话题: 4 Deck question
Hi, I use 4 decks for video and I've forgotten how to preview decks 3 and 4, haven't used that function for a while.
So, for example, if I have Deck 1 outputting to a projector and I want to preview the content of Deck 3 to add a cue point but I don't want to change the output to Deck 3 at this point. I thought I had set up keyboard shortcuts, but I can't remember what they were!
So what is the mouse method for this?

If you are using the Default skins or any other custom that only show left and right Video outputs, you could use the actions leftvideo_button and rightvideo_button to set a deck as left/right for Video and then the same button again to return to the default selection.
So in your case for Deck 3..
deck 3 rightvideo_button
to set Deck 3 as Right side Video and preview its video on the Right deck (assuming that your active deck is Deck 1)
deck 4 leftvideo_button for the opposite case.
If you want to map a key on your controller that exists on both sides you can try..
device_side 'left' ? deck 1 leftdeck ? deck 3 rightvideo_button : deck 1 rightvideo_button : deck 2 rightdeck ? deck 4 leftvideo_button : deck 2 leftvideo_button

Alternatively, you can use a custom skin that has video previews for all 4 decks, such as the Blocks.
