First time caller, long time listener...

I have a multi-monitor setup, and I would like to:

Duplicate a composition viewer panel such that it appears on both monitors. <--- Successful
Have one viewer display the composition at 50% resolution, and the other viewer at full resolution. <---Failure

It appears that the preview resolution synchs across all compositions. Is there a way to make it independent?

No. Consider the view resolution a property of a composition, not the viewer window. There can be only one.

You could precompose the comp and open a separate viewer for the second comp at whatever resolution you like, though depending on what you need the second viewer for, this may not solve your issue.

Thanks for the reply. I went with that method, and it's a fair substitute. I'm doing projection mapping on a surface that's at an awkward angle relative to my workstation. I didn't need a full resolution view of all of the composition effects, just a general sense that colors were in the right areas. Thanks!
