I recently added a third monitor and would like to use it as my preview monitor, the other two monitors being used for timeline, and bin. When i had two monitors, all I had to do was either assign the playback monitor in the project settings, or manually enter a full screen preview when my panel is on the desired screen... Ever since adding a third monitor, this has all stopped working.
When i have panels open on all three monitors, the full screen preview only covers about 1/4th of my screen (1080p monitor). This doesn't happen, however, if all of my premiere panels are on one screen. Simply put, I can use 2 monitors and have a full screen preview. If I'm using all 3 monitors to spread out my panels, full screen preview doesn't work on ANY of my monitors and I get a partial preview.
This is extremely frustrating, as full screen preview seems like an extremely basic feature that a video editor (ESPECIALLY A PAID ONE) should have figured out. Multiple monitor full screen preview is extremely, extremely basic in a video editor and if this can't support a full screen preview with 3 monitors it's pretty hard to call this a professional editing program.
I should add:
- I've subbed out the 3rd monitor with several other monitors, the same result applies.
- I've subbed out the other monitors as well, in the event that maybe one of them was causing the issue.
As noted in another thread, I have four monitors in use. And no problem whatever in getting a full-screen output.
A main monitor with the 'home' menu screen on an Ultrawide, 2560x1080. The transmit out option always goes to my UHD monitor. A third, 1920x1080, has a panel 'grooup' on it in my custom workspaces where I have the Production/Project/Bins/Source panels. The fourth monitor is small, and I use it to drag 'floating' panels if I need one.
Never an issue. So not sure what the problem is. Do you have the Premiere main window dragged across multiple monitors?
