  • 1.  Clipstore preview in Xpression Mos plugin(iNEWS)

    Posted 11-08-2023 19:25

    I´m not getting a preview of material from our Clipstore in the Xpression Mos plugin in iNEWS.

    I can see thumbnails but no previews on the Clips tab or when I drag the material to a gfx scene. 

    On my Xpression Tessera, I get a preview in Sequence mode.

    The Clipstore is running locally on my Xpression Tessera.

    I´m working in a Mos workflow with a Project Server.

    The default and preview frames are set to frame 20 in the default scene director, I´m not using Scene director for in and out animation.  This scene is only used to play background loops on our LED wall.

    You need to have a ClipStore installed on your XPression MOS Gateway and BlueBox Preview Engine system. The ClipStore on XPression Tessera then need to be configured to sync to the ClipStore on the XPression MOS Gateway. The the BlueBox Preview Engine needs to be configured to use at the ClipStore installed lcoally to it. 

    Right now you have configured the Preview Engine to look at the ClipStore on the Tessera Master - so it does see the Clip List and Thumbnails. But when the Preview Engine tries to decode/render a clip for the MOS Plugin Preview Window, it is looking at the same path on disk as the ClipStore database it is seeing the list for (from the Tessera Master). So its probably looking at D:/ClipStore/Storage - but that directory and files don't exist. 

    Once the BlueBox Preview Engine has its own synchronized ClipStore locally, it will be able to decode/render clips for the MOS plugins.

    So if I want to have another ClipStore running on my MOS Gateway I would need another license for that?

    No, the XPression BlueBox Preview Engine includes Datalinq and ClipStore. It does not need a license to connect to those workflow tools.
