  1. Hi, Happy to Join all you experts on this forum. This is Snaido Davis. I am a little new to using Watchout. I would like to know about controlling a switcher controller (Barco Screenpro HD2 Controller) which is connected to a hub via CAT6 to which my watchout pcs are also connected. I have assigned the presets to say 6 buttons on my switcher controller. How do I call them or activate them from watchout? I presume that i should be adding a string output through TCP to the ip address of the switcher controller. Please advise me on the port number and the Data that I should pass to the switcher to activate my switcher preset. Thanks in advance for your help.

  4. Hi all, The National Museum of Science and Technology (Tekniska Museet) in Stockholm, Sweden, has just opened a new exhibition showcasing the 100 most important innovations in history, as rated by Swedish voters.

  7. Mpeg settings

    Hi I'm pretty new to working with watchout and this question has probably been asked before but I don't seem to find the right answer here... I'm doing a 13224x500 animation, pre-splited from AE, rendered out as QT (animation) then my plan is to encode the QT into Mpeg2 using Adobe Media Encoder. My question is; what is the best settings for Mpeg2 in this case? And is QT-animation the best format to render out from AE considering time/quality for the end result? I'm on a mac if that make any difference... Thanks in advance /// Daniel
