Hi, we are producing a show on Watchout version 4 which will be saved and transfered to Version 5

What process would work well for maintaining geometry and file charastics properly?

 

I've found during my first attempt images are blurred

Could it be because I don't have my KEY yet (in the mail)

 

many Thanks

Rob

From what you describe, it sounds like you are referring to images in the

WATCHOUT Production (watchmaker) Preview Window.

 

I suspect you also experienced error messages upon opening the file in v5,

regarding missing media files.

 

Did you consolidate your v4 show in v4 prior to transferring it to v5?

This corrects all media file links for safe transfer.

Also, prior to consolidation, you must be able to open the file with no error messages.

Otherwise, the same errors will occur in v5.

 

Degraded preview of still images will occur

when the media file is not where it is supposed to be (aka not found),

as watchmaker is unable to cache the original image for preview,

and has dropped back to using the thumbnail from the .watch file.

Correct the broken media links and your preview quality will be restored.

 

BTW This is not about v4 to v5 upgrade of an existing show,

it is about safely moving a show file and all of its media items.

(the .wob file format available in the next release of WATCHOUT

will make this even easier)
