Re: multiscreen basics

Perhaps if I try to frame what I have gathered from the forums? I think I will need to use 4 QC compositions, exported with QB. Three of them would be set to fullscreen on displays 1, 2, 3 and the 4th composition would need other workarounds to get it to be full screen on the main display. I am unsure how to keep them all in sync. I am unsure if I need the video tools if I am just playing one HD video per QC. I am unsure that I can get these to autostart again if the computer loses power. I am unsure of the best compression type (motion jpeg?) for the 4 videos. I am installing two ssd drives to make sure the videos are not slowed down by read access. The videos will be about 6 min in length, exact same length, different content. I am unsure how to make sure the different QB made apps are using multiple cpus since i have 8 in the machine( and 8 gigs of ram). It seems clear that QCV is useless for my needs. Thanks again for any guidance.

I am happy to do a paypal gift or something if that would inspire some assistance as time is valuable at this point.
