    Waveform live update

    My aplogies if this has been covered.  I keep seeing that we are supposed to have live updates in the scopes, but I am not seeing this.  I have checked the box for live updates in the settings but the scopes don't update until the video stops.  Thoughts?

    Re: Waveform live update

    I just tried it on the system listed in my specs, and in color correction mode the scopes updated in realtime. Just to double-check, are you in color correction mode when you're looking at the scopes? (I realized this is a pretty basic question, but I don't want to overlook anything.)

    Re: Waveform live update

    No problem, best to start with the basics! Yes, I'm in color correction mode. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding the feature also, what I'm expecting is that as the video plays the scopes play along too  Or is it just that they update while making changes in the color correction?

    That's what happens on my system.

    Re: Waveform live update

    On my system I get live updates while making adjustments and live update if I scrub. But when I hit play the WFM freezes and only updates when I stop.

    Re: Waveform live update

    your color-correction-mode-three-way-displays must be set up only to show waveforms(any), not the "Next" clip, nor the "Previous" clip. Only waveforms in the side monitors and the current clip in the middle.  MC plays Waveforms in realtime only in thes display setup. This was covered in documentation somewhere....

    Re: Waveform live update

    DJFio[DB] is correct. Both left and right displays must be set to show waveforms (or histogram, quad-display, etc.) for real-time to work. They can also be set to Entire Sequence or to Empty for real-time display to work. Note that you don't have to use the center display. As long as one of the displays is set to Current (or Entire Sequence), you can put the monitors in any of the others (so you could set it up like histogram/waveform/current) it it will still work.

    Re: Waveform live update

    Ah ha!  That was the problem, I had the left screen of the three set to previous, when I put the vectorscope over there and a WFM on the right side it works...! Hooray and thanks for your input!
