  1. I have been working on a Watchout installation that as the same troubles described above. System: - New Rig with 6x 4k Outputs and 16gb Ram - 6x 4k HAP movies with 30 secs. When I first ran a show for testing the system it was just that one movie in free run and loop on the main timeline. 2 days later and the videos are completely out of sync... method 2 = Second approach was doing the loop trigger by cues... result 2 = black frame while looping. method 3 = Third approach was one task running 3 instances of the 30 secs movies without free run and looping with cross fade between them and at the end triggering a second task to preload a copy of this task and to run it. Basically "cross fadding" between the two task with preloads ... #$%@@$% result 3 = terrible frame dropping between the cross fade of the 30 secs video.... Free Run and Looping was a basic function that I ALWAYS USED and never with this outcomes... Did Watchout lost the simplest function of free running and looping a simple clip? Any one with troubles running 6x videos at 4k? What are the best approaches thanks
  2. Thank you for the video. The stand looks great and contents too. I'm crazy to put my hands into this all new world.
  3. Love the smell of Watchout 6 in the morning! It's with absolute joy that I read about the amazing new features of Watchout 6, 3D and Live editing. HO YEAH! I'm very excited about it. Due to work i was not able to be at ISE this year. I would like to know if its schedule any live feed of the demo from the Watchout stand or if it's going to be uploaded any content of the preview to the web. Either way I would like to ask to all of does that are at ISE to share their picture, videos and feedback to the rest of us that couldn't be there. Thank you all and great work Watchout team!. Sincerely, Bruno Dias
  4. Hello, I found the solution for this problem. After all the replys i start messing around with laptops to try to find the cause of this. I have tested new laptops with nvidia and amd graphic cards. The problem only occurs with Watchout Players. The Watchout Production runs with no problems. So,first i thought it would be some incompability related with Windows 8.1 and Directx 9. After googling and tested based on that i found no trouble with Directx 9 and Windows 8.1, but when i cross referenced what Jonas said about the error might be base on the Intel Integrated Graphics, it all started to make sense. The new graphic cards are based on a hibrid system to optimise the batery life: - AMD Enduro - ATI Optimus This as both of the brands say will work seamless as you operate with your laptop, switching between the Intel Integrated Graphics and your graphic card as you switch between programs. And this is our cause of the problem. Both AMD and ATI software doesnt recognizes Watchout Display as a high gpu program, so by default when you lauch the program it will run base on the Intel Integrated Graphics... To resolve this problem you have to go to the graphic card control panel and in the 3d options you have to force it to run with the graphic card that your laptop is equipped. In some versions you cant tell your graphic card to run "all" programs like this, so the best practice is to force it to run Watchout with the graphic card. You can achieve that in the same menu by browsing your hard drive for Watchout and selecting it. As far as i can tell, theres is no switch on or off for this function. I will update a couple of print screens guiding of the process on next monday. I Hope that this can help some of you in the future. One sugestion for this: - Can Dataton comunicate with Amd and Nvidia with this problem and ask then to insert Watchout into there list of programs that need their graphic card active as it happens with video games and other programs ?
  5. I have the laptop in transit. When it gets on the warehouse will test it again and give the computer spects. Im also planning on installing windows 7 in another partition to test the same hardware. Ill report as soon as possible
  6. I am having the same error. One off the display computers got faulty after the airplane transport and to replace it at last minute I bought a laptop to run a single display. Same error showing, cant work it arround. My live show is with na output down.... Any help? OS - Windows 8.1 WO - 5.5.1
  7. Thank you for that JFK. So, is there any way of controlling the volume in a cluster display system? Can it be triggered via TCP command or the only solution for this is through the production computer? Thanks in advance.
  8. Hello, I would like to known if its possible to input MIDI values directly into a cluster display? I am trying it with a Korg Nano Kontrol with no luck. It works as expected on the production computer but now I need it to work with a cluster display system and I it doesn't work and therefore my doubts. Thanks in advance
  9. What would be that work around? When the display is open and I try to update it throw the production, it will minimize and I get a error on the production software because the display isn't maximize.I am testing this with two 4.5 license keys.
  10. I am getting the same error with WO4.3 and Korg Nano Kontrol. There is no information about this error on the support documentation. Does anyone know what is this about and how to solve it? Thanks
