"final cut" preview full screen

If you do not have a preview monitor on which to preview your work, you can use one of your computer monitors to see a full screen preview.

1 Simply go to View > Video Playback > Digital Cinema Desktop Preview-Full Screen.

2 Go to View > External Video > All Frames so that FCP knows to send the information found in your project frame by frame to the external monitor.

May I point out that you may already posses the hardware to preview to an external monitor. Do you have an inexpensive Mini-DV camera with firewire and and S-Video ports? I'm talking about the type of Mini-DV camera that you would commonly take on a vacation. Do you have a television set with an S-Video in? If you do, then you're in luck!

1 Run the firewire cable from your computer to the Mini-DV Camera.

2 Run an S-Video Cable from the Mini-DV camera to the television set. Make sure your camera is in VTR mode and not in Camera mode.

3 Go to View > External Video > All Frames

4 Go to View > Video Playback > Apple Firewire NTSC (720x480).

Your audio source will have to be connected to the Mini-DV Camera for you to be able to monitor the audio. Now, you have a relatively inexpensive VTR!
