Adding within a layer a previously deleted Wirecast Go shot

Hello,

 

  Last night I tested out a Wirecast Go connect within Wirecast running on a Gear 420. I added the shot successfully and afterward I deleted the shot from the layer.  A little while later, I attempted to add the previously deleted Wirecast Go source back into the layer and Wirecast said that the source (Wirecast Go IP) already existed.  Is there a way to flash out the connection so if I need to readd a previously deleted Wirecast Go source I don't get a conflict?  Thanks in advance.

Brian

    Save Wirecast Document
    Quit Wirecast
    Open Wirecast Document

    CraigS I wonder if this is another case of the Wirecast XML document not actually doing the garbage collection on the source... I don't have Wirecast Go so I can't test but it would be interesting to see if the document still references it like it does for removed and cleared from asset manager Titler Live assets.

  • CraigS Thanks for that reply.  I think I've tried that.  I was hoping there was a way to restore without shutting down Wirecast.

  • Matthew Potter Is the XML file viewable while Wirecast is running?

    Brian Willis The XML file is just literally the wcst file. You an rename a Wireacst file to use ".xml" instead of ".wcst" and open it in a code editor.

     

    Wirecast being open doesn't do anything harmful since unlike it's competitors, Wirecast doesn't automatically save changes automatically in case of crashes.

    Brian Willis I should note that editing and modifying these files are not supported by Wirecast and doing so may break the file if not edited correctly so always ensure a backup is created for critical documents.

    Regrettably, that is not possible. While matthew has told you how to edit - that will require re-opening the file, and therefore going off-air.

    As hinted by Matthew above, this appears to be related to a Wirecast bug, where deleting assets does not totally remove the data from memory and from the WCST files.
