Anyone know if it’s possible to AirPlay or screen mirror ‘full screen’ video preview?

I haven't tested it, but I see no reason why it shouldn't. That's because Lightworks uses regular system resource to displays the fullscreen preview.

As long as you can configure a mirror or a second display on your system, vonnected via AirPlay or cable, it should work. If you configure it as second display, you can route the preview to one of monitors from within Lighworks by settings 'System Settings.User Interface.Fullscreen preview monitor'.

Let us know if you should face trouble, with some details of your hardware, OSX and Lightworks version.

More experimentation needed but have managed to get full screen output when second (airplay) monitor (LG smart TV) is set as mirror to MacBook Pro Retina display. When set as secondary screen rather than mirror it doesn’t work. At least I got a full screen preview with both Lightworks and Avid albeit a tad ‘jerky’!

I think, a cable connection is likely to fix the latter.

I wonder why configuring a second monitor via AirPlay doesn't work as expected?

Agreed on the cable, as I said, more experimentation needed? Has to be me!

Doesn’t seem to work with airplay. Configured airplay TV as second display and enabled use as same not ‘separate space’ so apps can be stretched across both displays. The record monitor does not play video you just get a still frame from last parking position. Timeline plays audio via TV but no video. Changing full screen monitor option makes no difference which is a shame as this works fine under windows. So, works as mirror but not second display.

Thank you for the detailed feedback.

It could be that this is simply an issue of the bandwidth of the WiFi connection used by AirPlay. If you have a chance to switch to cable, let us know how that works.

All works ‘as expected’ via HDMI. Shame really, convenience of working at dining table and Air Playing to 55” TV only doable ‘after a fashion’.
