Long time prodder of very basic CasparCG set-ups, first time poster - I believe some of the users here have met me… #waves
Has anyone tried using CCG as a test signal generator?
I find myself in need of video clips of a few minutes in length in all the framerates, all the resolutions and a lot of colour spaces. And… royalty free. I figured CasparCG would be great for this - create a show, then use a Screen Producer to stream it into a file - or, if that does not work, record it from the SDI output into a file recorder. Change frame-rate/colourspace/etc. and press play again
Let’s split this into the component (ha!) parts:
- colour bars such as
- a ticking clock
- some swirly, pleasant, graphics - moving at different speeds, with some text overlay
- and why not: moving zoneplates? Some real “codec killer” material?
I would be glad for any comments, advice, etc.
Seeing as I only ever get to play with Caspar intensely for a few days and then not for months, I am still essentially a newbie…
