    Independent Waveform/Vectorscope Tool

    This is something that has been needed for quite some time. From the tools pulldown, an independent, resizable waveform/vectorscope window, available in any mode. And it MUST update in real time as adjustments are being made.

    That's for sure. Although, I can't wait any longer. I'm going to order the Blackmagic Ultrascope.

    Re: Independent Waveform/Vectorscope Tool

    Everywhere I've ever worked, there's always been a Tektronix Waveform Monitor, Vectorscope or a combo. I'll always prefer a high quality stand-alone scope for critical hardware troubleshooting as well as work done within the color correction mode. Timing adjustments that are critical down to the nanosecond require a magnified, detailed display that only a stand-alone can provide. But the virtual scopes in Avid have improved noticeably from what they were 10 years ago. For those who can't afford to buy real scopes, these are now a credible alternative. But they need to be more accessible and I repeat, they must continuously update in real time.

    Re: Independent Waveform/Vectorscope Tool

    How many times have similar requests been made, esp. for realtime scopes?

    This highlights how ineffective the product features request section is.

    Carl, who is very helpful and nice, has for some reason strongly fought against this idea. But I am sick and tired of seeing feature requests just being passed over.

    Here is a link to the suggestion of reworking this forum's layout: http://community.avid.com/forums/t/61764.aspx

    Re: Independent Waveform/Vectorscope Tool

    I'd like the scopes too, it's a must for broadcast type of work, and yes Larry, real hardware scopes are better for serious work, but still a quick and reliable tool to check the signal is a must for Avid as well: most of the times the scopes are in a separate room along with decks and whatever, editors must have scopes inside the NLE.

    Re: Independent Waveform/Vectorscope Tool

    A long time ago the Avid Input Waveform monitor used to give you an updating luminance and vectorscope display of the video output. It would be nice to have realtime scopes back again.

    Re: Independent Waveform/Vectorscope Tool

    Yes Definitely a feature we could use. And as stated in this thread other NLEs already offer that feature.

    And we need it in a freely resizeable window! And as many instances of this tool as my CPU can handle (e.g. one set up as vector scope, one as RGB parade)!

    YES! And don't forget those "in-the-field" editors, where any kilogramm more equipment means more to schlepp around.
