Is TV output when editing editing in Premiere Pro possible?

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Yvan J. Gagnon, Jan 12, 2004.

  1. I have an nvidia MX400 display adapter in my WinXP Pro machine, and
    was wondering if it is at all possible to route Premiere Pro's program
    monitor display to the composite video output on my display adapter?
    If this is in fact is possible, then how do I do this? I am already
    aware of how to get TV output by connecting my MiniDV camera to the
    machine via firewire when editing. I would prefer, however, to not
    have to hook up my MiniDV camera every time I want to edit.

    Thanks in advance,

    You will not be able to without another card. Best solution would be
    to buy a Canopus ADVC100. About $220 (academic price).

    My university students and I have been through this a number of times.
    You'll need to buy the Canopus. Best money you'll ever spend.

    Where I used to work they used matrox G450 cards, and subsequently
    G550 video cards with avid Xpress DV. that had an adaptor which went
    to a monitor output and S-video and composite sockets. If you set the
    matrox card to DVD playback (or something sim ilar) then a full screen
    playback of whatever was on the formost video overlay (which basically
    was whatever was playing on the avid timeline or a clip) on the
    moniotr. It wasn't true video, it was whatever was strip out of the
    DirectX layer or whatever, so the gamma was a bt off, it tended to
    skip a little, and it was always de-interlaced, but it was big a
    fairly sharp, better than just squinting at the main monitor, and
    cheaper than a ADVC 100. I'd still use the camera to convert for
    crucial colour correction and title/grphics design however.
