watchout7 autostart


Recommended Posts

How do I do watchout7 autostart?
For watchout6, I entered the cmd script command line through the watchout point, but I don't know what to do with watchout7.

Also, can't watchout7 open production save files directly?
watchout7 When I open a saved file by registering it in the schedule, it does not open.

In WATCHOUT 7, you have to...

a) define a runner (display computer) in your setup to be the active DIRECTOR. E.g., by selecting it in the drop down menu on the top right of PRODUCER or by defining this in the device window.

b) define which timeline should start automatically after booting the display server by selecting "Auto Run" in the timeline properties.

c) save, restart the display server and close the production computer or at least PRODUCER.

The display server should now start with your selected timeline.

Thank you for your reply, RBedding.
I ran it as you said and it worked very well.

I have one more question.

In the case of watchout version 6, after the display boots, the production server runs with a delay of 3-5 minutes according to the schedule, and online may run automatically.
In the watchout7 version, after rebooting the display, I want the production server to open in standby mode with a delay of 3-5 minutes according to the schedule and execute the file.

I have a question because this method seems to be different from the watchout6 version.

thank you RBedding.


((The attachment is how watchout6 registered the production file on the schedule and executed it.  Is there another way to watchout7?))

In WATCHOUT 6, you have to select the little checkbox to go online. It doesn't necessarily start any timeline.

In WATCHOUT 7, you define which timeline(s) start automatically once the server is ready.

If you need to start your program automatically at a certain minute, I think it would be best to use some simple control system to send a trigger to start the timeline when it is the right time.

I just tested with Bitfocus Companion, which is installed on my production computer. It should even work without connecting an Elgato Streamdeck - what we often use to control WATCHOUT with in live situations.

WATCHOUT 6에서 온라인에 접속하려면 작은 체크박스를 선택해야 합니다. 반드시 타임라인이 시작되는 것은 아닙니다.

WATCHOUT 7에서는 서버가 준비되면 자동으로 시작되는 타임라인을 정의합니다.

특정 분에 프로그램을 자동으로 시작해야 하는 경우 간단한 제어 시스템을 사용하여 적절한 시간에 타임라인을 시작하도록 트리거를 보내는 것이 가장 좋을 것이라고 생각합니다.

방금 내 프로덕션 컴퓨터에 설치된 Bitfocus Companion을 사용하여 테스트했습니다. 라이브 상황에서 WATCHOUT을 제어하는 데 자주 사용하는 Elgato Streamdeck을 연결하지 않고도 작동해야 합니다.

RBeddig thank you for your reply.

I understand what you said. However, what I am curious about is that I registered the WATCHOUT7 PRODUCTION executable file in the schedule and made it run 1 minute later.
The executable file that appears 1 minute after the computer is turned on shows offline icons like an attached file and there is no change.
Should the watchout6 version and watchout7 method be different?

thank you RBeddig
