I've had a few installations in the past few months using WatchPax40 and custom-built machines that required master volume control. In WatchOut control protocol, there doesn't exist yet any command that allow you to adjust the system master volume level. The closest you get to achieve volume adjustment is to define an input variable and attach that input to the video's or audio's volume tweening function (or through DMX). And then, you'll get to adjust the level using "setInput" command. In a show that contain dozens of video or audio files, tweening the same variable to the input can be a bit of an extra work. I've written a utility that I called Remote App for my projects — it allows amongst other things, adjustment to the system wide volume level (1 to 100%) and mute/unmute through network command in a simple to understand protocol. What the Remote App does is listen to TCP port 7000 and wait for volume commands. Example commands below: volume 60<CR> //set system volume to 60% volume ?<CR> //query system volume, the command will respond with volume=60 volume mute<CR> //mute system volume volume unmute<CR> //unmute system volume The download to the utility and guide are: https://omnigram.net/releases/RemoteApp_v2021.06.zip https://omnigram.net/releases/remote-app-guide.pdf At the moment, upon running, the utility will be in 10 mins demo mode. Happy to provide free permanent activation if anyone is interested. Here's the demo video of the utility in use. Best regards, Eddy Omnigram
Ready "6.1.6" "WATCHPOINT" "Windows" true authenticate 1 setInput "CVol" 1 1000 Error 7 0 "Unrecognized command: setInput" I'm trying to control my setup as follows. Other commands like gotoControlCue and run work fine, but I can't get this one to work. Any clues? Thanks in advance. PS: I know we are some versions behind but updating is not an option since this is controlled by the IT department.
Is there any plan to implement the Open Sound Control protocol in the near future to 1) control Watchout and 2) control other systems from Watchout? Also, is there a user manual available yet for WO6? All I can seem to find is the one for WO5.2
Hello, I like to write a small tool that gives me two information: 1) Timecode of a specific task in my watchout project 2) How long will a current task or clip will played (time to end) Is it possible to read out those values by network? Thanks, Meldur
