needed rather soon: monitoring FCP on SD TV via HD100?

help.

i am starting the color correcting on a little short that needs to be finished by thursday. I shot it all on my HD100 (HDV 720 30p) and ingested into FCP 5.1.2 from the camera via firewire.

i'd like to use my old SD tv to help with the color correction (yes, i know it will not be accurate--i just want to see approximately how the colors look on a CRT).

i don't have any kind of i/o card like a kona or blackmagic, but i thought i could perhaps output from my mac G5 via firewire, into the HD100, and go from the HD100 to the SD TV using a single RCA in the composite jacks (thats the only video input this older tv has).

it is not working out. i DO get a live camera picture (and playback from tape picture) on the TV when the camera and tv are connected with the RCA composite. i have tried the camera in both VTR and camera mode.

does anyone know if i can monitor the FC timeline on my TV using just the equipment i have?

many thanks if anyone can help.

Hi Maat

What I find works with this is with your 720 sequence open go into easy set up and select DV NTSC (PAL over here!). Obviously make sure the firewire switch is on DV on the camera.

Then on the 'View' menu go down to 'external video' and select single frame, or all frames, though you will only be able to view a single frame at a time and not the clip playing. But it works for me well enough for colour correction.

Hope that helps.
