    Is there a way to show the skin tone line on the vectorscope in the color page?

    I find this feature quite useful in Resolve and wondered if MC has this option...

    Did not see the option in the documentation but I may have missed it.

    Thanks

    Is that a 'No' or a call to RT*M? Lol - I was just using this feature yesterday in Resolve and was reminded again of how useful it is as a tool to examine skin tone. Of course, it also requires a mechanism to isolate the skin tone contribution on the scopes which I'm not sure MC can do - possibly with the Symphony option and secondaries... I'll need to check.

    Add - I just checked with secondaries in Symphony and you can isolate skin tone and use a shape over an area, invert the selection and more or less isolate the hue on the vectorscope to just the selected skin (by desaturating everything else). Not nearly as easy to do as in Resolve. Still missing the skin tone line on the vectorscope, though.

    The Symphony/MV vectorscope doesn't have the 45degree skintone vector line. But then agasin nowadays not everyone has skin tone along that vector. I would be a nice touch but I know where that line should be so can work it out easily.

    You can overlay an image containing the line or lines you want to add (transparent everywhere else) on a higher video track.
