Try selecting View -> Preferences -> Video -> Video Format
And selecting another format...if the camera supports 15-bit RGB (like my
STB TC/PCI card) or 16-bit RGB then it should work fine. Try all the
formats there while monitoring the CU window (not the preview window). If
one of them works, you're in business. If none of them works, you're
probably stuck to using the White Pine version.

The software converts different formats into 4-bit grayscale. If the
camera doesn't support one of the formats that Cornell CU recognizes, then
it won't work.
