    Wish List: More than One Playback Monitor?

    I'm trying to edit an interview between two people. I have one video track on the interviewer and the second track on the guest. I'd LOVE to be able to see both videos play simultaneously so that I can see the best shots to use for editing the piece. I'm not talking about external monitors, but internal within Avid.

    Is there anyway I can see two video monitors playing my sequence at the same time to pick out the best shots?

    Thanks much.

    You could fake it with Picture-in-Picture.

    Hmmm, that's interesting...use picture in picture, watch video and add locators along the way for editing points, then remove pip....

    Thanks, this may have to do it if there's no simpler way. Thanks again.
