[Shane Ross] "And are you telling me you used FCP 7 and your computer display to judge color for on air spots? No wonder they didn't look the same. Totally different color space."

That's the point of using Color Sync -- to translate correctly between color spaces, which FCP7 could not do.

After Effects, for example, does color management brilliantly.

Any color management system will be limited by the display device. A well-calibrated monitor which contains the entire gamut of the intended color space (Rec. 709 for Jim, I'd assume) will show accurate color. This may not be practical with soft calibration on an 8-bit panel, but a hardware calibrator on a deep color monitor should work nicely. Of course, it wouldn't help with judging field issues.

That said, I still use my FSI.
