  1. I've been playing around with generating the shadow in GIMP and then importing the exported .png file as a new layer behind the videos. It does achieve what I want but perhaps there is a way to do this within Watchout? Andrew
  2. Hello, Are there any suggestions for the best way to add a drop shadow to a video layer or live input? I've had a search through the manual and forums and can only find reference to drop shadows on text. Thanks Andrew
  3. Hi JFK, Thanks for your reply and apologies for my late response, for some reason I've had a lot of trouble logging in to the forum. This is the route we took in the end. I routed the audio through the decklink card so that the sound was only live when the capture card was. It's worked out pretty well and our client is happy, which is what everyone wants! Andrew
  4. <moved by moderator> Hi, Could someone tell me if there is a way to bring in sound as well as live video into a display machine. We have Watchout running a video wall made up of Christie Microtiles and our client wants to use it to watch the world cup. We have a FreeviewHD tuner running into the machine via a BlackMagic Decklink, added the live video to the show, scaled it etc. but cant find any way of bringing the audio in. As a work around, I've looped out of the Decklink so when the card is activated audio goes straight to the Amp. This works fine apart from the video being behind the audio, which makes sense because of the processing delay. There seems to be no audio delay options in the Deckink either which I would expect as they would want to keep AV sync locked on the board. Any help you guys have would be great. Many Thanks Andrew
