First off, absolutely love your program. Thanks for sharing it with the world.
I've been playing around with the automation feature on camtwist. It is a great tool. However I do have one question. I'm planning on using the automation tool to help schedule a live webcam show. The show will only be available between 6pm-10pm however the cam will be online throughout the day (though I don't want people to be able to see the live footage unless it is between those hours). My solution to this was the following automation sequence:
1. Select Setup: Immediately select setup "Offline"
2. Abs pause: Wait until "18:00:00"
3. Deselect Setup: Immediately deselect setup "Offline"
4. Set Source: Immediately set source "Online"
5. Abs pause: Wait until "22:00:00"
6. Select Setup: Immediately select setup "Offline"
7. Loop (so that it will reset to #1 until tomorrows show)
Steps #1-#5 work like a charm. The issue I am having is that once step #6 happens, the setup "Offline" overlays the source "online". The Offline setup actually has a strobe like effect to it when it runs simultaneously over the online function as if it keeps looping that one offline setup. Perhaps I am misunderstanding the loop action, does this loop the previous action or does the loop reset the automation back to step #1?
Also, is there any way to deselect
like I can deselect a setup? I think if there was a command like "Deselect Source "Online"" between steps #5 and #6 that would help solve the issue.
To clarify these are the elements within each setup/source:
Setup "Offline" = image overlay showing an Offline graphic
Source "Online" = webcam, graphic overlay with logo and text overlay with twitter hashtag.
Any insight you can offer would be MUCH appreciated.
