Transport Controls?

Postby goblynn93 » 12 May 2015, 23:06

Hello
I am trying to build a few servers to replace a Mac-only software called PlayBack Pro.

The one thing that is tripping me up is transport control of clips.

I need to be able to fast-forward, or better yet jump to 30 seconds from the end of a clip.

I run live shows that require lots of rehearsals and one of the biggest things playback has to do is play the last 30 or 20 or 10 seconds of a video to practice the transition to a new section of the show.

Maybe its there and I am missing something...

Thanks
Brian

Do I understand you right? You are building a client with similar capabilities like PlayBack Pro, right? Then you can use the SEEK and LENGHT arguments to position in and outs. You can also jump to 30s before the end oc the clip by first querying the lenght of the clip and then seek to lenght - 30s.

Or do you try this with the official client?

I love the provided client!

Am I am not a programmer... so I am using the provided Client at this point.

I may need to write a custom client so I think I have a good learning curve ahead of me!

Thanks

This is a major feature missing, and the most important issue to fix in place to have a more user friendly interface to CasparCG.

Rumours has it that SVT works on this, and we can (maybe) expect this with the 2.1 release late summer/autumn.

Transport controls + Photoshop workflow = caspar to the people!

There's a few people where I work that keep asking about Photoshop workflow, would be great to see rather than me having everything bottle necking at my copy of Flash.

This is all excellent news!

Still going to attempt the learning curve and try to build my own interface but the new workflow will be very nice.

Thanks for the info!

Sorry to bring back such an old thread, but do you know if transport control is being implemented in 2.1?
