Default Videoscope numbers

Hi,

Just wondering how to make sense of the RGB numbers in the videoscope window?

In photoshop and most RGB design software, the values are at a range from 0-255, but it edius it seems to be in the high 800s as you go towards white.

Ideally I'd love them to display in the 0-255 range but not sure if it's possible.

Any ideas?

Hmmm - tried the switch (both versions of 601) but didn't make any difference to the scope numbers.

Do I have to exit and then restart edius to see the changes?

I'm actually not even sure what these 800x number represent having never come across them before. Familiar with RGB, CMYK and YUV (a little)

Are the definitely something to do with the colour space?

I have to admit I never look at the numbers but after a quick check here I get 0-255 in an 8 bit project and lot higher in a 10 bit project, which would make sense as a 10 bit project has a larger range of colours.

A workaround is to use Pixie from : http://www.nattyware.com/?m31

This little module can be opend anytime and gives you the colors value situated under the arrow of the mouse.

Very practical for any opened program (photo, video, powerpoint,...) It gives the exact color generate by the graphic card.

So, you drive the arrow in the windows player of Edius and you have the colors of the video.

I use it everyday...

8-bit numeric values (in decimal) range from 0 to 255 (in binary 00000000 to 11111111)
10-bit numeric values range from 0 to 1023

Yep - 10 bit colour is what it was. Switched to 8 bit and back in the 0-255 range.

Thanks for the help all :)
