HD color correction solutions and setup
on May 17, 2011 at 12:44:22 pm


I'm looking for an explanation how to build and what to but in order to be able to color correct high-quality products. I'm having some trouble understanding what I need.

I have been editing and color correcting with AE for a few years now. I have a rather decent PC for work, but always use production studios for color correction when high quality is needed.

1) What are good HD monitors for color grading? I'm looking for something in the 1500$-4000$ (If possible)

2) I have an nVidia 470GTX. I believe I need a Blackmagic card or Matrox card, but not sure exactly what. Could someone explain what product I should look into buying and can I connect it with my nVidia card?

My PC system specs:

Motherboard: Gigabyte X58A-UD5
CPU: Intel i7-980x 3.33GHz (6core)
RAM: 24gig
GPU: nVidia 470GTX

There's a COW forum for Apple Color, a dedicated color grading application in Final Cut Suite. They'd probably have some good threads you can read on the topic.
