What are you using for external monitoring?

Hi Juan,

Thanks for replying, i use a Panasonic 25" broadcast monitor via bm deck link. Color callibration in that sense is not the issue, I need to be able to match ref images and have those matched images stay matched on export. If I show a client that the images are matched on a broadcast then cannot give him or her a matched QuickTime I'm kind of screwed. Obviously there are always shifts going to h264 and my clients expect that, but these shifts aren't acceptable. Any advice greatly appreciated!

Keith

Okay after doing more tests it is just a quicktime player issue. The problem I have now is asking clients to view footage in something else mplayerX seems most accurate. Problem is if projects are ending up on the web and safari uses QT engine will the colours not be the wrong ones online too?

Update: The problem is solved (about 90%) by taking the footage in and out of symphony. QT7 is still closer than X but at least they are in the same ball park. God quicktime is a shitty piece of software architecture... Its a times like these where I seriously consider moving to a PC. then I use win8!

I use 10 bit RGB as output format on my mov files and skip prorez specially for web stuff.

Afterwards compression is done by adobe product and it seems consistent.
