We're curious to learn more about how you use PPro's Reference Monitor.

All detailed workflow descriptions appreciated!

A long while ago I did use it back when we were still doing color work inside Premiere. But shortly after I stopped doing this because the image shown there wasn't exactly the same as the program monitor. This resulted in a cascade of drifting colors if you were doing things like matching to previous shots. Perhaps this issue is fixed since but haven't had the need to go back to it.

 

Another odd thing is that the reference monitor is paused on playback when ganged. Same goes for the source monitor. I don't see how that's useful. 

 

Finally I'd actually be curious to hear why reference monitor even exists in the first place as it is functionally the same as the source monitor but more limited? You can make the argument that this way both can be used at the same time perhaps but do you really do that in a real project? 2 viewers already take up plenty of space.

 

This reference monitor only shows the opened sequence, you can't put reference clips or other timelines in there which the source monitor can making it superior. Right now the most practical usecase for a reference for my work would be to compare edit versions. That would only be possible if I could open a different sequence (or exported file) in it and have it playback simultaneously with the current timeline.

I would really use it more if there were more options ... for instance, using it similar to SpeedGrade's "2-up" workflow. Where I could quickly set one monitor view to one clip, the other to another clip for accurate comparison.
