    See output window on external monitor AND laptop monitor?

    by helen888 » Thu May 23, 2013 2:12 am

    I'm trying out the demo of Modul8 and am loving the possibilities!

    The only issue I'm having is that for the performance I want to do, my back will be to the screen.

    Is it at all possible to place the output window full screen on a second monitor (the one behind me), but to also have a smaller copy of the output window on my laptop monitor, so that I can see what the audience is seeing as I manipulate controls inside of Modul8?
    If this isn't possible, I'd be working blind and obviously it wouldn't be effective. :(

    Can something like this be done? Thank you so much for your help!

    You can do this using the Advanced Output.

    See page 84 of the documentation. But instead of following the tutorial in making 3 outputs make only 2 and make sure that the two 'clips' you create overlap each other.

    - Assign 1 'clip' to 'Output Main'
    - Assign the other to 'Output 2'

    Now when you enable full screen your main monitor and the output will display the same image.

    I had started working with Modul8 some time back, but I was not successful in creating this external window. I would like you to know how you are going on with your work and anyone who can help regarding this problem.
