Anyone used live feed in their Watchout - I'm setting up a system to bring the video output signal from another computer into my Watchout system. Right now I'm using Black Magic Intensity Pro 4K to capture the output signal, and I can see the captured feed in BM Media Express, but not in Watchout.


Under the "video in" menu, Watchout recognizes the BM Intensity as "BlackMagic WMD Capture," which I'm not sure why... I can't see other video device options that can be my capture card other than this though.


To double check my display computer can actually see the capture feed, I also test it with Touch Designer, and I can see the captured videos in Touch, although I need to set the "library" and "device" in Touch to the correct ones. So I'm guessing it's something in Watchout that needs to be set?


Many thanks!

I'm experiencing a similar issue. Haven't found a fix for it yet.

Often times with BMD capture cards, this comes down to a framerate thing. Try halfing the framrate(if you're at 5994, try 2997).
