This button allows you to set up the video analyzer settings. The configuration dialog is also available from the "Setup…" context menu command.

The video analyzer settings menu consists of two tabs: the "General" tab and the "Video Scopes" tab.

Custom

Here you can specify the list of video analyzer scopes for displaying when the "Custom" layout is selected.

Intensity

Here you can adjust the color intensity of the video scopes. Intensity control sets the brightness of the vectorscope, YC waveform and parade visualizations only and has no affect on the original video imaging.

As an example, the image below shows a parade scope for the same frame with two different intensity settings.
