    I have a new 2017 iMac which has the two mini USB display port outputs on the back. I am using the Apple mini USB display multi port adapter to export an HDMI signal to my second monitor and then ideally I want to use the second adapter to export the signal of my main edit monitor to a large flatscreen above my edit system.

    I have an ultra studio desktop adapter from Blackmagic but it takes the older Thunderbolt/Display port type cable so I am not sure I can use that anymore.

    Bottom line is I am trying to use one monitor to extend my desktop, and one monitor for client viewing. I am also using my iMac screen as my main screen interface.

    I am probably making no sense.

    I want to use iMac for Resolve Screen 1
    I want to use a second monitor for Resolve Screen 2
    And I want to output the main window of resolve to a grading/client monitor.

    All with the newer iMac which has two mini USB display ports.

    Your going to need a black magic mini monitor to output video from any computer to a second monitor from Resolve. The only way. If you do not have Thunderbolt 2, then get a Thunderbolt 2 to thunderbolt 3 adaptor.

    If you want 4K video then you will have to get the Ultra Studio 4K extreme 3 or the Ultra studio 4K with a thunderbolt 2 to Thunderbolt 3 adaptor
