Help with slices on projector + RESOLUME 7.0.3 BUG

Post by Metroplex » Mon Sep 30, 2019 15:59

I've got 2 projectors combined in one pticture with 2 slices. I made the separate circle screen on the foreground in the middle, on which I thought the other separate picture would be projected. So I made 2 more slices with circle masks. According to my plan while turning off the two lower slices, the image on the circle should remain on. When I turn the right lower slice - the upper slice on circle is still at place, but on the level side it turnes off. Here are screenshots of my outputs https://yadi.sk/d/hXnYTGBFEyhrNQ
I also made 2 front slices without masks, but with circle slices, but Resolume made the sphere picture, but the back slice turning off was correct in this case.

Also I had a bug yesterday, while placing mouse on the upper slice of right projector — the picture of slice turned white, when I moved the mouse from it — it turned the correct picture on again.

Sounds like you are trying to do the compositing in the Advanced output. It's not meant to do that.

Using a masking effect on the Composition, or using your masked slice in a slice transform effect on the composition would be a lot easier to achieve what you'd like to do.
For this, you'd disable the Slice 3 you have, (you only need one slice 3 ;)
then, enable Show Slices in the View menu,
and drop the slice from the slices panel to your composition, set the mode to masking.
Then you can simply disable and enable the slice transform effect when you want to mask the composition to the circle.
