Select Add Array
Then select Number Of Displays for the array (2 or more)
Then select the resolution of the array Displays (1400x1050, 1920x1080, etc)

You do know that you can copy displays from one show and paste them into another, right?

I second that.

I would like the ability to have the production machine on a different subnet than the display cluster. Currently I can load shows across subnets, but not run them.

This feature is available for auxiliary timelines. Or perhaps you're referring to something else?

This should be doable, assuming a router that can be configured to allow "administratively scoped multicasts" to go through.

the possibility to select many point in geometry and translate, scale and rotate them and maybe the possibility to create multi layer geometry and mask like madmapper

I love features request topic discussions! One of my top requests is to have the ability to apply X and Y rotation to an anchor point separate of the vanishing point. In other words... not have to subscribe to the global 3D/vanishing point values for a given X or Y rotation. I understand this does not work for stereoscopy display, but for those of us who are using X and Y rotation 99.99% of the time for simple "2.5D" work, it would be nice to have the same X/Y features one has in After Effects.

Just to be clear, if I wanted to horizontally align multiple cues of a playing card, rotating on it's Y axis, I could never achieve that effect in the current version of WO. Unless I am missing something...

In addition to default fades for cues, it would be super if switching conditions on and off, fades corresponding layers in / out

An auto-stitch feature would be awesome. Maybe using a laser that provides a grid pattern and a camera digitizer.

A keyboard shortcut for the Formula button. Select multiple items on a layer and apply the same formula.

I just want one and only feature
Built-in remote desktop, because vnc is very slow on win7, on xp it's was pretty good but on win 7 it's horrible, so if dataton will write some small their own remote desktop it will be awesome

It will solve 99% of my problems instead of buying not cheap capture cards.

VNC is the only way to go, software-wise.

And the speed is what it is, approx. 10-15 fps.

Remote desktop solutions is not much faster.

Capture cards is the only way to achieve full framerate.

Thanks Jonas , but it's possible

I was able to write my own remote control software in vb.net and my framerate in 1280x1024 resolution was about 25 frames with 10-15 % load on regular dual core processor

So basically in c++ it's can be achieved with faster framerate

But it's only a request, maybe in near feature you will consider adding built-in remote desktop feature

As far as I know, Microsoft's Remote Desktop protocol is proprietary. But perhaps you have more up-to-date information here? If so, please let me know where to find those details.

I didn't talked about Microsoft remote desktop, I talked about dataton own remote desktop like vnc, radmin, dameware or my favorite VMware remote desktop which working amazingly fast with 1920x1080 resolution, I can see hd movies on local network with VMware remote desktop

Here's a few features I'd really appreciate.

The possibility of reversing a cue, much like hitting the 0 to run forwards, it would be great to be able to hit a key to run a transition backwards as presenters often like to refer back to their previous points.

As we are able to name the cues with the "F" keys and jump to them by simply hitting hem, I'd really appreciate a few more quick, on the fly, hot keys for moving to certain states within my pre-programmed timeline. Possibly by holding down control whilst hitting that key, it can automatically transition from the current cue to the new one, or something to that effect.

A default fade in and out time of 1 or 2 seconds for the uppermost layer would be a great time saver, as well as an auto fit to full screen scale feature, probably only the height (y axis) would work better.

I'd also be highly grateful for a slice tool, I know we can get around it with in times and cutting off the ends, but to be able to slice a video in two on the timeline, cut out the unwanted section and pull the remainder up would be very useful for those last minute requests.

Adding to that, possibly a slow mo, or sped up option, allowing us to play a file at half or double speed.

One last helpful request would be a shape generator much like to the text editor, predominantly for key-ing and / or masking.

Many thanks for the amazing software though, it really makes us shine brightly. Always a pleasure and a sense of security running a show through Watchout.

A countdown clock that can be set to one or multiple cues would be very, very helpful.
