Any plans on dual monitor support in either EffectsLab or CompositeLab? Every time I go to use either of these apps, I have to disable one of my monitors. Maybe Im missing a setting or something?

Hmm, are you running one monitor off a laptop or both off a desktop? If your using it with a laptop I imagine you could run all your other apps on the secondary monitor and composite lab on the first. I also believe that you can set the dimensions of the lab programs to non-full screen. have you tried that?

Thanks dude +1

Both monitors are connected to a desktop. I tried the non full screen setting and that works, but only when I set the start-up resolution down one setting, and its still not really right. Would definitely like to see these apps support dual monitors properly.

Better support of modern monitor systems, including dual monitors, would be a welcome feature, and has been noted by the development team.

Also, a minor semantics point here, but duel and dual are different words. Duel is an arranged conflict between two individuals, and dual refers to something in two parts. Just FYI.
