Setting up a Black magic Shuttle grading suite
on Feb 8, 2015 at 11:39:37 am

Hello!
I have just finished a final cut of my new movie and would to color grade it. I heard something about buying a specialised video card for precise video playback (in terms of color reproduction).

I found Blackmagic Shuttle as a relatively cheap (200$) option but I am not sure if it will do the trick? Also, one of my colleagues who knows about grading more than myself told me that I should be connecting Blackmagic shuttle to the minitor via S-Video out, not DVI or HDMI as they are not able to reproduce the colours precisely.
Do you guys have any suggestions in whether which connection type should I choose for the best color precision?
My movie was shot on a Mark III, H.264 in Full HD. I will rent a JVC Broadcast monitor for my Color grading work.

Hi Leo,
I'm assuming you're going to grade using Resolve lite. If not, download it, it's free. Although, it has a steep learning curve. I use HD-SDI connection from my Ultrastudio express to the monitor. Most guys I know use the SDI connector. S-video is pretty poor quality.
It's also good to know what computer you'd be using, what format is your output etc.
