Multiview

You can have two independent Multiviews for each of your mimoLive documents:

  • In the middle column of your mimoLive document window
  • or as a separate floating window which can be shown on an additional display

The detached Multiview window can be placed on a secondary monitor in full-screen mode.

Setting Up The Multiview

By default, the Multiview shows four equivalent video sources including the Program Out. There are several options to change the count of views and layout in the multiview with the action gear in the upper right corner of the multiview.

Automatic Layout

If the Multiview Layout option is set to “Automatic” it calculates the sizes and positions of the views dynamically to max out the dimensions of the video sources.

In the Screen Count popup select the number of views you want to monitor in the Multiview.

With the Fist Screen Exposed option you give the first view a special meaning: This view will always fill the top of the available space.

Combine Multiview and Video Switcher

If you want to be able to trigger the Video Switcher layer by clicking on the Multiview views you need to make
sure that the Multiview shows the same Video Sources as the once that are configured in the Video Switcher layer.

The red ribbon in the Multiview shows which source is currently actively used in the Program Out.

The benefit of this configuration is that you can switch video sources in the Video Switcher layer regardless if its currently selected in the Layer Stack or not.
