Why is it that a movie created in Final Cut Pro, authored in iDVD, is much brighter when burned to disc played on a domestic DVD player and viewed on a LCD TV than the same movie viewed on the same TV but used as a monitor direct from the Final Cut project?
Is the extra brightness just the way it is when ‘Burning” to DVD or am I doing something wrong?
LCDs will always be brighter, you need to preview your work on a monitor/tv. Merely burning the project will not adjust any level of luminance or chromiance.
