What is the Color Space of my Macbook Pro?

A bit confused as to what to set my Monitor Out color space to so that the color management tool of Scratch will properly transform the various clips in different color spaces properly in my display.

Using a Macbook Pro laptop (late 2011) with the antiglare (non-gloss) display (pre-retina)
Using the default system preference display settings of "Color LCD"

here are the official specs:

with those specs and display settings, is my laptop running in sRGB? Rec709? What should I be setting my Scratch monitor color space to?

Hi Rob;

Sorry for the late reply.
Both sRGB and Rec709 have the same gamut.
The issue with the MBP is that "Display" settings only allows 1.8 or 2.2 gamma, while Rec709 is actually 2.4 to be precise.
This is something you could compensate by creating your own LUT in Scratch and using it as a display LUT.

Keep in mind that the Player/Settings/Monitor colorspace will only apply on your laptop display and won't have any effect on the exported sequences.

Hope this helps.
