Odd 2 Monitor Discovery
on Feb 9, 2010 at 3:08:54 pm

I have an observation and I don't know if it's an OS thing, an FCP thing or an AJA thing :

I am cutting down a long sequence into a new sequence for the promo, so I set up my 2 monitors so that I had the existing long sequence on the left monitor - usually used for bins and tools - and the new sequence and the player and canvas on the right (and usual) monitor as it would be helpful to see both sequences in front of me as I cut and paste from one to the other.

However I have discovered, the relocated sequence does not play video - only audio. Put the sequence back in the right monitor and the video is back again.

Is this normal? Can I make my plan work?

Kona LHi
Mac Pro Dual Quad 2.88
OS 6.0.2
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
FCP 7.0.1
10g RAM

I used to do this with my Media 100 back in the dark ages and it worked great.

Thanks for any input!

Yes, you need to tear off the appropriate tab from the canvas, or select the appropriate tab i the canvas depending on which sequence you want to see. If you tear off the tab and bring it over to the matching sequence, you should be fine.

Hope that makes sense. It's an FCP thing.

I just tested it because I was not sure I was following but tried it and you are absolutely right. Now, is there a keyboard shortcut for switching between those tabs, I wonder?

shift-command-bracket (left or right bracket) cycles tabs in the same window, but if you tear off the tab in the canvas, whichever sequence you select will play.

If you decide to keep both tabs in the same canvas, then use the above shortcut.

Hope that makes sense. This is easy to show someone, hard to type and explain.

That is soooo cool! Even better than what I wanted! I have a canvas and a sequence in each monitor! I love it. Thanks!
