    second output monitor

    by lingity » Fri Dec 03, 2004 8:02 pm

    How can I project my video whilst I am mixing in modul8? The Projector always shows my desktop surface. there is no option in the system preferences where you can undo the synchronization.
    I've got an iBook G4 933 MHz, Mac OS X.

    By default, the iBooks aren't supposed to have extended desktop functionality. HOWEVER, if you look for a nice little utility called Screen Spanning Doctor you'll have what you want in one click!

    Well, the problem of the iBook is that it does only mirrorring of the main screen. Now the good news is that it is not a hardware limitation but only a lock in the firmware (read->apple wants you to buy PowerBooks) - there are some hacks floating around on the internet that allows you to unlock this functionality of your 3D card.

    If I remember correctly there are several threads about that in the VJCentral forums. Check it out here:
