Duplicate After Effects composition window??
on Jan 26, 2012 at 6:01:01 pm

Hi dear cow-guys!

I am having a little issue here. I have just installed my 2nd monitor and am wondering if it would be possible to get a duplicate of the composition-panel.

The thing is; I need a "preview"-monitor and am not planning to buy a special video device to do the job. I actually need to fake this workflow by extending my desktop to the 2nd monitor and duplicate the comp-panel to make it fullscreen.

Any ideas?

Break off the comp panel on its own, move to the other monitor, and make it as big as you please. Almost every dual-monitor computer setup allows this to happen.

Why would you need a second composition window? Why not just work in the big one?
