  1. I'm trying to understand the reasoning behind framerate choices, mostly because I receive so many different ones such as 30, 29.97, 25 and the one that is the most perplexing, 23.98. I know WO can play this different frame rates and filmmakers like the idea that they are matching the frame rate and stutter of old-school film (celluloid) and they will get the same look if played back at 23.98 Is it better to film at 23.98 and output playback files (HAP-Q) for WO at 30fps? Is there any real advantage to achieving a film look or is this a myth handed around? Will there be any sync issues i
  2. This is a multi-part question: I occasionally get tearing on stills in Watchout. It doesn't seem to be consistent, and I can't quite nail down why. It's almost always big stills...8k, 9k wide. I've tried different file formats and nothing seems to be the silver bullet. So the first part of the question is, what part of the computer does the heavy lifting of fading a still? Is that the GPU or CPU? And would additional system RAM or video ram help that? The second and related question is using sync cards between machines. We have traditionally used AMD cards with the s400 sync module
  3. Hi all, Using the new Datapath VisionSC-SDI4 with the signals that a TV broadcasters are giving us, we have some problems. I sent a ticket to Datapath with this information and I'm waiting for a reply. Specification of the PC - including processor speed PC Player for Dataton Watchout – i7-5930K; Motherboard X99; 16 GB RAM; SSD Samsung 128GB for SO; SSD Samsung 256GB in Raid0 ; FireproW7100 4Gb Graphics Card Operating System Windows 7 Pro 64 bits Application Software Dataton Watchout v6.1.5 but we check the same problem using the Vision Window from Datapath software (at full
  4. Hello I am having trouble getting 4 MP4 video files to sync on a very large LED wall. The files are built at 50 fps because some of the content in side the content is european. We have Show Sage Built watch rack computers with the s400 sync card installed and working. All 4 files are coming off 1 machine with 4 heads. We are Emulating a 1920 by 1200 EDID at 50 hz. Watchout is connected to a Light ware 8X8 DVI router than fed DVI to 4 Image pros2 then fed to the LED Brain We have tried setting watchout to 75 fps and also custom at 50fps with no luck. I feel it is the H264

  6. Hi People, New to this forum, i've lotsa useful info so far but i can' seem to find much on the firepro and sync card. I'm looking at building 2 systems with 4 output to achieve 8 output for driving an led wall setup. It'll be pretty much a 15360 x 860 image size. I'm looking at fitting the system with a ATI AMD Firepro W7000 with S400 sync card. My question is: 1) Does the sync card work at the hardware level to sync up the 2 display machines or do i need some extra bit of software or driver to activate the sync? 2) Is the physical setup as simple as connecting a net
  7. Hi all, I need a little help in figuring out how to simultaneously run my primary production machine and simultaneously trigger backup production machines. We run 2 x Watchout server racks each consisting of two display and two production machines. So that in one rack you will have your primary production & display with a backup display and production. In total there are 4 x production and 4 x display pieces. Occasionally on our much bigger events I would need to run both racks due to the number of output required. How do I sync the multiple production pc either by inse
  8. Working on putting out some fires, wondering if anyone's got experience capturing audio from the Intensity Pro HDMI capture cards. I don't have a way to test myself right now, just trying to orchestrate a backup and can't find info on this. Thanks!
  9. Hi It's my first experience with Time Code I have a Production PC running WO5.x and 4 Display PC for video playout. Sound playback is provided by a MAC running ProTools. We are wondering to set up a second MAC running QLabs that provide MSC commands (GO) to WO and to ProTools, so we have the same START. Video will be set in free running and each video has a longest tail, so some seconds before the end of each song, WO's main timeline is in pause and ready to receive MSC "GO" and start the next video. But how can I be sure that during the 5 minutes of each song music and video will always
