I’ve got a 17” usb-c monitor. It’s not useful for LF right now but I was thinking the extra real-estate might come in handy.
Often times, my projects have a plethora of clips, each with maxed-out layers. Sometimes, I go in to edit mode and have to pop back to timeline mode to reference the next clip. Maybe something simple like LF recognizing an external monitor so the main timeline stays on the monitor while editing on the iPad? Just an idea...

As always, love LF and the team!

Hi Jack, it’s been a while!

When you connect the monitor do you get what looks like an airplay button in the bottom right of your iPad display?

(I’ve not got a usb c display to try it myself)

This is how it should look when connecting via HDMI! I would imagine that its the same with USB-C but I don’t know for sure.

Long time, no see! :)

Not for LF... it just mirrors my ipad.

Ah, don't know then is the answer, sorry Jack

Any more detail on make of monitor?

EDIT: Does this help?

What’s a little annoying is you cannot use the USB-C cable that comes in the box with the iPad. You need a USB-cable that supports ‘high-bandwidth’ connections. This includes the USB-C cable that will have come with the display. If you don’t have. a cable handy, confusingly, Apple will suggest buying a Thunderbolt 3 cable from the Apple Store to do this. You can get this one from Belkin for $10. Even though the iPad does not support Thunderbolt, the cables are backwards compatible with the high-bandwidth USB-C.

I learned that the frustrating way, too... my display came with both and it took me a while to figure out the difference.

Holy Smokes, that’s it! It does work for usb-c, too!
That sneaky AirPlay button, I never noticed it.

Cheers!
