Hello Out There I am an artist filmmaker and am working on a 6 channel video installation. I will use six different QT videos 1920x 1080 Apple pro res HQ no sound all same size and time. Is it possible with array sync and client to use each mac mini with two video outputs ( out put 1- hdmi , output 2 minidisplay port to hdmi) thanks for the help R
hello! i'm new here, looks like a great community!
i am planning to try the following:
a new mac pro to run a single video across 6 samsung displays each at 1080p. the single video is rendered at 11520x1080.
it looks like i'll have no problem doing a 6-monitor extended display using the mini-display outs, BUT i'm unsure what the best quality/ most stable software for running the video at full screen across all monitors is.
looking into arraysync. anyone have any tips for this?
I'm doing some testing with trial version of ArraySync to make sure that this will work for my company. However, I am having issues with getting video to play on the external screen which is attached to my Retina MBP.
Thank you Turboladdade and Mark for your suggestions. I did check the System Preferences suggestion and there was nothing listed there to start up iTunes. I do have Applecare and am planning to take it to a Apple Store close-by. Thanking you for your input. Bernard
If you've chopped them up into five separate videos they should play fine. Is there anyway you can send a pic or video of what's happening exactly? Because I don't really understand what you're saying.
Also, are you using any video splitters like Matrox Triple Head? Because those probably won't work with ArraySync.
OK so this topic can be closed now. I had to buy a new "Apple Magic Mouse" and the new one works. Sometimes things do get broken. I did everything possible to avoid spending money, insulting reinstall of Mac OS from Recovery partition, installing upgrades and changing settings and following all other suggestions I could find, it didn't work. Even after installing (upgrading) memory from 4 GB to 16GB and upgrading OS to Mavericks then installing all the updates, this one problem persisted. I had a haunch it was a hardware problem because it worked partially. But by trying to solve this one I did solve a lot of other problems on the way, like my printer which wasn't printing. I had to fix a wifi connection at home, upgraded the memory and OS, reinstalled another computer and solved problems there (laptop, Windows) so, all in all, something positive came out of it...I cleared all my IT-related issues. During this whole process, a lot of new countless issues came up and I solved them all so I learned a lot, but in reality, it is never ending learning process.
OK, this topic can be closed now. Here are steps I've done to help other users: Reinstalled the printer software. 1) download the latest printer software (including drivers) from Epson website (only found it on UK website, NL website didn't have it, I am in the Netherlands). 2) choose between wireless or via usb cable - in my case usb cable; plug it in and switch on the printer 3) removed the printer using "-" button (uninstall it temporary) 4) add the same printer using "+" button - it will show on the bottom, the least of available printers nearby 5) test print a page - it works
That's pretty unusual, none of those reasons would explain why only a specific segment of your video would play poorly but not the rest. What program are you using to encode your video? Is there any chance you can upload it somewhere like Dropbox or something so I can have a look?
I'm saying you cannot use AIC on Windows at all. Apple never ported this proprietary production codec to Windows. QuickTime for Windows simply doesn't understand how to play them.
Can you describe what setup you're trying to achieve? If you're playing just one video, an H.264-encoded QuickTime or MP4 video should play fine. I'm not sure I understand what you're trying to setup that isn't working.
Hi Robin, 1) MacKeeper is not recommended by Mac community, there is no point installing or keeping it. I checked all files manually and there is almost no "trash" so to speak, Mac OS must take care of this on its own probably. 2) The problem is: MEMORY. Standard iMac comes with 4GB memory and unfortunately it is not enough. I made enquiry about my model (mid-2011) and I can have 16GB of memory. Bought 4x4 memory cards and going to replace it on my own. I got instruction from Apple site and it looks very easy so non-expert can do that. But first check your model to see if you can add memory by yourself (some models only by certified customer service which costs money), then how much memory makes sense for your model (for example I can have 32GB max but my model is only going to use 16GB so anything above it is a waste of money). Problem solved…
If you need any help I can send you the links to websites where to get more information. I learned something and I am willing to pass my knowledge now to others.
That's questionable, 8 different movies is asking a lot of any computer. I couldn't make any guarantee on your system if it would work right or not. Be sure to use Apple Intermediate Codec if you try it out.
Has any of you guys remember or where to find the old "welcome to macintosh old system os 9 start up extension" it was an old system extension that would say Welcome to Macintosh when you booted up, it only worked up to 10.4
