Output/input (8)

The TV test: looking at your work as your viewers will see it.

TV uses an entirely different color space than computer monitors, so what you see is not always what you get when you're making digital video. On top of that, the TV screen is larger and magnifies minor problems.

Really, checking the output on a TV is something that I should have been doing all along. But I'm not an eXtreme Programmer sort when I'm doing video work. I'm "in for a penny, in for a pound", so I save the big test til the end. But this evening I dumped the whole project out to tape and played it back.

Did Hello Tokyo pass the test? Not entirely, but the problems are solvable. I need to retinker the clips I had filtered to compensate for uneven lighting--I think I compensated too much on a few of them. And I will adjust audio levels in one section, which may mean recording the voiceovers again.
