Odd VBXE question....

Recommended Posts

I am hooking up an Atari 130XE to a DLP video projector. Because of the large size of the projection screen, I need the highest quality video possible, which is the RGB output of the VBXE. 

 

However, I want to occasionally play games that use artifacting. Instead of using the noisy composite out, can I use the RGB through an RGB to composite converter to get artifacting? I know I could just use the composite out, but I would suspect RGB --> Composite will give a better result.

I'd think you'd be better off with the legacy composite out. The artifacts introduced by converting RGB to composite will probably be quite arbitrary and not very "authentic".

You could try rgb to svideo (still high quality). Then bleed some luma into the chroma line to get some artifacting. Of course your phase (gives artifact colours) may not be what you're expecting.

I think the VBXE RGB via converter box would work but not necessarily generate the artifcating you want (might be out of phase).

 

Also note there's probably zero VBXE stuff out there that intentionally does artifacting (no need plus as stated RGB won't give it to you).

Also note using a composite converter with VBXE might generate unwanted artifacting, in fact with 320 and 640 modes as the basis of many VBXE releases it's probably inevitable.
