Working with 2 Composition Viewers isn't possible.
I work on interlaced footage, so I've to pre comps the rotobrush layer in a 50 FPS comp,
while maintaining my footage for final render in a 25 FPS comp.
My general workflow is LOCKING the 25FPS Composition window on one screen, while the work itself is done on another screen with another Composition Viewer. so I can use it to monitor the final outcome of the rotobrush.
this doesn't seem possible, the Rotobrush just freezes& the progression bar just keeps on looping,
once i unlock the Composition Viewer of 25FPS and all Composition Viewer are on the working timeline everything is back and working.
on a side note 🙂
it's an AMAZING tool!
it does MAGIC.
Thank you for reporting this issue. We haven't yet been able to reproduce the scenario you have described using QuickTime DNxHD 50i footage and docking/locking the Composition panel next to the Layer panel. Are you still experiencing this issue in the latest Beta build ( 184.108.40.206 as of today )?
If possible, could you provide your system specs and possibly a screen recording/video of how you have your panels set up when you encounter the looping progression bar? It would be most helpful if you could send a collected version of your project to email@example.com along with the specs and recording.
Thanks again for reporting this issue, and thanks for any additional information.
