    Is there anyway to feed a live video image to the background of the laser preview window?

    Hi Chris,

    Good question. I think the answer is "maybe" ;-)

    I think if you have some fancy video board that can do something called "genlock", where the color BLACK could be treated as "transparent", then it seems that this sort of thing might just be possible.

    Anyone here in this forum know of a better answer for Chris?

    Yes, that is exactly what I do now. I use a form of ChromaColor to overlay the preview window on to the video. However, I would like to be able to do this with out a pile of hardware. Does Showtime have some support for dual monitor systems, so the preview window will fill the secondary monitor without useing a zoom feature?

    Showtime does not have any specific dual-monitor features, beyond what is afforded by Windows itself...
