I am new to Videography and editing. I have a custom built computer with Adobe Preimiere Pro 1.5. I also bought a used seperate TV color monitor off ebay. I have a video switcher hooked up to both the PC and the color monitor. So now my dumb question:
I was told that you should view your clips on a tv monitor to make sure it looks good for color and sizing, framing etc. before you render and export. How can I view a clip on the seperate TV monitor that I have edited? Can I do it from within Premiere Pro? Or do I have to run it through my video camera into the color monitor? I am fairly techy, but this one is driving me nuts. I am sure there is a simple way to do this.
I never did this but I am building a pc with a card for dual monitors. I imagine there is a card with some other plug in for a tv – be that analogue or digital.
then there is a setting on 1.5 "view in external monitor that you woud use.
— I just upgraded to 2.0 and imported a sequence from 1.5 (which was fine in 1.5) but not the size is off. about 50% what is should be.
The source monitor is ok but the sequence monitor is too small by about 50% – I can add the zoom filter but that results in a poor quality.
am I missing something?
Thanks to both of you!
in 1.5, the picture was fine (filled the window). in 2.0 its like 50%. (boardered with black)
what conerns me (besides I cant see what Im doing) is that im trying to set up a DVD from the 2.0 timeline.
the thumbnails are also 50% which leads me to beleive that it will also render at 50% and only play back at half the TV size.
ok I hope this photo link works.
if it does, you should be able to see the black around the footage and the prroperties,
format = AVI
size = 720 x 480
as I say, if I right click the timeline and click "scale to frame size" it fits but it becomes less clear (like zooming).
Im concerned that after rendering the dvd will play like this — even the chapter point thumbnails are 50% like that.
-> – I was showing you the properties window incase there was something out of whack with the properties.
-> – I removed all the filters (had some colour fixes on there) and got to "Motion" at which point I could see the "X" with the corners to grab – so I can resize it that way.
😕 will this effect the quality of the dvd?
😕 Also, since most of the sequence is undersized, is there anyway to rezize it all at once or do I have to go clip by clip? I tried using the "select everything to the right" tool but then the effects window said "no clips selected"
😕 3) when resizing, I added the "safe margins" — outside the outermost margin.. does that mean none of that will show on the TV? cause if thats the case, the rezizing would only be about 80-90% of the sequence window. Should I resize to that or to the window size?
😕 while we’re rappin here, do you (or have you) use the SteadyCam filter — this is old footage shot on a spring / wind up 8mm camera – really jumpy. do you recomend those kind of filters?
Im having a PC built right now that will have dual monitor capability. Im hoping to be able to preview on a TV in future. Take the guess work out.
