I haven’t had any problem viewing full screen on a second HP monitor.
Since the latest upgrade I can’t view video anymore. I have a HDMI hookup on both
the monitor and my computer (tower). Does anyone know how to configure this
differently to view through the second monitor?
I have an apple cinema HD display and an HP 2311x so I can just look at
the window full screen separately. I had it connected with HDMI cable from
monitor to the computer. I have an ATI Radeon HD 5770 graphics card.
This worked perfectly before, but now it doesn’t work. Do I have to go through
the firewire on the mac? The monitor has a few other cables but none that
go through firewire.
After Effects does not recognize that you have more than one monitor. Adobe Monitor 1 and 2 will only appear when After Effects sees more than one monitor being used for your desktop.
Is your 2nd monitor mirroring your desktop or do you have the desktop spread across both monitors. Mirroring needs to be disabled. Post a screenshot of your System Preferences > Display control panel if you continue to have issues.
BTW, you should uncheck Adobe DV. If you’re not using a Firewire DV device all it is going to do is drag on the performance in After Effects.
It seems that displays>system preferences doesn’t recognize my
monitor and I have mirroring options turned off. I have an ATI Radeon
HD 5770 card. The monitor is HP so I can’t download any drivers.
It works with all prior versions of AE… should I try to find a different
cable besides HDMI?
When you do this, in Preference > Video Preview, a new device called Blackmagic Playback should appear. If you don’t see it, open Premiere Pro on that computer and look in Preferences > Playback for the same thing, and test whether preview works from Premiere Pro.
