  2. You're welcome Jim. That's another way to do it. I ususally just place a locate to time or cue point somewhere in the middle of the cue, jumpnig back and pausing at either a time within the cue or the cue to jump to. Have been hitting the space bar too often when I wanted to run an aux timeline and instead ran the main timeline 😉.
  3. Thanks for the help Rainer. No task window folders in this show, will be sure to avoid them. While i do place loopback cues, i also trim the timeline duration to march the cue duration.
  4. No, Medialon Manager was always able to control auxiliary timelines. What might have changed here is auxiliary timelines in folders which in fact might not work since Dataton changed the API. I would also place the remapping (virtual screens) in the main timeline and make sure that I have a loop back command somewhere inside the cue to make sure that the timeline can't be moved out of the relevant part by accident. The main timeline can't be killed. It is always on.
  5. I am being told second hand that Medialon can not run or kill WATCHOUT auxiliary timelines in cluster mode. Can that be true? I am hoping something is ‘lost in the translation’. It is very important that auxiliary timeline control is available. The main timeline is used exclusively for re-mapping since it can not be killed. Much safer to keep the main timeline closed and show programming placed in auxiliary timelines so that there is little chance the mapping is accidentally disturbed.

  7. Hi Nikolai, I realise this topic is a little old but I’d be interested in knowing how you got on with this setup (3D objects moving on a set together with the accuracy of the 3D mapping within watchout). I’ve got something similar in the near future and I’m still not sure if watchout is best for the job or not
  8. Hi guys, I have a problem with 4K capture. I have a WO6.5 I7 server, 16Gb DDR5, W10 LTSB, 512 SSDM2, WX7100. I use a magewell Procapute 4Kplus USB grabber. I capture a 4K60Hz signal, with the magewell capturer viewfinder it works perfectly, on the other hand when capturing it through WO setting the capture to the Digital 2060p 60hz video standard the image slows down. On the other hand, if I set the capture to WO at 1080p, inputting the same 4K60 signal, the image becomes much smoother. Does anyone know how to fix it? A greeting and thanks in advance.

  10. Hi Guys! I was in charge of all the special developments with BlackTrax technologies (They created the RTTrPM protocol and that's why Watchout integrated it), and specifically for broadcast applications like AR/VR. I've worked for multiple years on FreeD and RTTrPM so maybe I can help you on some aspects of your needs! What would you like to achieve by the end? I assume you would need a small soft converting from FreeD to RTTrPM? Cheers, Quentin.
  11. The ability to snap the position of the corner points of a virtual display outputs to other corner points of other virtual displays, and the ability to select more than one corner point at one time, both of the same virtual display and of another so it stays in a relative position - not unlike Madmapper and Resolume
  12. I'd have to second this for a very helpful addition to Watchout - 3d mapping projectors being able to route through to a virtual display which then could be composed onto a more complex composition - a fx4 layout etc. I have a relatively old 4x projector show that tours quite a lot, that we try to keep the touring kit to a minimum- we hope to update it onto Watchout for the future. Only one output requires, or would benefit, from a 3d mapping output. The show has run via a datapath programmed on Avolites Ai in the past and before that Catalyst, I'm struggling to work out the best way to m

  14. 300 meters of SDI cable? That is three times longer than the average maximum of 100 meters that SDI supports, depending on the resolution of the SDI signal. I'm surprised it even works over that distance. Have you tried a 100 meter cable? I have had the distorted audio signal too with BM micro convertor too btw.
  15. Thanks for letting us know that you're at least reading this thread. What would be really helpful is some kind of high-level roadmap for Watchout, specifically in relation to the possibility of implementing major features like Notch, which would directly affect current purchasing decisions. Your competition seem to be much more open with their plans, which inspires confidence and leads to sales.
  16. HI everyone! Thank you so much for taking the time and write to us here, I just wanted to make sure you know that we are reading this thread and of course taking your thoughts and ideas into consideration when developing WATCHOUT and WATCHPAX further. It's very helpful 🙏🏻 I would also like to push for our Help Center, where you can add feature requests as well: https://dataton.atlassian.net/servicedesk/customer/portals Best, Magnus Broeders Development Manager
  17. Yes, this would be awesome! I'm doing most of my content in realtime these days and not rendering huge videos at all. Notch has totally revolutionized my production pipeline by setting me free from having to render looping videos and trying to find ways to transition fluidly from one scene to another. Realtime content production is a big game changer in our industry.
  18. Make your normal settings on Watchout. Try step by step, reducing the output of the source computer from 60 hertz on the computer. After capturing the signal, go back to the hertz setting you want. The important thing is that Black Magic cards catch the signal once, then they will not forget it.
  19. Which version of WATCHOUT are you using? Are you using a ready built system from WATCHOUT (WATCHMAX, WATCHPAX), a system built by your Premium Partner or a self-designed server?
  20. The DataPath utility uses the proprietary DataPath driver, WATCHOUT uses the WDM driver. Since they are using different drivers that conclusion is invalid.
  21. If you haven't changed anything in your system and WATCHOUT used to play the two signals ok before, I would rather guess that something in your server or in the incoming signal flow incl. the cables has changed or got broken.
  22. I had trouble getting my Blackmagic Decklink SDI 4k card working. It worked fine in Blackmagic Express, but nothing showed up in WO. I finally got it working by changing 'Digital Video Standard' to 'Custom Video' when double clicking on the input in the media window. Good luck
  23. Hi, I have been using Datapath VisionLC-HD2 (2 x HDMI input) for over a year now, and it has been working fine. We use our WO server for a tv show where we get 2 SDI inputs which we convert tot HDMI. Since last week the signal output is shaky. I found out that when I pull out one of the two inputs (doesn't matter which one) the other one is becomes stable. If I look directly to the inputs using the Datapath software these inputs are ok, so I guess it is WO that can't cope with the 2 HDMI signals at the same time (all of a sudden). That is ofcourse strange because it worked untill l
  24. Hi all, I am Facing a very critical error, sometimes When i try to go online,the the loading screen appers on my production computer but does not load and if i cancel and try to go online again also it won’t load,I have to do turn off the display pc omegle xender and then have to go online then it works. it happens sometimes,please can anyone tel me what is the issue?
  25. I'm also going to add the request to integrate Notch blocks directly. Making content in Notch is simply revolutionary after years of rendering. Having the ability to make use of Notch's realtime parameters directly within the media server is the way forward of content creation for live performance.
  26. Which driver are you using for the Radeon Pro cards??? Did you run your show in WATCHOUT 5 on your new system or was it on a different system? Did you try to update the old system to WATCHOUT 6.6.1 or 6.6.2? When HAP shows green videos, it is usually an indication that you have more codec packs on your computer than just those installed with WATCHOUT. Could that be the case? Is VLC running on the new computer? Did you install any HAP codec on your new computer?
  27. Playing 4x mp4, but the files and output is only 1024x768 We have tried two different AMD Radeon Pro cards, Can't remember the model numbers right now. ok, we'll try playing the audio on the production computer. Really annoying that there is no errors in the logs when it actually fails.
  28. If it works when plying sound from the production computer, it gives you some indication where to search deeper. How many MP4 files are you playing on one server and on how many outputs? Codecs? Codec settings? Which graphic card are you using and which driver?
