You can display up to four viewports at a time in the image window of most tools. Multiple viewports are convenient for setting channel values, working in Schematic view, and previewing your results all at the same time without having to switch views.
NoteThe Resize tool supports two viewports; other tools support up to four viewports.
You can apply a different 3D LUT to each viewport.
To view multiple viewports:
- In a tool that supports multiple viewports, click View.
- Select an option from the Viewport Layout box.
|Select: ||To view: |
|1-up ||A single viewport (Alt+1). |
|2-up ||Two viewports, side-by-side (Alt+2). |
|3-up split ||Three viewports, two side-by-side, and one on top (Alt+3). |
|3-up ||Three viewports, side-by-side (Alt+3). |
|4-up ||Four viewports, two up and two down (Alt+4). |
To display views in multiple viewports:
- Do one of the following:
- Place the cursor over the applicable viewport and press its associated keyboard shortcut.
- Click a viewport to select it and then select an option from the View box.
Displaying Widgets in Selected Viewports
If you are working in multiple viewports, you can display widgets such as icons, crop boxes, and 3D scope in all viewports or in a selected viewport.
To display widgets in selected viewports:
- In a tool that supports multiple views, click View.
- From the Widget Display box, select Widget Sel to display widgets in the selected viewport, or select Widget All to display widgets in all viewports.
Changing the Multiview Layout
When you select a multiple viewport layout, a default layout appears, and each viewport is set to display a default view. You can change both the default layout and the views in each viewport to suit your needs.
To change the default viewport layout:
- Do one or more of the following:
- Hold the cursor over the lines dividing the image window and Ctrl-drag. The current zoom/pan settings automatically change so the frame matches its viewport's width.
- Select the viewport to make it current (a yellow border indicates the current viewport) and then select a view option (for example, Front) or press a hotkey (for example, F1).
- To restore the default settings, select an option from the Reset box.
|Select: ||To: |
|Reset Layout ||Restore the default layout for the current viewport layout option. You can also Alt-click a viewport border. |
|Reset All ||Restore the default layout for all viewport layout options. |
Synchronizing Current Frame Display Across All Viewports
By default, when you scrub or jog a clip, only the current viewport (a yellow border indicates the current viewport) is updated. The other viewports continue to display the last frame at which they were parked until you release the cursor. However, you can set all viewports to be updated in sync with the current viewport.
To synchronize the current frame display across all viewports:
- Display the View menu.
- Select an option from the Viewport Update box.
|Select: ||To: |
|Update All ||Update all viewports to display the same frame as the current viewport. |
|Update Sel ||Update only the current viewport. Other viewports continue to display the last frame at which they were parked only once you release the cursor. |
