My feeling about these types of things is that it sounds like a corporate media server feature that would be hard to upkeep on a piece of software that is focused at VJ's. Heck we can't even get CITP because of the video sorting system. We all love our niche features(believe me i want what your laying down) but I personally try to get the philosophy a developer is pushing and use it when the job fits that vision.
On the flip side i've used touch designer, osc, teamviewer and some fancy file management apps to sync up multiple machines on a network. When you get it going it actually runs super smooth.
That's also the way Watchout works. The master is called the production computer and the slaves are called the display computers. The production computer cannot be used for displays so the smallest footprint for watchout would be a 2 computer setup which makes it hard to implement on the fly.Meptik wrote:Could also be interesting to run a master system and rhen slave systems that are just outputs, to help cut back on processing overhead (much like Pandora's Box does).
What playback/program features do you think you'd need to run in sync on the machines?Meptik wrote:I think it would be awesome if there was a way that Arena could manage "nodes" of itself to allow for larger scaling of projects.
