Like many of you (i’m assuming) I am using my plain old acer monitor to edit and make corrections regarding color, etc.
Unless you’ve calibrated your monitor using a tool like a Spyder, there’s no way to do accurate colour correction as there’s a big difference between a computer monitor and a TV set, even LCDs and plasmas. If you can’t afford a proper CRT (one that can be calibrated), try a small TV set and use the tutorials found at http://users.wowway.com/~wvg/tutorial-menu.htm to help you set it up. If you know how to use them, the scopes built into Vegas are a great tool. Using the Vegas Pro color scopes is an excellent tutorial written by Sony that should help.
