Automatic Rundown / simple Slideshow in the official Client


#1

Hi guys,

is there an better way in creating an automatic rundown without adding wait times to the “items to play” in the official client?

I need to play about 40 graphics in an rundown and don´t want to step manually :wink:

Thanks!

I don’t think so.

No, the client looks for timecode in order to use the auto-play. You could theoretically create a simple PHP / JavaScript Webpage and play it via the client, however. Tutorial here: http://www.javascriptkit.com/javatutors/externalphp2.shtml

there is a small little freeware caspar client that does exactly this. it can run parallel to the client.
Playout Xpress 1.41

It’s one off those missing things :wink:

one nifty trick i did earlier is to make a “OSC output-trigger” , trigger its self and add a delay too that so it’s pulsing.
i did something with using the same UID to trigger the item’s in a group and autostep too tackle this :wink:

quite a puzzle but it did work. not very user friendly though

i have to search if i got this playlist somewere in a archived project

Maurice my darling (:slight_smile:️), could you give me an hint on how to do it? I don‘t know ANYTHING about „Auto Step“…
I already thought about some QLab magic and do an Decklink Input routing, but that‘s not how I want to behave it. Triggering via OSC is a way, but could you tell me how this AutoStep thing could work?


#7

Didn‘t know Playout XPress could do it. I will give it a try :slight_smile:


#8

Trying to do what i did earlier but i can’t figure out how i did this LOL
