Monitoring Video and Audio While Logging
Once you have connected your VTR or camcorder to your computer, you can view your
video in the Preview area of the Log and Capture window, or you can connect your
video device to an external video monitor to view footage while logging.
Note: The size of the video preview area in the Log and Capture window is based on
the current height of the Canvas window.
To change the size of the video preview area in the Log and Capture window:
Close the Log and Capture window.
Change the size of the Canvas to the size you want to make the video preview area.
Choose File > Log and Capture (or press Command-8).
The Log and Capture window opens based on the current size of the Canvas.
To monitor audio directly from your video or audio device while you log, do one of
Connect headphones to the headphone output of your camcorder or VTR.
Connect audio outputs from your camcorder or VTR to external speakers.
To monitor incoming audio directly from your system audio output:
Choose File > Log and Capture (or press Command-8), then click the Clip Settings tab.
In the Audio area, select the Preview option.
This option routes the incoming signal to the audio output selected in the Sound pane
of System Preferences. Each audio channel you enable for capture is routed to a
corresponding output on your audio interface, while disabled channels are not heard. If
your audio interface has less audio outputs than the number of channels you are
capturing, the audio is downmixed to stereo. This does not affect your captured media
files; only the preview of audio during logging and capturing is affected.
