Re: Take Template

You could do triggers to a normal animation from the scene animation. THen make the transition times between the stages in the scene anmiation really short and you won't have director waiting for animations to complete. Obviously you should take care that your other animations work well when they di...

Re: Scene layers and Scene Datas

Hi Greg, I tried this first with a scene port as I remembered that would just work if you pressed the right buttons. Then tried to recreate this with a scene layer. The trick to access the data is to first click on the pencil mark on the scene layer (after you loaded the scene). Then in the content ...

Re: NDI 3.5

The NDI scan converter will just be a tool you can download. I bet that Ventuz is already doing the color conversion internally on the GPU. Also in theory you could probably obtain the Processing.NDI.Lib.x64.dll from the new v3.5 SDK (when it will be released after NAB) and update that to use with V...

Re: NDI Timecode

NewTek also added a whole bunch of timecode related stuff to their newly release v3 version of the API. So in general I'd say it should be possible

Re: parallele desktop for mac

For occasional editing of scenes Parallels works fine (if the scene is not too complex) but bootcamp will be better or just buy a decent windows laptop/desktop just for Ventuz :-)

Re: Runtime Error

I've seen this too on my development system. It had Hyper-V installed with a virtual network. After deleting this network as I wasn't actively using it, Ventuz was able to start again. Could very well be something that changed with special network stuff in a recent windows 10 update as I think I've ...

Re: Designer UI on High DPI screens

@Ventuz does the new .net framework 4.7 help with this? Saw a mention in one of the presentations from MS Build event that all winforms apps should enter the DPI scaling mode much better now. Using the manifest trick for now, but native support would probably be even better :-) https://blogs.msdn.mi...

Re: One Render machina to achieve 5 x 4K playout

Even if your machine would work and that would probably still be the case. Performance could be an issue and also Ventuz is limited to a single system render of 16k x 16k a wider image cannot be rendered by a single computer as far as I'm aware. Just try to build it in the configuration editor and y...

Re: audio in Director 4

Ventuz is creating two output pipes for you, one for preview and another for program. For Ventuz this is simply a copy of the same thing, another render engine running on two pipes, all scenes (with audio) have there audio being run twice if that is not what you would want the only thing I know is t...

Re: Movie Clip Buffer

My expectations of the behavior would be the same as Christian. The buffer is just filled with the number frames it needs next (if set to only forward buffer) or divide that between a backward buffer and a forward buffer. Maybe behavior could be different when loop flag is not set on the movie but n...
