    Strange Geometry Behaviour

    Hello Luminal, I've already seen some projectors with an inclination sensor to change the trapeze depending on the position of the projector... We've removed the option in the projector menu. Good luck! Benoit

    WatchPax Died?

    Really looks like WP1. There's only one miniDisplayPort? Can you send picture of your DP dongles also? And maybe try other one? Rgds, Benoit

    WatchPax Died?

    Hi Franz, Is it a Watchpax 1 or 2? With watchpax 1 you need active miniDisplayPort dongles. Else can you remote control your unit from the production computer? Regards, Benoit

    @DavidPatrick, and the Dynamic Image Server? Since 6.2 it's suppose to work well with videos...

    NewTek NDI with Alpha

    Hi DavidPatrick, Just a stupid question and I’m curious: Watchout is a media player and it's totally designed to play video, so why do you want to use an other software to play video and stream it to Watchout? I had tested the streaming from VLC in NDI but just for geek testing purpose. I don’t see why you could need it... Best, Benoit

    gotoControlCue to Aux timeline

    Hi PierreLuc, I use TCP habitually but it should be the same in UDP: gotoControlCue "Cue2" false "Timeline 1" gotoControlCue "Cue1" false "Timeline 1" Best, Benoit

    Hi Pierre Luc, These kind of errors often come from the network. Can you describe your network set up please? Do you have other system running on the same network? Kind regards, Benoît

    Hello Pierre Luc, If you open the specification window of your virtual display, did you check "Media preview : High quality"? Best regards, Benoit

    Setting expressions to be timed

    Hello Mindopera, Why do you pause the main timeline? You can set a 10mn live cue in the main timeline and in the aux timeline triggered by the udp message you set a control cue that jump the main timeline at the end of the 10mn live cue. Benoit

    Hi Raphael, Unfortunately no, it will not work. There is a limit of 6 displays per GPU (it seems to be a Windows limit, not sure why…). So if you plug 2 of your MST hub on your GPU, you will be only able to activate 6 displays. An other option is to use video processor to split one video output. For example the Datapath FX4. There are 2 down side of this: - First it’s much more expensive than a MST hub - Then it will limit the warping feature of Watchout Best, Benoit

    sync and refresh problem watchpax 2

    Hello all, We discuss together with Jean Luc and it appears the show cache was corrupted. After deleting the show folder on the Watchpax and the Cache folder on the producer everything works fine. Hope it will help someone. Best, Benoit
  15. Hi MisterK, That’s a big list ! It seems most of your issues are related to performance or stability of the server. May I suggest you should look to Watchmax or your local premium partner server (you’re based in France, no? It would be a pleasure to show you projects where we have [email protected] per server with lots of video playing…) To answer some of your questions: - SpeedStep is supposed to be disabled on most CPU except for Xeon W, I don’t think your CPU is a Xeon W (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/processors/xeon/w-processors.html) - HAP is definitively the best choice for encoding, yes you can lose a bit of time when encoding or uploading but it works so better. The time you spend in preparation is generally saved later… - If you start the explorer on the display server, yes you need to restart the server. But why do you need to start explorer? - Miro (correct me I I’m wrong) talked about ECC but it’s for system RAM and not GPU (GPU is another story). I don’t think you have ECC RAM on your computer. The ECC memory modules are server grade and the issues you are facing are not related to that I think. - Watchout 6.2.2 is still working with Windows 7 x64, if you’re not confident with Windows 10, stay to windows 7! Feel free to call me if you want to discuss. Best, Benoit
