  1. Interesting response..... Unfortunately relying on the generally limited projectors capabilities isn't the solution for this gig it's too complex. Neither is the question based on a budgetary issues or concerns, but I appreciate the heads up. Obviously Watchout wasn't built for this type of setup in mind,
  2. HI, Could you let me know - Is it actually possible at all to do geometry correction and blending within Watchout for four separate 1920x1080 in one display(3840x2160) output via a FX4? Thanks
  3. I’ve been batching out a lot HapQ content from After effects, Premiere and Media encoder over the last year using Aftercodecs plugin and it’s been really solid. The only issue I’ve seen is if I attempt to replace the video files from within watchout using the browse option, it create a nasty yellowing. Bringing in video files freshly then replacing them on the timeline sorts this out.
  4. Hi, Due to the restrictions over the last few months I've had a set-up where I am predominantly working on a show remotely via VNC giving we access to the Production and Display Machine. I've a camera on stage and this is generally working out OK and as planned. The only frustrating element is due to the elements of the set on stage I am unable to see the updating status bar on the onstage outputs when I am updating/transferring new content. It's leaving me clueless to any sense of how long is left for the transfer. Is there a way of knowing the status of data/file transfers from the
  5. Of course! That’s for the reply, it’s really appreciated
  6. Hi, Is there a way to fade a 3D objects opacity making it transparent as opposed to fading to black then snapping out at 1%?
  7. I'm in the process of bringing an old show into WO. The footage is all rendered in ProRes. After finally getting it to run on the display software it was noticable that the blacks were not full black, I checked the original footage in After effects which is all good - black is black. Subsequantly I've done a test transcoding and comparing the footage to HAP which fixes the problem within WO. It reminds me of the old issues with gamma shifts with ProRes with Quicktime as can be found on a multitude of forums for editers and content creators - is it the same quicktime issues causing this wit
  8. It would be great to have the same output options and tweaks for a virtual display as you do for a standard display output, i.e the masking and geometry correction. It would open a plethora of creative combinations and compositions
  9. Sure, as was the method with After Effects tens years ago as well as embeding the mapping and distortion into the artwork, it's nice to think we've moved on from there a little though.
  10. OK, I've done further tests on this and striped down the set-up to do it. It seems the screen print/capture works when a single display is attached but two or more and I'm unable to do it - I get the WO screens. Is this the same as other folk? Is this a bug?
  11. I thought that would be the case - I've got the images displayed with the mask but when I print the screen I get the following
  12. Again RBeddig thanks for the reply. Unfortunately the export video method seems impossible as the production computer is running on an HD monitor and the outputs of the display are 4k -I can't make the displays fully visible on the stage window to capture them - it's a shame this would be a good workaround. The capture card method I'll tinker with but I feel it's adding significantly more kit and workflow to the process which I feel should be relatively straight forward. Has anybody got a screenshot method of working with Watchout? A third party app that''l do the job?
  13. Hi, It seems like a newbie question to follow all this but I can't get a screen shot of the display computer whatever I try - I keep getting just a white screen or Watchout in a window, not what's being displayed - is there a knack to this?
