Someone who can explain how to do when you need spliting a video file that will be on two or more screens to file becomes too heavy otherwise. Has understood that we should use something called Video Proxy. But have not really understood how I get the program to know how to split the movie. How does it know what is the left and right for example. Thanks in advance / Mathias
Hi Watchout friends, I'm pretty new with Watchout, trying to wrap my head around what it can and cannot do and how to use it in my setup. I've been browsing this forum a bit but couldn't find the complete answer to my question. Ok. I have a setup of 3 projectors(1920 x1080) on a 20 x 4 meter projection-screen. A resolution of 5060 x 1012(1080) using a 350 blend in my setup. Here fore I will use Watchout as a video playback server, background images and do the rest of the switching with a Vista X20. So Watchout server > X20 > Projectors. In my setup the X20 with fix the blending. I'm in contact now with the production company that will produce the background images. And they will produce a 5060 x 1080 video that they will pre-split into 3 .H264 files. Left, middle, right. Watchout will play that back using a video proxy. Since Watchout will not do any blending in this setup I'm wondering how to setup the outputs, in what resolution. If I'm going for 3x 1920 x 1080 then I will need to position the pre-split video files in a way so they match up. And since the video files are smaller then 1920 I think that's going to be hard. I might be overlooking something here or not doing the math in the right way.. So what's the best wat to do this? Thanks in advance.
