I plugged in an additional camera, why does it not show up?

           <p>An important concept to understand is the difference between a device and a source. In BoinxTV, devices are physical objects like cameras, microphones, sound inputs, ... whereas sources are virtual entities that provide images or sound.  Devices are application wide and automatically appear in the device preferences as they become available, sources have to be created manually and separately for each document. One of the reasons is that a source can combine video and audio from two different devices. This enables you to use a dedicated microphone in combination with the video output of a FireWire camera to record a person.  <ul><li><b>BoinxTV Full Edition:</b> After you have plugged in a camera, select <em>Source > Add Camera Source</em> from the main menu. A new source, per default named "Camera 2" appears in the <em>Source Library</em> at the bottom of the document window. In the <em>Preview & Settings</em> area on the right select the video and/or sound device that source should use. You can also rename the source to match it's use, like the name of the person being filmed. Now you are ready to use that source in any number of layers. </li> <li><b>BoinxTV Home:</b>  With BoinxTV Home you can only have one video source for your production. Find this source in the <em>Source Library</em> at the bottom of the document window. In the <em>Preview & Settings</em> area on the right select the video and/or sound device that source should use. You can also rename the source to match it's use, like the name of the person being filmed. Now you are ready to use that source in any number of layers. </li> </ul></p>

Nosotros aún no podemos instalar el software sino después del 25 noviembre, el motivo o razón es que estamos esperando para nuestro computador MAC PRO incorporar tarjetas PCI con entradas SDI para nuestras Camcorders panasonic, y tenemos dos preguntas:

  • El software reconoce las tarjetas PCI con entrada SDI de cada Camcorders.

  • EL software trabaja con un estudio virtual, se puede usar con CromaKey a tres o más camcorders.

We still can not install the software until after the 25 November, the motive or reason is we are waiting for our computer MAC PRO incorporate SDI PCI cards for our Camcorders panasonic, and have two questions:

  • The software recognizes the PCI card with SDI input of each Camcorders.

  • The Software works with a virtual studio CromaKey can be used with three or more camcorders.
