Re: Changing composite modes with midi in Arena6

Thanks Zoltan,
So does each composite mode have its own numeric value that can be targeted by a midi shortcut?
Does it take a bit of guesswork to find the midi value specific to each composite mode?

Changing composite modes with midi in Arena6

I am working with Arena 6 and having difficulty changing my workflow from Arena 5. It used to be easy to swap between two chosen comppsite modes for any layer with the click of a single midi button. Now in Arena 6 I have no control of this, I have a midi value assigned to the composite layer button,...

Re: Optimising for an extended output with 4K content

All the content is a mix of HD and 4K. So can I import 4K video as my content and use a composition setting of 4K and then slice this up and output it to a different size (e.g. 7680x1080) ? Is that correct ? I had always beleived that my imported video had to fit within the output display resolution...

Optimising for an extended output with 4K content

I have a set that requires an output of 7680 X 1080, some of the video content has been provided to me by the organisers to map to the stage and is a resolution of 3840 X 2160 /4K. The content will require a lot of slicing to fit the various LED screens. What do you think would be best - To rearrang...

Extended Resolutions

I have a question about resolutions this has always confused me, and maybe someone can clear this up for me once and for all.. If for example I use a 1920 X 1080 video and output it mirrored 4 times across a display of 7680 X 1080, does it take the same processing power as if I was playing 4 layers ...

Re: output to FX4 / dual monitors + what signals?

Thanks for the suggestions folks, the HDBaseT 2.0 definitely looks the way to go, I will see what I can find although I am living in Brazil at the moment and high end technology is always a limiting factor. Ideas are developing and now the organiser would like a secondary space outside with projecte...

output to FX4 / dual monitors + what signals?

For the past XX years I have been in the lucky position of working via a technical rider, contacting event production teams who know what they are doing in advance and making sure everything is set to go, for when myself and the artist I work with arrive for line checks. Time to step up my game.. my...

Re: Random clip player

Thanks, removing the feedback makes a lot of sense. I will work it out and see what I can make happen in processing. & thanks to t13swift too, that layer router option is a great workaround.

Re: Random clip player

Thanks, Processing looks the way to go. I am trying with my amateurish coding skills, not sure about the N part to make the layer number increment/random.. can you help? import oscP5.*; import netP5.*; OscP5 oscP5; NetAddress myRemoteLocation; void setup() { size(400,400); // start oscP5, telling it...

Re: Random clip player

What I have is an old games console button its hacked to give a mouse click.
I used to use it with a keystroke generator app working in Flash, It is just the random part of the process I can get my head around, is randomly jumping to a different clip with the press of a same button possible in Arena?
