Final Cut Pro 6 - Using Digital Cinema Desktop Preview

Using Digital Cinema Desktop Preview

The Digital Cinema Desktop Preview feature allows you to preview your video using
any available computer display connected to an AGP graphics card. (Displays
connected to a PCI graphics card cannot be used by Digital Cinema Desktop Preview.)
If you have two computer displays, one can be used to view the Final Cut Pro interface
and the Finder while the other can be used as a dedicated video monitor. For
Final Cut Pro portable systems and other single-display systems, you can switch
between the user interface and the Digital Cinema Desktop Preview display.


If you are doing critical online editing or color correction, you should use an

external CRT broadcast monitor that supports the format you are editing (NTSC, PAL,
HD, and so on), especially when your final output is interlaced video.
