Odd 2 Monitor Discovery
by peter tours on Feb 9, 2010 at 3:10:08 pm
I have an observation and I don't know if it's an OS thing, an FCP thing or an AJA thing :
I am cutting down a long sequence into a new sequence for the promo, so I set up my 2 monitors so that I had the existing long sequence on the left monitor - usually used for bins and tools - and the new sequence and the player and canvas on the right (and usual) monitor as it would be helpful to see both sequences in front of me as I cut and paste from one to the other.
However I have discovered, the relocated sequence does not play video - only audio. Put the sequence back in the right monitor and the video is back again.
Is this normal? Can I make my plan work?
Mac Pro Dual Quad 2.88
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT
I used to do this with my Media 100 back in the dark ages and it worked great.
Thanks for any input!
