Correct Video Preview Setting with Blackmagic
by William Edwards on Feb 6, 2014 at 4:17:13 pm
I'm doing a video preview to the monitor via a Blackmagic Extreme 3D card with SDI. It give me a couple different options to output, and I'm not sure which one to choose that would accurately reproduce my playback. There's Blackmagic HD 23.976, but then there's three options: 8bit, 10bit, and RGB. I'm going with 8 bit, right now, which is probably my source video. But my monitor can handle 10bit right? Maybe that's better, or does it really matter? Would RGB be for non-broadcast projects?
(My monitor is the Flanders Scientific CM170, and I'm running Win7)
