Viewing context in broadcast monitor

forgive me for my super beginner question, but it’s driving me crazy and I can’t seem to find how to do it.

Currently my broadcast monitor output (using DVI/HDMI, single screen mode) will only show the node that is selected. I can’t seem to get it to stick to a specific view (context 1, 2, result, etc).

is there an option or setting that will change that behavior?

Yes sir, there is. Not in front of my machine right now so pardon the vagueness…

Flame / Preferences / Broadcast Monitor. There should be a box called Viewport Monitoring. Click it. Go back into Batch. Now, at the top right corner of the frame should be a new little small white bordered window. That becomes the thing that drives what is shown on your broadcast monitor. So, hover over that little box thing, do your Space + 1 / whatchevercontextyouwant WHILST HOVERING OVER THAT BOX and your Broadcast Monitor will now be that Context.


Really bugs me that deselecting Viewport Monitoring in the preference settings, is never stored as a preference!

yes, thank you! I figured there was a way to do it, so many settings and preferences to sort through. :slightly_smiling_face:
Clicking that monitor button on my context view was what I was missing
