[Jim Giberti] "No offense Shane but can I assume that you have no experience with FCP X except on the forum?"

Oh, none taken! No, I do have experience with it. I downloaded the demo, and tried for 3 days to cut a show promo. But gave up due to the sheer stupidity of how it worked. I didn't understand how it did things. Nothing made sense. The skimmer annoyed me, single viewer annoyed me, not saving my IN and OUT points, not being able to SEE my source footage properly. And most off, the lack of tracks. Sorry, I'm a track based editor and will be for as long as NLEs support it. It makes sense. Apple changed something that didn't need changing.

ANYWAY...that's besides the point. I did use it. I hated it. And I never ever in all my 15+ years of editing judged the quality of my footage from what I saw in the Viewer/Canvas/Preview/Program monitors. Not one NLE I use shows an accurate image. It isn't designed to. It is designed to allow me to see what I am cutting. And resolution lowers so that I get smoother playback. If I wanted to see how things really looked, I needed the external monitor.

But I do see the total need to have what you see in the NLE match your QT exports. Because QT exports aren't broadcast quality...they are web and computer based, so completely different. I get that. I just don't get using the image you see on the computer display (and the FCX interface) as a guide to what your image will look on TV. Because computer displays and TVs have different color spaces.

[Jim Giberti] "As I said in my original post, what I see in my studio, in my viewer, is what I see on broadcast monitors,"

How do you know? Because FCX doesn't allow for external broadcast monitoring. So how do you know what you see in FCX is what you see on your broadcast monitor? If it does match...that's cool! Neat trick. I guess I need to know how you are comparing the shots in order for my head to wrap around it.
