I use a tricaster for live switching. When I play video from the tricaster VCR it plays back rough ( it stutters and skips frames) Does anyone have any suggestions for correcting this?
As well, is their a way to get the tricaster to recognize alpha channel video , and overlay video over the live feeds for special grfx?
I use Tricaster Pro as well, and don't have a problem with the VCR playback. You may want to contact NewTek. I also was wondering the same thing about the video, because I would like to create animated lower thirds for production, instead of adding them in post.
Thanks for the response. I never received an email on it. I Defragged the HD on the tricaster and that took care of the playback stuttering. I don't know of anyway to use animated lwer thirds in the tricaster. I have tried using the key on a green screen video and the key wipes out the whole image, not just the green area. I don't know why. Have you had any problems with latency. The image i put to screen always seems to be about 20 frames behind the live action. Is their anyway to decrease this?
