command line parameters, e.g. PtBi.exe -disable-audio -pf=ARGB -mode=1080p5994. The supported modes are ARGB, BGRA and YUV (which is the default and only option in previous versions). I don’t support 10bit modes since I don’t need it — if anyone really does it shouldn’t be too hard to add.
I also pushed the current source to GitHub, what was there was completely outdated. It’s still terrible though, which is about what you’d expect from a project developed for a few days here and there over 6 years, and built on code even older than that. However, it does it’s job, and it’s the only thing which does that particular job, and I still use it all the time, so perhaps it’s useful to someone.
