External Video Monitor

When you edit your video, it’s ideal to watch it on a monitor similar to the one you will
use for the final screening. An external video monitor can display color, frame rate, and
interlaced scanning more accurately than your computer display.

If you are working on an NTSC or PAL project, you should watch it on an external video
monitor that shows the video interlaced. Your ability to color correct is limited by the
accuracy of your monitor. For more information about external video monitoring, see
Chapter 14, “
