i’ve got two ex9 renderers showing the same content - one is for me, one for the audience. this works fine untill i set one of them to full screen. then this nonsense happens to the one that isn’t full screen. (see attached image)
are you playing video via videotexture in the renderer? then i’d say it is a known bug. all other geometry and textures should work well one fullscreen and the other windowed on the other display. a videotexture can only be visible on one display at a time.
apart from that. span mode is a driver mode. you can always chose between having two independet display resolutions (dualview) or one big desktop (span mode).
depending on your graphiccard (nvidia or ati) you’ll have two different ways to select spanmode. which do you have?
ok. then it is a known problem. as mentioned above videotextures can only always be visible on one “device”. usually every output of your graphiccard is one “device”. in span-mode though both your display outputs form one “device” together and a videotexture can be shown on on both outputs.
span-mode has other drawbacks though: you can only go fullscreen on both displays at the same time.
on nvidia drivers you can achieve span-mode via:
rightclick desktop > properties > settings
here make sure that “extend my desktop…” is not checked.
advanced. something pops out to the left and there…i don’t remember exactly…something with display settings where you can select between “single”, “horizontal span”, “vertical span”, “dualview”.
anybody with an nvidia card help poor vincent? if those drivers wouldn’t change every day we could make a screenshot documentation for this topic since it is rather basic and often causes confusion. still anybody?
