Can you do better than the Mini for color matching? For those in that higher upper league, some find the Mini is good enough and some do not. Depends on your needs and your market. It has the attraction of a much lower price, but it has some limitations. The biggest one for me was that the BMI does not have the built-in calibration that the Mini does. Maybe that comparison is still on the website.
Finally, there was a comment about using the Mini for a second LCD screen. The Mini only runs a tv. If you simply want a second computer monitor, use the dual-head capability that many video cards have. If you're looking for a more creative slant, you'll appreciate this app's nifty effects, including FilmGrain, Threshold, Syslog Listener, and Splash. Syslog Listener also can Syslog Listener screenshots, create basic Syslog Listener shows, and prepare your shots for the printing process.
You can send Syslog Listener via e-mail, but that's the only sharing option at your disposal. Still, since Syslog Listener won't cost you a cent, we can recommend it to all but professional users who need the maximum Syslog Listener of power. With this Syslog Listener. Use the Syslog Listener and the route finder to quickly find the way to the Loyalty Partner of your choice, without getting lost.
Especially for YOU! With immediate effect, the highly requested Syslog Listener to SD feature is available! Let your friends enjoy the numerous Syslog Listener benefits by using Tell a Friend recommendation. A slug is the amount of mass that produces Thus the units of mass are actually pounds force times seconds squared per foot. In metric units, a kilogram is actually a unit of mass, and produces 9. All of this is of some importance because it is frequently possible to figure out what is happening in physics because the units have to match.
Another note for purists: There is a proper style for capitalization of units. In general the abbreviations for units deriving from proper names such as newton, joule, or British are capitalized, even when used in the middle of a compound unit, like kW, but not the units themselves.
There are some other rules which I forget frequently. I hope, in general, to get them right, though I reserve the right to make mistakes. I will nonetheless welcome comments correcting me. Power is often confused with energy, but power is the rate at which energy is transmitted.
One important transformation of energy in classical thermodynamics is pressure and volume to and from heat, since generally heating a gas causes it to expand, or increase in pressure, or both. If we hold the pressure constant, the volume increases as we heat a gas. For a finite area, pressure times area is force, and if the volume increases, we have the area moving, which is thus force times a distance, or work.
This work is the transformed energy we added as heat. The reverse also works. If we apply enough pressure to a gas to cause it to decrease in volume, it gets hotter, which anyone who has touched a bicycle pump after it has been used to blow up a tire has noted. Because this exchange is so common, it is worth noting the equivalent units for work and heat energy here - one Btu is foot pounds. A pound foot is not the same as a foot pound.
By convention, a pound foot is a unit of torque or twisting — a force of one pound applied at the end of a one foot wrench. The issue of work and heat energy brings up another set of terminology. The internal energy of a substance generally a gas or liquid is the heat content. Enthalpy is the total thermodynamic energy in a substance relative to a standard condition and is the quantity we are generally interested in for heat engines and similar systems.
For this reason, enthalpy is generally the characteristic listed in tables of thermodynamic properties, and if you need internal energy, you generally have to compute it yourself from enthalpy, specific volume and pressure. This is not, of course, the total energy of all types — hydrogen has a certain energy in terms of its temperature, pressure and specific volume but much more chemical energy if it was burned, and very, very much more if it undergoes a thermonuclear reaction.
The Second Law of Thermodynamics The Second Law is not really a law any more, in the sense that a physical law is something which we believe to be true based on never having seen it violated in nature, but cannot prove from other laws.
Statistical thermodynamics can prove it, but classical thermodynamics was not able to describe the Second Law in terms of physical phenomena. There are numerous statements of the second law, the most important being the Clausius statement: The Kelvin-Planck statement is equivalent, but from the viewpoint of work: No device can operate in a cycle and raise a weight or do other work by exchange of heat with only one reservoir.
This last machine is a perpetual motion machine of the second kind, and has been occasionally proposed, usually as part of a scam. We can prove the equivalence of the two statements and the Second law by postulating two systems: First, consider a system that included a Clausius violation heat pump, a cold reservoir and a conventional heat engine, which we know works connected to an external hot reservoir.

Red Lodge, Montana Posts: Other folks Steve Kalle, for example have experienced problems with lags and glitches that led them to discard the Mini in favor of other solutions that were better suited to their work. Most of them seem to have been related to: The one issue I've run into with the Mini is with trying to run live playback from the multi-cam editing window. No problem with the play button on the main timeline.
But, if I want to run the equivalent of a live mix by clicking the play button on the multi-cam window, all four multi-cam monitors squinch-up to about half their normal width and that is also what is displayed via the MXO2 Mini. It is all fine if I just pull the cursor or hit the play button on the main timeline window.
My work-around is to assemble my video tracks on the synch timeline nest that into an AVCHD timeline for the multi-cam edit. What Gary means when he says you can monitor your Cineform timeline via the Mini is that you can put Cineform files on a Matrox timeline.
You only get output through the Mini when you use one of the Matrox sequence presets. You can't get output through the mini when you are using a Cineform sequence preset in PPro, but there is no need for that. Once upon a time, you had to use a Cineform preset to use Cineform files in Ppro, but that has not been true for a while.
Interestingly, you can have a non-Matrox timeline but still get Matrox playback of what is in the source monitor. I sometimes find it useful to have the source monitor displayed via the Mini to the tv on my left, the main editing window with a multi-cam monitor overlay on the screeen in front of me and have the program monitor displayed full screen on the computer screen to my right.
If you have those kinds of specialized needs, the Mini is not for you. I Alt-tab into First Light, adjust one of the files, Alt-Tab back to Ppro and I can instantly check the adjustment against the other video tracks via the Mini display to the tv. Another great thing about this is that First Light metadata adjustments have virtually none of the slow rendering or computing overhead that you have when you use many of CS5's adjustment effects.
Not all of them are MPE enabled. Can you do better than the Mini for color matching? For those in that higher upper league, some find the Mini is good enough and some do not. Depends on your needs and your market. It has the attraction of a much lower price, but it has some limitations.
