Hi, nice feature in VDJ 8.

1) Also I want some settings "fade" for overlay video clip. Now is only possible to "volume" trigger, which isnt, what I want.
2) Move video clip (not stretch) in screen, for example, if I have logo, I need to align to top right corner..TellyMedia works ok, but there is some limitaion - setting of layout align of media is global, I need separate of each video clip.
3) Better chroma key - green / blue is not always remove properly
4) Add filters to separate video clip in sampler - for example I want greyscale for logo clip, boom auto for dance clip

Thanks


Since you mentioned TM and it's limitations I am responding here even though this is wishes for sampler. I have included a couple notes about transparency and image scaling as it applies to the sampler and maybe should be looked at.

TellyMedia has been a building block for audio and video for a long time. The focus for TellyVisuals has been on text handling and layout. The libraries used for TellyMedia can now do most everything that TellyVisuals can do but these abilities are not surfaced in TellyMedia and won't be. TellyVisuals will take on audio, video, slideshows, and the sort of thing TM does in addition to what TV does now.

TellyVisuals puts things in containers called panels. Every panel can be sized, moved, have images, color, borders, transparency. You can have as many panels as you like. Panel images can be a file image or the VDJ Video. So you can resize the VDJ Video or give it other attributes. TellyVisuals is evolving into what I call NTV. New TellyVisuals and is pretty stellar so far and is taking a long time. Main challenge is going to be able to surface the power in an easy way. Some of it will need to be script-able by you to get the most out of it. Trying not to run on about things.

A simple TellyVisuals layout that contains and animated gif in upper right, an image being rotated by TV in lower right. The silver surfer video being played by VDJ, and a transparent video overlay (BLUEMARK) being played by TellyMedia. The sampler plays HAP alpha videos with alpha but does not seem to play the more common formats with alpha that contain alpha.



I shut down TM and made the panel that is showing the VDJ video larger. The image for every panel has scaling modes like aspect, stretch, mirror, etc It appears the sampler can only stretch the image unless I am missing something.

@locodog

that's sampler script is something I would love to try.

work in progress my friend, I've got the variable logic working and I've had to use a long way round to get the sample to switch off, I'll pm you once it's proved and maybe staff can give me a pointer to avoid the long way round [posted in 8.2 technical], [only got 3 samples set up like this at the moment I'm wanting 45]

It's a shame the following still haven't been implemented - these things would make the sampler SO much more powerful and easy to use, and I would imagine some of these things would be fairly easy to implement:

Apply same settings to a selection
* Being able to select multiple samples and apply the same settings to them (i.e. looping, audio/video switches, BPM, etc).
* Being able to set multiple thumbnails at once (eg. select several samples, and say "use the frame at 10 seconds into each sample as the thumbnail image".

This would be a massive time-saver for users and from my point of view are the most important on this list. When people import products like my VDJ Toolkit series that feature over 100 clips, they have to configure each of those clips individually when they should just be able to select them all and apply the same settings.

Cover art bug
Currently, if a video clip has 'cover art' embedded in it, VirtualDJ uses this as the thumbnail. But when you make any changes within the Sampler editor, this thumbnail is lost meaning you have to then manually select a frame to use as an icon.

Sampler/deck video priority
It seems that the sampler always overrides the video playing on the decks - would be good to be able to select a priority, so the sampler could play 'under' the deck video, and act as a fall-back if an audio track is played that doesn't have a video. I imagine people might want to change this frequently, so maybe a toggle switch within the video mixer panel. I guess the same would go for video generated by effects plugins - maybe have a little draggable icon for each video source, so the order can be easily rearranged when needed?

Play modes
* A mode where only one sample can play at a time, regardless of sample bank (avoids the confusion of having multiple clips playing but only being able to see one, and saves having to switch off one clip before switching on another).

* A mode where multiple samples from one group could be selected and played in a looping sequence (ie each clip plays through once then moves to the next, and eventually loops back to the start of the sequence again. So it acts like a video playlist)

+1 for the Sampler/deck video priority

Great features Phil if they can be utilised

I would love to have a "beatwave" associated with the sampler output to see the sync between the sampler and the decks.
If the sampler is assigned to a deck, that deck's beatwave should be playing the sample aswell.

it would be nice to change the pitch of a sampler

Posted Thu 15 Jun 17 @ 2:01 am
ability to drag an image over a sampler bank to set the image of that sampler bank

Posted Thu 15 Jun 17 @ 2:05 am
+1 for sampler pitch change. I currently use a vst for that but has latency but if it was an on board change through vdj it might eliminate the latency.

What would you use that for exactly? Pitch up/down by semi-tones the entire sampler, or for each sample, or pre-set in sample-editor?

I see it as a padpage dial 1 picks the sample, dial 2 picks the scale, the pads call the sample at a semi tone.

if each sample player had its own key control you could use it to match sample key to the key of the playing track as it is now we have to use our ears or know the keys ahead of time.

thanks

If you route the sample output through a deck, does the key control of the deck not affect it?

I can only get the key control to work if the sample slot is loaded to a deck @groovindj, There are very few VDJ audio effects that are non external VST's that I can get to work without the sample slots having to be loaded to a deck first unless I'm doing something wrong. Echo and Flippin Doubles are the only effects that come to mind that the sampler slot doesn't have to be loaded to a deck first in order to get the effect to work.

Posted Thu 15 Jun 17 @ 11:54 pm
@Adion, it could be used something like or similar to the the sampler loop command 'sampler_loop "current" 0.5 play" while pressed' but instead like 'sampler_key "current" +/-1 play" while pressed'. It would be more versatile like that instead of the being preset because that can be done when the sample is being created and then your stuck to that same key (where's the fun?). I usually use the pitch control for the last bar of a phrase of an acapella sample when I want to emphasis something or an entire quick one shot sample rarely do I use it for an entire sample but do on occasion.
I don't have to tell the majority of the users out there that one of the MANY things that sets VDJ apart from the other DJ softwares is how powerful it can be once you start to understand scripting. With scripting and the sampler being used with effects you can use VDJ not only as a DJ software but as a live production tool as well. Take "Missy Elliott - Get Ur Freak On (Peep This Remix)" for example. Get a dope beat, an acapella sample, a few effects to apply to the acapella and BAM something like this can be done live.
So while I'm here in the forum I might as well make another request.....
Adding the VDJ native effects to work with the sampler output without having to load the sample slot to a deck first.

sampler bank1 and sampler bank 2 both visible at the same time in replacement of a decks 3 and 4 while keeping another sampler bank open in the side view.

No actions available to either name/rename/create Sampler Bank or batch-set samples to Sync mode.

Feel free to add all these in the Wishes Forum

I would love to know the amount of requests or wishes that have been made for the video sampler alone never mind any other part of the software in the past three year's and how many have actually being implemented, these wish list forums are only here for padding and serve no real purpose.
