Lesson 8. Hardware and Interfaces > Offboard Processors

Offboard Processors

FCP’s internal filters and tools are capable of a lot, but it’s useful to have external processors to fix, route, and condition signals before you capture them. They add capability and flexibility when working outside of FCP, too.

Proc Amps

Proc amps, short for processing amplifiers, are used to correct brightness and color problems in video images. They typically have four controls: DC Level or Pedestal to adjust the black level of the image; Gain or Contrast to adjust the overall strength of the video signal; Color or Saturation to tweak color strength; and Hue or Phase to correct problems in hue. (Make the faces less green! No, make the faces less purple!)
