I have an Incoder which is running two different Datalinq Servers, both on different ports. One Datalinq is handling local data sources, while the other is handling online data sources. This way, if the online sources are not available, the local data still gets updated. If you put them on the same ...

I guess that could be an option, but then I have to do the work twice; first create the lines and then create the masks... It would be easier if the bug wasn't there ;p ------------------------------ Kenneth Buck Senior Graphics Developer Bold Graphics Belgium ------------------------------

Thanks for your reply Roman, But did you animate the Lines.Percentage? And did you then try to export the scene as a video? Because I have tried this on two different pc's on two different versions and both versions showed me the same error... Unfortunately, using a mask is not an option since there ...

I've been creating an animation in XPression using the Lines object to show some course information. But when I finished the animation and I wanted to export it, I got an "EAccessViolation"-error, followed by a crash of the XPression. I've tried multiple different approaches; trying to export in another ...

Thanks for the clarification Simon, it all makes more sense now ;-) And your solution would be the best indeed. ------------------------------ Kenneth Buck Senior Graphics Developer Bold Graphics Belgium ------------------------------

I actually had this issue yesterday as well with the XPression of a client and I used to have it a lot as well. But this only happens on older versions. The client where I worked yesterday was using V7. But I think this problem was solved in a later version. Basically it happens when you leave XPression ...

Hi Carlos, For me it's a bit unclear if your timing is using the actual time (like clock-time) or a timer (that starts at 0). For the latter, when you start a timer at the start of the game and you want to subtract a time from your timer, the solution of Simon would work well. However, if you are using ...

Hello all, Just in case somebody stumbles upon this while searching for a solution for the same issue as I had. I have found a workaround which allows me to use the dynamic url functionality with local files. I have activated the IIS-server and added both the main and the backup folders ...

Hi Peter, In short, it's not possible to copy a custom bezier spline on multiple objects. But I have to add some explanation to this. So whenever you create a custom bezier spline, all the values are being hardcoded. So when you copy the spline onto a different object, it will copy the ...

Hi James, First of all, you can not do this on the Datalinq'ed textfield directly. Whenever the value changes it will be reflected instantly in the textfield so fading out the old text and fading in the new text is not possible on the textfield itself. However, you can achieve this using ...

Hi Justus, Indeed, the Project Server is used especially for distributing projects across multiple servers. So if you have a design team which creates the projects, the can publish the project to the project server. Whenever a user needs a specific project, he can look for a project on the project ...

Hi Troy, There is a way to do this using Visual Logic but it might seem a bit weird. However I use this system quite often in a variety of applications. Like you mentioned in your original question, the input selector only uses numerical values. So to solve your issue, we need to "convert" ...

Hi, I've noticed in another thread ( https://support.rossvideo.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/360040129332-Dashboard-and-CasparCG ) that appearantly it's possible to send custom data with RossTalk. So is it possible to send custom data to XPression as well using RossTalk? So imagine I want ...

Hi Simon, That seemed the most logic for me as well so I did try that but that didn't do anything. I could rotate it to change it to Cue Action but pressing the knob didn't do anything. #Carbonite

Hello all, Eventhough I know XPression inside-out, I'm not very familiar with the Carbonite Black, which is why I'm turning to this Community. I need to put two Custon Controls on the panel of a Carbonite Black. One Custom Control will be used to trigger a scene with a fixed Take ID in XPression ...

Hi Garrett, For the first part of your question I used Visual Logic to solve it. Selecting which size to use for a quad is quite simple with an Input Selector. The only difficulty is that you need to specify whether it's option 1, 2 or 3. Now to do that I'm using some conditions to determine ...

Hi Ryan, Trying to center a text using Visual Logic can be quite tedious, I know. As you have said in your question, the 0-position on the Y-axis of the textobject is on the baseline of the first line of the text which is making it difficult to handle. Luckily the BoundingBox-properties offer ...

Hi Sunil, Do you mean just a moving background that plays all the time? Or something which needs to be started at some point and then play in loop? The first option is the easiest to answer. In your XPression-project you need to add the video to the position you need, and in the material settings, ...

Hi Mona, I agree with Garrett, the easiest solution would be to use Visual Logic. But there are a few ways to achieve what you are looking for. OPTION 1: POSITIONING TWO TEXTFIELDS The first option as you have said yourself is by using two text-objects which you can have datalinq'ed. ...

Hi Mang, Could you clarify what you mean by animating the sorting process? The Visual Logic Sort Order-block will only sort the values and it will do this as soon as the scene goes on air. If the values should change while the scene is already on air, it will instantly change the sort order. ...
