    Watchnet and Latest Chrome - Sliders

    Hi Shane! This sounds like the Chrome issue that effect certain touch-screens (interfaces) - but not all. The last version I know works for all is v60.0.3112.114. (Sep 2017)

    Send SSH commands from WATCHNET

    Hi! We (PIXILAB) might have a solution for you. Can you shed som light on how the authentication works. Is it done with credentials (name and password) or with a certificate? Fredrik S at pixilab.se

    Controlling DMX Lights using Output Tasks

    I know this is an old thread, but I know forum members are constantly searching the forum for advise and solutions and sometimes the hit is an "oldie". So, regarding this topic, we had exactly the same problem, using exactly the same interface - the ELC Buddy. And it was indeed the ELC buddy which caused the issues described above. Swapping interface to a standard ENTTEC ODE solved the problem.

    WatchPax 4 - USB 3.0 Live Feed

    Hi Giri! Yes, the Epiphan AV.io family is plug and play with WATCHPAX, providing you have the latest firmware installed in your WATCHPAX (this is important - please check with Dataton regarding WATCHPAX firmware versions for USB Capture drivers). I have even used dual interfaces, on a single WATCHPAX4, on several projects. All the best and good luck with your projects. PS I think there was a small problem in one of the firmware-versions where you had to make a re-load (Stage menu/Manage Display Computer/Remote Access) of WATCHOUT in the WATCHPAX after boot up. Otherwise, it could not find the driver (Video In menu was greyed out). I have only experienced this on WATCHPAX2 though. Perhaps Dataton can shed some light if this issue is solved.

    Import Layers from Photoshop

    Do you want to import Photoshop layers to separate Watchout media elements? One of our long-time users, Keith Tromer of Corporate Imaging has written an application which does just that! It trims, positions and sets centered anchor points. It even optionally creates elements in compositions and deals with blend modes! I’m thoroughly impressed with what Keith has accomplished, and I can definitely see the utility of such program. --- At this time, it is not available for release, they are testing the waters to find out if there would be enough interest to warrant a public release. Have a look at the demo video on their website and Be sure to fill out the form below the video to let them know you’re interested. http://www.corpimaging.com/photoshop-import-for-watchout/ --- They are looking forward to hearing from you!

    Global brightness/contrast adjustment

    Hi Michel! You can copy your complete show into a "composition" and apply a brightness/contrast tween track to this composition.

    Problems with the Start script for Display Software

    Hej Mathias! Can it be the space (mellanslag) in your show name.

    4k capture

    Hi Tim! I agree. Dataton should update the available choices in the Live Video dialog box But don't worry about the input list. Just choose "RGB" or whatever. And "Other" as Video Standard and enter and the desired resolution manually. Jim's response above re. the Vision SC-DP2 is as accurate as always. Nice card.

    Can't delete stage tiers

    Hi Christian! Sorry, there is no way to delete Stage Tiers. You can Rename them but not Delete them. Dataton is aware of this common "feature-request" Btw, are you coming to MonitorEXPO in Copenhagen next week (Nov 2-3)? We will be showing off with Projection mapping, LED displays and the brand new WATCHPAX4

    Interaction Name 6.1.1

    Nice job, Benoit. And good use of the "interaction name" feature. Thanks for sharing.

    Feature suggestion - NDI support

    Hi Tim! Thanks for the good report. Just curious, did you test any camera (SDI or HDMI) to NDI converter boxes? like the Bird-Dog-Studio http://www.bird-dog.tv

    Blurry Projection (aliasing issue?)

    Jim is correct but I do believe this has been fixed by Datapath. It was adressed at a Dataton-Datapath about two years ago. Not sure which driver/firmware version is required and what hardware it applies to though. Dataton, please chime in...

    QuickTime for Windows

    WATCHOUT had a hard dependency on QT initially. But this was removed several years ago in anticipation of this event (Apple ends support). The only function that currently requires QT is the video/audio export functions. Even this is not really that urgent, as QT should continue to work just fine. The part you may want to disable is the web browser plug-in, which is the vector for most security issues.

    Difference between Datapath HD4 and Vision HD4+

    True, as long as the Datapath card you're using supports "LiveStream" (capture technology) http://www.datapath.co.uk/datapath-technology/311-livestream-technology
  15. Hi PedroR! If you're on version 6, I suggest you try the HAP codec. The result can be pretty amazing, especially the playback performance.

    Project won't open

    More of a preventive advise (sorry): For a show that will move Production computers frequently, I would always keep an extra consolidation copy. A successfully consolidated WATCHOUT show will never fail on you.

    No capture of VisionRGB-E2s with WO 6.0.2

    OK, if you follow the following procedure I can assure you it will work (unless the card or the PC or its PCI slot is broken) 1) Uninstall WATCHOUT 2) Remove both the Datapath card and the Blackmagic card from the machine. 3) Uninstall all drivers for Datapath and BlackMagic 4) Restart your PC 5) Perform any pending Windows OS updates on your PC (which Windows version are you using btw?) 6) Install the Datapath card and its latest driver (VisionInstall v7.11.0) in "USER MODE" (IMPORTANT - DO NOT USE "KERNEL MODE") 7) Install WATCHOUT 6.02 8) Open a new show and test the Datapath Capture Do not skip any of the steps in the list above and do not install the BlackMagic card before you have the Datapath card functioning again.

    WATCHOUT not seeing video capture

    Excellent Thomas! Just one small amendment to the last screen capture (above). "CTRL-D" for update (Not "CTRL-R")

    Hap codec v9 not working with Watchout

    Hi Pertti! This issue you reported is currently in research. We will get back to you shortly.

    Matrox C900 video cards

    Hi Samuel! Thanks for your post. I had a look at the C900 at ISE. It is a very interesting card. Although it will probably work from the technical point of view, there is currently a limitation in WATCHOUT, which is set to 6 outputs. So currently there will be no joy with card in WATCHOUT Over to the guys at Dataton for a comment.

    FirePro W4xxx suitable for 4xFHD application?

    Hi Nalle! The W4100 will work just fine as long as you're only playing back 4 FullHD video streams. But more important, for the video performance, is to choose a decent processor and a good hard drive, preferable a SSD. And perhaps most important of all is to choose the appropriate encoding for the videos. Please do not hesitate to contact me off forum for further assistance. Good Luck!

    Aux Timeline Looping

    Thanks Tom!

    Aux Timeline Looping

    Hi Tom! We do apologize for the FreeRun/Looping bug in WATCHOUT version 6.0. It has been fixed and a maintenance update will be released shortly. You also mention that you have had other issues with WO 6. We would like to know what these are. You are most welcome to contact me off forum so we can sort this out.

    Artnet record and play

    Just to avoid potential misunderstandings: You can record multiple DMX (Artnet) universes and play them back in WATCHOUT (in version 5 and 6). You just add one "DMX recording" media for each universe. You bring them in as cues on different layers on the timeline. You align the cues to start at the correct time and record as many as you want... but, as Mikes says above, 110 universes might be a bit extensive. FYI, at a reacent staging project they successfully recorded 4 full universes (2,048 channels) for moving light fixtures and played everything back in perfect sync together with projection and LED screens.
