    Watchout 6.3.1 Bug Copying Tweens

    Could it be that this is actually on of those Windows 10 bugs? Had copy/paste/move issues -it suddenly stopped working) for some months in Exlorer, only restarting the Explorer process(es) would help. I even made a shortcut (.bat) for it on the desktop. Since about two weeks or so this seems to be gone. After some win-updates.
  2. Hi, Happy New Years to all! Keep in mind that the framerate you want to play out with is an issue here. 4k in 50/60 fps is a different animal than 25/30 fps. Just sayin‘

    ProRes encoding question?

    We had success with ProRes (standard) 25fps, 6480x1080. That was an earlier WO version 6.

    PNG Sequences not playing

    In my experience PNGs are not suited for playback. Just as a mastering format. They take too long to decode. In the WO documentation TGA or TIFF is recommended. https://www.dataton.com/watchout-overview-uncompressed-video-image-sequence-playback cheers
  5. I had this every time with win 10 this year. My setup was different though. Anyway, it always helped to restart the display machines after setting the frequencies to what needed. After that it worked all day.

    Network HTTP Video not playing in 6.2.2

    Out of curiosity ... Why not use NDI? cheers.

    HAP Codec with AfterCodecs - Poor results

    Well, I would just try to keep that Version as long as possible. Or until Adobe brings back support for HAP or Apple makes „Quicktime great again“. I am wondering why there are so many codecs and so little one can really use.

    NewTek NDI with Alpha

    you can play back clips with alpha from Premiere Pro, as an example.

    Latency V Frame Rate

    hm. with a newer smartphone camera you could test it yourself using slomotion video recording. And then tell us all what you figured out. cheers

    How to get the queue time

    audible timecode track that is routed to a separate output? dmx track (artnet)? cheers
  11. ALWAYS when updating Adobe CC Software check the option to keep the older version instead of removing it.

    Windows HAP without QuickTime?

    You can download an „older“ version, like cc2017

    Windows HAP without QuickTime?

    Anyway, you were almost right. Everybody should be aware, that Adobe is leaving Quicktime 32bit (on Windows-PC) behind with the latest update of CC2018 (as of march 2018). That AfterCodec-plugin is still working in AE though. That means that a lot of older Codecs (like Photo-Jpeg) are missing for rendering. Even HAP is gone. There is already a petition on its way to bring it back.

    Windows HAP without QuickTime?

    Hi, Your Screenshot looks like the Media-export in Premiere Pro. Don't get misleaded by the few presets. Choose "Match source" , modify it - and yes, choose any codec available on your system using the dropdown-menu in the video section and then save them as your own. https://www.dropbox.com/s/n3j8ct28gbzbss5/premiere-export.JPG?dl=0 Prores can be exported from After Effects using https://aescripts.com/aftercodecs/ or https://aescripts.com/aempeg/ I have been successfully using AfterCodecs ProRes (422HQ and 4444) for some time, knowing that it is NOT the original and therefore not playing for example on blackmagic-output cards. But as a Masterfile it does work well. cheers
