    I assume (I should never assume) that you want to view your video at a pixel ratio of 1:1 (squar pixels) ??? So again, I'm assuming that you want to be viewing 1920x1080 or 1280x720 footage ....

    Edius supports both these frame sizes (which have pixel easpect ratio's of 1:1) so you have to create a project with those settings. In your current project go to ...

    "Settings"
    "Project Settings"
    and then click "new preset"

    Now you can change the project settings to match your 1:1 footage.

    Non standard, or custom video sizes are not possible in Edius. You would have to do that in After effects or another compositing program.

    Hope this helps...

      It's either that, or he wants to now how to do a fullscreen preview...which is not possible directly within EDIUS.

      Video overlay mirroring to a second monitor is the only method I know of.

        Since there is no percentage shown for the overlay's zoom setting, there is no way to actually display the footage natively...but you can probably get close to it, maybe 99% or 101%.

        But nonetheless, what KH is saying seems to be true...There is a request for a preview feature on a secondary monitor for a future version of Edius. Go vote for it :)

          To be fair, when you have a range of purpose-built hardware output products that give you that much-wanted 1:1 preview, accurately, there is little sense in prioritising the implementation of an (inaccurate) fullscreen overlay window.

          That said, I'm sure it will make an appearance, one day.

            How about using the NX component output and send the video signal to a broadcast monitor? Isn't that 1:1 now? Assuming the broadcast has exactly that number of pixels as the original source ... 1920 x 1080 - being the maximum size permitted.

              I'm assuming that the OP does not have an NX (or similar)

                I really don't get what people do with that so called 1:1 preview on a pc monitor?
                I like my preview's crisp in true color space on a broadcast grade monitor.

                  It saves money, by sacrificing accuracy?

                    Pity the poor men or women out there ... not many people have the luxury of having a broadcast monitor. I think a fair percentage of the people on this forum are not video professionals - looking at the questions they ask.

                    Of course, there is a huge difference in colour between a broadcast monitor and a PC monitor - the colour space is totally different. That is exactly the reason why I keep telling my clients to look at the broadcast monitor for how the video will look like - you will be surprised to learn that some people actually prefer the colour of the PC monitor !!!

                      Why don't you get a NX to power that 24 inch for you. I think you will enjoy it. :)

                      A lot of Edius users who do HD/hdv have lcd's ....but most go out via the NX HD component to get a Broadcast quality preview and editing without delay.

                        "Broadcast quality" is a term thrown around quite a bit, but it's really void of meaning these days. It's just a derogatory term used in an excuse from someone who doesn't want to use a piece of footage - "I can't air that, that's not broadcast quality."

                        Look at the TV shows from the 80's. Is that "broadcast quality" today? Or look at TV news. We get cell phone video and MySpace video shown... is that "broadcast quality?"

                        As for the original 1:1 preview question, there are a few reasons to preview video:
                        1. Color correction
                        2. Positioning
                        3. Motion artifacting
                        4. Timing
                        For #1 to be done properly, you need a broadcast-calibrated monitor and the actual output of the card. PC-display preview won't cut it.
                        One may argue that the end-viewer's TV settings will malign the image anyway, but the point is to have a good reference point, so the image looks reasonable no matter what evil preset the viewer is using.

                        For #2, PC display preview is an approximation at best, because the PC will show the entire image, regardless of overscan. Granted, overscan varies from display to display. Relative positioning, of course, is fine on a PC display - if you're lining one object up against another, etc.

                        For #3, the PC display preview is not useful at all. It doesn't represent what a standard interlaced display would show (because it's not interlaced), nor does it display what a progressive (LCD/plasma) display would show because it's not geared for TV (different scaling, etc).

                        For #4, the PC display is fine for this, as long as the preview is full framerate and the display refresh is the same as the end-viewer - otherwise you will see judder.

                          Numbers 2 and 3 were the reasons that I only used my Quadro card as an output for a week until I went with the NX. It just drove me batty. Especially, after using a rex card since 1996.

                            FCP has this feature....it's pretty sweet. I just use FCP to playback my AE comps, and I let my customers view them on my second 21" Wide LCD at full screen. I can scrub frame by frame and let them pick a frame that they want to see again.

                            I have a 14" Sony PVM broadcast monitor connected, but sometimes I need a bigger view...and since I don't have a 46" Bravia yet, I use this feature often. Obviously the downside is inaccurate color, but of course I am not using this feature for proper color accuracy. I have the Sony for that.

                              Get yourself a Panasonic 17" LCD - or 24" ... it won't cost you $3OK or even $10K .... Don't bother about Sony these days - they are just overpriced for the functionality you can get in Panasonic or JVC.

                                Your EIZO is a great monitor, though not for video...it is great for graphic design.
