Color correction and external monitor
on Oct 25, 2009 at 12:00:02 pm

Hello again, I want to correct colors with FC and external broadcast monitor. It is better to use an analog monitor or a Digital monitor. Apple sells a Mini DVI to Video adaptor with composite (RCA) and SVideo outputs, would this be enought to work with an analog monitor? or I need a canopus card to use conponent video, is this an important issue for the image in the monitor?


Thanks very much for your help

Analog or digital are fine so long as you have a properly calibrated monitor and feeding it a good, professional signal.

Composite is the worst possible choice for monitoring professional video. S-Video is the bare minimum so long as you have a properly calibrated external monitor.

If you're working in HD, then Component is the bare minimum you will require.
