Which color bars

Which color bar signal do you use to set up your monitor. A direct feed from the camera or from your NLE system. I just noticed for the first time that both signals yeild different results although both are set up to IRE 7.5. Anyone have any ideas? Oh, and the NLE feed to the monitor is via s-VHS cable and feed from cam is via RCA connector.

Regards,

Mark

I'd feed it from the system that will normally be used with it . . . the NLE since that's how you will be judging the output when you are editing.

If you have a waveform and vectorscope display in your NLE, look at both sets of bars and see what the measured difference really is.

Thanks Mike. I will use the signal from the NLE. Unfortunately I don't have access to vectorscope but do have the waveform.

color bars

I usually record color bars from my camera on to the head of each tape for several reasons, and capture some of the color bars into the NLE when starting a project. I then use those color bars to calibrate my monitors. I've found that sometimes the color bars from NLE are a littl different than the ones from my camera. but using the captured version through the NLE allows me to properly set up and calibrate the NLE chain. that being said. some cameras use only full field colorbars and aren't as usefull as a set of sempte bars that have the pluge bars in the bottom right corner. these really help in setting up the brightness and contrast of a monitor and what i see miss set most often
