I've had a few installations in the past few months using WatchPax40 and custom-built machines that required master volume control. In WatchOut control protocol, there doesn't exist yet any command that allow you to adjust the system master volume level. The closest you get to achieve volume adjustment is to define an input variable and attach that input to the video's or audio's volume tweening function (or through DMX). And then, you'll get to adjust the level using "setInput" command. In a show that contain dozens of video or audio files, tweening the same variable to the input can be a bit of an extra work. I've written a utility that I called Remote App for my projects — it allows amongst other things, adjustment to the system wide volume level (1 to 100%) and mute/unmute through network command in a simple to understand protocol. What the Remote App does is listen to TCP port 7000 and wait for volume commands. Example commands below: volume 60<CR> //set system volume to 60% volume ?<CR> //query system volume, the command will respond with volume=60 volume mute<CR> //mute system volume volume unmute<CR> //unmute system volume The download to the utility and guide are: https://omnigram.net/releases/RemoteApp_v202104.zip https://omnigram.net/releases/remote-app-guide.pdf At the moment, upon running, the utility will be in 10 mins demo mode. Happy to provide free permanent activation if anyone is interested. Here's the demo video of the utility in use. Best regards, Eddy Omnigram
I am trying to build a WATCHNET panel that controls the volume of a WATCHOUT show. I am using a previous installation I did early as my template for this project and have copied the input and parameter info. (See photos) I have set up a generic input called volume and a parameter on the audio file that should respond to that input. I checked my old file and it works as expected I try it on the new file and it does not respond. What I'm I missing? WATCHOUT 6.2.2 WATCHNET 1.4 I am trying to use
I'm doing a museum install and I have a very simple timeline with 6 videos and one audio track, The museum would like to control certain functions with a cell phone through WATCHNET software and one piece of media in particular they would like to control is the volume of the only audio file being played. I know I need a give the audio tween a formula, but I'm not sure what is a formula for controlling the volume. I also need to create a slider on the WATCHNET computer to connect the volume. I have been reading the documentation and I cant find anything solid to help me with wording on a parameter for volume. Can you help me please?
