Re: Questions on the preview output -half way there...

[Chris Cooke-Johnson] "Under the 'old' way, the cards output is a 1920x1080HD (720x486)SD "monitor" - just treat it as the third monitor and drop your comp over there and have3 fun getting the positioning right. "

This is correct. And your comp window buttons will dissapear as they are cropped out of the active video portion of the comp window. Getting the position is easy as it's a key-comb to auto-fill the window prefectly... [shift] + [command] + []

I learned this in the Kona SD manual. Good manual!

[Chris Cooke-Johnson] "Under the new way, it someone "knows" where your comp is (you didn't seem to imply that you selected the area as with M100. This comp is on your normaly computer monitor. It outputs whatever's in that comp (including guides, motion paths, etc) to the video out and plays RAM previews etc (kinda like the M100 app, just with 30fps refresh). "

Under the new way, the comp is mirrored to the Kona output. There are two comp windows... one *with* layer guides and one *without* which is the NTSC/PAL output. This is made possible by selecting it in the AE preferances for Video Preview.

Whatever comp is active, gets sent out to the Kona SDI output in real-time. You can have 50 comps open, but whichever one is in bold (active) will mirror to the NTSC/PAL monitor.

I also want to clarify something important:

If you view your comp at 50%, it will output at 100% on your NTSC/PAL monitor. If your quality resolution is half, it'll display this quality on the NTSC/PAL monitor. IOW, only the quality resolution will affect the NTSC/PAL output quality and NOT the zoom view setting. FWIW anyway.
