I'm trying to do an edit on a FCP X on an iMac and want to have a broadcast monitor. We're working in 4:4:4 1080p 23.98. For a lot less money we can get a AJA but it only copes with 4:2:2 whereas there's a Black Magic that does 4:4:4. I'm trying to find out whether that is actually going to make a difference to me? As far as I'm aware I won't see a difference between 4:2:2 and 4:4:4 but want to check if this is the case?
Also as I'm delivering a 4:4:4 digital master, I wanted to check if the Apple Pro Res 4:4:4:4 would be acceptable? As far as I know the extra 4 is a alpha channel, but will it be acceptable when they originally asked for a 4:4:4?
Any help would be great. Thanks
