    Real time clock

    I would love to see a real time clock that could be superimposed overthe video footage as in football matches shown on tv. There is already, the time code and it ought not to be too difficult to uuse this as the basis for creating a real time clock. I am sure that many people producing sports material would welcome this addition.

     

    I would be quite happy to pay for it as an add on.

    One of THESE free plug-ins should do the job for you. They are freeand work in S14.

    That sounds brilliant jjn. How did you manage to come across this? It seems exactly what I want and I can't wait to download it and try it out. Many thanks.

    Re: Real time clock

    Seems I got a little too excited. I cannot work out how to save the download to the specified file path. When I click to download I select 'open' but cannot work out what to do next. Can you help please.

    Hi Bob

    What operating system are you using? I'd suggest you use "save File" rather than "Open", then navigate to where the OS puts it (Downloads in my case) and then use Windows to cut and paste it to the folder specified in the instructions.

    Re: Real time clock

    Hi Bob, here are the instructions off the website:   "Save the file in the folder “ ..\pinnacle\Studio 10\plugins\rtfx\\timecodefx”

    As jjn said, you will need to Save the file (ie to Desktop) first.

    ADDED  I havn't been able to get it working myself.  It's suppose to be found in Plugins, rtfx.

    HERE is the link to the instructions.

    Hi jjn

     

    I am using windows XP. I have tried saving the file in a folder but cannot get it to appear in the list within the programme. When I explore it is there in the rtfx folder but will not come up in the programme.

     

    Dazza - I followed those instructions but could not get anywhere with them.

     

    Perhaps it does not work.

    Re: Real time clock

    Yes, it works here.

    There is a proceedure for refreshing the list of effects that you might need to try. Let me look it up.

    In the meantime, have you restarted Studio since adding the effect? It needs to rebuikd the list.

    Re: Real time clock

    I have restarted the programme but still no joy.

    jjn:

    The Declic-Video article seems mostly geared to fixing probhlems with HollywoodFX effects not showing; this Avid knowldege base article contains information on how to rebuild Studio's effects cache (so should be able to cater for other cases of "missing" plugins).

    The "interesting" part of this KB article is "Step 3: Content repair" - item 5 (browsing for and deleting the effects cache files). If you are trying to get freeware third-pary effects to show up you shouldn't have to download and use "FixMissingPixie.pxm" as that is solely for fixing problems with unlocking purchased effects (through Pinnacle + certain other premium content vendors such as Prodad)

    Re: Real time clock

    Richard -

    from your link

    1. If the content is still missing, browse to the following location:

     

    Windows Vista Users:

    C:\Users\Public\Documents\Pinnacle\ProgramFiles\Pinnacle\Studio12(or 14)\Programs\PlugIns\RTFx

    Windows XP Users:

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Pinnacle\Program Files\Pinnacle\Studio 12(or 14)\programs\Plugins\RTFx

     

    Once at this location delete the following files:

    • EffectCache
    • EditorCache

    Next, browse to this location:

    C:\Program Files\Pinnacle\Studio 12(or 14)\Plugins\RTFx\

    Once at this location find and delete the folder: HfxXML and all of its contents.

    That's exactly what the Declic batch file does, only all you have to do is run the relevant batch file Smile

    Hi jjn and others

     

    Thanks very much jjn. I have followed the link that you provided and now have it working. It is absolutely brilliant and will enhance my productions no end. Its a bit scary having to delete files but they do all come back again as it says. I can't thank you enough for your excellent and speedy help.

    My mistake - I didn't scroll down far enough; after seeing the stuff relating to closing the Easy FX editor I assumed that the tip was just for getting home-brewed HFX to show up in the list Embarrassed
