I try to record some live mixing but Arena 4.01 stops recording and starts writing the clip, mostly after 38 seconds of mixing. I have recorded much longer before but it's a strange problem, it shouldn't be no problem with my hardware (16Gb internal, 7200RPM discs with loads of space). All my clips use the DXV codec and I have no idea what could be wrong
I have had the same frustration. The Resolume recording tool was simply not meant for this. Now I just use Fraps for recording compositions live, and it records great at 1080p and for longer periods.
Recipe: - Set the Resolume output to your second monitor fullscreen (my resolution is 1080p) - Start Fraps - In Fraps, go to the "Movies" tab and select the desired framerate. Choose "full-size" if you want to record at 1080p. Also modify the sound capture settings if you like. - Press F12 a few times to get rid of the frames-per-second counter - Press F9 to start recording! - Freak out in Resolume - Press F9 when you are done.
Note that Fraps doesn't compress the video, so you will get a huge avi file, around 1-2 gigabyte per minute recorded. It should open in any converter or video editor.
I record the video to an SSD to make sure it's all fast. I haven't recorded very long performances, just 5 minutes at a time. But I haven't had a problem doing this. Audio and video sync is great!
Fraps is Windows only unfortunately. If you are on OS X, you might want to try Snapz which is sorta like Fraps but maybe not as fast.
I heard on VJ forums also about Fraps so I'm going to try that because the recording in Resolume definitely doesn't do what I want it to do, I tried to record to SD card instead my 2nd HD but it's not smooth and blobby so Fraps should do it I hope! I'll let you know when tried!
