The story with Avermedia has always been that it's been on our radar. This is why I said that "we'll be taking a look" at direct support. I didn't say we would implement anything, just take a look.
Now we have taken a look, and we won't be doing direct support for Avermedia. In the past 6 months alone, we've had requests to support capture cards for Avermedia, Magewell, Datapath, AJA and Active Silicon, plus a whole bunch of Chinese OEM boxes. There's not enough time in the day to make and maintain all of these, so we have to make tough decisions. We simply can't support everything and we have to draw the line somewhere. Avermedia just falls on the wrong side of that line.
I'm very sorry for any confusion or bitterness this may have caused, especially to Pfelberg.
There is a bit of hope. We will also be looking at our implementation of Direct-X capture again. There is a chance that when we do that, capture of Avermedia *via Direct X* will work better. It will never be as fast and easy as Blackmagic, but it might stop the problem with the incorrect resolutions. Again, these are not promises, nor is it set in stone when we do this. Just letting you know how things stand and how things could possibly develop.
