    This is something that has bugged me for a while. Why does my canvas playback in FCE project a slightly darker version of the actual brightness?

    It's quite deceptive. When I render the footage, it is lighter than what it was in the canvas. Any ideas on how to make the canvas project the true brightness?

    Many thanks.

    Sometimes you run into gamma-level issues in playback with certain codecs like DV. It's been a while, since I haven't done any DV in so long...and I'm not sure if FCE has the same user-controls/settings as FCP.

    Here's a discussion on some of the possible issues....
