Workflow: TRV66 - ES15 - DVK200 - AIW9600XT
Before capturing in VirtualDub1911, I follow the procedure of cropping out black side and bottom, and then viewing the histogram to ensure the incoming video is within the recommended range of 16 to 235 to ensure.
Is there a comparable software tool I can use (in VirtualDub
or elsewhere) to check the color saturation levels from a bit if video before capturing? I don't trust my own eyes (or screen) in determining color saturation before capturing.
I recently increased the saturation with the Datavideo DVK-200 in order to mitigate the effects of the Panasonic ES-15. But I overdid it and had to desaturate in Hybrid. See attachment for example of how the over-saturation looked on a black screen. (The version with no extra saturation didn't have those colors.)
As a general rule, it is better to have raw video that is a bit oversaturated than undersaturated, assuming one will adjust the saturation later on?
