I am the Senior AV Broadcast Technology Analyst at Loyalist College where I primarily design, install and maintain campus AV and Broadcast systems and equipment. I also do some teaching for Camera, VFX and Audio/Video editing there as well and I love my job. My background includes Broadcast Television, Video Production and Technical work. My passions include digital art and drawing, VFX, VR, and sometimes 3D modeling. I have also recently taken up an interest in programming and development on the RaspberryPi and Arduino as I expand my interests into robotics.
I am one of those rare people that find themselves most comfortable in the chaotic limbo between the creative and the technical with the burden of proving one can indeed be both. Which is probably why I am loving VUO! :)
OK, thanks for the reminder on how events are behaving... I overlooked that. Because of the number of I/O ports I need for the composition the Mac Pro is my only solution however my Manager managed to secure me an older MacBook Pro that works with my older QC project, I'm updating that on the side now as my backup plan for this event. I'm hoping to get the VUO comp working though if I can still but I'm getting lock ups and haven't been able to identify fuller were they are coming from yet. It seems to be related to the live camera feed and the video file playback nodes being in the same composition because individually they are running fine.
What if it packaged them in some kind of file wrapper that had the composition and the folder with the graphics and other resources inside kind of like how apps have "Show package contents". then is would remain as one file that can easily be moved and shared and could be edited if required.
OK, I see what happened there then. However per your advice I remapped the icons to the external drive location where the files will eventually reside which resolved that issue however now the lower buttons all disappeared... is this somehow related too?
Double Click custom user node (Loyalist )ConvocationGUIto open it in the editor
Play Composition (Images show up now?!? Why?)
Have you found a workaround?:
Not entirely and I'm not sure this issue is confined to the custom user nodes it's just that I can repeat it regularly there.
I reported this already in the Discussions Forum but after further testing today I am quite certain this is a bug.
This project I'm working on is critical to our June 8&9 Convocation Ceremonies. I've been working on this project for quite some time, all my testing was working beautifully, only recently as I started putting the pieces of this project together are things falling apart. Previous years I've done this project using QC however the 2011 MacBook Pro laptop I had used for that is no longer stable and I don't have an alternative Mac with Lion installed that has the proper I/O ports for running the old composition so I have to make VUO work! Please help!
Yes it is a 2013 MacPro with D500 GPU. I am currently testing the 1.2.6 build 4 Beta for this project to test the new XML nodes (I left that part out of my attachment as it appears to be working very well and others wouldn't be able to load those nodes yet). I'm not sure if this build contains the AMD fixes or not... Jaymie (@jstrecker)???
If there is a fix I'm really hoping it arrives very soon.
