Hi Garner, Does the attached image mean we can upgrade to 10.5 as well? (we're using Studio SCE). James. ------------------------------ James Hope Technical Director 3ABN Australia Inc Australia ------------------------------

Another option is to have your credits pages under a scene group (layout tab) rather than a group in the sequencer. That way it can be dragged into the sequencer as a single item and then that can be exported as a single video. That's how I always do my credit rolls, but the reason I do isn't related ...

The pause is in the initial SD. After the pause, there's a trigger for the out animation SD. This is the same SD that is used by TL for taking the scene offline. So pressing Take offline just plays that animation, just like pressing Take or Take Next would. They're triggering the same SD. No need for ...

I use pauses in Xpression and then from the Carbonite I just take the scene twice with the same CC that has no hold in it (like Garrett was saying). The second take just unpauses. I also use Transition Logic. So the scene director with the pause just plays the out scene director that TL would normally ...

Les' option 2 definitely works well. We did this for years on our Carbonite. It only had two chroma keyers, so we needed to do it this way. We set up customs that recalled the appropriate memories that would then go into Preview. If you want to reserve your MiniMEs for other things, I definitely recommend ...

Cheaper than Teranex is the UpDownCross HD Converter also from Blackmagic Design. It uses Teranex technology and doesn't do all the fancies of the Teranex, but will do what you want. I also believe they have an openGear version (that's if you have an openGear frame). ------------------------------ ...

Yes, it is 64-bit on Intel/AMD (hence x86), not ARM. The x86 is a term used to refer to Intel and AMD, being that Intel chip codes ended with "x86", i.e. 286, 386, 486, etc. The new MacBook Pros are ARM-based, and Parallels can only run the ARM version of Windows 11, meaning that any x86 (32-bit or ...

Hi Helen, I always do my credit rolls in Layout because of this very reason. I create a scene group, and add scenes for each credit. Then I drag the scene group into my sequencer and run it from there. True, it has to be updated in layout, but I've found over the past 10 years of doing this that it's ...

Also, XPression is x86 and would be translated to ARM64. This wouldn't help the issue either, not even considering the massive performance hit that would result (I also have an M1 Pro MBP, and never even considered it for XPression for those reasons). ------------------------------ James Hope Technical ...

This may not be your issue, but maybe the framebuffer is set wrong for the scene? Just check that it's the same one that everything else is going to, and not some disconnected framebuffer such as a RossLinq one that's not set up properly (i.e. pointing to a switcher that isn't running or wrong IP address). ...

Hi Tristan, It moves around because the font is proportional, where the different characters are different widths (1 is narrower than all the others, for instance). The easiest way to fix it is to turn on fixed-width in the font settings. Without it in front of me, I can't remember exactly where it ...

Hi Pat, Could you look at the performance monitor up the top of the XPression window when you take the scene online and see if it maxes out? What sort of items do you have in the scene? James. ------------------------------ James Hope Technical Director 3ABN Australia Inc Australia ...

Hi Pat, When you said it says "Preparing" and goes bold, does "Preparing" ever change to "Online" (or "Paused" if you have a pause in the scene director)? If not, it could be that the scene is taking too many resources to go online. If it does change, then try cueing it first, not long before you ...

Hi Taylor, It seems no one has an answer for this one. I haven't got any fonts like that on our XPression machine to see if you can do this, but I'd be very surprised if you could. Maybe with my reply, we may get someone to respond who knows? I'd be very interested to know if this can be done too. ...

If you're animating the same elements in each then you're better off waiting, because you'll see those elements jump into the second animation. Also, you need to make sure that the first animation controller is only as long as it needs to be to contain the last key frame, because the second animation ...
