  1. As a power user of WATCHOUT software I am wondering when Dataton will be releasing a version 7 that has significant upgrades. It seems to me that the competition is not only gaining on WO but has surpassed it in many ways. Some communication from Dataton would be appreciated and I think much needed right now. I see the competition having webinars, instructional videos and engaging with it's users for feedback. Can you please communicate with us on the status of a serious upgrade? Thank you

    His experience and guidance helped me with many WO projects. I will miss him very much.
  3. I have been seeing two instances of WATCHPOINT running after boot up. I close the first one with IP address and version # (6.5 in this case)then another on appears with no IP address or version just the WATCHOUT logo. In earlier version this used to be caused by the program launching before the computer was fully operational. I would put a delay in the start up menu and this would solve the issue. In windows 10 the operation is done by using a Task schedule. Once I create one I can't change it to to have the task delay because I get an error "One or more of the specified arguments is invalid. This also keeps me from making this task run at the highest priority. Any thoughts on why this is happening. Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 64 bitOS I9 7900X 32 gig RAM WX 9100
  4. What kind of displays are you using? Image IMG_0700.HEIC doesn't look blurry it looks doubled. Are these projectors and are they aligned properly?
  5. Can you give more info on he OS and video driver you are using. Is the a server you built or one built by a Dataton dealer? Also, have you tried version in between, like 6.4.1?
  6. I terms of PowerPoint, the resolution of the output card is the deciding factor to whether you get a particular resolution. You can create content at 8k but if the video card on the PPT computer is only capable of a 4k output then the output would remain 4k and no higher. You would then be creating content that is beyond the capability of the video card and making the PPT computer work harder that it needs to because of the excess pixels. From my experience, even if you were able to attain an 8k output from PPT I doubt it will make much of a difference from an audience perspective, but that might depend on whether the screen is LED or projected. Hope this helps.
  7. Thanks for producing more advanced tutorials. Very helpful.
  8. In a show I was working on with a main and a backup both production laptops crashed several times doing different things like re-arranging a task or moving some media on the main timeline. I did not feel comfortable with this version.
  9. Just an FYI, you are using the program WATCHNET to schedule a WATCHOUT Cluster. It's hard to tell with so little information how the scheduler and scripts are set up. Somewhere in the start up sequence it looks like there is a line to run an Aux timeline which doesn't exist. Check the Scripts to see if there is a line for the Aux timeline. If you don't need it then remove it and make sure you have a line to start the main timeline at zero or whatever point you want it at. Can you take a image of the script being used at start up?
  10. Josef, I would imagined you’ve tested the machines Dataton is selling. Take for instance the WATCHMAX 6x4K. What are the limitations with virtual displays on that computer?
  11. Are you seeing any error messages when Watchout crashes? If yes, what do they read?
  12. I finally figured it out. The video that is playing along with the audio also had has audio embedded in it and was not tweened to zero. I was effecting the audio file but no the video files volume so it sounded like no difference was made by sliding the volume control. I knew it was something easy. Thanks for your help Rainier.
  13. I tried a the exact same formula on a different file for another WO installation and it worked fine. I can test if the formula works by playing the audio file on the producer computer and moving the input up and down. I’ll check the green F to see what it does and let you know. This file is the only one that I’ve tried that the settings don’t work. Maybe it’s a corrupt file. I’ll keep trying.
  14. I am trying to build a WATCHNET panel that controls the volume of a WATCHOUT show. I am using a previous installation I did early as my template for this project and have copied the input and parameter info. (See photos) I have set up a generic input called volume and a parameter on the audio file that should respond to that input. I checked my old file and it works as expected I try it on the new file and it does not respond. What I'm I missing? WATCHOUT 6.2.2 WATCHNET 1.4 I am trying to use
  15. Is the error coming from WATCHOUT? Is the laptop being used as the Producer or the display? Can you attach and image of the message you are getting? Keep the laptop clean of other programs (accept WATCHOUT) and follow the tweak list on all computers. The game you are trying to run could be the problem you are having.
