Hi, I'm curious as to how most editors and post production people view their clips while editing or uploading. I have seen many set ups where the video editor has the timeline, canvas, and browser on the computer screen, and the viewer on a different screen.

Can someone please tell me how they are or would do this!!!

- Thanks alot! this is a very open question, and im sorry i dont have more specific specs, but I do have a tv tuner and im running on vista with vegas. but also edit in fcp

Since you're talking about a vegas rig (I run FCP myself) I can only explain what is likely the more expensive option for external video monitoring, but also the most universal. Many editors purchase video output expansion cards from vendors like Blackmagic Design or AJA video. These interface seamlessly with your NLE and output as either an HD/SD-SDI signal over BNC or HDMI in real time, where the video output processing is done on the card. The simplest implementation of this is to buy a Blackmagic Design Intensity Pro, an aforementioned output card with HDMI and component in/out. You can hook this up to any HDTV for monitoring, which of course allows you to also display SD video.
