CasparCG with Vmix NDI

config

#1

Hi all,

I wonder if anyone has experienced this before.

I’m currently looking into linking up a Caspar client to our vmix unit via NDI.
I’ve successfully completed this with 3 of our units running caspar and Vmix following these steps.
https://www.vmix.com/knowledgebase/article.aspx/119/setting-up-casparcg-with-ndi-to-send-the-output-to-vmix

We have another 2 units however which vmix takes the NDI signal in but doesn’t give the transparency in the graphics required to over lay a camera signal like the other 3 units.
Each of the units are running different graphics cards but I wouldn’t have thought that would stop the NDI giving transparency when Vmix takes in the NDI signal.

Does anyone have any thoughts what could be causing that?

Thanks,
Seth

  1. Server 2.07 not working.
    But 2.1 beta 2 works well.

  2. Turn off cleartype in window font setting


#3

Thankyou for getting back to me.

I will reinstall with 2.1 beta.
Could you give more information as to how you access the font settings?

Hi ManuelGomezo, I had the same problems in casparCG with NDI. I followed the instructions but it did not work:
https://www.vmix.com/knowledgebase/article.aspx/119/setting-up-casparcg-with-ndi-to-send-the-output-to-vmix

So after a long time, I found a way to solve this problem…

I copied the “Processing.AirSend.x64”, “Processing.AirSend.x86” files directly to the root folder of CasparCG.
