Virtual Output not playing the scene

  • 1.  Virtual Output not playing the scene

    Hello, I hope someone can help and I'm in the right community or someone can point me to where I can address this issue. When playing any scene on a Virtual Output from Xpression Studio it comes up as blank like in the picture bellow. Can someone help and tell me what I'm missing. Thank you.

    Is this XPression Designer edition?  What type of hardware / gpu are you running this on?  Do you get any notifications when starting XPression about failing to initialize the GPU or rendering system?

    Check in the Edit->Preferences->Hardware menu and make sure it is showing your Nvidia gpu correctly selected.

    Hi Brian, thanks for your quick reply we are using a Quadro M4000, and have no notifications whatsoever at launch. Could it be possible that a Monitor needs to be attached to the unit ? We use this machine for testing purpose and we only access it remotely, I don't think we have tried the Virtual Output before so I'm not sure that it even worked before. Thanks.

    Yes that would be it.  You do need a monitor attached; or one of those dongles that emulates a monitor's EDID.

    Ok thank you, very much, I will try that once I get access to the machine and come back with a confirmation.
