In the middle of my edit, clips refused to play and my separate external preview monitor blinked back to the desktop.
Now, even after a restart, importing into a new project, reconnecting and disconnecting equipment, I can't get the second monitor option to reappear in my Playback settings window. Where did it go?
How is this Separate External Preview Monitor connected?
- Computer Monitor via Video Card?
- NTSC Monitor via MATROX, BlackMagic, AJA?
- Mental Telepathy?
Window > Source Monitor
Sequence > Sequence Settings > Playback Settings:
- check/uncheck Desktop Video Display During Playback
- set External Device
Hmm, the monitor has mysteriously reappeared. Perhaps I willed it back into working order with my mind powers.
It's connected through a separate graphics card, NVidia GT 120, with a monoprice mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter.
Sounds like a Driver, Video Card, Connection, or Computer issue wherein the Computer lost communication with the Output.
Doesn't sound like a deal breaker if it's only happened once but I can see it quickly becoming frustrating if it becomes a reocurring thing.
Maybe double check your Video Card Drivers, Cables/Connections, and Premiere Pro settings to make sure everything is copasetic.
I thought it was a connection issue, but it persisted even after I reconnected everything, and restarted. Not only that but the monitor was still fully functional in OSX, displaying a desktop, and only failed to be recognized as a monitor by Ppro.
