  1. Super! Thanks a lot all! I will test out these settings somewhere this week.
  2. That helped a lot JFK and Neil! Thanks for that. Was indeed looking for the"turn off softblending" option. Things got a bit mixed up in the brain I guess since WO is not doing any blending, still uses the 3x 1920 x1080 output but shows a video that is smaller than that. I thought: how do I line them up?! Quick other question. I've been reading a lot on this forum about the "max resolution" of a single video file in WO. Spoke to a local video tech here in Stockholm yesterday and he said that a 5060 x 1080 should not be any problem to play as a single file(instead of pre-splitting) if you use just one server and use Quicktime Animation instead of H264. Any pro's and cons to this? Thanks a lot!
  3. Hi Watchout friends, I'm pretty new with Watchout, trying to wrap my head around what it can and cannot do and how to use it in my setup. I've been browsing this forum a bit but couldn't find the complete answer to my question. Ok. I have a setup of 3 projectors(1920 x1080) on a 20 x 4 meter projection-screen. A resolution of 5060 x 1012(1080) using a 350 blend in my setup. Here fore I will use Watchout as a video playback server, background images and do the rest of the switching with a Vista X20. So Watchout server > X20 > Projectors. In my setup the X20 with fix the blending. I'm in contact now with the production company that will produce the background images. And they will produce a 5060 x 1080 video that they will pre-split into 3 .H264 files. Left, middle, right. Watchout will play that back using a video proxy. Since Watchout will not do any blending in this setup I'm wondering how to setup the outputs, in what resolution. If I'm going for 3x 1920 x 1080 then I will need to position the pre-split video files in a way so they match up. And since the video files are smaller then 1920 I think that's going to be hard. I might be overlooking something here or not doing the math in the right way.. So what's the best wat to do this? Thanks in advance.
