Part 1. What is Blackmagic Video Assist used for

There are several reasons why using a monitor for recording is beneficial. First, a larger screen size makes it easier to view your footage and adjust your framing and composition. Second, a higher-resolution monitor will produce sharper images, which is especially important if you are shooting in 4K or HDR. Third, a monitor with accurate colors will help you to color grade your footage more accurately.

In addition to these benefits, a monitor can also be used for playback and recording of ProRes and DNxHD codecs. This is important if you are shooting in high-quality formats, as it will allow you to view and edit your footage without having to worry about dropped frames or stuttering.

Finally, a monitor can be integrated with editing software such as DaVinci Resolve. This allows you to view your footage on the monitor while you are editing, which can be very helpful for making precise adjustments.
