If you're not seeing your signal there, you've likely got hardware or driver issues.

ScopeBox can open a wide array of QuickTime, MXF, M2T and MTS files for monitoring. Loading files in ScopeBox also enables support for our scrubbable timeline interface.
Keep in mind that decoding files can demand substantial compute resources. While modern Macs have hardware video deco
