I can not see your video because of restrictions on the network where I work. Would the Card Dance effect be what you want?
If not, and if nobody else replies, I will try to remember to look at this when I get home.

Those aren't monitors, they're digital signs. Digital sign companies should have delivery specifications you can use.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------


Michael, just to give you a word picture, this is video of a rectangular archway, presumably the entry point of something called the Digital Signage Expo. A group of 19 16x9 sign components compose the arch.

On either side we see the components aligned horizontally & stacked vertically, 4 units high.

Across the top of the arch, the components are rotated 90 degrees so they're aligned vertically. The top is 11 units wide.

The entire arch is motion graphics animation, colored shapes, animated geometric shapes & text over a white background. I'd imagine it loops. The effect looks a lot like a video wall, with the edge of the display units forming a narrow black border around each display unit.

So the delivery specs have a LOT to say about progressing with any animation. Is each component run off an individual playback device, requiring separate but synced animations? Are all 19 components of the sign run off one master playback device? And what's the resolution of these components? What is the frame rate?

If you can tell, you're a lot better at this than I am.

When I look at the clip on its actual YouTube page, I read the following notation: "Brightsign Networked Digital Sigange Media Players are the Brains behind this syncronized video 'arch'."

So I guess the folks at Brightsign would be a good first stop.

I have very little experience dealing with multiple video screens synced to each other, but Walter Soyka has a lot of experience with it. This seems like something that should be posted over in the regular After Effects forum.

Basically, you need seperate video files for each screen. The easiest way I can think to create them is to make one giant comp with your content and then make a smaller comp for each screen that contains the larger comp. That way you can adjust one comp for the content and all the screen versions will update.

Again, that's if we're asuming that he's asking for a way to sync up 10 different screens.

If he's just asking for a way to use After Effects to put video on screens that have already been filmed, then we should suggest that he use Corner Pin to put his videos in place. If the shot is moving, Mocha or AE's Motion Tracker should do the trick.

Are you splitting this into 10 monitors for a staging company that will be displaying the video? I have had to do that before and the first step is to call the staging company and ask them "What do you need me to deliver"?

If the original was for Brightsign players, production was done on something else, like After Effects, also maybe Digital Fusion, or Dataton Watchout or AvStumpfl Wings Platinum, the latter two being specialist multidisplay software.

For file splitting, which Brightsign players require, Wings Platinum has in-built output options to output to individual displays either as .mov, .avi, wmv or mpeg2 formats. BrightAuthor, a free software from Brightsign, would then be used to author the necessary files into SD/SDHC Flash cards for the various Brightsign players, and sync them all via Ethernet link for playback with the first player being the Master from which the others would take their 'cue' from -

If you only have After Effects, the splits can be chosen through Make Movie > Render Settings where you can crop parts of the whole composition to the various multiple files for each Brightsign player to handle.

In the example you showed, the whole comp is likely to be a rectangular area which includes the hollow under the 'arch'. On output to the various files, just do not output the parts where the hollow is. Obviously, the comp has to be a resolution where the individual parts match the total combined res of the plasma monitors being used.
