See your video in a new light.

Scopebox is a complete set of professional software video scopes for the Mac. It provides a simple way for you to run professional scopes with live sources, or within hosts like After Effects, Premiere Pro, SpeedGrade, Final Cut Pro X, and more.


Now you can have the same set of industry standard QC tools in every aspect of your production – from acquisition to motion graphics, editing and finishing. Streamline your monitoring and make sure all your entire production is seeing the same thing without the need for costly extra hardware or the hassle of exporting footage.

Professional Scopes

Scopebox includes all of the broadcast standard scopes such as waveform, vectorscope, parades and histograms – plus new ways of visualizing your signal like the HML balance and Channel Plot. It works seamlessly with After Effects, Premiere Pro, SpeedGrade, and Final Cut Pro X to assist with everything from matching product coloring between shots to making sure your lower thirds are legal.

You can mix and match scopes, save layouts, and recall them later. ScopeBox doesn't limit the frame size you can monitor, handling compositions up to 4K and beyond. Be confident that you're seeing every pixel and every frame of your compositions.

Visit the In Depth Information page for a full rundown of the available scopes.

Pixel Accurate QC

Inside Scopebox, all of the scopes feature instantaneous and peak envelopes to help you keep an eye on excursions in your video whether you are watching or not.  These envelopes track down to the pixel, showing your min and max values for every shot, helping you to prepare your video to pass the dreaded network QC faster than ever.


ScopeLink – Free!


ScopeLink allows you to feed video directly from many popular applications directly to ScopeBox. Whether you're working in Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro X, or After Effects, you can use the same professional scopes without having to export your footage or send it to another app. Best of all, ScopeLink is included at no extra charge with ScopeBox.

ScopeLink isn't an “add-on” or a special license key. It's included with every copy of ScopeBox, as long as you're running Mac OS X 10.8 (“Mountain Lion”) or later.



Complete Scope List


Video levels are the key to a well exposed shot. Using a waveform allows you to be confident you're getting the most contrast and definition from the shot. It also makes setting up green screen shots a breeze. ScopeBox is an exact replica of a real waveform. You see an accurate representation of the luminance of every pixel in your video.



We all want bright vibrant colors, but unfortunately there can be too much of a good thing. A Vectorscope shows you exactly how saturated your colors are, so you'll be sure to have the brightest colors possible, without exceeding broadcast limits. Additionally, you can use the vectorscope to ensure perfect white and black balance, or to ensure the calibration of your video equipment.


RGB Parade

RGB Parade lets you see how each channel of your video is represented in red, green, and blue. Use the RGB Parade in conjunction with the waveform, to track down overexposed parts of your shot, and then tweak them just the right amount.


RGB Histogram

You've probably heard people go on and on about the contrast of a scene. Sometimes it can be hard to see what they're talking about. With the histogram, it's easy! You can see where your colors are concentrated within a scene - are all your reds really dark, while your greens are very bright? Do you have a nice even range of saturation, or is everything concentrated in a big lump? The histogram reveals all!


YCbCr Parade

YCbCr Parade lets you see how each component of your YCbCr (YUV) video is represented.



Luma Histogram

The Luma Histogram gives you a quick idea of the distribution of luma levels within your signal, so you quickly identify overexposed signals.


Channel Plot

Channel Plot lets you plot two components of your signal against each other. This lets you quickly identify excursions and other color conversion issues.


HML Balance

The innovative HML Balance palette segments your signal into high, mid, and low exposure vectorscopes. Using the HML Balance palette, you can easily see a color cast in a highlight or a shadow.



The Preview palette is much more than just a simple monitor. You can overlay other images, add masking, or tweak the contrast and saturation. You can even open multiple preview palettes simultaneously - use one for checking critical focus, while another gives you a complete view of your image.
