“This will allow your NLE to output the video through firewire to the external monitor without your computer’s video card getting “in the way” and will give you the most accurate representation of your video.”
Just to put in my two cents, doing it this way taxes your CPU. So you won’t have as many real time effects. You may have to spend time rendering, depending on what you do to your video. Ideally you should have something like a Kona card. But if you’re not doing anything too wild, video out via firewire should be fine. As I said, I was just putting in my two cents….
And connecting your camcorder or deck to the TV with S-Video will be better than composite.
