AV Monitor Correction Again

by Adam C. Engst

AV Monitor Correction Again -- Daniel V. Blystone <dblyston@weird.biol.trinity.edu> writes: "In regards to the comment by Michael Shannon last week, you do not need a TV to see what you are recording QuickTime movies. You do need software that will let you see what you are recording, such as Adobe Premiere, which lets you view the input while you record. Many of the Apple utilities do not let you preview while recording. There are several advantages to having a TV monitor hanging around. You can run your captured movies on the TV using NTSC standard, and you can watch your favorite cartoon while you work."

Michael Shannon <datamike@aol.com> clarifies: "Perhaps the way I worded the statement was misleading. Recording QuickTime movies from an external video source is no problem. It's recording the video OUTPUT (either composite or S-VHS) that disables the Mac display."
