Hi folks, New here from WC and trying VMix out.

I do a lot of Powerpoint presentations and like the option to use .ppt within Vmix. But I want to share a .ppt (etc.) on a second monitor. No issues with getting the input set up but the resolution (I believe) is WAY off. I can't get it to show up properly in the Input even though I've tried changing the resolution on the second monitor. It changes the view but I can't get it figured out. It has to be easy....?! Maybe it isn't related to the resolution at all?!

TIA.
Daryl

What version of vMix are you using? have you setup an extended desktop and if so, what are the resolutions of each monitor? What is your project resolution?

Thank you for the reply.

Latest version of Vmix. Downloaded two days ago.

Extended desktop. Note I've tried various combos of resolutions for laptop, second monitor and project.

Project is 1920 X 1080. Would prefer a 4k setup whole on at it.

Tried a few different resolutions.

For what it's worth second monitor is a Samsung UE28E590D, primary is my Dell G7 laptop.

OK. A simple question. Once you have extended the desktop, opened vMix, loaded your Powerpoint file and put it in to the Program (live to air) window, did you turn on the FULLSCREEN function? https://www.vmix.com/hel...ndex.htm?Fullscreen.html

Well good news...tried it again tonight. Everything worked fine. I'm wondering if the re-boot refreshed inputs etc.

Thank you for the help though.
