Date Added:01 February, 2013



Test Gear 2.5 provides motion graphics artists and video editors with a variety of test instruments to make objective measurements of their visual and audio work, all from within Adobe After Effects CS3, CS4, or CS5.

While the final measurement of any project is what it looks and sounds like, getting there has previously relied strictly on subjective viewing. Test Gear's objective measurement tools make it easyto check video levels and color balance, choose colors, view channel values in detail, and view digital audio, all within After Effects and without the need to apply effects just to make a measurement.

Test Gear provides standard waveform monitor and vectorscope displays so that your work can be analyzed in the traditional manner without expensive outboard equipment.

The waveform monitor can be formatted to show an entire frame or two fields. Options also include luma, luma plus chroma, parade, RGB, YRGB, and overlay style displays. The display can be calibrated in IRE units or millivolts, as you prefer.

In After Effects projects using 32-bit mode, Test Gear will display values above 1.0 in the waveform monitor, making it easy to see highlights which exist and may be brought into range using an appropriate plug-in, such as Color Finesse.

The vectorscope can be calibrated for 75% or 100% bars, and can be zoomed (using your mouse scrollwheel) for more precise examination of the important center portion of the display.
