Customisable Preview Screen

Post by bentodman93 »

Hi! Would it be possible to request the option to change the Preview monitor to a custom virtual output from Advanced Output?

I currently run my shows with pretty much everything in Target layer - Active Layer then uses 4-6 'playbacks' on my APC 40. To preview these I use a secondary 7" monitor with a custom mapping setup like a multiview.

It would also be really handy if I could force the input guide to stay after the window has closed but place behind the overlayed slices. This would let me easily add labels to the preview.

I hope you understand what i mean!

Great work

More preview options are already on the request list. An automated multiview, with program, preview and actual indicators is on that list.

We're hesitant to shoehorn functionality like preview guides into other features like output guides, that have a fundamentally different purpose. In our experience, that always leads to complications later down the line.
