BETA 13 - Incorrect Default zoom
When adding a camera source, Wirecast has always done what I would describe as "random zoom". Sometimes, a source will come in and fill the canvas on a shot. Other times, it will be too small.... or zoomed in so much that you have to zoom out to see the entire input.
While testing today, I confirmed that this issue is still present in Beta 13. My normal camera is 1080p, and I have to zoom out. This is a different camera for my test today, which is only 640x480. But it shows the same effect. The camera needs to be zoomed correctly to fit when first adding a shot, so that it can be used, without any additional steps.
The other regular culprit for me is Black Magic Intensity Shuttle. But its the other way... 1080p input onto 720p canvass, is zoomed such that you can't see it.
While we are at it - even adding a colour object on the canvass, does not fill the canvass. 99% of the time, that's a good place to start. A square in the middle of the canvass is never what we need. The default size of that makes no sense... And even worse, there are no size controls in the new UI to change it either.
USB or Thunderbolt version. They made both.
Thunderbolt. Although, it should not matter. The Blackmagic drivers operate and sit on top of the physical hardware. Wirecast would not know if its USB, thunderbolt, or carrier pigeon. Except there may be lost frames if using a carrier pigeon :)

Not all Blackmagic capture hardware is the same. Some allow us to use the DeckLink API and some use system-wide UVC/USB drivers. Also, I think technically *all* drivers top on top of the physical hardware but I think I know what you meant to say.
Exactly. Craig was asking about webcam devices and how they are connected initially... I made the point that even non web-cam devices with dedicated drivers are impacted by this problem. USB, Non USB, it doesn't matter.
