  1. ProRes 422HQ has been working good for me on Show Sage machines, encoded with Adobe Media Encoder. --D
  2. Sorry, don't mean to turn this thread into a network design discussion, but I'd like to add a couple of points: a) we do not run shows from remote subnets; in this scenario we use shared production resources to push shows to remote clusters, which requires the displays be defined with IP addresses instead of names. The remote clusters are each on their own subnet. This setup has been working well for us for over 8 years. b) UDP is a fully-routable protocol, and is not "typically" restricted to a single subnet (unless it's a broadcast packet, in which case that is true). Both uni-c
  3. Please do not remove the ability to use IP address... We occasionally have Production machines on different subnets from the Display Cluster, and computer names don't work in this scenaio. Thanks, --D
  4. To expand on what jfk was suggesting: 1) (same as above) 2) (same as above) 3) Instead of the Data Visualizer computer setting a variable, have it directly start a task. "run LiveDataViz" 4) In the LiveDataViz task, transition to the live feed, then pause and cue the main timeline. 5) At the End of the LiveDataViz task, play the main timeline and transition back, then kill the task. This could also be a triggered cue from your Data Viz machine, which would allow flexibility in the duration the Data Viz is on screen. 6) At the point of the data viz on the main tim
  5. Actually, in this case, the backslash indicates a decimal value, not hex... it's decimal 62 (Hex 3E), so $62V:1,C:11,G:9,B:1,S:1,F:500$35 would not work. I suspect that ">" and "#" are reserved characters in the D3, which is why they're encoded as decimal. --D
  6. I haven't used either the D3 or the Butlers, but if I had to guess, I would say the first and last bits are encoded decimal values. Try changing this: \62V:1,C:11,G:9,B:1,S:1,F:500\35 To this: >V:1,C:11,G:9,B:1,S:1,F:500# --D
  7. I see in the v5.5 release notes the setIP command to set the Watchpax IP address, but how do I set the subnet mask and gateway? Thanks, --D
  8. I have a couple of requests: 1) a "reverse" consolidate function. Currently the consolidate function copies all media in use into another folder. I would like to *move* all *unused* files to another folder, leaving the existing show in place. 2) be able to customize the colors for the user interface... the white timeline can be bright in a dark theater, even when the monitor is cranked down. 3) would it be possible to get a true "save as" command instead (or in addition to) the the "save copy as" function? Thanks, --D
  9. I would like the ability to have the production machine on a different subnet than the display cluster. Currently I can load shows across subnets, but not run them. --D
