ScopeBox preview palette with live video signal

Monitoring

ScopeBox's video preview shows you every pixel of your image, exactly as you're shooting it. The monitor calibration ensures that the colors you see accurately represent your video as well.


Overlays

To help you frame your shot, ScopeBox includes a number of overlay features. Center marks, rule of thirds, letterbox masks, title safe and graphics safe are all available. In addition, you can overlay any QuickTime movie or image - great for framing greenscreen shots or shooting around lower 3rds and other graphics package elements. The focus assist option adds peaking on edges to make focusing even easier. With the option to overlay Zebras, you can see exactly what in your image is overexposed or saturated.

LUTs

Most post-production workflows involve substantial color correction and image adjustment before a project is finished. For example, many productions shoot in a "log" mode which maximizes dynamic range detail - this video must be color corrected or it'll look washed out and low-contrast. The LUT support in ScopeBox allows you to quickly apply a transformation to your video signal, so you can get a sense of how your color corrected footage will look. Many cameras even include sample LUTs for doing log-to-linear conversion. ScopeBox supports 3D and 1D LUTs in the CUBE and Lustre (3DL) formats.
