I have a dual monitor Setup consisting of
1) a fairly large, non-high-dpi main screen and
2) a wacom cintiq pro 16 (a 16" 4K Display, thereby very high-dpi).
I'm on Windows 10.
I have AE windows on both screens, but the UI doesnt scale up on the cintiq, leaving me with microscopic interface elements. Obviously I wouldn't want a app-wide scale up since my main monitor looks just fine. My current solution is to scale the cintiq up to 200% using the build in windows 10 UI scaling options, but that also scales the composition viewports content, footage window etc.
So I end up with readable UI but a composition viewport that's not showing a 1:1 representation of the final image (it's scaled by a factor of 2 just like the UI)
Is there a solution for me to see the high-dpi interface on one monitor only?
How can I achieve readable Interface AND an unscaled, 1:1 viewport?
Any helpful tips are greatly appreciated
Short and simple: No. The apps will always adapt to the resolution settings of the primary display device, which obviously your Cintiq is not. You have to switch things around or buy a suitable second monitor.
Thanks man, even though that's obviously not what I wanted to hear
How does the app determine which UI to use? Can I force the high-dpi UI on all monitors somehow?
