Small preview of second monitor in main monitor

    Have you tried creating a Custom Workspace with a small browser window on the secondary monitor? You should be able to create a workspace with the configuration you need. I've done similar things with a workspace that I use for culling. In that one I have a browser on the primary monitor that shows all images in a matrix, and another browser window on the other monitor that shows whatever image(s) I've selected.

    Alternatively, if all you need is to see what the camera sees (like Live View) and if you have an iPad or iPhone (the phone's screen is pretty small, though), you could get an app like Duet and mirror your Mac's screen on the iOS device.

    Thanks! But what I need is not a different Capture One setup, I think, but an app that would allow me to preview the second monitor in the main one. Specially for something as simple as place the viewer's window at the right spot in the monitor, and make sure what the client is looking at is what I want them to look at.

    I made a mock up, like you have the monitor one setup and a small preview of the second screen in the lower corner. I imagine there's some third party app that could do this. For example for events or a variety of set ups.

    Hi Pablo,

    You can do it by creating a dual monitor workspace, and then displaying both screens (main monitor + second monitor) on the same display, reducing the size of the second monitor window as you wish.

    Hello Robert, thank you for your reply

    But what I want is a preview of the second monitor, not a small second monitor within the main one.

    So the requirement is more like an Operating system level multiple screens viewer than a feature of the C1  application?

    I'm not understanding why you can't just resize a second Browser window to get what you want. Maybe you took Robert Farhi's suggestion too literally: you can just resize the second Browser window (i.e. "tool") to whatever size you want.

    Failing that, though, would a remote viewer like a CamRanger with its own app window work for you? The idea is to wirelessly tether the CamRanger to your computer, tablet or phone and use its app window to show what you want.

    I use a CamRanger2 when, for example, I'm trying to create a studio setup and can't be at the computer to monitor what the camera's seeing. For that, I'll stand wherever I need to for creating the scene. CamRanger2 is mounted on the camera and an iPad with CamRanger2 software where I can see it. Then I'll adjust the scene as needed.

    Similarly, you could run CamRanger2 software on a computer and see the same thing.

    Alternatively, maybe set a camera to view your computer screen and then stream the device's camera display to wherever you need it? (I haven't tried this)

    Most of the photoshoots there's a keynote mood-board we need to show in the client's' monitor, or there's the Capture's viewer window that need to be rearranged to fit full screen.

    How do we do this: we drag the window in front of us to the secondary monitor (or in case of the Viewer's window we just hit on the viewer's menu). But we have the issue we are blind to what the other monitor is seeing, maybe the keynote is cut half screen, maybe the viewer is misplaced. 

    How do we solve it, we need to have eyes directly on the monitor, which is very inefficient. We would need to rotate the client's monitor to see what is showing, or go with a wireless mouse to fix the problem.

    That's why I'd like a preview of the second monitor in the main one, so we can oversee what the client is looking at. 

    It's as @SFA says, not a feature of C1, but a OS or App matter.

    I put a silly scheme to be more graphical.
