  1. ah, ok. That makes sense. Thx.
  2. 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.
  3. 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...
  4. 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€
  5. why don‘t you just leave them on?
  6. Not knowing what you need exactly... I could imagine that looking into texturing a 3d object might do something for you.
  7. I experienced the black „flash“ when looping an aux-timeline as well (as stated and whined about in several posts) There are two work arounds. One is the (mentioned before) underlying still for the moment of jumping to the beginning. BUT, I found it to only be working when that still is on the main-timeline. Which is a pain. And leads to the second, most reliable solution. I created timelines with the duration of the whole day and just repeated the content, instead of trying to loop, jump or anything automatic. Ridiculous, I know. But that is what I would do in your case.
  8. Well, just consider my original post as a kind of feature request. Cheers.
  9. Hi, the other day I could have used an easy way to make a show run as a loop for the next 1.5 months without the production software running. I know there are ways to do this with startup scripts etc... on a display machine which has to be made the „new master“. But I figured all this to be too complicated. At least for me not having done this yet. Why not configure all this from within the production software and export it to the specified display machine, just as if going online. Thanks in advance.
  10. The problem is that the only two workarounds are to either always have some timeline underneath covering up that „bug“ (cannot be a feature) or use „freerun“ for looping with aux-timelines.
  11. Hi, I did not mean transparency within the media itself. I got that when you mentioned that you tried other formats. I meant, that when you say „flashing black“, it could be that it actually would show what is beneath it for a fraction of time. That is what I experience with aux-timeline-loops.
  12. For testing .... You could try putting a colorbar or something very visible beneath the problematic png(tif, jpg) in your main timeline. To check if it goes black or transparent. Had the same issues when trying to loop in an aux timeline without freerun-loop.
  13. For me, real looping video or even one still (jpg, png, psd...) WITHOUT freerun has never worked. So, either a realllllly long timeline or freerun.
  14. maybe it is not Watchout but the LED Walls own system. Inwould try to feed it the exact same source from only one „player“ and check that.
  15. Freerun. For video and audio.
