Just checking there isn't some auto legal clipping set into AE's Mercury output, as I am monitoring full range test signals sent to BMD scopes in a MacPro 1.1 Yosemite and it is clipping to legal 0-100% range.
Now I know RGB is technically always 0-100% so maybe I am confused here. Surely an 8 bit 255 Red would show as 1024 in scopes and not 940?
If I switch the Ultrastudio to RGB 444 it goes full range but the blacks go green so I guess this is wrong.
Am I missing something here, as I want to legalise my animations and can't do that if the out put is clipped.
nb. If I set Resolve to Data levels I get full range output with the same footage
BTW this is the same in PREMIERE which means you can have an illegal signal that is not being displayed from on your broadcast monitor, which is a big deal. Any clues? you need to be able to work and monitor full range!
