Blackmagic UltraScope uninstall?

PostSun Jan 21, 2018 3:46 pm

Going through my apps I found Blackmagic UltraScope which crashes if I try to launch it. It's dated 2014, 9MB in size. Do I need this for my BMPCC, Ultra Studio Express, or Resolve? It seems I don't own any of the products associated with downloading a new version of this software. Should I uninstall? If so, other than deleting are there other components to be found and trashed?

I've found that Ultrascope causes problems if another Blackmagic application is open - ie: it won't work as it needs control of the input (in my case via Thunderbolt 2 from Teranex and Ultrastudio). Even though it could be an extremely useful utility for me unfortunately it creates too many problems so I've cleared it off those systems on which it was installed. The same for you. If you don't need it then ditch it.
Blackmagic Teranex 2D, Ultrastudio Express, Intensity Shuttle (Thunderbolt), Two H.264 Pro Recorders (Mac OSX) & lots of old VTRs used for digital archiving of legacy video formats for major libraries, broadcasters, universities and public archives.
