Hello, We are experiencing glitches in our system that may or may not be in Watchout - just trying to check all ends. I am using virtual displays in a 10 second composition that is looped for the duration of the show. In the past I have seen weird issues with looped compositions and I was wondering if anyone else has seen this as well? The show I am using this on has 4 display computers feeding into an LED wall. I used 3 virtual displays to span the wall. The glitch we are experiencing is a periodic "flash to black" of one of the rasters inside the virtual display. The virtual displays cover more than one raster so this leads me to believe that it is not in Watchout, however I am still curious about the effectiveness of looping a composition. Thanks all.
Just set up a new show for an 8 screen museum display. Part of it is a 20 second video for each of the monitors. Each video is on free run and loop. I'm testing it on our show displays, which are i7 quad core boxes and AMD Firepro 7000/7900. The museum is outfitted with 4 Watchpax units and a rack mount production pc from Showsage. Have not tested it there yet. The loop seems to play perfectly for well over an hour, maybe two hours. then it starts to slip - the video is not going from the last frame of the video to the first frame of the video - all the displays exhibit this. In addition, the videos get out of sync with each other, even on the same display computer. if I start the timeline over, when it gets to the loop, again, plays fine for an hour or so, then starts to get out of sync.
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
Is it possible to have a looping auxiliary timeline and from the main timeline ask it to fade out not just stop. When I did this the loop would just pop of and was a little disconcerting. I wasn't able to find a command to ask the AL to fade, just stop or pause. Anyone have an answer to this? Thanks David
