- In this movie, I wanna talk about how to read a Waveform.…Knowing exactly what type of information…the Waveform displays is essential…for making technical and creative decisions,…especially when it comes to contrast,…exposure, and color balance.…So here our project, I have this timeline…opened up 02_02_ReadingWaveform.…Now I've gone into my enhanced viewer,…and I've done that again by using…the keyboard shortcut option or alt + f.…And on this timeline, you'll notice that I have three clips.…
Just make sure that you're on the first clip…in this timeline, which is a black and white gradient ramp.…You can quickly navigate to other clips in a timeline…by using the up and down arrows on your keyboard.…But for now, we're gonna start out on clip number one,…and I'll go back into my enhanced viewer.…Now you might be wondering,…"Rob, why are we looking at a gradient?"…Well, using test images is a great way…to understand what a particular scope is really doing.…And I wanna use this gradient to show you…how the Waveform really works.…
