Hi All

Just bought a nice shiny new Dell 3008WFP which is great for editing and compositing except it's a wide colour gamut monitor and so everything looks over saturated in M100 (as well as the OS and other apps). With After Effects and Photoshop you can assign a TV colour space or sRGB to images/footage which gets round this issue but I can't see any way of doing this in Media 100 - anyone know a way of changing the colour space of the source and record monitor windows? Maybe this could be added as a feature in a future upgrade?

Thanks

This setting doesn't exist.

You would want to use an external monitor for accurate color grading anyhow.

Indeed, I am monitoring via an HDLink so that's not an issue. Wide gamut monitors are becoming the norm so it would be nice to have a solution for the desktop. I'd prefer Apple to provide an OS wide fix but I'm not holding my breath!

What I have done a few times is used the monitor settings in the system prefs, to match a NTSC or PAL monitor.

You can build a profile and call it NTSC or PAL, and just play with the settings until they match your reference monitor as close as possible.

Just don't forget to switch back if you work on WEB pages or print as well.

It is easy to do and works pretty well, just remember they are totally different color spaces. Macs and PC's are very different as well.

I've done something similar but it would be nice if the OS 'knew' you were using a wide gamut monitor and adjusted the graphics cards output accordingly to provide sRGB. Applications could also amend their colour spaces via preferences - this would be relatively easy to do!
