Hi all I have an app that has a UI on one display and a QTCaptureView
on another. The view has a live stream from a DV cam that I am editing
the frames of. What I need is for the view to be full screen without
the title bar on the top of the window. Is there a simple way to
accomplish this? I am thinking of having an NSRect that is the screen
size and setting the views bounds to the rect...would this be the
right way to go about this? Any input is greatly appreciated...thanks!

You are on the right track. See this (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=366289) thread for how to make your app go full screen.

That article is a bit dated, and seems to deal with Carbon. I am currently writing an awesome detailed wiki that covers the problem. I will keep you updated.

AFAIK, the Carbon method is the only way to go full screen. Making a window full screen isn't an issue, but actually hiding the menu bar and Dock requires Carbon. I'm really surprised Apple hasn't rolled this into NSApplication yet.
