I edited a project that in a last minute edit before publishing required a puppeteer's hair be cut from a scene that was shot in a white studio.
On a new Apple monitor on my Eizo broadcast monitor, on my i phone the matte is invisible.
The 15 minute video was published on Facebook.
When I later watched it on chromecast on my quite new High def TV the Matte was suddenly apparent. More than Apparent. Hideously apparent...
Yet a previous opacity matte that I had applied to the same scene cutting out other areas of renegade hair with a backing of a white matte was invisible...?
Can I get some advice as to how i am to check for this in the edit. Is there a white limiter or something I should be using if TV is the destination. Should I expect the same thing with Blacks and all colors?
I am thinking some of the monitors are using YUV color space and the others using RGB? Some may be 10 bit others may be 8 bit. If you are doing work for broadcast or cable casting 3rd party hardware from Blackmagic Design, AJA or Matrox mwould be wise. I was going to do a video showing the difference between the color space on a computer monitor VS a broadcast monitor but I doubt it would look correct after being up loaded to YouTube. Having said that you might find the link below helpful.
