Yes, but the small size of the monitor and the huge amount of information displayed on an UHD screen make it almost useless because of the tiny size.
Using an UHD monitor is really only suitable for full screen playback of 4K material if the minimum screen size is at least 27" but preferably 32" or bigger.
Thank you for your prompt response.
I'd just like to understand better:
- Will the PP menus look too small?
- Will the PP outer frame not be able to be extended to the full screen?
- Will an HD exported video not be able to be extended to the full screen, or if it can, it will not be as sharp?
Thanks for more clarifications.
Everything works the same as it does on a 40" screen. Only a laptop has a 15" or 17" screen.
For my taste that is way too small for effective editing. Even HD screen need to be 24" as a bare minimum, IMO.
I don't like squinting all the time. I have a 27" UHD monitor and will not use it for normal work, only full screen playback.
For comparison, looking at a 17" laptop screen in UHD gives you the same size on the screen when you use a 8.5" HD screen.
Can you imagine editing comfortably on a HD screen even smaller than an iPad? I can't.
