  1. I also use this ALL THE TIME and find it easier to drag and drop the newer files onto a copy of the original setup clip on the timeline then going thru the motions. +1 for this feature! Another +1!! I find compostions useless without having some reference of the overall stage. I design my look in the main timeline, then cut out the needed pieces and paste them into a composition.
  2. BOY this sounds cumbersome! The find/replace option should have a way to look through all timelines and compositions. Kevin Lawson
  3. I agree with Walter Alex, fantastic design! Was it you who designed it? Or, are you technical for playback? What's your role? Just curious... Kevin Lawson
  4. ALso, if you leave the show in "LIVE" mode, then when you load new media in, it will push to all displays in case they have to show it. If we're talking simple graphics, and not 30 Gig video files, this can be done live... with "caveat emptor" in mind I've done this a few times, with both large graphics, and small videos, without interrupting a show. I wouldn't load in the new media to the media pool in the middle of playing back a large video or something, but... it's possible.
  5. I have also found the slight offset of PAUSE or PLAY commands from a media cue helpful. If it's close enough to the media, WO will still pre-load the media clip, without triggering it. I especially find this useful on triggering very widescreen videos within it's own Aux timeline with a clean start.
  6. OK... so a VERY custom world of film... You're right... there are FAR fewer staging events, or museum setups then film production... Just sayin'...
  7. How about we NEVER see this frame rate? This is OLD, BAD Marketing crap to sell cameras that didn't have the memory to record actual 60 fps video. Didn't Peter Jackson, (amongst others,) prove that HFR is highly preferable to low frame rate? 25 fps, OK to deal with old PAL resolutions. (NO other reason, please!) 30 fps, again... OK to deal with NTSC resolutions. (Again. Old, deceased, ancient... NOT needed really.) All the variants of HD 59.97 and the like. (Again... just to be compatible with old systems... there's no REAL reason today for this to even exist!) So. 50 FPS for European
  8. I totally agree on the Folder in the Tasks idea!! With Copy/Paste, how about it pastes to the next line. Simple and clear. No guess work. Thank you! Kevin Lawson
  9. I would think that having a check built in to the pasting of a Task object so that it takes "Current tasks in file" and adds 1 to that to create new task number. I know... I don't program, so I think everything is "easy"... Kevin Lawson
  10. I REALLY like the ability to add other Tasks to the Status window. And PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE an ability to set them to countdown to end of Task! PLEASE?? Thanks.
  11. I like the "unique ID" idea, since having a changeable name (as a descriptor field,) and an unseen ID that keeps the links would be a real help in complex setups!
  12. Hello mindopera. I don't see how the schematic you offered could have been a challenge for any competent operator. Simple and to the point. the fact that he didn't read it and respond ahead of time that you needed to do things differently, or come to a mid-point for each, that's not right. I can understand an operator wanting to have control over the blend regions himself, especially if he's doing any PIPing, or other effects over your output, he would definitely need control. (I think that a Spyder or an E2 has better blending control then you get in WO, with most projectors having ev
