Video looks great on MacBookPro.. horrible when projected
on Jul 18, 2010 at 1:45:50 am

I am projecting a video that I created in FinalCut on the MBP onto a screen using a Dell 1610X projector Check it out here

During my tests, I noticed that the video looks great on the MBP but really dark when projected.

I don't want to re-color the video to make it work on the projector... any thoughts, hints, insight you can provide?

Thanks in advance.

Make sure your "display output" is set to the projector "native" resolution of 1024 x 768. You use Apple "monitor calibration" on your display properties. Hope this helps.

Make sure that your projector is calibrated properly.

Exactly what was needed....

I have figured out how to treat my projector as an additional display for the MBP and calibrated it using the System Preferences tools...

Now.. it looks much better...

Cheers...
