Hi all!

I'm in CS4 and i need to work on second monitor full screeen.
I've found and try this plugin tp://www.videox.de/
but i can't work on its window and also its have the normal border of a window.

Instead i want to set the composition the same resolution of the native resolution of the second monitor and have the comp preview fullscreen on the second monitor.
So use the first monitor for the interface and work on the second fullscreen, but a real one as i'm watching a movie full screen so without GUI border or window border.

Any help is welcome
peace

It sounds like you need to invest in something like an AJA Kona card to feed an HD monitor.

Uuu that's a huge investiment for me atm.

So do you think the only solution is a piece of hardware to have the composition preview full screen on the second monitor?

Because i'm not using a professional MONITOR but a normal computer monitor so with DVI or VGA input.

And also i'm on PC and i don't know if the KONA support windows.

Thanks

In which case, I recommend that you scale back your desires. You gain nothing by by setting an AE comp to the same size as your monitor.

Instead, you should worry much more about the resolution that you have to DELIVER TO THE PAYING CUSTOMER.

OMG not sure if you found a workaround, but if you are working in SD, a quick non expensive workaround is plug-in a DV cam to you firewire, and output your ram preview through it.

I worked this way for a little while to get accurate colors representations at a studio I freelanced for. Worked great, gave us a true representation of what most likely was going to look like on the worst case scenario.

Hope this help.
