  1. hm... you should definitely check out https://www.dataton.com/ and watch the video using the „discover“-button. Why Watchout? Because it is very widespread, an industry-standard (not the only one). It is basically kind of easy to understand and operate. An advantage is that one can take over or share someone elses „programming“ without having to dive into complex and hidden-at-first-sight structures, usually. One can of course make it more complex with virtual screens, remoting, tracking, dynamic external files etc. And it is kind of cost-effective. No, I do not work for Dataton.
  2. I would go with NDI anytime. Check out OBS, which supports NDI as well. Use it as a Mixer for sources before going into Watchout. REALLY great. And free, on top of it all.
  3. I googled it for you. Found an italian video showing it.
  4. This must be that long existing „bug“ or feature in aux-timelines. Be it a tiny jpg or heavy ProRes... does not matter, you will get the „black flash“, which is actually a „transparency flash“ at the loop point. Maybe Dataton can fix it some day. Or describe a working method for it in the manual. Until then, use the main timeline or do not loop but put your media end to end in a long enough aux-timeline. That is what I have been doing for years now.
  5. I was referring to the Bitfocus Companion „system“, which lets you assign keys that you can then press either on the Streamdeck-hardware or in a browser on any device, like iPad.
  6. You might want to look at the Streamdeck Companion software.
  7. Hi, This is coming up a lot this week. I recommend trying vMix instead of Newtek Scan Converter. I would not expect frame accuracy form NDI.
  8. Hello, In my experience, REAL error-free looping between cues in an AUX timeline is not possible (be it stills or video, whatever codec or format). there will always be a short flash to „transparent“, revealing the layer beneath it. Often showing black. So, either use looping with „free-run“ or make the aux timeline so long and repeat the clip as long as needed. Like several hoursor so... Otherwise use the main-timeline for looping a clip/stills between cues. So sad. But still loving the system...
  9. ... make sure you do not let Powerpoint compress your images to a lower resolution once saving the presentation.

  11. Hi, thanks for your advice, but I can‘t get the DMX to work. The input does not react to the output. I did not try the „setInput“-commands yet.
  12. Hi, The other day I tried something I knew it most probably wouldnt work. I created an „output“ tweening track on an Aux-timeline, that O wanted to „route“ to duck the audio-volume of another (Main timeline). Of course it did not work, the values wer not correct. But maybe, if Dataton programmed something alike, we could play that Timeline and it would influence the volume (or other values) of another Timeline. This would allow voiceovers or something, where nobody would need to react at the audiomixer... or so...
  13. Hi, I would try deinstalling Quicktime, not needed for mp4. And probably not run Watchout from within the user „Administrator“ and not put material into that user’s folders. Just my 2€
  14. why don‘t you just leave them on?
