  1. But notice that the 'seconds' number is different between the timecode & timeline values. That shouln't happen when you say one reads in 1/100ths of a second, and the other reads in frames.
  2. Jonas, any thing I should be looking at? Phil Cane
  3. I understand that the timeline is notated in decimals (1:00:01.257 for example) and video is in frames per second, but how can the match be out by more than a second? The mismatch is not consistent from test to test, so I don't think I can slide items around on the timeline to fit a mechanical calculation error. I have manually set the timecode parameter to nondrop for testing. I had the same issues a few years ago with version 3.4 and a different set of computers, and ended up firing the cues manually. It seems to me that the timecode reader plugin works fine, but the core Watchout program is having trouble sampling the values from the plugin and tracking them. Thanks, Phil Cane
  4. I am testing the timecode chase function, and are seeing some results I was not expecting. I am using version 4.22. I am feeding non drop LTC into the production computer. When I use Dataton TC Tester utility, it tracks the source accurately. I can play back a TC segment, pause the source and the TC player and the TC tester utility match up. When I open a Watchout show, enable TC control and create a TC status window, the TC status window tracks accurately. However, the actual show timeline does not track accurately. When I stop the TC source deck, the values of the 'paused' timeline do not match the value of the TC status window. For example, if I pause the TC playback deck after 27 minutes, the difference is over 2 seconds. Is this a 29.97 vs 30 fps, or a drop/nondrop issue? I have the display framerate set at 60fps at this time. Thank you, Phil Cane
  5. In 4.2, do we still have the ability to turn off edge blending below a specified layer? I can't seem to find it in ver 4.2. Thanks, Phil Cane
