Using HDRScope/4KScope with Adobe ScopeDirect Transmitter

4k 100Drastic's 2110Scope, HDRScope, and 4KScope products provide a ScopeDirect Transmitter for Adobe that allows users to monitor the main output directly from the Adobe software without SDI/HDMI or IP Video being used to connect them.  You can take advantage of this feature to analyze the signal through the wide range of signal analysis tools. This article describes how to set up the ScopeDirect Transmitter output though our scopes.

ScopeDirect Adobe Transmitter's plugin output is supported in 4KScope, HDRScope, and 2110Scope.  You can use our Waveform/Vectorscope, Histogram, Chromaticity, a selection of audio scopes, as well as a per-pixel data view and onboard error log to review and confirm levels as you work. Here are the steps to set up this feature.

Select Edit | Preferences | Playback from the menu bar.


Adobe Edit Preferences

In the Preferences window confirm the Drastic Scope Transmitter is selected.


Adobe Preferences

Import the test clip.

Create a sequence to play from the timeline.

Run 4KScope, HDRScope, or 2110Scope. Open the Settings window. Set the Board Type to Adobe ScopeDirect and check the Auto Follow Input box.


Adobe BoardType

Play the clip or scrub through the clip on the timeline.


Adobe Playing

With Auto Follow Input checked, HDRScope (for example) will change its settings to match the clip and you will see the test clip settings in the top title bar.
