Detachable preview window

It seems the video preview window is the only one that does not detach.

Yet, it is the only one that i want to detach.

i really prefer to detach it and move it to a second monitor, than the inverse of detaching all the others to move to my first monitor.


Under Settings…
Screen 0 or Screen 1 is dependent upon which monitor Shotcut is active on.
For me, Shotcut is active on Screen 0, as you can see it’s a bit greyed out.
To go back, select None.

This will fill your entire 2nd monitor as the preview.


thank YOU!!!

How to do this in Shotcut 23.11.29? The solution shown is no longer available.

This feature had to be removed for technical reasons.


  • Detach every other panel and move them to a different monitor.
  • Get a hardware DeckLink card for full-screen preview on a separate HDMI or SDI monitor.
