    Full screen preview

    Hello All - yet again

    I have found that when I've exported a video - doesn't really matter what to, but let's say in MP4 to a flash drive - then play it through on a large TV I find that I havn't corrected video quality as well as I thought I had. So I decided to connect a TV to the HDMI connector on the Graphics card. Windows and Studio see this as a third monitor and can be configured in the preview settings of Control Panel. Good, I thought, but when I selected full screen in the editor window, what displayed on the TV was the currently selected item in the library. It will not play the timeline there. Neither does it display the timeline in the external (second) monitor. Now I've changed it back to the way it was previously, that is, full screen to second monitor and it also now displays the selected item in the library and not the timeline. Moreover, it won't even select full screen on the Application (first) Monitor. In other words, I now have no full screen display. I've tried restarting Studio to no avail.

    Whoops-a-blinkin'-daisy Mate. Any ideas?

    Why don't you simply undock the preview window, send it to your 3rd mintor and from there display it fullscreen ?

    Hi Saby

    Thank you for your quick response. First I'll just say I ran the Control Panel Reset option and I'm back to the original condition. Secondly I'm afraid I don't quite understand your suggestion. What do you mean by undock the preview window? could you please be more specific.

    Now you can move the preview window wherever you want in your screen including a 3rd screen. If you click once again the small icon, the preview window goes back to its original position where it belongs to the main window of Pinnacle Studio.

    BTW, you can do the same with the timeline and the library => undock/dock them.

    Re: Re:Full screen preview

    Yep. Got that. It sort of works ok but I'm currently working on an old movie that was recorded in 4:3 so I need to fix that. However, that is not an issue for you as I need to change the TV from 19:9

    Many thanksd for your kind assistance. I should really have found that for myself.

    Best regards
