Hi all, I am preparing to commence programming Watchout for projection in an upcoming musical, this system is going to be triggered by MIDI from the LX console. For this show, we have performers on-stage who will also appear in content we project; for each of the 4 characters we have multiple video clip versions to show each performer (e.g. Recording of the clip with each performer /understudy that plays the role). I am interested to know if anyone else has any experience with managing shows which require clips to be swapped out (preferably without a production computer), if this can be triggered via MIDI/Artnet/DMX that would be advantageous. Our current ideas are: - Have each actor on their own layer (containing a composite) which we set to active/standby depending on who is performing. We want to avoid this as there will be approximately 16 actors in total, so it would become extremely messy. - Have a single layer and have the operator swap out which composite is sitting in the layer depending on who is performing. - Have a auxilary timeline for each actor (will require associated content to also be in each timeline) and trigger those timelines separately from normal main timeline playback. These are just a few options I've come up with so far but I thought I'd throw it out there to see if anyone had experience with this kind of task. Open to any and all suggestions.
I am working on a project where one of the elements will be live content created in Syphon. I am trying to figure out the best way to stream that content in to Watchout. Due to system constraints, we can't using live capture cards in the computers. It would appear that the "Network Video" object is the way to accomplish this. I have no experience incorporating this, so I'm looking for any advice I can get. With some preliminary research using The Google, it would seem that VLC is capable of acting as a server for an RTP stream. The question is how to send the Syphon output to VLC. A second question would be are there other streaming protocols that Watchout can access, or does it need to be RTP? Thanks, steve
Hi, I just wanted to share some of my latest BMD Decklink issues, in the hope to get some feedback from some (worried) users. Does someone know, if the newest driver version 10.5.2 for the BMD Decklink Video Capture Cards (SDI Duo/Quad) works with WO? Currently, we have installed version 10.1.1 and 10.3.7 as these work okay, as far as BMD things work... I discovered, when I updating the driver from 10.1.1 to 10.3.7 (to capture a GoPro4, what's not possible with 10.1.1) on a display PC wit Decklink Quad SDI, that older WO shows, with Live Cameras in it, created with the older driver didn't work anymore. The camera signals came into the card, but WO was not able to show them. I downgraded to 10.1.1 and it wored again. So, does does the WO show save, which BMD Decklink driver was used when creating the show? And does it help re-installing Watchout after I updated the Decklink driver+firmware? The goal is, to be able to run all old shows with most stable decklink driver...if something like this exists. An other strange thing is, that with version 10.3.7, Watchout Display is only able to show live video, when "Decklink Video Capture" is selected. (cntrl+W, then Live Input Devices) On 10.1.1 we used to run the "WDM capture", as recommended. Also, it is not possible, to run a show with Live Video, which was created with a Display-PC where the WMD driver was selected on an other PC where Decklink Video driver is selected. Watchout Display even crashes, when you try to go online on a Live Input in the timeline. So I guess WO loses the connection to the Live Input Card, once the Driver is different from the original. Am I right with this assumption?
