  1. A shot in the dark - my upgrade method from WO 5 to WO6 would be to uninstall WO5 and QuickTime from production and display.Then reinstall 6 with no Quicktime I've delivered 3 shows on 6.4 in Windows 7 so far, one of which had an enormous amount of content all in HAP and HAP Q.
  2. This article has some decent information on rendering with chunks.I have followed the advice of no more chunks than cores with success. https://hap.video/using-hap.html
  3. I am saddened to hear this news.Thomas has been posting since I first joined the Watchout community many moons ago and I always admired his straightforward approach to explaining sometimes complex issues and his willingness to admit what he didn't know. His posts helped me a lot over the years. Thanks Thomas.
  4. I agree with Benoit- I have also had trouble using custom resolutions with framelock in S400 cards. I never managed to overcome it and my solution has been to go to standard resolutions
  5. Hi all - just found this great tool, AfterCodecs plugin, which allows HAP and many other encoding flavours from After Effects and Adobe Media Encoder, using ffmpeg.I have tried the trial version, and I like the fact I can encode HAP chunks in AME, and there are a plethora of user options. Just wanted to share this find with fellow users and ask if anyone else is using it?
  6. I'm over the moon to see folders in the task window. What a difference this will make for me. Thank you so much! Neil
  7. I would have done the same but the matrix switcher we are using is limited to 1920 x 1080 inputs so I had to go this way. Thanks for all your help. Neil
  8. Thanks Zack - you have really helped me out here. I was kinda stuck! and confused.... The LED team were using Hippo just to show me how they would lay it out. After your helpful suggestions we have arrived at the layout below. I now have 16 virtual displays, and everything seems to run fine, so I'm in the dark as to what is considered a large amount of virtual displays. Thanks for your help.I really appreciate it! Neil
  9. Hi again.So I have hit a brick wall with this. My led contact wants something that looks like this but I can't imagine how I would do this without creating 110 virtual displays.The image shows 3 led drops on the left mapped to one output on the right. Can anyone advise how they would do this? Thanks in advance
  10. Thanks Zack. This is how I have decided to set up my stage. I have 3 x 1920 x 1080 outputs and 9 virtual displays.I have arranged the virtual displays in such a way as to give me the outputs as shown. It makes sense to me. Can anyone confirm if this is the correct way to do this?Thanks in advance. Neil
  11. Hi all - until now I have been able to use virtual displays within a 1920 x 1080 output constraint to deal with multiple led screens. My way of approcahing this would be to arrange the virtual displays horizontally until I exceed the horizontal pixel constraint of 1920. Then I would add another output. Until now I was able to fit the vertical dimensions within 1080. I now have a project where I have 9 led drops ranging from 384 x 960 px, to 384 x 1344. So I can no longer arrange them as 9 virtual displays left to right on 1920 x 1080 outputs. I could make each led panel a separ
  12. Jim is spot on ( as usual) Have seen this when Aux Timelines are triggered without a stop command first. When using a midi controller I put a pause cue before the video cue. To trigger the video from the midi controller it is 1 cue to move to the pause cue, then a 2nd to run to the video.
  13. Hi Don - the Codemeter program is the dongle software that you need to run Watchout. The reason you are getting this message I believe is de to your UAC settings. Try this: From the Start menu, Select Control Panel Navigate to System and Security > Action Center From the left pane, Select Change User Account Control settings Drag the scroll button to Never notify Click on OK to save your settings You might also want to go through the Windows 7 Tweak list helpfully provided by Dataton which covers this and much more. Hope this helps Neil http://forum.dataton.com/index.php?app=cor
  14. First thing you need to establish is can you see a clear image using the capture card but not using Watchout? Using Datapath and Blackmagic cards this is my first port of call when fault finding. What card are you using for capture?
  15. Having reread your post I second Jim's suggestion .This looks more like a processor demand issue, not an encoding one. Good luck!
