higher quality video in Color than FCP
on May 15, 2010 at 12:53:09 am

I just finished running a sequence thru Color for adjustments and noticed how much better the video quality appeared than while in FCP. before I thought my quality was due to the monitor or the video itself (it's shot with a small Sanyo Xacti) but it looks positively gorgeous in the Color monitor. why is that? how can I get it to always look like that ??

suggestions?

thanks!

Neither interface should be used to judge your actual picture qualty, because neither is correct. Both the Color Viewer and FCP Canvas are there just to allow you to see your footage. For accurate viewing you need a capture card and Broadcast monitor or really good HDTV.

ok, I'll accept that - but why does it look so much better in Color? what's that about? I'd really like it to look as good in FCP - can I adjust my settings for that somehow?

Don't know. Different code. Notice how Color has a completely different UI than FCP? It is a different beast.

Nope.
