Questions on the preview output
on Aug 14, 2002 at 2:26:21 am

Hi all,

just wondering if someone can toake the time to explain how the preview output from the Kona works.

Does it function in a similar fashion to M100's video preview (define an area of the screen to be passed through to the video outputs)? Or is it more software-based (i.e. liked to AE's preview). M100's drawback for preview is it's 1 sec refresh rate (although of course anything rendered to the M100 codec is realtime), but it is useful in the sense that it will put annything on the screen (motion paths, safe areas, etc) out to the screen - amasingly useful for colour correction work.

Is it like Matrox (preview goes directly to output, but there's no refreshed 'on screen' output as per M100)?

We're looking at the Kona HD - in M100's case, you'd want to have a monitor capable of more than 1920x1080 in order to define the area... is this the case? Probably putting in an order for computers in the next week or so ;-)

Hope this makes some sense to someone...

Take care,
