[Andy Neil] "I suspect any "second" monitor like the angle viewer will be only for specialized tasks and not as a basic clip viewer."

Given what they did with the Angle Viewer, I don't think it would be too far fetched to see a "Gang" feature since that's needed and I can't see another way around that.

I think what will also happen is better contextual use of the 2-up view.
For example, currently trimming by mouse calls the two up but if you trim by keyboard, no 2-up. That should change (one hopes). BTW FCP7 behaved that way as well but it was less critical because you had Viewer, Canvas.

I don't think Apple has much motive, given the GUI philosophy, to have an alway on Viewer Canvas. I do thing Gang and Contextual 2-up are viable though.

One way to look at it:
1) the need to see two things in motion such as Angle in Multicam and Gang.
2) the need to compare a changing point to a stationary point in time.

Apple's bifurcating the function that was always on Viewer Canvas for more contextual purpose.
