I have incorporated a Sony Test Pattern: Colour Bars (PAL) into a project. The rendered project on my TV shows the bars correctly: white,yellow, turquoise, etc. But the video is warmer on the TV than in Vegas. The strange thing is the colour bars in Vegas show yellow as a darker shade of yellow, similar to the second bar in Yellow Porches - being one of the Test Patterns. When the project is rendered to DVD the yellow is rendered as bright yellow. I also noticed that the colour bars for NTSC have white as being a shade of grey as well as the darker shade of yellow.
I have carefully adjusted several project events to improve the project footage so would like to ensure that the project can be rendered at its optimum quality.
[Russ Froze]"Did you calibrate the monitor you edit on?"
No I have not taken any steps to calibrate my monitor or should I say LCD display. I have checked on http://www.lagom.nl though and it is set up correctly. Viewing some color bars on Youtube on two different displays there is no difference.
