Using Dual Monitors in Final Cut Pro X

If you're accustomed to using dual monitors in Final Cut Pro 7 or earlier and are wondering if it can be done in Final Cut Pro X, the answer is Yes!  Or maybe you would just like to expand your workspace in the Final Cut Pro X main window; if you connect a second monitor to your computer, you can show the Viewer on the second monitor to play back video, or the Event Browser on the second monitor to view clips in an Event.

Dual Monitors using Final Cut Pro X

When doing this, keep these simple steps in mind:
  • Connect your second monitor to your computer and make sure it is turned on.
  • In FCPX, choose Window > Show Viewer on Second Display
