Viewing canvas full size

Hi Guys,

Sorry if this has been answered before but I tried to find a thread on it and couldn't.

When playing back your sequence in FCP7, how do you get the canvass to be the full size of your screen, and when finished, how do you get it back to its normal size.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Follow these two steps & you should be golden!

1. Choose View > Video Playback, then choose one of the available Digital Cinema Desktop Preview options.

2. Choose View > External Video > All Frames (or press Command-F12).

In the bottom of the view menu set the video and audio playback to "digital cinema desktop -main monitor, then in that same menu, set the video playback to "all frames". Then type on the escape key to go back to smaller size...
