It's a bit of a semantics game. The YUY2 video mode is not "compressed," but it won't result in a bit-exact copy of RGB input. The luminance is full resolution in that mode, but the chrominance is sampled at a lower resolution. This is technically decimation rather than compression, but some information is indeed lost. That said, if you are ...

For future videos, you better have a defined reference in all videos. For example a clapperboard or a standardized grey card. Then you can match all videos during colour grading both regarding the white balance and exposure. Usually editors let you set the black and white point or midtone with a colour picking tool that you use on the clapperboard or ...

Containers don't support encryption of metadata, and without encryption everyone may change what he wants (even damaging by his action the whole multimedia file). There is a possibility to make a checksum of your file (as SHA-256), but it will not protect to change it, it only helps detect if the file is in its original state (not changed).

Do you have a manual for the VCR? Does it show the pin mappings for the SCART connector? I did a quick search, I can't find a manual online. Where did you get your SCART cable? Did it come with the VCR? I'd agree with the link you posted - SCART more commonly connects to a composite signal, or sometimes RGB. All my SCART cables are wired for either to those,...

If you can use Zoom, it has a pretty good recording feature which can record separate audio files for each participant in addition to the video in gallery view. Obviously, already synced. As far as quality, Zoom does have a video optimization option that improves the resolution at least.

I think I can see what you are asking, and Ken seems to have missed a big part of the question. So assuming you are saying that the camera you want to watch is being broadcast as a TV channel that is connected to via an aerial (or equiv). Then as you have said, you will need something to capture that with. That's going to depend a little on the hardware ...

I ended up posting basically the same question over on the dpreview forum, and got a number of replies. In case someone else stumbles across this post in hopes of getting an answer, the contributors seemed to recommend the following, as of Feb/Mar 2020: Panasonic Lumix GH 4 or 5 (around $600 and $1300, respectively, body only) Blackmagic pocket cinema 4k ...

the easy way ? Yeah. Use a post-it note.

No, there is physically only one 'native resolution' for any hardware sensor. It is the number of physically distinct light sensitive areas on the sensor chip and is set in silicone at the time of manufacture. When OBS or any other software gives you a different sized image it is either re-sampling using the values available from the native resolution or ...
