Multi-Viewer Shortcut/Button?

I noticed in 14.2 the little multi-viewer icon below the live window was removed and the new button at the top is just on/off and doesn't give you the options. Is there a new multi-viewer options shortcut? I've been accessing them from the toolbar since the update and it feels clunky to change on the fly.

  • This is on Mac but there's an equivalent for Windows if that's what you're on.

  • Thanks Craig, but that seems to also just toggle the multiviewer off and on. I was hoping for a quick way to get to the settings to assign different shots to each monitor. I've got an X-Keys so perhaps I can try programming one of the hot keys, though I haven't tried adjusting those yet.

     I don't think we've had a method to do that. It could be an interesting feature request.

    Multi-Viewer button drops down the interface but you have to assign "by hand."

    • CraigS Interesting, mine doesn't drop down those options which, if it did would be perfect. I'm running on PC (Wirecast Gear) version 14.2.1

      Michael Gelobter Try setting up Multi-Viewer once and then disable it. Quit and start Wirecast and see if the button opens the above.

      I found that if it was previously left in Live Output, the icon only toggles on/off and doesn't drop down the options. You have to go in manually and change that setting to Multi-Viewer.

  • Hmm. I was on multi-viewer and tried toggling that setting to see if it changed anything but I can't seem to get the options to come up from that new button. It still just toggles. It's a new file created in 14.2 but I may try making a new one and see if that behaves any different. 

    Good to know how it should behave though.

     Update to 14.2.1 although that may not make a difference.

    Try starting in a New Blank Document and see if it works there and if you can get it to stop opening, include those circumstances as well.

    I'm finding once Multi-Viewer is setup the button only toggles after that as well. It seems in may only work on first use.
