Hi All, I'm new to WATCHOUT (making the transition from Isadora) and use it for theatre. I'm curious what is the best way to fade in and out of a looping video at any point in the loop? The best solution I was able to come up with involves two auxiliary timelines - one with a solid black layer that fades in and out when triggered and one underneath it with the looping video. Is there a more elegant/efficient way than this? Thanks! Charlie
I work a lot with loop-videobackgrounds for company presentations. This time I use a projection 5760 x 1080 pix (3x HD). And I rendered the loop content in 3 HD mpeg-2 video with 25 fps (30sec long). I used a control cue with "jump to". It runs very smoothly but always when it loops, it stutters! Also when the video starts at play. So what I did is, I made a composition and added the 3 mpegs. Then I created a task and imported the composition (Time at 2 sec on the timeline) with a opacity fade in. Added a pause-marker and set the composition on "free running" and "looping". This solved the looping problem perfectly. Only when I start the task it stutters several times during the first 1 - 2 seconds. Hopefully anyone can tell me how to solve this problem. Thanx in advance. Erik System Specs: Graphics: AMD Radeon HD6900 MB: ASUS-P8P67-EVO-B3 CPU: Core i7 2600 BOX 3.40 SSD: 120GB SATA3 intel 510 series DDR3: 8GB OEM :Win 7 SP1 Home Prem 32b
