    I am trying to find a very cheap and simple solution to outputing video from logic pro to a projector. I am a music producer and know very little in regards to digital video hardware. I am led beleive I need some sort of firewire video converter but finding it difficult to know where to look.

    I have found 3 products that look like they might be what i'm after but need advice. They are: Miglia Director's Cut 'Take 2' (that looks like it's discontinued), Canopus ADVC-55 and Canopus ADVC110.

    Am i way off track?? would really appreciate any help coz I feel I've hit a dead end with my limited knowledge.

    If you just want Logic's video output to go to a different display, just hook up the projector to the second CRT/DVI OUT jack on your computer. And in OS X prefs set it up as an extended display, no mirroring.

    Then in

    Logic>Prefs>Video>Video Song Settings

    choose Window, and drag that Window over to the second display.

    The firewire out option there is for something quite expensive like this:

    and/or a special NTSC display which would give exact frame accurate monitoring. Then you are getting expensive...
